Paper-Thin Displays: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Paper thin displays (PTDs) refer to a type of ultra-thin displays with thickness equivalent to a sheet of paper. Key benefits of PTDs spurring their popularity include lightweight, shatter-proof, and bendable features. Paper-thin displays are emerging as the display of choice as they work without a backlight and are also reflective. Paper-thin displays not only offer a good reading experience, but also enable energy savings. Also, compared to organic light emitting devices (OLEDs) and transmissive liquid crystal displays (LCDs), the outdoor readability of paper-thin displays is relatively high. The global market for paper-thin displays is witnessing strong growth, driven by the increasing focus on developing devices that are thin, compact and small. The miniaturization trend is exerting increasing pressure on manufacturers to reduce overall display thickness thus generating significant OEM interest in PTDs. Also benefiting the market are developments in materials, design and fabrication of flexible displays. With consumer demand for portability and convenience continuing to grow strong, interest in displays that are paper-thin and flexible is rising.

At present, demand for paper-thin displays is mainly concentrated in the portable electronic devices sector, primarily for use in smartphones, tablets, and E-readers, among others. With technology innovations that facilitate production of low cost flexible color displays, penetration in other application areas is expected to gain traction in the coming years. Specifically, PTDs offer enormous potential for use in advertising signage, given their ability to enhance the impact of digital advertising.
