The Next Big Thing-OLED

That’s what the crew out at Contrarian Profits is calling, folks–you don’t hear too much about OLED (organic light emitting diodes) these days, mostly because it doesn’t seem to show up in much stuff at all.  But when you look at the transfer of power between the old tube television and the liquid crystal display, you discover that technology moves in cycles, and it’s about time for the OLED to cycle in.

Quoth the Contrarian:

Overall, the OLED display market will grow to $6.2 billion, according to DisplaySearch forecasts. Last year, the total OLED market was worth an estimated $600,000. As you can see, we are looking at exponential growth, with the mobile phone market leading the charge.

But OLED just won’t be part of mobile phones.  it’s going to have a piece of every touch screen and home theater display and everything in between.  The move is on–but be sure not to be an early adopter.  You’ve all seen, firsthand, how the price of LCD and plasma fell through the floor.  Wait a while and you’ll be buying OLED goodness at plasma prices.
