DisplaySearch, an NPD Group Company and the worldwide leader in display market research and consulting, has released its 2006 OLED Technology Report. The report presents a comprehensive examination of the fledgling OLED industry, which reached revenues of over $500M in 2005 up 18% Y/Y. The OLED display makers are in transition from passive matrix to active matrix centricity, not unlike LCDs in the early to mid 1990s. The difference is that AMOLED display makers expect to ride the benefits of the existing TFT infrastructure created for LCDs. Two of the major players in OLEDs, Pioneer and Kodak, have recently announced changes in their strategies, shifting their emphasis away from the production of AMOLEDs. The report will show the impact of these changes and how other display makers will shift to AMOLEDs and the impact on the applications targeted by AMOLEDs. It forecasts display units and revenue by Application, Panel Size, Panel Resolution, Material Usage, Active vs. Passive Matrix Driver Technology, Small Molecule vs. P-OLED.
