GLEN ALLEN, VA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2011) - Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has released its latest report titled, "OLED Lighting Markets Asia-2011," that says the market opportunities in Asia for OLED lighting will generate $2.1 billion by 2016. The report is the latest in NanoMarkets' continuing coverage of the global OLED lighting marketplace. Additional details are available at

NanoMarkets will soon release additional reports during April and May that will address the market for OLED lighting in Europe, a forecast of global manufacturing for OLED lighting, and an update of the firm's global market forecast for OLED lighting. 

Key findings:

  • NanoMarkets' report states that Japan will dominate the OLED lighting business through 2014 despite lingering issues from the earthquake and tsunami. Japanese consumers have greeted LED lighting enthusiastically and will do the same as OLED lighting gets onto retail shelves. Meanwhile, Japanese firms are taking up key positions in every part of the worldwide OLED lighting supply chain from design and manufacture through to wholesale distribution. Sales of OLED lighting in Japan are expected to reach $1.1 billion by 2016.
  • Although, the addressable market for OLED lighting in China is limited, NanoMarkets expects the Chinese OLED lighting market to reach $420 million by 2016. OLED lighting markets and manufacturing in China are expected to benefit from current Chinese industrial policy which emphasizes the need to develop high-tech industries to serve the domestic Chinese market.
  • Korea is early in its embrace of OLED lighting and NanoMarkets predicts sales of only reach $230 million by 2016. But, the influence of both Samsung and LG cannot be understated as both have made a strong commitment to OLED lighting and NanoMarkets notes how Samsung's strong international brand has brought OLED displays into the mainstream. The firm sees great potential for OLED lighting from Samsung's involvement in the technology.
