Coronavirus’ impact on display market

March 10, 2020, by Jennifer Colegrove, Ph.D. Touch Display Research Inc.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has infected more than 100,000 people globally and killed over 4000 people.

At both the SID Los Angles one-day conference, and FLEX 2020 MEMS& Sensor Congress in February, 2020, on behalf of Touch Display Research, I discussed the coronavirus impact, the crisis and opportunities.

Touch Display Research forecasts the global display market will decrease 2% year-over-year in 2020, if the coronavirus outbreak can be controlled before May 2020. And I strongly believe the virus will be controlled before May.

Then I provided market forecast of quantum dot (In the Quantum dot 2020 report, we forecast Quantum dot display market will reach $52 billion by 2030), micro and mini LED (Micro LED patent analysis 2020 report), OLED market forecast, etc.

Thanks for reading, I pray to God to help our doctors and scientists to find the cure and control the virus.
