The flexible display market consists of sales of flexible displays by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that are used in virtual reality (VR) headsets, digital cameras, laptops, and televisions. A flexible display refers to an electronic display printed on a foldable plastic membrane that can easily be twisted. These displays can withstand being folded, bent, and twisted, and they are more flexible as compared to a flat display. These have better durability and are lightweight in nature.

The main types of flexible display are OLED (organic light-emitting diodes), LCD (liquid-crystal display), EPD (electronic paper display), and others.

The OLED-based flexible displays are used in televisions, computer systems, laptops, and smartphones owing to their better image quality, high degree of flexibility, and consumption of less energy. OLED refers to a light-emitting technology designed by placing organic films between two conductors. The different form factors include curved display, bendable and foldable display, and rollable display. The various substrate materials used are glass, plastic, and others that are used in smartphones and tablets, vehicles, public transport, and other applications.

North America was the largest region in the flexible display market in 2021. The regions covered in the flexible display market report are Asia-Pacific, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North America, South America, Middle East and Africa.

The rising demand for OLED-based devices is expected to propel the growth of the flexible display market going forward. An OLED refers to an organic electroluminescent (organic EL) diode, which is a light-emitting diode, that contains an emissive electroluminescent layer that gives good quality to the picture. Most flexible displays are made of OLED displays because they give better picture quality even when the screen is bent and twisted.

For instance, according to Displaydaily, a US-based technology news publisher, in 2019, there were 3.4 million OLED display TV units sold, and this number is expected to grow by 19% to $6.4 billion units by 2024.
