I just came back from the trip of Touch Taiwan and IDMC (International Display Manufacturing Conference) 2015 conference.
On August 27th, Konica Minolta’s manager, Mr. Takeshi Hakii gave a keynote presentation about mass production of flexible OLED lighting. He introduced Konica Minolta’s new plant for mass production of plastic substrate flexible OLED lighting panels. The new plant adopted unique roll-to-roll manufacturing method and can produce plastic white OLED and color-tunable OLED panels.

Hakii-san also discussed the technology challenges of flexible OLED lightings for high efficiency and long life time.
In the newly published “Flexible OLED Display Technologies and Market Forecast 2015 Report”, Touch Display Research analyzes flexible OLED display, flexible OLED lighting, flexible touch screen, and flexible battery technologies.
