The main objective of this report is to analyze and forecast the commercial potential of the MicroLED market. In this report, we also provide strategic analysis of the key players in the micro-LED industry which include large global consumer electronics producers, major equipment and materials suppliers, national laboratories and universities and an array of small start-ups.
Markets and applications: In this report, we provide coverage of the following primary applications for micro-LED chips:
- AR/VR projectors
- Heads-up displays (HUD)
- Smartphones and tablets
- Computer monitors
- <65” TVs
- >65” TVs and video walls
As part of this analysis detailed (volume and value) ten-year forecasts for the MicroLED market with breakout by applications are included, the focus of these forecasts centers on displays for consumer products. We also compare micro-LED technology and associated products performance with the closest competitors in the marketplace—LCD and OLED products.
We briefly review non-display applications of micro-LEDs, i.e., lighting, lithography, LiFi, medical and others, including advantages and challenges in the micro-LED approach for specific applications, and provide rough market estimations.
Manufacturing: A significant portion of the report is dedicated to micro-LED manufacturing—mass transfer and assembly of micro-LED dies on display substrates. We review all technical approaches to develop the solution by dozens of companies and provide guidance on their likely success and expected outcome. We also briefly touch on color conversion schemes and materials, especially quantum dots, and their integration with monolithic micro-LED fabrication scheme.
In addition, there is coverage of substrate materials producers (sapphire or silicon wafers), MOCVD epi-layers deposition equipment companies, micro-LED chip fabricators, mass transfer equipment developers, quantum dot companies, testing equipment suppliers, panel makers and OEMs.
Geographical coverage: This report is international in scope. The forecasts here are worldwide forecasts and we have not been geographically selective in the firms that we have covered in this report or interviewed in order to collect information.
