COVID 19 Analysis

The sudden arrival and COVID-19 outbreak have had a detrimental impact on the OLED microdisplay industry since the initial cases were recorded in the Chinese region in November 2019. Given the temporary and permanent shutdown imposed by the global governments to curb the quick spread of the pandemic of manufacturing facilities and production departments that weakened the demand degree amongst the global market premises. Still, it is believed that device manufacturing functions of the OLED microdisplay market will be reduced in the short term as a majority of the microdisplay manufacturers are based in China. Furthermore, the demand and supply of components may face some disruption due to the COVID-19 outbreak. As a result, most of the research and development activities and new product launches related to microdisplays are expected to be postponed until 2020.

As such, the OLED microdisplay market functions of the device manufacturers require to be prepared for supply chain disruptions taking place in China. The sudden impact of supply chain disruption might be visible from the next quarter of 2020 as other countries, including the US, India, Germany, and others like the UK, are also impacted significantly by the COVID-19 outbreak. This is expected to have a potential negative impact on microdisplays and their functioning in 2020. However, the manufacturing sector will likely gradually return to normal within the next couple of months after 2020, ensuring a regular supply of devices with improvement in the situation.

Market Dynamics


The OLED microdisplay market size projects instances of good growth during the ongoing forecast period of 2018-2023. In addition, the OLED microdisplay market is witnessing the rise of factors like the increased adoption of HMD in several industries, escalated demand for OLED microdisplays, and increased global adoption of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) & HUD are driving the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Cameras are optical instruments used to capture and record images, which are stored in a digital system. EVFs can be considered camera viewfinders that project images captured by the lenses on microdisplays to help cameras aim at the targets to be photographed or viewed. These cameras are primarily used in digital still cameras and video cameras. The overall global digital camera and projector market is maturing, and hence, its growth is naturally slowing down as the OLED microdisplay market has become nearly saturated. The demand for microdisplays used in digital cameras is decreasing owing to the reduced demand and availability of such cameras. Moreover, the concept of data projectors is also witnessing a decrease in their shipments.

Technology Analysis

The availability of OLED technology enables the development of thin, efficient, and bright displays comprising thin films of organic light-emitting (OLED) materials that emit light when electricity is applied to them. Several global industry experts believe OLEDs are set to replace existing technologies in the display ecosystem.

OLED microdisplays and other components are gaining momentum due to their advanced features, including higher contrast, faster response time, and a more comprehensive operating temperature range than LCDs. They have outperformed the functions of conventional LCD and LCoS microdisplay technologies; hence, the OLED microdisplays are being widely used in EVFs and HMDs. The consumer OLED microdisplay market in the ongoing forecast period encompasses video and VR glasses and EVFs; the industrial market covers AR smart glasses for logistic applications, while the defense market targets AR helmets for pilots.
