Longer lifespan of MicroLED in comparison to OLED, driving the global MicroLED market
MicroLED is made of semiconductor material which is inorganic in nature, and the overall size of the component is less than 100um, due to which it is known as MicroLED. An array of MicroLEDs are being set for the purpose of forming discrete pixel elements. The MicroLED market has created considerable interest among leading brands, which includes Samsung and Apple, which have bought many MicroLED start-up companies. MicroLED has potential applications in smart Near-to-Eye wearable, automotive displays, smart watches, and signage’s. Additionally, MicroLEDs are expected to have much longer lifespan and response time in comparison to OLEDs; this generates interest for MicroLEDs. Samsung is presently well poised to develop 150-inch MicroLED TV in 2018. Advancement in technologies such as MicroLEDs and OLEDs have been able to fulfill the market demand for better viewing experience, efficiency, and improved aesthetics; these technical factors are also well poised to increase the product life expectancy even further than earlier technologies.
MicroLED Market: Scope of the Report
The global MicroLED market is broadly segmented by type and application. According to the research study, by type, the display segment held the maximum market share and is anticipated to show a CAGR of above 20% through 2026. Display segment’s revenue contribution is primarily due to significant deployment of MicroLED across applications such as smartphones, and smart watches.The display segment is anticipated to remain dominant over the forecast period. As the market is in its initial stage, in the current MicroLED market, services which includes installation, maintenance, and repair related to MicroLED are limited.
