Quantum Dot Displays To Dominate TV Market


QLED screens could reach 34 percent share of the LCD TV panel market by 2021

A presentation by Ross Young, founder and CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) speaking at the recent QLED and HDR10 Summit in Los Angeles suggests that quantum dot (QD) displays will increasingly dominate the TV market.

In his presentation entitled 'QD vs OLED TV Capacity And Cost Outlook', Young concluded that OLED TV panel capacity will be small and will remain small relative to LCD capacity through 2021.

DSCC research predicts that the total TV market will grow from 261 million units in 2016 to 282 million in 2021. Within this, QLED TV shipments will rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 90 percent, reaching over a 100 million units and a 34 percent market share.

Young's analysis finds that OLED TV panel shipments are only expected to rise at 49 percent CAGR up to 2021, suggesting that OLED TV capacity is only expected to account for 4 percent of TV capacity by 2021.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
