Global Mini LED Market: Overview

Mini-LED is not a novel concept, but, undoubtedly it is an evolutionary one. In the glut of display technologies, it has secured a position well in between the two end of the spectrum—micro LED and standard LED. A vast assortment of display technologies being used in TVs, PC monitors, and smart displays has combined LEDs to expand the color gamut. The aim for device makers is always to make display as real-life and engaging. Incorporation of mini LEDs in the display technologies for devices has given a tough competition to OLEDs.

The drive for the mini-LED market has been so vast that speculations are rife that prominent technology company Apple is likely to bypass OLEDs and use mini LEDs for high-end iPad and MacBook models by 2021. The key propositions for the relatively new technology among early adopters are wide color options, high contrast and high dynamic range, and local dimming and dimming zones features. Most importantly, a good trade-off between price and performance that is possible with mini LED has imparted a solid impetus to the evolution of the mini LED market.

Global Mini LED Market: Growth Dynamics

Mini LEDs over the past few years have come to occupy a vast potential for smart display for TVs, LCDs, and smartphone. This is a key trend imparting a steady momentum to the market. Numerous device makers are combining mini LEDs with OLEDs for two reasons: cost competitiveness and to reduce reliance on OLED providers. Typically, display based on OLEDs and micro-LEDs have led to products falling at the higher end of the price spectrum, making their commercialization difficult.

On the other hand, mini LEDs haven’t see many varied applications, with a major part of the technology seemingly in conceptualization stage. Despite this hindrance, mini LED backlight are seeing substantial demands in automotive displays and selected TV panels. Panel manufactures are placing their bet on dimming zone features to give the mini LED technology its importance. These trends are reinforcing the potential of the mini LED market.

All said and done, going forward, players will put stakes on price reduction to gain a foothold in the mini LED market. Advances in chip production might show them the way. Furthermore, they are adopting novel chip fabrication technologies to reduce the cost of semiconductor panel. Another area where the mini LED is seeing a promising potential is its demand in smartphone display.
