The global organic light emitting diode materials market size was valued at USD 1.09 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 1.26 billion in 2023 to USD 3.50 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.6% during the forecast period.

Organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) are composed of organic carbon and polymer-based building blocks. Unlike other display types, the diodes have small molecules that operate separately as individual displays with a minimum power of up to 2-10 volts. The materials such as substrates, encapsulation, anode, cathode, and electron transport layer (ETL) in combination with the polymer printing technology are used in the production of these OLEDs. This combination technology helps small OLED molecules to emit blue, green, and white light without any source of illumination.

The organic light emitting diode display offers improved image quality, high brightness, wide color range, and faster pixel refresh rate than the light emitting diode (LED) and liquid crystal display (LCD). Moreover, the materials offer freedom to display manufacturers for developing foldable, flexible, and transparent display designs. Therefore, the demand for the product from end-use applications such as display and lighting has drastically increased over the past few years. Thus, all these factors are helping increase the organic light emitting diode materials market share in the global electronics market.


Stagnant Supply Chain and Decreased Manufacturing of Electronic Devices during the COVID-19 Pandemic Negatively Impacted the Market Growth

The first wave of COVID-19 impacted nearly every country in the world. Countries such as India, China, the U.S., Spain, and the U.K. were highly impacted as the population density was high in these regions. The pandemic was spreading rapidly and governments of the different countries were highly concerned about it. Therefore, the World Health Organization, local health associations, and the respective country governments decided to impose lockdown restrictions on business activities and people’s mobilization. This created an unseen situation for the government, people, and different industries such as the electronics, automotive, chemical, and pharmaceutical. This resulted in a lack of workforce and interruption in the entire supply chain of the organic light emitting diode materials. In addition, COVID-19 impacted the demand for materials from the electronics industry owing to the temporary shutdown of manufacturing units and a decline in sales activities.

Despite the uncertainty in demand for OLED materials during the pandemic owing to the decreased manufacturing of the electronics display, the consumption of the materials gradually increased. This growth was associated with the surging demand for mobiles, televisions (TVs), and wearables owing to the rise in online shopping, remote studies, and other services during and after the pandemic.

Organic Light Emitting Diode Materials Market Trends

Utilization of OLED Materials in Advanced Displays is the Emerging Trend in Market

The OLED materials are widely used in high-performance displays such as monitors, TVs, wearable devices, IT devices, and small displays. These materials are ideal for the production of curved and flexible displays. This has increased the preference for OLED displays from  manufacturers leading to new opportunities in the electronics industry. Furthermore, the materials can be used to produce wearable and transparent OLED displays. These displays are expected to be used on non-flat surfaces, mobile devices, and skin patches or tattoos. For instance, in 2019, Samsung launched its very first mobile device with a foldable display with the specification of HDR10+120Hz dynamic AMOLED displays. Thus, the utilization of OLED materials in advanced and futuristic technology will create an untapped opportunity. Thus, all these factors are leading to the market growth of organic light emitting diode materials across the globe.

Despite the materials’ flexible design, foldable, and rollable nature, the material consumes very less amount of voltage. The OLED display can be operated at a minimum voltage of 2.4V to 10V. Therefore, end-use companies utilize these materials to manufacture advanced displays. For instance, in 2019, LG launched its first rolled OLED TV. The TV enabled content consumption in three viewing options with different rolling angles. These emerging technologies have raised the product demand from the electronics industry.

Organic Light Emitting Diode Materials Market Growth Factors

Growing Demand from Electronics Industry Owing to Product’s Energy Efficient Properties to Boost Market Growth

Over the past years, the electronics industry has grown drastically owing to the rise in the global population. After the pandemic, the demand for mobile phones and TVs has increased drastically. Consumers have started to buy goods, food, and electronic devices online. Furthermore, the government issued new education policies for institutions to provide education in the online mode. All such activities have created a massive opportunity for mobile and TV manufacturers. Thus, the drastic rise in demand for mobiles and TVs has boosted the consumption of OLED materials.

Moreover, these materials offer a simple and ultra-thin flexible design that can be operated in a wide temperature range. In addition, these materials are used to produce light panels with efficacies of 85 lm/W and CRI >90 that can last up to 30,000 – 50,000 cycles before the light emitting efficiency decreases. These factors will drive the organic light emitting diode materials market growth during forecast period.


Increased Manufacturing Cost of End Products owing to High Initial Capital Cost May Hinder the Market Growth

OLEDs are one of the costly display materials that increase the final cost of the end products. Despite the high manufacturing cost, the display made with organic light emitting diode materials requires a high maintenance cost in case of accidental damage. Besides, the establishment of the new OLED display plant requires a high investment owing to the required machinery and software to produce the foldable and rollable display. All these factors are anticipated to hinder the market expansion.
