Mobile Phone LED Market To Decline Between 2015 And 2021
Not all bad news according to Alice Tao, senior analyst, IHS Markit, as phone flash LED market will begin to return in 2017
According to the latest information from IHS Markit Mobile Phones in Packaged LED Market Brief, the market for LEDs used in mobile phones "“ including backlighting behind the display, keypad illumination, and camera flash -- will decline at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.6 percent from 2015 to 2021. Increased penetration of organic LED (OLED) is a primary reason for this decline.
The OLED panel penetration rate for mobile phone displays is forecast to grow from 13 percent in 2015 to 34 percent in 2021, due to strong demand from Chinese brands. LED revenue for backlighting in mobile phones was estimated at $686 million in 2015, but will decline to $455 million in 2021.
Nearly all mobile phones shipped in 2015 had at least one camera -- and 86 percent also had a secondary camera -- although not every camera was equipped with a flash. IHS expects the mobile phone flash LED market to decline slightly in 2016, due to fewer mobile phone shipments. However, the market will begin to grow again from 2017 to 2020, thanks to increased penetration of colour LEDs and secondary camera flash applications. LEDs used in mobile phone keypads will also decline, but they comprise only a very small part of the market.
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
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.
