Three years ago, in the Flexible Display 2015 Report, Second Edition, Touch Display Research forecasted flexible display industry will take off in 2015 to 2018. That forecast became reality. We are witnessing flexible OLED display, flexible e-paper display, flexible LCD and other flexible technologies having a big leap right now.
In the recently published “Flexible Display & Flexible Touch 2018 Report”, 3rd Edition, we analyzed over 10 flexible display technologies in 13 application markets, with detail of substrate material type and form factor. This report profiles over 270 companies working on flexible display and flexible touch screens.
