Smartphones, for example, are split between organic light emitting diodes (OLED) and LCDs. TVs have a wider range of options, with quantum dots (QD) making gains. Lighting has LEDs as a growing technology, while OLED is trying to make some headway.
OLEDs and quantum dots have some elements in common. In their own way, both offer better colors gamut and are becoming more affordable. Each also offers the potential for printing.
