In the past year, OLED makers, materials firms and others have become increasingly interested in new business opportunities that will be available as the result of OLED, phosphorescent and (to a lesser extent) carbon nanotube lighting. Interest in this new form of illumination is being driven by a number of factors ranging from its likely low power consumption to the fact that - unlike high-end displays - it can be built without any need for complex active matrix backplanes.
This is a new report that analyzes and quantifies the opportunities available in OLED and printed lighting. The report examines the factors driving the market as well as key trends in materials and manufacturing. The report analyzes the strategies of the main firms and research groups involved in this space as well as the likely commercial impact of various government funded projects in the U.S., Europe and Japan. In addition to discussing the devices themselves, this report also provides a forecast broken out by technology platform and application area in volume and value terms.
