Materials are Deciding the Future of Flexible Technology
Materials are an integral and fundamental part of a display that predicts the quality, resolution, reliability and performance of the displays. Currently display industries are being ultra thin and flexible, which are achieved with the help of best industry materials. Over the last five decades, there has been tremendous growth in the display industry, and transforming the perspective of the customer with regards to displays.A fewnew materials were discovered and have been incorporated by some big players in this industry, and cementing the future of flexible display technology.
Materials play a pivotal part in the fast-growing flexible display market. The best performance of the display can be assured with the selection of the most efficient and productive materials, and by choosing the most cost-effective materials in order to maintain the price at an affordable levels. Flexible displays have become ubiquitous and will continue to do so in different devices such as smart phones, tablets, laptops, desktops, HDTVs, wearable devices, and so on. Due to major development in technology and easy availability of the materials, flexible display manufacturing is increasing rapidly and is expected to increase exponentially in thefuture. However,the technological advancement is facing problems for the new manufacturers as it takes time for them to understand their workings procedure and implement them in their production process.
New technologies that are recently introduced in the market such asOLED, TFT-LCD, LED-LCD, and LCoS are driving the market with full force, and they are expected to grow further. Materialsthat are mainlyusedin the manufacturing of the display panels are indium-tin-oxide (ITO), indium-gallium-zinc-oxide (IGZO), a-silicon, LTPS, PEN, PET, liquid crystals, photonic crystals among the others;wherein,polymers such asPEN and PET are new materials in the market that are used largelyfor making flexible displays.
According to the study, the new materials mentioned above are the main game-changers for flexible display manufacturers, as they would propel the industry to unbeatable technological excellence.For instance,it can be said thatthese new innovations in the flexible display industry will take time to get settled in the market, but with the time,it will touch the pinnacle of technological innovation and result in market growth.
