Micro and mini LED have attracted over 170 companies

June 11, 2019, By Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

Micro LED and mini LED display could disrupt the whole display industry due to their benefits of high brightness, wide color gamut, low power consumption, fast response time, etc.

In the newly published “Micro & mini LED Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2019-2029 Report, Second Edition,” Touch Display Research Inc., a market research and consulting firm, analyzed all the methods to fabricate micro and mini LED displays along with their supply chains.

There are 18 methods to fabricate micro and mini LED displays, and we analyzed and compared them one by one in the report.  Our survey found that the micro and mini LED display are gaining momentum. The number of enterprises working on micro and mini LED has increased to over 170 currently from 120 last year.

BOM (Bill of Material) of micro and mini LED digital signage, direct –view displays, microdisplays are provided in the report. This report also provides the Global display market forecast with details by display technologies to 2029: LCD, OLED, EPD, Micro & Mini LED display, and other display technologies.

The key takeaways are:

  1. Augmented reality and virtual reality is expanding in both enterprise and consumer market. Hundreds of enterprises are already using AR/VR and AI to help with saving cost. Consumer market is also gearing up with a dozen applications showing at this year’s AWE exhibition.
  2. Investment to the AR/VR and AI are accelerating.
  3. Human machine interface (HMI) still need improvement. We are still not there yet. The combination of several sensor fusions are needed. There are over 20 types of sensor technologies are used for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and artificial intelligence (AI) applications.

SID 2019 DisplayWeek is held in San Jose, California this week. I taught a seminar on Monday morning, titled “Display and Emerging Technology Market Forecast –LCD, OLED, Micro and mini LED, e-paper, touch screens and smart windows”.

I’m honored to have been teaching Monday Seminar for 5 years at SID DisplayWeek. According to the conference organizer, there are over 1100 attendees for the Monday seminar this year, which is a record high in SID history.

CES 2019: Flexible Display and Flexible Touch

Jan 26th, 2019, by Jennifer Colegrove, Ph.D., CEO and Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research

(This article is an abstract from the “Touch and Emerging Display monthly report, CES 2019 special report”. For the full analysist and report, you can subscribe here in the Market Research Report page.)

I just returned from CES 2019 at Las Vegas. It’s my honor to meet some of you in person. CES is the conference where many consumer electronic brands show case their most advanced technologies and the conference that set the trends for the near future.

At CES 2019, competition between manufacturers of flexible/foldable AMOLED display devices is heating up.

At CES 2019, Royole demonstrated the FlexPai. It features a 7.8” foldable AMOLED display with 1920×1440 pixel format, 308 ppi resolution. I had a hand on with the device and bend it. The device can only be bent backwards away from the display. When I tried to bend it inward, the mechanical structure would forbidden it, which can protect their flexible AMOLED. The device is actually light weight.

Royole took the 7.8” flexible AMOLED and used it into several other applications: a hat with the display, a T-shirt with the display, and even a purse with the display on it. The battery is hidden in the hat, or the purse. The hat and T-shirt are available for $899 each. The purse is a prototype and they hope a famous brand will adopt the technology.

In the Flexible Display and Flexible Touch 2018 Report, 3rd edition, Touch Display Research analyzed over 270 companies working on flexible display and flexible touch screens. Touch Display Research forecasted flexible, curved and foldable display will have over $75 billion revenue, which will be about 36% market share in 2027.

What is TCL’s new strategy for 2019? What is Samsung’s new strategy for 2019?

Which other startup companies are showing promising new technologies?
