Micro-LED market projected to grow at a CAGR of 80.1% during forecast period

The micro-LED market is estimated to grow from USD 0.60 billion in 2019 to USD 20.50 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 80.1% between 2019 and 2025. Increasing demand for brighter and more power-efficient display panels for smartwatches, mobile devices, and NTE (AR/VR) devices is a major factor for the growth of the market. The rising interest of electronic giants—Apple, Samsung, and Sony—and interest shown by input/component suppliers in the supply chain also contribute to the market growth. Rising demand for OLED displays and the lack of established supply chain for micro-LED, along with distributed patent portfolios, are the major restraints for the growth of the micro-LED market.

Micro-LED market for NTE devices to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period

Considering the current manufacturing capabilities, prototype development, and the involvement of leading players, micro-LED-based smartwatches and NTE devices may enter the commercial phase in 2019. The micro-LED market for NTE devices is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2019 and 2025. The luminosity (brightness) and resolution of micro-LED technology would be the key driving force for the adoption of the technology in NTE devices. AR devices require high resolution and brightness to match the real-world visibility. The fast response time of micro-LED displays is also suited for AR applications. Micro-LED display-based VR solutions can be implemented for diverse end uses, such as entertainment, gaming, training, and research.

APAC to dominate micro-LED market during forecast period

APAC is expected to dominate the micro-LED display market during the forecast period with the presence of leading brand product manufacturers, LED foundries, and display panel manufacturers in the region.

Micro-LED is an emerging display and lighting technology with the potential to disrupt the traditional LCD display and LED lighting markets. Micro-LED technology is being developed to offer high brightness at low power. The micro-LED market is estimated to grow from USD 0.60 Billion in 2019 to USD 20.50 Billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 80.1% between 2019 and 2025.

Increasing demand for brighter and more power-efficient display panels for smartwatches, mobile devices, and NTE (AR/VR) devices is a major factor for the growth of the market. The rising interest of electronic giants Apple, Samsung, and Sony and interest shown by input/component suppliers in the supply chain also contribute to the market growth.

The micro-LED market can be broadly divided into display and lighting segments. The micro-LED display market is segmented on the basis of applications into smartwatches; near-to-eye (NTE) devices (AR & VR HMDs); televisions; smartphones and tablets; head-up displays (HUDs); laptops and monitors; and digital signage. The market is further segmented on the basis of display panel size into microdisplays; small- and medium-sized panels; and large panels. On the basis of verticals, the market is categorized into consumer electronics; advertisement; automotive; aerospace & defense; and others. The micro-LED lighting market is segmented on the basis of applications into general lighting and automotive lighting.

As of 2018, only the digital signage application is commercialized following Sony’s launch of micro-LED-based “CLEDIS” displays with 1.26mm pixel pitch and ~50-micron size RGB pixels. Considering the current manufacturing capabilities, prototype development, and the involvement of leading players, micro-LED-based smartwatches and NTE devices may enter the commercial phase in 2019. The micro-LED market for NTE devices is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2019 and 2025. Demand for micro-LED-based smartphone display panels is expected to grow rapidly; however, limitations in mass production may restrict the actual supply volumes. With the launch of new foundries or manufacturing plants, high demand can be fulfilled over time, and the shipment volume will increase rapidly between 2023 and 2025. Smartphones and tablets are high-volume applications, and once commercialized, the corresponding market share will rise to dominate the overall micro-LED display market. Small- and medium-sized display panels are expected to dominate the micro-LED display market by 2025 in terms of share, while the market for microdisplays is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period.

APAC is expected to dominate the micro-LED display market during the forecast period with the presence of leading brand product manufacturers, LED foundries, and display panel manufacturers in the region. Samsung, LG, Sony, Sharp, Panasonic, and several others will account for major demand for micro-LED display panels by 2025.
