The world's leading display conference, SID DisplayWeek, is now over, and it was a great event. This is just a quick first impression post - you can expect many more OLED-Info articles in the next couple of weeks after we get back to the office and sort through all the materials, interviews, photos and videos we have.
While LCD is still the dominant display technology in many applications, it is clear that OLEDs are taking over as the most promising technology, and we have seen exciting presentations and demonstrations from many companies. It was interesting to see how the three Chinese OLED makers at SID, BOE, Visionox and Tianma, have large booths with many flexible and foldable OLED displays and end products, while Samsung and LG Display both have very limited show areas compared to previous years. This is an interesting evidence to China's rising dominance - but also to Samsung's and LGD's focus on more consumer trade shows such as CES.
OLEDs certainly take the center stage at SID - but MicroLED was certainly another hot topic. While there are many challenges towards commercialization, it is clear that almost all display companies are seriously looking into Micro-LED technologies as a replacement for OLEDs in several markets. Finally - we were happily surprised to see several perovskite QD companies in the show as well. Perovskite are very promising in many applications and is definitely a material to put on your radar!
