This report covers the market for Mini LEDs and Micro LEDs.
The displays market is constantly advancing, with new technologies allowing for greatly improved brightness, HDR, and colour reproducibility.
Recently, mini LED and micro LED have attracted major attention in the displays market and are being implemented in products by consumer electronics giants such as Samsung and Apple. The market is projected to explode in the next few years, taking a significant chunk of the displays market and pushing into wearables, Augmented Reality (AR) and smartphones.
The Mini LED market is expected to grow significantly in 2021 and the Micro LED market is now at the early stages of commercialisation. Large electronics companies such as Samsung are producing LCD TVs featuring Mini LED backlights and are anticipating significant demand. Apple is planning to bring a Mini LED backlight iPad Pro to the market this year and integrating it into other product offerings.
Mini LED backlights are utilized in large-screen TVs, monitors, automotive and industrial applications.
Improvements Mini LED offer over incumbent display technologies include:
- High brightness.
- High contrast ratio.
- Low power consumption.
- Higher efficiency.
Micro LED will start to gain market traction in 2021, with companies including Sony and AU Optronics Corp. planning to launch new consumer products this year. Micro LEDs are targeted at direct view displays.
Improvements they offer include:
- High efficiency
- High brightness-readable under sunshine (>10,000 nits)
- High colour saturation
- Ultra-high resolution (>2000 dpi with Si backplane)
- Ultra-low power consumption
- Quick response rate (on/off switching within nano-seconds).
- Long lifetime (>80,000 hours).
These properties make them attractive for application in very large TVs, AR/VR and automotive applications. Other applications include wearable/implantable optoelectronic devices, light communication/light interconnection, medical treatment, spatial imaging etc.
