NanoMarkets Issues Latest Report on Materials for OLED Lighting Applications

NanoMarkets today announced the release of its report titled "OLED Lighting Materials Market Forecast 2013." In this new report, NanoMarkets analyzes the opportunities for OLED lighting materials suppliers over the next eight years. Glen Allen, Virginia - October 15, 2012 -- Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets today announced the release of its report titled "OLED Lighting Materials Market Forecast 2013." In this new report, NanoMarkets analyzes the opportunities for OLED lighting materials suppliers over the next eight years. The report estimates that the total market for materials and technologies used in OLED lighting markets will surpass $1.3 billion (USD) by the year 2018. Additional details about the report are available at: http://www.nanomarkets.net/index.php/market_reports/report/oled_lighting_materials_market _forecast_2013. About the Report: Within the report NanoMarkets also examines the product development and marketing strategies of the major players in the OLED lighting materials sector, including UDC, Novaled, BASF, DuPont Displays, Merck/EMD, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, and others. The report indicates which firms are the "companies to watch" and which will be the likely winners and losers in the OLED materials space. The report also contains detailed, eight-year forecasts for the materials used for OLED lighting applications, in both value ($ millions) and volume (kg or area of material) terms, broken out by product type and application. OLED materials covered include: - Emissive Layer Materials -- Emitters and Hosts - Electron and/or Hole Injection, Blocking, and Transport Materials - Electrodes Anodes and Cathodes - Encapsulation Technologies, and - Substrates Rigid glass, flexible glass, plastics, and metal foils The report also breaks out the core, functional OLED materials (emitters, etc.) by deposition method: - Vapor-Deposited Small Molecules - Solution-Processable Small Molecules, and - Polymeric Materials

OLED lighting application sectors covered are: General Illumination - Residential and Commercial Specialty OLED Lighting, and Vehicular OLED Lighting From the Report: The past year has brought big changes to the OLED lighting market. Pioneering OLED lighting firms are now, finally, poised to move beyond luxury luminaires and designer kits and into larger, general illumination applications. As the industry moves out of its infancy, these new general illumination applications will not only increase the number of OLED lighting panels sold, but will also demand larger panel sizes, thereby greatly increasing the total OLED materials needs. With these trends, OLED lighting will eventually emerge as the largest addressable market for OLED materials, eclipsing even that of OLED displays, and materials suppliers will soon be able to point to tangible, commercial OLED lighting products, and to growth projections with much more confidence than in the past. However, the commercial momentum will only be sustained if materials suppliers can help to close the remaining technology related to improved OLED lighting efficiency, lifetime, and total cost of ownership, all of which are needed to enable the fabrication of low-cost, largearea, long-lifetime panels. NanoMarkets believes that the next three or four years will be critical for manufacturing and market development in advance of real growth, which will start to occur in about 2015 - 2016. During this period, materials suppliers to the OLED lighting industry can carve out competitive advantages in the following areas: materials that simultaneously increase efficiency and provide longer lifetimes, better encapsulation and substrate technologies that boost panel lifetime and expand design capabilities, and high performance solutionprocessable materials that enable low-cost/large-area manufacturing. About NanoMarkets: NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging market opportunities in solid-state lighting, energy, electronics and other markets created by developments in advanced materials.
