AMOLED Light-Emitting Materials Report - 2015
  • Analysis of organic light-emitting materials used in the mass production of AMOLED and WOLED panels
    • Light-emissive layer materials: Red, green, blue, yellow-green materials 
    • Common layer materials: HTL, ETL, EIL/ETL, and CPL materials
    • Functional aid materials: Dopant, CGL, aETL, and prime layer materials 
    • 2013–2014: Samsung Display led the growth of the light-emitting materials market
    • 2015–2016: LG Display is expected to lead the market growth with WOLED panels.
  • Analyses of global demand for the light-emitting materials from 2013 to 2018, consumption by major panel maker, and the supply chain, as well as the forecast of potential investment by other panel makers
    • The AMOLED light-emitting materials market is forecast to reach $420 million in 2014 and $550 million in 2015 in value. 
    • The materials market is predicted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 35% in value and 41% in unit from 2013 to 2018. 
    • The major companies that have led the materials market growth include are Dow Chemical Co., Duksan Hi-Metal Co., Idemitsu Kosan Co., Universal Display Corp. (UDC), Samsung SDI (former Cheil Industries), Doosan Electro Materials Co., LG Chem Ltd., Merck Group and Novaled AG (acquired by Samsung SDI). They are expected to continue to dominate the market. 

The “AMOLED Light-Emitting Materials Report – 2015” by IHS provides the analysis and forecast of organic light-emitting materials used in the production of active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) panels. In particular, this report deals with the light-emitting materials of red, green, and blue, along with the materials for common layers including hole transport layer (HTL), electron transport layer (ETL), electron injection layer (EIL)/ETL, and capping layer (CPL). It also covers dopant materials used in emissive layers, along with the materials for functional layers, such as charge generation layer (CGL) used in a stack structure, additional ETL (aETL) used to improve blue efficiency, and prime layers used to enhance light extraction. The report examines consumption of such materials by panel maker and the status of materials suppliers.

The light-emitting materials market has grown in tandem with the growth of the AMOLED industry. Before the production of large-sized AMOLED panels started in earnest in 2014, Samsung Display Co, the producer of the fine metal mask (FMM) RGB-type panel, was the biggest customer purchasing most organic light-emitting materials available in the market. However, in 2015, LG Display Co. that produces white OLED (WOLED) panels and two to three Chinese panel makers are expected to increase their consumption of the materials.
