In July 2013 DuPont quietly signed the second license agreement for its OLED technologies, however the company has not posted a press release or announced this news on their official website. DuPont is very quiet about this good news compared with about one and half years ago. In Nov 2011, DuPont had a news release that they signed a licensing agreement with a large, leading manufacturer of AMOLED in Asia.

Instead, this time there is only one sentence in DuPont’s Q2 2013 financial new release on July 23rd, 2013: “These declines were largely offset by OLED licensing income of $20 million.”

LG Electronics has commercialized its 55-inch OLED TV, flat and curved version this year. Samsung will also bring a curved OLED TV to market in Q3 this year. 

“AMOLED displays could offer the benefit of flexible or curved unique form factors, fast response time, and full color. AMOLED is a mature technology for small-sized displays and has been in mass production for a decade. However, AMOLED TV shipments will continue to be small in 2013 and 2014 due to the high price,” said Dr. Jennifer Colegrove, president and analyst of Touch Display Research Inc. “With the improvement of manufacture processes, such as the printing process and large generation fab, we forecast OLED TV prices will decrease to below $1000 by 2020.”
