Thin Film Encapsulation is a technology used in organic light-emitting diode (OLED) devices such as TVs, monitors, laptops, lamps, and cameras for protecting the displays from the external environment such as moisture, air, and water. It is a multi-layer film, made up of organic and inorganic layers. These layers are highly rigid and brittle in nature and act as good barriers. 

Thin film encapsulation has very complex design, where each component is physically, chemically, and mechanically optimized to ensure durability. Technologies that makes thin film encapsulation flexible, lightweight devices are ink jet printing, Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) and Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD).

The thin film encapsulation industry is expected to witness growth during the forecast period, owing to increase in need for preventing moisture, oxygen, and dust into electronic devices. There are various different technologies such as atomic layer deposition (ALD) and inkjet printing that is used for the encapsulation of flexible OLED displays and lighting products, thin-film batteries, photovoltaic solar cells, and others.
