TOKYO -- Canon has developed a material for organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panels that does not use rare metals, Nikkei has learned.

This move comes as the Japanese company aims to reduce its dependence on major rare metal producers such as those in China. Canon plans to commercialize the technology within a few years, paving the way for securing stable production without being affected by geopolitical risks.
