One year ago, Panasonic and Idemitsu Kosan dissolved their joint OLED Lighting company PIOL (established in 2011). It was then reported that Panasonic will withdraw completely form the OLED lighting market to focus solely on LED lighting.

Today IDTechEx posted an interview (which apparently took place a few months ago during the Printed Electronics USA trade show) with Panasonic's Professor Komoda, which says that Panasonic actually still has high hopes for OLED lighting, as it represents the best technology for diffused and flexible lighting solutions. Professor Komoda sees OLEDs "well accepted" within three years.
