In comparison to LCD, OLED's have a lower manufacturing cost and energy consumption. Additionally, they can operate without a backlight as they are light-emissive and have a higher contrast ratio and offer sharper images.
The demand for thin and flexible displays in portable and wearable mobile devices in consumer electronics and healthcare is anticipated to increase the demand for flexible OLED displays. Flexible displays in smartphones add to convenience by offering larger displays that are foldable and rollable. The flexible displays have tremendous application in the field of retail, automotive, consumer electronics, and many other end-user segments. Recently, E Ink launched a 32-inch flexible display ideal for digital signage in transportation systems like buses and trains where advertisements are likely over curved surfaces. Owing to vast applications and market potential of the OLED display, market companies, and governments are investing in the research, development, and advancement of the display technology. The emergence of quantum dot technology has provided an efficient alternative to OLED technology and may slow the growth of the market.
The flexible display market is segmented based on the material substrate into plastic and glass. Based on components used, the market is segmented into substrate, backlight panel, and organic material. The market is further classified into small, medium, and large displays.
By geography, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. Flexible displays are majorly used in smartphones, tablets, wearables, automotive and television displays. Moxi Group, a Chinese Company, has made a phone that is so flexible that it can be worn on the wrist like a watch; the smartphone is priced at USD 765; Samsung and LG are also anticipated to roll out their flexible smartphones soon.
