Facebook, Plessey, Apple and Micro LED Industry

March 31, 2020, by Jennifer Colegrove, Ph.D. Touch Display Research Inc.

Yesterday, Plessey just announced it signed a commercial agreement with Facebook to help Facebook prototype and develop new technologies for potential use in the AR/VR space. Plessey’s micro LED technology is one of the 18 methods to manufacture micro LEDs.

In the newly published “Micro and Mini LED Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2020-2030 Report, Third 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.

Since Apple acquired LuxVue Technology and all its patents, more and more companies and research institutes have begun research into micro LED displays. More than 250 companies and research institutes working on micro LED and mini LED display 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. This Micro and Mini LED 2020 report can be a helping hand right now.

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.

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

CES 2020: Micro LED and mini LED reached higher level

Jan 11, 2020, by Jennifer Colegrove, Ph.D., CEO and Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research

I just returned from CES 2020 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 last year’s CES, micro and mini LED were hot topics (see my blog last year: CES 2019: Micro LED and mini LED made big splash).

This year, at CES 2020, micro and mini LED displays reached an even higher level.

Several existing micro LED display exhibitors continue to showcase larger and more beautiful micro LED digital signage.  Samsung brought a 292” 8K micro LED “The wall” at the CES 2020 exhibition.

One pleasant surprise this year is Konka. At CES 2020, Konka is all-in on micro LED digital signage—they showcased not one but two micro LED signage: one 8K and one 4K. Detail is in the Top 20 technology trends in 2020–CES 2020 special report.

SID 2018: flexible display, quantum dots and smart windows are hot topics

May 24, 2018, by Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D.

I just returned from SID DisplayWeek 2018 in the beautiful Log Angeles, California. It was my honor to meet some of you in person.

When I asked the president of SID– Dr. Helge Seetzen at Tandemlaunch—on Tuesday, he indicated this year’s conference had broken the record with over 6400 people registered, and there may be more in the next couple of days.

According to the SID Seminar chair—Dr. Ray Ma at Nanosys–, the attendees of the Monday seminar is also a record high, with over 800 people registered for Monday seminars. Good job, applause to the SID DisplayWeek committees.

I was excited and honored to be invited and taught a seminar at SID DisplayWeek again. The 90-minutes seminar is about Display and Emerging Technologies Market Forecast –LCD, OLED, e-paper, touch screen, smart windows and voice recognition.
