LG Display to develop 60-inch flexible OLED by 2017

Most of the talk about OLED today revolves around consumer electronics, but the Korean government wants to make sure Korea leads the way in commercial applications. As such, it has chosen LG to be part of the “Future Flagship Program” and has tasked the company with developing a 60-inch flexible OLED display by 2017. The transparent flexible OLED is planned to be deployed in applications such as a window displaying information at bus stations, aquariums and retail stores.

The program’s primary sponsor, The Ministry of Knowledge Economy, expects to generate $56 billion in exports and create 840,000 jobs through the research and development of transparent and flexible displays.

LG Display said that the project will be able to further widen the technological gap between Korea and the fast-growing economy of China in the display sector.
