The Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) is a high performance, low power liquid crystal display semiconductor that offers 20 to 50 times the electron mobility of Amorphous Silicon (a-Si). Though the mobile mobility is not as high as LTPS's, the IGZO displays can help in manufacturing small and transparent transistors ensuring higher pixel density and low energy consumption. It is due to transparency of the transistors, the image quality significantly improves with lesser illumination, again reducing the power consumption of the system.
The market so far had predominantly been dominated by a-Si and LTPS LCD, both combining to make the largest percentage of smartphone display market; but the current market trends indicate the growing demand and adoption rate of the IGZO technology. The IGZO technology is a crucial component of the high resolution technology of smartphones, tablets and monitors. The growing demand for better image quality and resolution can be listed as one of the major drivers of the IGZO market. Consumers around the world are emphasising on portable devices with longer battery life, fine touch sensitivity and higher ease of use.
The market is growing at a CAGR of 29.8% and is driven by affordable rates of technology, advancement in high resolution displays, emphasis on energy saving arrangements etc. The primary constraints of the technologies are the high investment required for continuous R&D, stiff competition with competitors like low temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS), and difficulty in implementation with OLED as is the case with the other conventional cases as well.
The market can be segmented on the basis of End User (Gaming, Media and Entertainment, Healthcare and Information Technology), Application (Monitor, Medical purposes, Smartphones and Tablets and Smart Wearable Technology) and Geographical Regions. The prime investors in the technology are Sharp Imaging and Information Company (U.S.A), LG Electronics and Samsung Electronics. Apple Inc. (U.S.A) was the most talked about adopters of the technology into their latest iPad Air, which was characterized to be light, thin and significantly smaller.
