Digitimes: RiTdisplay starts to produce OLED lighting panels

According to Digitimes, PMOLED display maker RiTdisplay has started to produce flexible OLED lighting panels, targeting the automotive, medical and consumer (home) applications.

For the automotive market, the RiTdisplay is apparently collaborating with Luminit, through its Taiwan-subsidiary Luminit Automotive Technology. RiTdisplay is holding 30% at LAT which is already starting to supply OLED lighting panels for automotive brake lights and started low-volume shipments in Q1 2019.

According to digitimes, RiTdisplay has also signed an agreement with Taiwan's Electronic and Optoelectronic System Research Laboratories (EOSRL) to co-develop OLED lighting for commercial applications based on EOSRL's roll-to-roll manufacturing technology.

In the last few weeks there are some interesting news regarding the OLED lighting industry. LG Display seems to pull out of the market (or perhaps, just change its focus to automotive OLEDs). On the positive side, Taiwan's Lumtec has also started to mass produce OLED lighting panels.
