New Nanomarkets Report Predicts OLED Lighting Markets to Reacr $9.7 Billion in 2016

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 Executive summaries for registered press are available upon request.

Key Findings:

  • 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 $3.4 billion.
  • 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 the business.
  • 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 sources.
