OLED Lighting Materials Market Sees USD$1.3 Billion Revenues by 2018; Smart Street Lighting Takeoff with Shipments Surpassing 17 million by 2020; LED Phosphors to Pass $1 Billion in 5 Years
FARMINGTON, Conn., Oct. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Today, nearly 95 percent of the materials market in OLED lighting goes into specialty OLED lighting applications like designer kits, luxury luminaires, and high-profile installations. But by the end of 2019, 80 percent of the total $2.8 billion OLED lighting materials market will go into residential and commercial general illumination applications. Another 18 percent of the OLED lighting materials market will be used in automotive lighting applications.
Global Information Inc. (GII) is pleased to announce three new market research reports highlighting the global market segments of OLED and LED technologies.
Markets for OLED Encapsulation Materials 2012 - 2019
NanoMarkets forecasts that the market value of functional OLED materials – emitters, hosts, and blocking/transport/injection materials – will grow from its current value of approximately $1.7 million in 2012 to over $1.1 billion in 2019. The market value of solution-processable small molecule OLED materials will account for nearly $400 million by 2019. Growth in solution-processable materials will help to bring costs down and allow OLED lighting to better compete with other, alternative lighting applications. The market value of encapsulation in OLED lighting applications is expected to grow from under $1 million today to a value of over $50 million by 2015 and over $450 million by the end of the forecast period in 2019.
Within the report NanoMarkets also examines the product development and marketing strategies of the major players in the OLED lighting materials sector, including UDC, Novaled, BASF, DuPont Displays, Merck/EMD, Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, and others. The report indicates which firms are the "companies to watch" and which will be the likely winners and losers in the OLED materials space.
The report also contains detailed, eight-year forecasts for the materials used for OLED lighting applications, in both value ($ millions) and volume (kg or area of material) terms, broken out by product type and application.
OLED materials covered include Emissive Layer Materials -- Emitters and Host; Electron and/or Hole Injection, Blocking, and Transport Materials; Electrodes – Anodes and Cathodes; Encapsulation Technologies; and Substrates – Rigid glass, flexible glass, plastics, and metal foils
The report also breaks out the core, functional OLED materials (emitters, etc.) by deposition method: Vapor-Deposited Small Molecules; Solution-Processable Small Molecules; and Polymeric Materials.
OLED lighting application sectors covered are: General Illumination – Residential and Commercial; Specialty OLED Lighting; and Vehicular OLED Lighting.

Yole Developpement expects the phosphor market to grow significantly during the next five years, and potentially pass the $1 billion mark by the end of this period. However, a significant fraction of this market will remain captive. This report provides average selling price trends and detailed forecasts by phosphor type and composition.
This new report also provides a detailed list of more than 50 companies that are involved in LED phosphor manufacturing. More than 20 of them are located in China, where we're observing the emergence of vendors with improving quality and potentially credible IP to satisfy the tier-one Chinese LED makers that have world class ambitions and who favor IP and performance vs. price.

Smart Street Lighting - LEDs, Communications Equipment, and Network Management Software for Public Outdoor Lighting: Market Analysis and Forecasts
Unit shipments of LED lamps for street lights will rise from fewer than 3 million in 2012 to more than 17 million in 2020. At the moment, however, nearly all smart street lighting projects are still in a pilot phase, with only a handful of large-scale installations in place to date. LED street lights currently cost roughly four times as much as their high pressure sodium counterparts, placing them out of reach for many cash-strapped municipalities. The financial case for networked control systems can be even more difficult, according to the report. For this reason smart systems are being installed primarily to reduce maintenance costs, improve monitoring, and enhance public safety, rather than energy savings alone.
The report, "Smart Street Lighting", analyzes the global market opportunity for lamp upgrades and networked lighting controls across five categories of public outdoor lighting: highways, roads, parking lots, city parks, and sports stadiums. The report provides a comprehensive assessment of the demand drivers, obstacles, policy factors, and technology issues associated with the growing market for street lighting controls. Key industry players are profiled in depth and worldwide revenue and capacity forecasts, segmented by lamp type and region, extend through 2020.
