During Display Week 2018 held by SID (Society for Information Display), LEDinside noticed that many manufacturers have demonstrated products applying Mini LED panels. Leading companies had released Mini LED backlight products in difference sizes, including display VR devices, mobile phones, notebooks, automotive display and TVs.

Taiwanese LED chip maker Epistar announced its Mini LED technology development and started to connect its clients for collaboration of various products including smartphone, laptop and indoor signage last year. The company has been working on Mini LED backlights application and is preparing production for clients on the third quarter 2018 and by the fourth quarter, Mini LED application could be found in the market.

Meanwhile, Epistar also progresses Mini LED-based applications on larger size displays and is trying to speed up the manufacturing of 27 inch panel. The company expects to launch the display the latest by 2019 and to break through the current obstacles in mass production to increase the production by 2020 in an investor conference.

For Micro LED, the company said its application on TVs and wearable devices will be demonstrated by the second half of 2018, however, due to the limitation of technology and high cost, Epistar forecasts that Micro LED-based products might be showcased during 2023-2025.

Currently the company runs faster with Mini LED and estimated that Mini LED would take 30-40% of the revenue by 2020.
