According to a recent market study published by Growth Market Reports, titled, “Global OLED Materials Market by Component, by Application, by End-user, and by Region: Size, Share, Trends and Opportunity Analysis, 2016-2031”, the market was valued at USD 2,038.4 Million in 2022 and is expected to grow at a moderate growth rate of 26.5% by the year 2031.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Akash Vedpathak, “Global OLED Materials Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period 2023-2031. Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) materials are compounds used in the construction of OLED devices, primarily in the emissive layer. This layer plays a crucial role in producing light when an electric current is applied, making it essential for devices like TVs, smartphones, and other display systems that utilize OLED technology. OLED materials tend to be carbon-based and emit light when electricity is applied due to a process called electro phosphorescence. The development of white OLED devices for use in solid-state lighting applications is a prominent field of research.
