Up until now, the OLED business has been driven mainly by display applications (smartphones, etc.) -- but the industry is beginning to target the Lighting market, based on technology specificities such as design (form factor) and efficiency. In this new battleground, OLED will have to compete with LED technology, which over the last 10 years has paved the way for a revolution in Solid State Lighting (SSL) and drawn attention away from OLED. On top of that, OLED’s high cost will not make mass-market penetration easy, and current low efficacy could slow adoption.
In the face of such challenges, can OLED become a reality for lighting applications? This is the question we’ll debate.
This webcast will cover:
- OLED’s potential in the Lighting market
- The technology approaches that could drive OLED into mass-production
- The importance of IP and internal know-how for OLED
- Strategies to enable the rise of OLED lighting.
