Report Summary:

Over the last decade, there has been much hype in the mobile industry about flexible displays with a number of handset manufacturers producing prototypes which demonstrate the potential of new flexible display technologies. This hype took a step towards reality in late 2013 as the two leading proponents of flexible display technologies, Samsung and LG, launched commercial products in limited quantities.

Although these first-generation products should really be regarded as fixed curved and have little or no flexibility, they have generated a lot of interest and are regarded as precursors to truly flexible mobile devices which will undoubtedly follow once key technical, production and cost challenges are overcome.

This report investigates the potential of flexible, curved, foldable, rollable and bendable display technologies for mobile devices. It discusses the materials and technology used in flexible displays and describes the latest technological developments by the major players together with the key technical challenges and expected timelines for the introduction of new products.
