Organic Electronics Market Drivers:

Increasing applications of OLED displays

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing applications of OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) displays. As a result of these improved characteristics in image quality, these are less flexible and consume less energy than the regular displays. These are widely used in many consumer electronics, including smartphones, televisions, and wearable devices. This growing trend is where OLED technology is playing an indispensable part in the next generation of electronic devices, thus lending major support to the market. Research estimates that in 2023, 3.4 million notebook PCs with OLED screens and 3.7 million tablet computers will be delivered for a total of 7.1 million units. These figures are expected to rise to 12.1 million OLED-displayed tablets and 5.1 million laptop PCs in 2024, for a total of 17.2 million.

Growing demand for flexible and lightweight electronic devices

One of the major factors driving the global market is the increased demand for electronic devices that are flexible and lightweight. This shift reflects evolving consumer preferences and technological advancements that prioritize portability, innovative design, and user comfort. Organic electronics, employing materials such as conductive polymers and small molecules, inherently offer flexibility and a lower weight profile compared to traditional inorganic materials, aligning perfectly with current electronic device trends. These materials are now widely used in applications such as flexible displays, lighting panels, thin-film batteries, and solar cells. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory reports that the power-conversion efficiencies of the ultra-flexible organic, perovskite, and quantum dot solar cells are 4.2, 12.85, and 10%, respectively, with power-per-weight output values of 10, 29.4, and 6.5 W g−1. This demonstrates that, in comparison to devices that do not prioritize flexibility, there is still a discernible efficiency difference.

Rising demand for automotive and healthcare industries

The rise in the global market is largely influenced by the escalating demand in the automotive and healthcare sectors. The healthcare industry is experiencing a transformation through organic electronic devices, especially with the advent of flexible wearable sensors that monitor vital signs and health markers in real time. In the automotive industry, these are essential for creating advanced, lightweight, and energy-efficient components such as OLED displays for infotainment and lighting, flexible sensors, and organic photovoltaic cells. These components are crucial for enhancing vehicle functionality and sustainability, thereby fostering innovation in car designs. It is projected that around 5 billion FHE circuits will be manufactured in 2030 based on an unbiased study conducted across more than 20 application sub-categories, from printed RFID tags to vehicle temperature sensors and from skin patches to industrial monitoring.

Organic Electronics Market Opportunities:

Widening application scope in the consumer electronics industry

The organic electronics market is undergoing significant expansion, with a rise in demand globally in recent years. This growth is attributed to the unique attributes of organic materials, which are flexible, lightweight, and cost-effective to manufacture, making them increasingly popular in various consumer electronics applications. These materials are now being integrated into an array of products, such as flexible displays, OLED TVs, e-paper, lighting solutions, and thin-film batteries, catering to the consumer's growing demand for portable, durable, and innovative electronic devices. The adaptability of organic electronics has enabled manufacturers to create previously unimaginable devices, such as foldable smartphones and wearable technology, thus pushing the market to new horizons. According to a recent Mizuho Securities analysis, OLED screens for feature phones and smartphones are expected to expand in 2019. According to Mizuho, OLED adoption will account for 29% of the display market by 2026 and increase to 80%.

Increasing applications of micro and mini-LED technologies

With growing applications, the global market has been affected in a notable proportion due to the increased application of micro and mini-LED technologies that are pivoting for next-generation display and lighting solutions. Leading technologies: it is known for its brightest output, superb energy efficiency, and color accuracy of life over traditional LEDs. Higher pixel density due to the small size of individual pixels results in sharply defined, finely detailed images, which are indispensable for high-resolution displays.  A research project predicts that if they are commercialized, these LED displays would be able to replace all screens. They can range in size from 0.5-inch microdisplays to 1000-inch stadium displays. The integration of such LEDs offers new design freedom in the domain of electronics and might open new avenues for ultra-thin, flexible, and transparent displays. This further extends their application to diverse sectors, with such versatility, and therefore drives the organic electronics market, complementing organic light-emitting devices to further push the conventions of display technology.

Key Technological Trends & Development:

Immersive Displays

The global market is greatly benefiting from the rise in immersive display technologies, which are transforming user experiences by providing an innovative depth of visual realism. These displays, crucial in virtual and augmented reality settings, are predominantly realized through organic electronics, thanks to their ability to produce vibrant displays, high contrast ratios, and flexible form factors. Organic materials, especially in OLED technology, are fundamental in creating screens that offer true blacks and a broad spectrum of colors, facilitating an experience that closely mirrors reality. The inherent flexibility of organic components also facilitates the design of curved or bendable displays, broadening the horizons for novel design and interactive interfaces. In research that was released in Applied Physics Express, researchers from Meijo University and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) have led a team in the successful development of these LEDs. They have achieved 330 pixels per inch of pixel density and have created intricate mesa designs.

Flexible and Foldable Display

The growth of the market is significantly influenced by the technological advancements in flexible and foldable displays, which are ushering in a new era for electronic devices. These displays utilize the inherent flexibility of organic materials, such as OLEDs, allowing manufacturers to craft innovative, bendable, and rollable screens that transcend traditional design constraints. Such flexibility heralds the introduction of unprecedented products, including foldable smartphones, wearable electronics, and roll-up displays, providing users with unparalleled versatility and convenience. In comparison to the same time in 2022, sales of foldable smartphones increased dramatically in Q4 2023, accounting for 4.2 million units, according to a recent analysis.

Quantum Dot OLED

Quantum Dot OLED (QD-OLED) is a new feature that adds up to a combination of both Quantum Dots and OLED technologies, thus enabling a greater marketplace for organic electronics. This is hybrid technology with quantum dots, which produce bright pure colors with plenty of energy efficiency, together with OLED, offering high contrast ratios and true blacks with a speed responding time. In general, QD-OLEDs should allow for better color volume, better color accuracy, higher peak brightness, and a wider color gamut when compared to regular displays, meaning an overall better-looking image. This improves performance standards for display from television, smartphone, and monitor while opening new scope for its application in high-end energy-efficient ultra-slim displays. In the third quarter of 2023, Samsung Electronics reported a 29.9% market share based on revenue in the worldwide TV market.
