Report Description

 Summary:

Mini-LEDs and micro-LEDs are two types of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with sizes in the micron range. These ultra-small components are allowing to create displays and lighting products with outstanding properties in terms of brightness, color gamut, resolution and durability, among others. These characteristics are also generating increasing interest for the fabrication of a new generation of display panels and lighting products for use in a range of existing and emerging applications.

BCC Research has identified four main sectors in which ultra-small LEDs find current and potential use: optoelectronics, healthcare, automotive and others.

This study provides an updated review of ultra-small LED technologies, including materials, fabrication processes, manufacturing issues, and applications. It also offers a detailed market analysis for ultra-small LED products by segment (i.e., category, product type, application, region), describing technical aspects and trends that will affect future growth of this market.

As shown in the Summary Table, the global market for mini/micro-LED products increased from REDACTED in 2019 to REDACTED in 2020, and is estimated to reach REDACTED in 2021, corresponding to a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of REDACTED during the two-year period.

Optoelectronics currently account for the largest share of the market, at an estimated REDACTED of the total in 2021, corresponding to REDACTED. Within this segment, ultra-small LEDs are being used primarily for the fabrication of microdisplays (i.e., displays less than 3 inches in diameter) and very large displays (i.e., greater than 75 inches in diameter).

By comparison, ultra-small LED products for the automotive sector represent a share of REDACTED of the total, corresponding to estimated 2021 revenues of REDACTED. This segment has been expanding at a REDACTED CAGR since 2019, mainly driven by the introduction of ultra-small LED in car lighting fixtures, as well as dashboard and central control displays.

Healthcare and other applications (e.g., consumer eyewear and helmets for defense and security) are estimated to account for a combined share of REDACTED of the total in 2021."
