At the big picture level, not much seems to have changed in the OLED materials space since 2013. It is still a business that is dominated by Samsung and one that appears to be perpetually waiting; for OLED TVs, for OLED lighting and for solution processed OLED panels.

The arrival or non-arrival of large OLED lighting panels and TVs will have a profound impact on the amount of OLED materials that will be needed, while solution processing will need a different kind of OLED material. These factors are just as important to the OLED materials business as they were in 2013. But they remain just as uncertain.

This is not to say that nothing happened during 2013 in the world of OLED materials. Mobile OLED displays got bigger to meet the needs of tablets and “phablets.” This may not give the boost to the OLED materials firms that they hoped for from OLED TVs and lighting panels, but it is significant in terms of market growth for the OLED materials sector. In addition, important things happened at the corporate level, most notably the acquisition of Novaled by Cheil/Samsung and the disappearance of Plextronics. We also note that there are a growing number of Chinese OLED materials suppliers who are making claims that they are selling to the OLED display makers in Korea as well as to the emerging OLED industry in China itself.

In this year's report, in addition the usual granular, material-by-material projections of OLED materials, we focus on analysis of how OLED materials supply chains are shaping up and what the long-term factors for marketing success for OLED materials suppliers will be. And, of course, we also discuss the latest technical developments in OLED materials and architectures.

This report contains detailed volume and revenue forecasts for materials used for OLEDs broken out by application, material type, functionality, and deposition method wherever possible.
