OLED General Lighting Market Analyst & Forecast - January 2013

An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is a light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compounds, which emit light in response to an electric current. This layer of organic semiconductor material is situated between two electrodes. Generally, at least one of these electrodes is transparent. ElectroniCast assumes that the OLED panel general-lighting market will grow beyond the "light-bulb" mentality to a broad base of applications, which currently may not even be in the idea-stage.

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that lighting for buildings accounts for more than 20 percent of U.S. energy use. Over the next 20 years, the agency estimates that widespread adoption of LED and OLED lighting could reduce electricity demands 60 percent and prevent almost 260 metric tons of carbon emission. Worldwide consumption value of general lighting OLEDs only reached an estimated $34.8 million in 2012; however, this consumption value is forecast to increase to $5.3 billion in the year 2022.

Average selling prices (ASPs) are forecast to decrease substantially as the devices become more readily available to the open market in a competitive environment.  Since the ASPs are forecast for such a steep decline, some of the overall consumption values for 2013 are forecast to be nearly flat compared to 2012.  Generally, the consumption value is forecast to increase with strongly rising quantity growth partially offset by declining average prices.

LED Packaging

The package substrate market will attain a CAGR of 20% between 2012 and 2017, growing to nearly $900M by 2017. Concerning LED phosphors - despite strong price pressure, the associated market will also enjoy double-digit growth, with a CAGR of 20% during the period 2012 - 2017.

According to the report, LED packaging cost reduction is driving new technology and design adoption, and fuelling a booming equipment and material market. Depending on the device type, packaging can represent 40% to 60% of LED total cost. As such, packaging represents the single-largest opportunity for cost reduction, which is required in order for the industry to access the "Holy Grail" that is General Lighting. However, if you're expecting this cost reduction to come from standardization, you can abandon all hope. The creativity of LED engineers and specificities of each application have led to an infinite number of package type and formats: Single or multiple chips, low and middle-power Plastic Leaded Chip Carrier (PLCC), ceramic-based high-power LED, small and large arrays, Chip On Board (COB), etc. This profusion of styles is inhibiting LED manufacturing cost reduction by multiplying the Stock Keeping Unit (SKU), thus preventing standardization of the manufacturing process and the associated economies of scale.
