Japan enters display fray with world's first printed OLED panels

Maker JOLED enters a crowded market, but is hobbled by a lack of funds

JOLED's panels are relatively lightweight and exhibit excellent color reproduction, making them suited for rail cars and aircraft among other uses.

TOKYO -- The world's first organic light-emitting diode panels produced by inkjet printing have finally hit the market. JOLED, the Japanese maker of the unique panels, is sending its initial shipment to Sony for use in medical monitors.

The company, established in 2014 by Panasonic and Sony, is looking to carve out a place in the burgeoning OLED market currently dominated by South Korean manufacturers.
