Cintelliq projects price drops and manufacturing ramp-up show OLED lighting will become competitive by 2016

Cambridge, UK -- cintelliq limited is pleased to announce the release of their latest market report "OLED Lighting: Products, prices, capacity costs and forecasts 2014 - 2023". According to cintelliq OLED lighting is expected to become a strong competitor to LED lighting by 2016 one year earlier than previously thought. OLED lighting may have had a gentle start but it is now firmly gaining market traction as an increasing number of OLED panels and luminaires reach the market -- with the efficacy and lifetimes of current OLED panels at a performance level to last more than ten years under normal operating conditions they are rapidly becoming an alternative to LED lighting.

The potential of the OLED market in the short-term may be debated but what our analysis shows is that during the 2020-2023 period OLED lighting is set to become a major alternative to LED lighting in terms of performance, price and lifetimes.

The recent 66% price drop by LG Chem and brighter panels offered by Philips are clear signs that OLED lighting is here for the long-term as the two leading manufacturers seek to secure key market share in this rapidly growing market. Konica Minolta will launch the world's first roll-to-roll OLED panel manufacturing line in the latter part of 2014, and this will see increases in capacity and increases in choice for luminaire manufacturers and end-users. Increased competition among OLED panel manufacturers will see greater product innovation and further price falls.

By 2020 OLED panels will be priced at €200 per m2 and operate at a brightness of 5,000cd per m2 and we could see OLED panels priced at less than €14/klm. By 2023 worldwide OLED panel production may exceed 500 million 100mm x 100mm panel equivalents.
