DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/563zk7/global_lcd) has announced the addition of the "Global LCD Backlight Unit Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
An LCD backlight unit forms a significant component of an LCD display device. It provides illumination for the projection of an image on the screen. LCDs do not produce light; therefore, backlight units act as a light source for displaying the image. Three major types of backlight units used for illuminating LCDs are cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL), white-edge light-emitting diode (LED) or LED edge, and direct LED. LED backlight units are more popular than CCFL backlight units.
One of the major trends witnessed in the market is an increase in the number of technological innovations. Original equipment manufacturers in the Global LCD Backlight Unit market continuously add new features to their products, resulting in the regular launch of innovative products in the market.
According to the report, one of the major drivers of this market is an increase in the popularity of flat panel displays among consumers because of their light weight and display quality. The increased popularity of LCD devices is expected to drive the adoption of LCD backlight units and foster the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges that the market faces is the weak demand for LCDs. High prices and decreased adoption of computer PCs and notebook PCs are the major reasons for the weak demand for LCDs.
