The OLED TV is brighter, lighter, thinner than LCDs, which means it is a major leap in technology. Plus, the OLEDs offer perfect contrasts, real colours and blur-free pictures without requiring filters. It is clearly the best thing that could happen to the television industry, and it is one of the most popular to enter the electronic market.
Unlike liquid-crystal (LCD) displays, the (OLED) organic light-emitting diode does not need a coloured filter or separate light. With the OLED, every pixel is a light source of its own, while liquid crystals are needed by the LCD to create various colours, which is ultimately the drive behind the huge demand and preference of OLED over LCD displays for both television sets and smartphones.
OLED technology enables thinner designs in TV and Smartphone devices since it requires fewer layers when compared to LCD, which further increase the consumer as well as manufacturers preference for OLED. Its superiority over LCD is also one of the major OLED display drivers in the market. By 2022 according to predictions, the OLED global market size will reach well over $21.6 billion and a CAGR of nearly 25%.
OLED TV Advantages vs Disadvantages
There are quite a few pros and cons to consider before rushing out to buy the latest OLED television set:
OLEDs are manufactured out of plastic are thinner and lighter, while they are also much brighter than LEDs and much more power efficient, as they hugely reduce power consumption. OLED is also flexible due to the light-emitting layers. Most individuals prefer the OLEDs displays offering a wide angle 170-degree view.
Currently, the biggest challenge for the market is the limited lifespan, while the other major concern is the exceptionally high production cost. One of the main concerns is how easily the OLED display surface is damaged by water, which is also one of the reasons why there is a low adoption of OLEDs in devices.
Why OLED Appeals to Millions
With the global focus on green living, the OEM is working on providing products that meet the standards of the green environment and OLEDs are eco-friendly in that its disposal is less environmentally harmful, which makes it an eco-friendly product. With OLED displays not yet as commercialised, it remains one of the most difficult tasks for manufacturers to provide it at a lower cost of production.
Currently, the volume of investment is low, which keeps production price and the price of the OLED products very high. What makes the difference is when the OLEDs are compared to LCD in lifespan, the OLEDs have a 15,000 hours shorter lifespan, which might be the decision maker. Industry experts feel that the few OLED shortcomings will not influence individuals decision to switch over to OLED products, especially since major brands such as LG and Samsung have already made use investments in OLED.
