OLED shipments will have a 167 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2007-2015, says a new DisplaySearch study.

The "Q2'08 Worldwide Flat Panel Forecast Report" says OLED will be the fastest-growing application over the next eight years.

DisplaySearch also predicts OLED sales will surpass $3.1 billion by 2012, a five-year CAGR of 96 percent.

The CAGR for mini-note PC applications shipments will be the second most at more than 74 percent over the same span, according to the report.
