And since it saves up space by eliminating the need for large TVs or monitors, it adds a sense of openness to the workplace.

LG Display unveiled its first proprietary Transparent OLED back in 2019 with its 55-inch Transparent OLED displays with 40 percent transparency. Since then the company’sTransparent OLED displays have been applied in various spaces outside the home such as shopping malls, museums, and subways.

Transparent OLED technology leverages the advantages of OLED’s unique self-emitting nature in several ways. Considering that Transparent OLED displays have a slim design, high transparency and light weight, they can be widely utilized for various industries.

According to a recent study by leading global consulting firm the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the global transparent OLED display market is predicted to expand continuously at a compound annual growth rate of 116% over this decade, reaching a total value of around $2.7 billion by 2025 and $10 billion by 2030.
