Samsung and LG to Focus on Micro LED

April 22, 2020, by Jennifer Colegrove, Ph.D. Touch Display Research Inc.

This month both Samsung and LG announced to cut their LCD manufacture and to focus on Micro LED and OLED. Both Samsung and LG have been working on micro LED and mini LED for several years, among over 250 enterprises. Their supply chain analysis is provided in the newly published “Micro and Mini LED Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2020-2030 Report, Third Edition,”

In the recently published “Micro LED Display Patent Analysis and Strategies 2020 Report,” Touch Display Research Inc., a market research and consulting firm, searched and analyzed over 1000 granted patents and published patent applications about micro LED displays. Additionally, we directly conducted surveys with many micro LED display companies to confirm or clarify the patent research results.

In the newly published “Micro and Mini LED Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2020-2030 Report, Third Edition,” Touch Display Research Inc. analyzed all the methods to fabricate micro and mini LED displays along with their supply chains. More than 250 companies and research institutes working on micro LED and mini LED display technology are profiled in the database of this report.

 Once in a decade, there is a dark cloud which disrupts the economy, but which also creates an opportunity for certain industries. For example, in the 2008/2009 global economic downturn, many industries were down, but not the touch screen industry, which grew handsomely. Currently, the novel coronavirus COVID-19 is slowing down many industries, but micro and mini LED will be a bright spot. Your company’s strategic planning in the next six months could decide your success or lack of it for the next several years. We provide a lower price in a bundle of two reports: Micro and Mini LED 2020, and Micro LED Display Patent Analysis 2020. This is my humble contribution to our display and semiconductor industries.
