Organic LED Market Outlook - 2027

The global organic LED market was valued at $32,463.5 million in 2019, and is projected to reach $203,069.9 million by 2027, registering a CAGR of 21.7% from 2020 to 2027.

OLED, also known as organic light emitting diode is a flat light emitting diode technology developed by placing thin organic films between two conductors. OLED is one of the most promising display and lighting technologies that has the capability of offering power efficiency lighting and is superior compared to the fluorescent tubes and incandescent bulbs. OLED technology helps the end user to create flexible display and lighting panels.



According to organic LED market trends, OLED technology is garnering more acceptance among end users since they are thinner, brighter, lighter in weight, more power efficient, and offer higher contrast as compared to LCDs. OLEDs offer wide viewing angles, faster response time, higher contrast ratios and more saturated colors to enhance viewing experience of end users. They are expensive as compared to LED and LCD products. However, the price of these products is expected to decrease once the products get more acceptance in the organic LED market. 

Various emerging and developed economies around the world are working towards switching to energy efficient lighting solutions. Experts have predicted that OLED technology would meet the required performance and pricing targets in the future, which would facilitate smooth transition from conventional to efficient lighting solutions. Moreover, government and industry funding for R&D is expected to boost the process of addressing the technological challenges for the OLED lighting solution.

Lighting segment is projected as one of the most lucrative segments.


High-demand for cost-effective and energy-saving OLED Lighting

Lighting consumes approximately 15% of the total global power consumption. Moreover, lights produce around 5% of global carbon emission. Thus, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has released certain guidelines on energy-saving lighting solutions to reduce carbon emissions. With rapid urbanization and rapid economic growth in Europe and Middle East countries, the lighting industry the regions are expected to grow exponentially over the next two decades, resulting in more high demand for OLED based lighting. Thus, need for more LED-based lighting for effective energy saving and cost saving is expected to drive the growth of the OLED lighting market globally in the coming years.

Increase in government initiatives towards OLED adoption

Governments from various countries have focused on deploying OLED technology-based lights to curb cost and pollution. The positive attitude of various countries toward the adoption of OLED lighting technology propels the growth of the global market. For instance, the German Government provides subsidies to municipalities to replace lightings in publicly owned facilities such as old street lighting with new OLED technology. Furthermore, the Middle East countries have the presence of “The Middle East Lighting Association (MELA)”, which is an international non-profit association formed by the partnership of Gulf Advanced Lighting, GE Lighting, Osram, Philips Lighting and Tridonic. MELA principle aims to represent the interests of the leading lighting product manufacturers in their support to legislators across the region in drafting and implementing policy, standards, and regulations for lighting related products and services across the Middle East region. In addition, the association is dedicated toward promoting energy efficient lighting practice for the benefit of global environment, human comfort, and health & safety of consumers. Therefore, all these increasing government mandates and initiatives toward the adoption of OLED lighting system significantly fuel the growth of the OLED market globally.

Commercial segment is expected to secure leading position during forecast period.


High cost of the technology

OLEDs are considered costly because of the high initial capital cost in comparison to conventional lighting technologies. Further, cost includes circuitry and power supplies required. However, this is the perspective for the initial investment, the total cost (considering the lifetime of OLED) would be lower than conventional technologies. The total cost of ownership of OLEDs including the maintenance and energy cost is lower than that of the LED and LCD sources. Also, the high investments in initial level restricts initial acceptance of OLEDs. In addition, OLED is material intensive product; hence manufacturing of OLED display or lighting is expensive. Moreover, large capital and government approval are required to set up new manufacturing plants. As the technology is comparatively new and highly skill intensive, setting up completely new manufacturing plants require large capital. This is expected to hamper the growth of the OLED market to a certain extent.
