UBI Research says that 4" to 6" AMOLED panels shipments will reach 318.8 million in 2016 - up 27% compared to 2015. The fast growth will continue to reach 505 million in 2017, 902 million in 2018, 1.17 billion 2019 and over 1.35 billion in 2020.
Flexible OLEDs will lead this growth as the new displays will be increasingly adopted by display makers globally. In 2016, flexible OLEDs will amount to 22% of the OLED market, but this will grow to 56 in 2018.
UBI was always very optimistic (too optimistic?) about the OLED market. Interestingly only a few months ago UBI estimated that 270 million AMOLEDs will ship in 2016 - but now they increased the forecast by over 10%.
