Chinese Companies Continue to Increase Investment in Mini and Micro LED Research and Production

Micro LED and Mini LED technology bring new hopes for industry players in the field since they have been suffered from price competition with oversupply. Taiwanese LED companies were the first to begin Micro LED and Mini LED development and they have entered mass production phase for Mini LED in the past two years. In 2020, as Apple is rumored to release Mini LED-based products, it is expected that demands for Mini LED display technology will surge.

Seeing the trend, LED and display companies in China are also pushing their technology development aiming to catch the coming business opportunities. Many of them are pouring large capital to expand production capacity and research center targeting advanced LED technology including Mini and Micro LED.
