Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) TV panels will only account for a small portion of global TV revenue in the next six years, despite projections of Active-Matrix OLED revenue being nearly 200 times greater than it was before during the same six year period, according to iSuppli.
According to the study, global OLED TV panel revenue will surge from $10 million in 2009 to $1.8 billion in 2015. This increase will make televisions the biggest revenue-generating outlet for OLED, surpassing the much higher volume market for main displays for cell phones.
Even with this growth, just 850,000 OLED-panel TVs will be shipped in 2013 and 4.7 million in 2015, up from 25,000 in 2009.
“OLED will remain small in size and high in price, assigning it a specific niche in the global television market,” said Vinita Jakhanwal, principal analyst, small/medium displays, for iSuppli.
