PSS In OLED And E-Textiles Is Anticipated To Openup The New Avanue For PEDOT Market

The PEDOT Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4.43 Bn or billions in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Overview:

Poly(3,4-ethylene dioxythiophene) polystyrene sulfonate (PEDOT:PSS) is a polymer blend material that exhibits excellent conductivity and optical properties. It is used as a hole transport layer in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and organic photovoltaics (OPVs). PEDOT:PSS displays good transparency in the visible region, high work function, good environmental stability and film-forming properties. It can be processed from solution and has high conductivity after appropriate treatment or formulation.

Market Dynamics:

The primary drivers boosting the PEDOT market growth are growing demand for OLED displays and increasing adoption of e-textiles. OLED displays are increasingly being used in smartphones, tablets and TVs due to their thinner profile, richer colors and wider viewing angles compared to LCDs. The hole transport layer of an OLED comprises PEDOT:PSS which provides better charge injection into the emissive layer. The incorporation of advanced electronic functionality into fabrics is an emerging trend with the development of e-textiles. Conductive polymers such as PEDOT:PSS allow integration of electronics such as lights, sensors and heaters into wearable fabrics.
