According to the latest report from LEDinside, a division of the market research firm TrendForce, 1Q18 Micro LED Next-Generation Display Technology Market Report- 2018 Micro LED and Mini LED Industry Trend, the Micro LED market value in 2025 is expected to reach USD 2.891 billion.

According to the latest report from LEDinside, a division of the market research firm TrendForce, 1Q18 Micro LED Next-Generation Display Technology Market Report- 2018 Micro LED and Mini LED Industry Trend, the Micro LED market value in 2025 is expected to reach USD 2.891 billion.


Due to Micro LED’s good performance, it can be applied in the fields such as wearable watch device, cellphone, automotive display, AR/VR, digital display and TV. However, owing to tough technique and high cost, it is more suitable to be applied in high-level TV, digital display and automotive display; in terms of Micro LED market scale, large-size display will become the mainstream application. The Micro LED market value in large-size display in 2025 is expected to reach USD 1.98 billion, which takes up 68% of the entire application.

There are six directions for the current obstacles of Micro LED, including epitaxial wafer/chip, transfer, full color, drive IC, backplane and inspection / repair technology.

Currently, for Micro LED production, GaN LED Wafers have been grown on sapphire substrates. However, some LED manufacturers are focusing on GaN on Si technology, hoping to increase wavelength uniformity and thickness uniformity and to largely lower the inspection cost from back-end chip process.

Current pick up technology can be implemented through physical and chemical methods. The physical methods include electrostatic adsorption, phase change transfer, fluidic assembly, electromagnetic adsorption and vacuum adsorption. The chemical methods include van der waals force, laser ablation and other methods.

There are three major types of full color technology, including the applications of RGB chip mixed light, RGB epitaxial wafer and color conversion material.

In terms of driving schemes, there are active matrix and passive matrix. Different driving scheme will result in different color performance and product application.

For backplane materials, because LTPS has high electron mobility, the leakage current is high. Thus, in terms of future Micro LED’s low-current operation, IGZO backplane will be preferentially adopted due to high electron mobility and low leakage current.

Currently, the types of inspection can be divided into PL and EL inspection. The size of Micro LED is too small to conduct the EL test with probe. Therefore, a Japanese equipment manufacturer is developing its technologies to simulate the test results with its PL test and image processing system.

Compared with traditional LCD and OLED TV, the cost of Micro LED TV is still hard to compete in the short term. Except above 65-inch TV fields, there are chances for Micro LED TV to enter the market.

Compared with other industries, semiconductor industry has advantage in Micro LED’s related technology, equipment, cleanroom, capital and end-customer relationship. However, because the market value of Micro LED is much lower than semiconductor industry, for semiconductor industry, whether Micro LED is worth developing, benefit evaluation from each manufacturer is needed.
