No. Of Pages » 276
 OLED displays are thinner, lighter, and offer better color performances compared to backlit liquid crystal displays (LCD). OLED displays are already mass produced for mobile phones and OLED will continue gaining market share against LCD technology. 
   
 The next evolution is plastic displays and flexible displays. IDTechEx expects the first flagship phone with a flexible display to ship in 2017. Based on this scenario, the market for plastic and flexible AMOLED displays will rise to $16bn by 2020. 
   
 Glass-based displays will remain an important technology, especially in TV applications where scale-up and cost reduction are still big challenges. Flat and curved OLED TVs were recently launched by Samsung and LG. While the market for OLED TV panels will be relatively small in...

Middle Distillate Refining Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Globally refiners continue to face several challenges as environmental policies are becoming increasingly stringent. The profitability of refiner’s is influenced because of strict regulations on sulphur content of gasoline & diesel oil and curbs on refinery emissions. Agencies such as the International Maritime Organizationhas already proposed changes in specifications of bunker fuel oil. These regulations will drastically impact the refinery’s profitability which would then have a tough time increasing or maintaining current refining margins. Thus those refineries which...
