From backlights to direct view LED displays: MiniLEDs in 2022 and beyond – WEBCAST

Sign in for replay

Apple and others brought miniLEDs to consumer markets. But can the technology survive OLED improvements? Will it thrive in direct view LED applications?

With an expected 26% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) for shipment volumes, miniLED backlights can supercharge LCD panels. They can compete against OLEDs in high-end, high-added value consumer markets. Yet thorough performance, tear down and reverse costing analyses of multiple flagship devices have showed that good miniLED performance does not come cheap. Meanwhile, OLEDs are a moving target, with continuously improving cost, performance, and capacity. However, unlike OLEDs, miniLEDs do not require massive capital expenditures. Suppliers are proliferating at all levels of the supply chain. Will miniLEDs survive these OLED improvements? Which technology will win the battle in major applications such as televisions, tablets, notebooks, automotive and computer monitors?

MiniLEDs are a multifaceted technology. Beside the consumer market, investments are also driven by opportunities in direct view LED displays. In this business-to-business market, narrow pixel pitch miniLED displays are growing at a 24% CAGR. Will miniLED technologies dominate in direct view LED displays? Will they converge with microLEDs and break into the consumer market?

This webcast will discuss miniLED markets, applications and supply chain as well as technology trends such as driving schemes and implementation with thin-film transistors or discrete drivers, printed circuit board versus glass substrates, die size and architecture.
