High-End Displays To Be A Third Of TV Displays In 2025


Quantum dot, miniLED, microLED and white OLED-based displays will constitute 57 percent in revenues, according to Omdia’s latest forecast tracker

High-end TV displays are expected to be 30 percent of all TV displays in 2025 in unit base, and 57 percent in revenues base according to Omdia's latest 3Q20 Display Long-Term Demand Forecast Tracker. As the graph and table (below) show, in 2020 the high-end TV display reached 7 percent of the total TV display market.

High-end TV displays include the WOLED (White OLED) TV, Quantum Dot LCD TV (QLED), QD OLED TV, QNED TV, Mini LED backlight LCD TV, FALD backlight LCD TV and Micro LED TV display.

TV display shipments are trending down on a unit base each year while the weighted average size is going up annually. The 2020 TV display shipment reach 276M, with 272M of LCD TV panel and 4.4M of OLED TV panel. The 276M is a 5 percent decline YoY from 2019.

In 2021, it is expected the TV display panel shipment to reach 274M, with 1 percent YoY decline. The decline is due to the maturity of the TV market. However, in terms of TV display technology evolution, the market is not mature yet with many new picture and form factor performance improvement technologies on the horizon.

The key driving forces of these high-end TV display are attributed to the trend towards bigger screens, cost reduction, increasing capacity and technology availability and improvements in reliability and component maturity. Consumers are also gradually paying more attention to picture performance and form factor features with the responding cost premium.

LCD panel prices are going up and down cyclically but high-end TV display ASP with the larger size and better specification will be crucial to enlarge the total market scale of the display, especially for new technologies like OLED, Mini LED backlight, QLED and QD OLED and Micro LED display.

Omdia forecasts that the total TV display revenue will grow from $33.2 billion in 2020 to $47.4 billion in 2025. High-end TV displays will be playing a critical part in driving the TV display revenues up. The high-end TV display revenues will be reaching $27.1 billion in 2025, surpassing the standard LCD TV display revenues, and taking 57 percent of the total TV display revenues.

David Hsieh, senior director, displays research at Omdia, commented: “We see the whole TV display supply chain, from the component and materials suppliers, display manufacturers, Mini/Micro LED makers, backlight assemblers TV OEM ODM and retailers are more devoting to the high-end TV. OLED TV and QLED TV have won the heart of the premium TV consumers and keep expanding. 2021 can be viewed as the first year for the Mini LED Backlight LCD TV and QD OLED TV to start. In the long term, the Micro LED TV and QNED TV will take the top premium space. All of these are pointing to the promising future of the high-end TV display, which is viewed as great prospects to enhance the display revenues, enabling the display makers' technology evolution and also nourish the high-end customer needs."

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.
