Micro LEDforum 2021 – Innovation, Vision, and Foresight

Following a subdued 2020 on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, the development of Micro and Mini LED technologies has ramped up again this year. The upcoming Micro LEDforum 2021 will reveal the latest developments in the manufacturing of Micro LED displays as well as in the application of Mini and Micro LED technologies. Significant progress has been made across the different sections of the supply chain for Micro LED displays (e.g., chip manufacturing, mass transfer, mass inspection, driver design, and backplane manufacturing). The same can also be said for the adoption of Micro and Mini LED technologies for new kinds of displays and niche lighting solutions (e.g., automotive lighting). TrendForce is honored to have invited several well-known experts in the Mini and Micro LED supply chain to share their views on the related technological advances and market trends during 2021.

Micro LED – Poised to Fulfill Its Huge Potential

LEDinside, a research unit under TrendForce, has observed that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have galvanized developers of Micro LED technologies to take on an even bolder and more forward-looking approach to R&D. At the same time, they are considering various aspects of product development such as mass production feasibility and product applicability. In light of these activities, Micro LEDforum 2021 will provide a wide-ranging exploration into the opportunities and challenges across the Micro LED supply chain. The presentations and discussions will revolve around application trends, with special focuses on large-sized displays (e.g., TVs and home theater displays), smartwatch displays, and automotive displays. Additionally, the event will delve into the prospect of Micro LED in some niche market segments such as smart automotive headlights and AR devices.

Mini LED – Starting to Take Off

The market attention on the usage of Mini LED solutions has mostly been on the latest iPads and laptop (notebook) computers that feature Mini LED backlight. Apart from these two device categories, TVs are also ready for the uptake of Mini LED solutions, and electronics brands such as Samsung, LG, TCL, Xiaomi, and Sony are all developing related products. Micro LEDforum 2021 will reveal insights on the penetration of Mini LED in different application segments (e.g., TVs, tablets, laptops, and displays). The related topics that the event will cover include product opportunities, technological challenges, and cost structure analysis. Taken together, the experts’ presentations will provide an understanding on the future prospect of Mini LED in face of the strong competitive pressure from OLED.
