Micro-LED Display Market Trends

  • Growing demand for wearable displays is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for micro-LED displays is being driven by the growing demand for wearable displays for smartwatches and head-mounted displays (HMDs). Many smart wearable manufacturers want to extend their product range by adding small devices with screens. Smart wearable manufacturers utilize small display panels in devices, including wristbands, watches, and smart glasses. Micro-LED technology is anticipated to be commercialized first for smart wearables, including NTE devices and smartwatches, and as the technology grows, it may increase the usage of smartphones and other larger application segments such as PC monitors, laptops, and TVs. Thus, the increasing market for smart wearables is anticipated to construct lucrative opportunities for display panel manufacturers such as LG, AU Optronics, Samsung, and Innolux. These firms are anticipated to consider investing in such applications by collaborating with micro-LED start-ups.

Major drivers influencing the growth of the microLED display market include the rising demand for cutting-edge audio and visual goods, brilliant and power-efficient display panels, and the growing preference of electronic behemoths like Sony and Apple for microLED displays. Manufacturers can outperform conventional production procedures thanks to microLED display technology. Conventional organic light emitting diode (OLED) and liquid crystal display (LCD) technologies, for instance, call for sizable glass substrates into which all other components are sequentially placed; the larger the substrate used, the more efficient the process is. This resulted in companies investing enormously in highly efficient production lines. In addition, owing to the elevated sensitivity of OLED materials and the high costs associated with the supply chain, companies opt for locations that enable them to operate globally.

Micro-LED is a cutting-edge display technology that guarantees exceptional brightness and contrast while consuming less electricity. To provide the finest visual experience, these elements are especially important for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) apps. The rise in apps encourages a lot of businesses to work together to create and incorporate cutting-edge technology into their products and improve user experience. For instance, in October 2021, Chinese electronics company TCL unveiled its brand-new Thunderbird Smart Glasses Pioneer Edition, equipped with a full-color transparent micro-LED display driving the micro-led display market revenue.

Micro-LED Display Market Segment Insights:

Micro-LED Display Panel Size Insights

The Micro-LED Display Market segmentation, based on type, includes micro-display, small & medium-sized panels, and large panels. The small & medium-sized panels segment dominated the market, accounting for 35% of market revenue (0.09 Billion).
