UBI Research published a new report on Flexible OLED displays, forecasting a very fast growth: from 20 million units in 2012 to 150 million units in 2013. UBI sees $6.3 billion in flexible OLED revenues in 2017. This is far more optimistic than the recent report by Markets&Markets who see the entire flexible display market at $3.2 billion in 2017.

Samsung has plans to release their first plastic-based flexible OLEDs in 2012 (although this may be delayed into 2013). LG Display hopes to start flexible OLED production towards the end of 2013. Personally I do not think both companies will have capacity enough to produce 130 million flexible panels in 2013.



Strong market research!
I wonder who will produce these 170 million flexible OLED displays by next year, Samsung and LG won't start before 2013 and all the others (except Sony) are way behind the competition... strong market research! Shows again that it's much cheaper and equally reliable to ask such forecasts to a gipsy woman with a glass ball...
