The market for materials used in OLED lighting will generate almost $1.4 billion in 2015, according to a new report from industry analyst firm NanoMarkets. “OLED Lighting Materials Market Trends and Impact” is the next in a series of reports that examines the commercial opportunities arising from the emerging OLED lighting market.

Key findings of the report include the following.
  • Among the various electronics materials used in OLED lighting stacks, electron transport layer (ETL) materials will contribute the largest revenues, with $370 million in sales in 2015. Many ETL materials, including carbon nanotubes, are currently being tried out by the industry.
  • Sales of emissive layer materials for OLED lighting are expected to reach almost $210 million by 2015. This is an area that has become widely protected by patents by many of the active suppliers.
  • Substrates and encapsulation will together account for almost 20% of the OLED lighting materials market in 2015. NanoMarkets believes that, in the next decade, steady growth will occur in the use of plastic film and flexible glass substrates for OLED lighting, as well as flexible encapsulation systems. This will reflect the inexorable trend toward R2R manufacturing that has already begun.
