OLED revenues to reach 88 percent CAGR in '07

The organic light emitting display (OLED) market is seen to generate revenues of $85 million in 2002, and reach $3 billion by 2007, according to DisplaySearch's annual OLED Technology Report.

DisplaySearch predicts that five applications, namely mobile phones, mobile phone sub-displays, PDAs, digital cameras, and camcorders, will account for most of this rapid growth. By 2007, OLEDs are expected to grab greater than the 4 percent share of the FPD market.

"Perhaps no display technology, since the TFT-LCD, is expected to have such a profound influence on the market as OLEDs," said Barry Young, DisplaySearch VP and author of the report. "We predict that it will not only compete against AMLCDs in selected markets, but fulfill the promise of creating new markets."

Further, DisplaySearch predicted that active matrix OLEDs (AMOLEDs), said to deliver clear performance advantages over conventional LCDs in many small applications, will gather a 30 to 40 percent market share in selected applications. In the next 12 months alone, the market research firm said that at least four major AMOLED fabs are expected to begin production.

Additionally, while most intend to use LTPS (low temperature poly-silicon) TFTs, there is a growing interest in the use of a-Si TFTs as backplanes for AMOLEDs. DisplaySearch said that passive matrix OLEDs (PMOLEDs) will have moderate success in niche applications such as mobile phone sub-displays and in car audio consoles and industrial markets. Further, the technology is expected to begin moving into larger sizes as the OLED substrate sizes shift into the 3rd and possibly 4th generation, after reaching parity with small/medium TFT-LCDs.
