SID 2016 Monday Seminar: from mainstream to emerging display

May 25, 2016

SID 2016 DisplayWeek is held in San Francisco, California this week. I taught a seminar on Monday morning, titled “Display Market Forecast –LCD, OLED, e-paper and touch, from main stream to emerging display”.

I’m honored to have been teaching Monday Seminar for 3 years at SID DisplayWeek. According to the conference organizer, there are over 600 attendees for the Monday seminar this year, which is a record high in SID history.

During the 90-min seminar, I first listed the hot trends in display industry in 2016 and 2017. Then I provided the global display industry market forecast to 2026. The overall display industry growth is slowing down but there are hot trends in many areas. Then I discuss the new opportunities in display market:  quantum dot display, flexible and curved LCD display, high resolution, OLED display, e-paper display, embedded touch screen, active pen and touchless human-machine-interaction sensors.

More and more people joined the seminar, many of them had to stand for the one and half an hour seminar. From the questions the attendee asked at the Q&A session, I believe many people are interested in 3 areas: quantum dot, flexible display, touch screen.

More analysis can be found in the “Quantum dot 2016 report”, “Flexible, curved and foldable display report”, Touch and Emerging Display monthly report, June 2016 issue.

For those audiences who has given me your name cards, I’ll send you one monthly report– “Touch and Emerging Display report”– for free next week.

Thanks for reading,

Apple beats Dell at 27” 5K

October 16, 2014
4K TV has been in the market since 2012. 4K display monitor also entered the market since 2013. Thus 4K resolution is not “very advanced” by now. What “wow” people now is 5K and 8K displays. As we covered in “Touch and Emerging Display” January 2014 report, several companies have demonstrated 5K display or 8K displays.
Today, Apple announced its new iMac All-in-One PC with a 5K (5120X2880=14.7 million pixels) retina display. The Retina 5K display has four times more pixels than the standard 27-inch iMac and 67 percent more pixels than a 4K display.
The iMac with 5K display is shipping now at $2499.

Dell announced a 27” 5K LCD monitor last month, in September 2014, but indicated “The Dell UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor is USD $2,499.99 and will be available in the fourth quarter of this year.” It’s not available yet today. Therefore, Apple beats Dell at 5K.

Which other companies are shipping 5K? How did Apple achieved 30% power saving?
More analysis and comparisons will be in the “Touch and Emerging Display” monthly report.
