Study Goals and Objectives
The goal of this report is to provide a detailed and comprehensive multi-client study of the global market for dielectric materials and associated business opportunities in the future. The report’s objectives include providing thorough coverage of the underlying business issues driving the dielectric materials market and assessing new and potential products that existing companies are developing. Social, political and other issues as well as international markets are also covered. This technology/marketing report begins with an overview of dielectric materials. The report then moves on to provide a detailed assessment of markets by material types, display technologies, intermediate applications and end-user applications. The report assesses market growth, materials, production, status of commercial development, barriers to entry and market leaders. The report also provides a comprehensive analysis of the structure of the dielectric materials industry along with brief profiles of the leading dielectric materials companies globally.

Reasons for Doing This Study
Dielectric materials are used in all types of display panels, including thin-film transistor liquid crystal displays (TFT-LCDs), light emitting diode liquid crystal displays (LED-LCDs), organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays, active matrix organic light emitting diode (AMOLED) displays, plasma displays and other
displays. Rising demand for better visual entertainment has resulted in innovation in display technologies. Technology has developed from cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs to plasma displays and from TFT-LCDs to LED-LCDs. There is currently high demand for OLED and AMOLED displays, which will be followed in the future by other innovative display technologies with low power consumption, and sharper and brighter resolution. During the forecast period, flexible, curved and foldable, transparent and 3D displays for smartphones, tablets, monitors and TVs are expected to be seen on the market. Rising populations, higher disposal income and demand for larger and better visual entertainment will boost demand for dielectric materials in display panels across all regions.

Intended Audience
This study provides the most complete accounting of dielectric materials used in various display technology currently available in a multi-client format. It provides the most thorough and up-to-date assessment that can be found anywhere on the subject. The study also extensively quantifies the many important facets of market developments in dielectric materials. This, in turn, contributes to the determination of what kind of strategic response suppliers may adopt to compete in this market. Audiences for this study include marketing executives, business unit managers, commercial development directors and other decision makers in dielectric materials and display panel companies. Technology suppliers, suppliers of competing and ancillary materials, end-use product manufacturing companies and other companies operating in peripheral areas to the market also represent key audiences.

Scope of Report
The scope of this report is comprehensive, covering the present status and future prospects for dielectric materials used in display technologies in North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America and the rest of the world (ROW). The ROW region includes all countries in the Middle East and the African continent. The scope of this report includes diverse dielectric materials such as metal oxides, amorphous silicon, plastic substrate, metal foils and others. These are analyzed in detail, including technology developments, market conditions and opportunities, and five-year forecasts. The role of new technologies is also reviewed. This BCC Research study analyzes the current global market in detail and identifies the most promising market opportunities. The ultimate end-use markets—consumer electronics, automotive, industrial, medical and others—as well as the global market for dielectric materials used in display technologies such as TFT-LCD, LED-LCD, OLED, AMOLED and others are examined in detail.

The goal of this study is to explore new market opportunities for dielectric materials used in flexible, curved and foldable transparent and 3D displays for smartphones, tablets, monitors and TVs. The report provides a review of the dielectric materials used in the display industry and outlines its structure as well as the many companies involved in providing these materials and technologies. The competitive landscape involving the main players in the market is also discussed. The values presented in the forecast tables represent the value (in millions of dollars) of the sales of dielectric materials used in display technologies in end-use product markets. All growth rates mentioned in the tables and the text are based on the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2016 through 2021. Estimated values used are based on manufacturers’ total revenue. Projected and forecasted revenue values are in constant U.S. dollars, unadjusted for inflation.

Information Sources
The research methodology adopted for this report is qualitative in nature. A triangulation approach was also employed to aid validity. Initially, a comprehensive and exhaustive search of the literature on dielectric materials used in display technologies was conducted. Then, various secondary sources, including journals and related books, trade literature, marketing literature, other product/promotional literature, annual reports, security analyst reports, information from trade associations and other publications, were used to gather additional information on dielectric materials. In the second phase, a series of semi-structured interviews were conducted with marketing executives, engineers, business unit managers, engineers and other personnel at dielectric materials companies.
Other sources included academics, systems integrators, technology and materials suppliers, technical experts, trade association officials, government officials and consulting companies. These sources provided a rich source of data. Subsequent analysis of the documents and interview notes was iterative.

This BCC Research report, Dielectric Materials for Displays: Technologies and Global Markets, is based on quantitative and qualitative methods. The data points were collected through a variety of primary (telephone interviews) and secondary sources (associations, business journals, annual reports, websites of various companies and other historic market data found online). Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to identify the market figures. All dollar values represent the manufacturer level.
