OLED Materials Markets-2008
  • OLEDs
  • Emerging Electronics

    As OLEDs finally begin to take off for both lighting and display applications, they are creating new opportunities for materials firms. This report and analyzes and quantifies these opportunities and identifies where the challenges are. The report addresses all of the segments of the OLED materials market and covers both polymers and small molecules, including materials for the new solution processable small molecule approaches to OLED fabrication. It also covers materials for all layers of the OLED from the photoactive materials themselves, through the electrodes and encapsulation materials. The report will provide detailed forecasts of materials broken out by type and application and will include strategic profiles of the leading firms who are developing and selling OLED materials of all kinds.
