OLEDs Drive Metal Oxide Backplane Adoption

7km² of metal oxide backplanes will be used in the global OLED industry in 2024, according to IDTechEx, enabling a $16 billion market at the module level. These components will also be in desired for the LCD industry, which will add at least 1km² of area demand.

Metal oxide backplanes are seeing accelerating adoption, promising low leakage currents, high mobility, amorphousity, stability and a wide bandgap. It is the mobility that makes them especially relevant for OLED and 3D displays, although they can also be used to enable high-resolution, low-power LCD displays.
