How to invest in OLEDs? Why OLEDs is the next big investment option in future?

Updated on August 10, 2017

What are OLEDs (Organic Light emitting Diode)

OLEDs have suddenly become the big talk of investment experts. Let’s see why.. OLEDS (Organic light diodes) is a lighter, thinner, energy efficient technology solution that will form the backbone of future display systems. Unlike conventional LEDS, OLEDs are made using organic compounds. Further, OLEDs are so small that they can be used as individual pixels, millions of which occupy our TV or PC screen. OLEDs can be used to make mobile phones whose display panels are flexible.

AMOLED is an OLED based display technology employing an active matrix of OLEDs. It is used in TVs, laptops and smart phones

Why invest in OLEDs?

Companies like LG, Sony and Samsung have already started manufacturing OLED TVs and smart phones.

In future, more devices will be based on OLEDs. The OLED market is expected to reach more than $40 billion by 2020. LG has already decided to invest $13 billion over the next three years in OLEDs and Apple has decided to invest $2.7 billion in OLED manufacturing.

Apart from this, many other companies are involved in the below areas associated with OLEDs:
