According to the “3Q22 OLED Emitting Material Market Track” published quarterly by UBI Research, purchases of OLED light-emitting materials in the second quarter of 2022 amounted to $4.12 billion.
In the second quarter of 2022, the OLED light-emitting material market decreased by 2.1% compared to the previous quarter and increased by 7.8% compared to the same quarter last year. Overall, there was a decrease in panel shipments of Samsung Display and LG Display due to the off-season, but sales did not decrease significantly from the previous quarter due to rising exchange rates and the supply of new materials.
In the small OLED panel market, Samsung Display’s second-quarter purchase of light-emitting materials fell 2.2 % from the previous quarter to $1.52 billion, BOE fell 11.7% to $53.1 million, and LG Display fell 12.6% from the previous quarter to $39.7 million.
For OLED TVs, LG Display’s second-quarter purchase of light-emitting materials was $77.3 million, similar to the previous quarter, while Samsung Display’s purchase of materials for TVs was $28.3 million, up slightly from the previous quarter.
Sales of OLED light-emitting materials for each quarter were classified by layer, and the expected sales until 2026 were expressed as a 100% cumulative graph.
The OLED light-emitting material market is predicted to be $1.81 billion in 2022 and $2.5 billion in 2026. As shipments of WRGB OLEDs are expected to exceed 20 million units in 2026, purchases of light-emitting materials for WRGB OLEDs are expected to reach $900 million in 2026 from $4.3 billion in 2022. As the RGB 2stack market for IT grows, it is expected to reach $53.4 million in 2024 and $190 million in 2026.
Sales of luminescent layer and common layer were investigated to identify the overall market of light-emitting materials, and performance was analyzed by dividing them into countries, panel companies, applied products, layers, and OLED methods (RGB, WRGB, and QD-OLED). In addition, OLED market information up to 2026 was predicted by predicting the usage and sales of light-emitting materials by each company over the next five years. The Market Track Quarterly Report provides necessary information to industry workers who lead OLED industries.
