NanoMarkets, a leading
industry analyst firm based here, has just published a new report covering the
OLED lighting market in which the firm predicts that revenues from OLED lighting
products will reach $9.7 billion in revenues by 2016. Further details about
the report, "An Opportunity Analysis for OLED Lighting: 2009 to 2016"
including an excerpt and table of contents are available at www.nanomarkets.net.
Executive summaries for registered press are available upon request.
- In the general illumination market, what OLED lighting has going for
it are low power consumption, long lifetimes and high luminous
efficiencies. Also, thanks to the technology's diffuse emission and
slim, lightweight form, OLED lighting makers believe that they will
enable designers and builders to create aesthetically appealing
lighting environments. By 2016 NanoMarkets projects that sales of
OLED lighting into the general illumination market will have reached
- Backlighting of mobile communications and computing devices is also an
opportunity for OLED lighting because of its low power consumption.
OLED backlighting is also an improvement over other widely used
backlighting technologies; it is far more efficient and longer lived
than electroluminescent (EL) lighting and does not need expensive
optics as do HB-LEDs. Revenues from OLED backlighting are expected to
reach $2.1 billion by 2016.
- Spurred on by the phasing out of incandescent lamps in Europe and the
U.S. and the aesthetic and environmental inadequacies of compact
fluorescent lights (CFLs), a growing number of firms are backing OLED
lighting. In its new report NanoMarkets identifies almost 20
commercial firms who are active or who have announced their entry into
- NanoMarkets believes that lighting may offer a more of a compelling
business case for OLED technology than as a display technology. In
addition to the slowdown in the display business, OLED lighting will
continue to be the recipient of extensive funding as an "energy
efficient" lighting technology from both government and private
