I just attended the press day of CES 2021 online. I’ve been attending CES every year for the last 13 years. It’s my honor to meet some of you virtually. 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.

Since four years ago, Micro LED and mini LED had been making big splash at every year’s CES. Hundreds of thousands attendees at CES were “wowed” by the beautiful, over 100”, or over 200” micro and mini LED digital signage and TVs. I have surveys and interviews with many micro LED and mini LED suppliers and display suppliers at the exhibition. This year micro LED and mini LED continue to be the bright spot and ready for exponential growth.
Samsung announced to bring direct-view micro LED TV to the market in this March.
LG announced to bring mini LED backlight with local dimming QNED TV to the market this year.
As we know, several other TV manufacturers are bringing or will bring mini LED backlight TV to the market in 2021 as well.
In the recently 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. More than 250 companies and research institutes working on micro LED and mini LED display are profiled in the database of this report.

This Micro and mini LED report includes a PowerPoint file (>420 pages) and an Excel database, which profiled over 250 companies and research institutes working on micro LED and mini LED display and backlight technologies.
BOM (Bill of Material) of micro and mini LED digital signage, direct–view displays, and micro displays are provided in this report as well. The BOM of Apple’s upcoming iPad Pro with mini LED backlight is also analyzed.
