Korean electronics manufacturer Samsung powerhouse is expanding research and development into AMOLED technology that can be used in wearable clothing and flexible electronics. The AMOLED industry is going to quickly evolve into a multi-billion-dollar industry by 2020, because of high global demand from numerous computer companies.
Samsung’s focus on wearable technology will involve using the new-generation “stretchable” AMOLED display, as the company realizes the traditional smartphone market is becoming saturated. Samsung and rival LG are the only two companies able to manufacture curved displays on a wide-scale, as other companies trying to catch up. If the smartphone industry is reaching a higher saturation point, being able to implement AMOLED into future products could give Samsung and LG a significant edge.
