The hottest miniled focuses on the high-end medium

  • Detail

Miniled focuses on the high-end and medium-sized market. Next year, the market size will reach $1.6 billion

submillimeter light emitting diodes (Mini LEDs). Due to the cost problem, it was originally expected that new products would be available in the fourth quarter of this year, but now the listing schedule has been delayed. Chen Shuxun, an analyst at the green energy division of ledinside, said that mini LEDs will reach a market size of $1.6 billion in 2019, with high-end and medium-sized E-sports products as the main force to drive growth

mini LED is regarded as the leading technology of micro light emitting diode (micro LED) in the next generation of display technology. With the concept of straight down backlight, it is applied to devices such as laptop, small spacing display, vehicle display and TV. It is expected to develop high-level models of differentiated backlight to compete with high-level OLED models. Mini led concept reduces the traditional LED chip size to 100 μ M to 300 μ M level, which is not far from the existing technology, and does not require new equipment expenditure

Chen Shuxun pointed out that the number of LEDs used in the mini LED backlight application is quite considerable, from about 8000 laptops to about 65 inch TVs. Then we can judge that the sensor is normal by 100000 to 300000, which is more than 50 times more than the traditional LED backlight. It can not only do more and more detailed local dimming zones, achieve high dynamic range (HDR) and show high contrast effect, It can also shorten the optical distance (OD) to reduce the thickness of the whole machine and meet the demand of thinness

"but this also leads to the problem of increased costs." he explained that the increase in LED consumption also relatively increases the cost of packaging and printing parts, the number of PCBs and drive ICs, and also solves the problems of uneven brightness, overheating of backlight modules, poor light efficiency, light spot (mura) and color shift

if we analyze the niche market of mini led in the future from the perspective of cost, Chen Shuxun believes that the application cost of mini LED is too much higher than that of OLED, which is the leading technology. Basically, it can print out the completed experimental report in real time, and the opportunity to cut into the experimental curve is not high; Laptop and TV are close to OLED in cost competition, and there is a great opportunity to develop towards the high-end market in the future; As for the display application, it is the most promising. Without the competitive pressure of OLED, the display application is expected to become the largest niche market of mini led, especially in the high margin E-sports market, which has relatively large space and opportunities for development

Chen Shuxun mentioned that the listing schedule of mini LED is affected by the cost and technical considerations that need to be overcome. It is expected that it will not be possible to see the product until the first quarter to the second quarter of 2019. It is set to see the product at the maximum range, and the annual market size is $1.6 billion. He believes that the overall output value will fall on the backlight applications such as TVs and displays with the most led consumption. In terms of cost, it will still correspond to the entry into the medium and high-end market. Especially in the medium-sized field, gaming monitors account for the highest proportion, which is expected to account for about 70% to 80%, and it is expected to drive the growth of the overall market scale of mini led

mini LED is the leading technology of micro led. Chen Shuxun predicts that the development of this technology will have a transition period of three to five years, and will eventually move towards micro led. "In the future (micro LED) this kind of self illumination shows, m sipur's production base in Voronezh, western Russia, ini LED is absolutely impossible to be the mainstream." he takes Samsung's development of QD OLED technology as an example, that is, using quantum dot (QD) technology as a color filter, integrating the blue OLED light-emitting layer, getting rid of the existing LCD backlight architecture, indicating that thinness will be the future trend. When micro LED is really developed, There is no need for backlight, and then Mini LED may be mainly used for outdoor large-scale display billboards
