Development of Micro-LED Technology Expected to Grow Due to Rising Global Demand

Published on : Jan 13, 2017

Albany, New York, January 13, 2017: A recent analysis on the development of micro-LED has been encapsulated in a new report added to the vast portfolio of Market Research Hub (MRH). This study highlights broad information on the advances which takes place from the last few years and also in the coming years by the developments of major vendors in the market. These developments are analyzed from the perspective of patented technology including key inventors, major players and technological deployment.

As LEDs were developed and evolved globally, the micro-LED display has appeared in a completely new form as of 2010. According to the study, increasing interests from electronics organization like Apple and Sony during the recent period have exhilarated further investments in micro-LED and augmented the program for its commercialization. Compared with the existing technologies, micro-LED offers momentous perfections in many ranges including brightness & contrast, energy competence and response time. MicroLED is a self-emitting display technology that uses tiny LEDs for sub pixels. Additionally, MicroLED technology places the foundation for Sony’s “Crystal LED” and Samsung’s “QLED”.

Since 2010, manufacturers have been constantly developing micro-LED display technology through integration and R&D. In 2012, Sony developed a prototype micro-LED display but it didn’t gain very much popularity and sales were also low. After that, a new technology AMOLED, took all the highlights because of its amazing features. It is a type of display i.e. found in TVs and mobile devices. AMOLED displays also offer greater power saving in comparison to traditional OLED displays.

The report also covers its application in the large-sized panel as well as advantages such as low power consumption, enhanced color saturation and higher brightness. By looking at these features, Apple aims to use micro-LED to create sharp, HD displays. Thus, the main concern is to reduce the size of LEDs used for each pixel. As of 2016, manufacturers leading in micro-LED patent applications include Apple affiliated Luxvue, Sony, Leti, X-Celeprint and others. Among these, LuxVue i.e. acquired by Apple, sparked the market interest again because its microLED technology was nine times brighter than OLED and LCD.

In the next section, the report also presents the list of major companies who are the main factors behind these developments. It includes Apple, Dimatix, Fujifilm, Google, ITRI, Sony and Thomas Innovation. However, Micro-LED received large sums of R&D funds and grabbed attention from leading enterprises due to its specs outshine LCDs and matching OLED picture quality. However, at the current stage, micro-LED displays are still unusual because of three main barriers namely- bonding on a LED component, chip bonding and mass transfer of Micro-LEDs.
