Smart-watch demand to grow over the next year - OLED display manufacturers see opportunities

Digitimes has reported that OLED panel makers are increasingly optimistic about opportunities in the wearables segment following developments by Smart-watch suppliers.

The overall Smart-watch market is expected to reach about 30 million in 2015, with OLED and on-cell touch as the main panel technologies.

It is much expected that the Apple Watch will see some of the highest shipments in 2015, with industry estimates currently pegged at around 15 million units.

OLED display makers are therefore keenly watching developments - Apple Watch, the Huawei Watch, the LG Urbane Watch and Zenwatch WI500Q.

While the makers are optimistic, they noted revenues from relevant panel shipments may be limited due to the average-size display shipped reaching around 1-2 inches.
