Combined sales of OLED and paper-like displays will reach $10.2 billion by 2011 and $14.7 billion by 2013, according to a report from NanoMarkets LC.

According to the report, roll-to-roll production processes are becoming more viable, making low-cost manufacturing of paper-like displays on flexible plastic or foil substrates possible. At the same time, advances in both inks and equipment are enabling OLED displays to be printed, significantly reducing the capital costs of display manufacturing.

In addition, the report expects paper-like displays to transform signage, offering the visual clarity, cost points and networking capabilities to enable retailers to continuously update product information. This capability is one reason shelf-edge displays will be the biggest opportunity for the paper-like display business in the next few years, generating $1.2 billion in annual revenues by 2011.

According to NanoMarkets, new forms of flexible displays will increase the utility of mobile phones, PDAs and other consumer electronic devices. Flexible displays will account for $1.7 billion in revenues by 2011.

The report also expects OLED televisions to reach $2.2 billion in revenue, taking a slice out of the LCD television business.
