OLED vs LED Lighting 2013-2018: Forecasts, Technologies, Players
DUBLIN, June 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Research and Markets (
http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2pzjp9/global_commercial) has announced the
addition of the “OLED vs LED Lighting 2013-2018: Forecasts, Technologies, Players”
[http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/2pzjp9/global_commercial ] report to their
This market will grow to 1.3 billion USD by 2023
The lighting industry is a large, global and yet fragmented market place. The
fragmentation is driven both by technology differentiation and customer need diversity.
The technologies vying for market share include incandescent lamp, compact fluorescent
lamp (CFL), halogen lamp, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and, most recently, organic light
emitting diodes (OLED). The target markets are also very diverse, each service different
needs and demanding different price points. These markets include residential,
architectural, hospitality, shop, industrial, office, and outdoor.
OLED and LED lighting are both solid-state technologies and offer overlapping value
propositions per market segment. They will therefore compete directly in many instances.
LED lighting has come a long way and offers a better performance than OLEDs, and that at a
lower cost. OLED lighting will therefore only gain market success if it clearly defines
its unique selling points and carves out initial market niches.
This report is divided into two parts: (a) technology and (b) market assessment. The
first offers a comprehensive yet detailed overview of both LED and OLED lighting, going
through fabrication processes, material compositions, technology roadmaps, and key
players. The device attributes of each technology are also critically assessed, examining
parameters such as colour warmth and controllability, flexibility, efficiency, surface
emission, lifetime, wafer size, and luminaire design.
The second section offers a blunt market assessment. Detailed cost projection roadmaps
are developed, factoring in estimated cost evolution of the integrated substrates,
encapsulation layers and materials. Changes in system configuration and material
composition required to enable the cost roadmaps are outlined. We also factor in
production costs including capital and labour. Values are expressed in units of $/unit and
The value proposition of OLEDs for all market segments is critically analysed. Each
assessment examines parameters such as light quality, form factor, technology mix
diversity, price sensitivity, light controllability, lifetime and light intensity. The
report also rigorously compares the performance of OLED and LED devices

This research also develops detailed market forecasts. Here, we estimate the market
share of OLEDs per lighting market segment, calculate the total lighting area per sector,
estimate the lumen output per segment, and forecast the equivalent number of units sold
per sector. Combining all our analysis, we forecast the monetary value of the market at
module level per market segment.
