TrendForce Announces 10 Tech Industry Trends For 2022
A substantial number of technical bottlenecks in Micro LED development will still persist in 2022. While Micro LED manufacturing costs are expected to remain sky-high due to these bottlenecks, companies have not shown decreased willingness to participate in all segments of the Micro LED supply chain. On the contrary, these companies are actively expanding their respective production lines. Regarding the development of self-emitting Micro LED display products, TVs represent one of the major directions of mainstream Micro LED development, primarily because TVs, compared to IT products, have a relatively low technological barrier of entry.
Driving The New Technology On The Block
MicroLED displays are the new technology on the block. And with a new technology, all of the previous givens are being re-examined, including whether the display will be driven with a TFT backplane or with some sort of distributed silicon solution. The aim of this short article is to talk about my overall thoughts on the TFT driving part of the equation. When we are talking about MicroLED displays we are typically talking about displays that have inorganic emitters smaller than 50 μm x 50 μm, though in reality we need to be discussing emitters smaller than 10 μm x 10 μm for them to be used cost effectively in mainstream displays such as TVs and smaller than this for smartphones.

Annual revenue of Micro LED chips for TV is expected to reach USD 3.4 billion in 2025 at a 250% CAGR across the 2021-2025 period, according to TrendForce’s latest investigations. This growth can mostly attributed to the early planning by display manufacturers to adopt Micro LED technology for large-sized displays; although the prohibitive cost of this technology is unlikely to be overcome in the short run, TrendForce still forecasts the aforementioned revenue in light of several factors.
Buying A MicroLED TV In 2021
Many believe that MicroLED technology will emerge as the next-generation display technology, and one of the first markets for such displays is the TV market. Several companies already offer microLED TVs - which you can already buy today. Assuming you have the money and a large enough room, that is. As is often the case with new technologies, especially in the display industry, the first few years are marked with extremely high prices and limited selection. MicroLED TVs are no exception - as of 2021, they target the very high-end premium market, with very large TVs and prices starting at around $100,000.
MicroLEDs Show Progress On All Fronts: Have They Reached Escape Velocity?
“The display industry is currently favorable to microLED: China won the LCD war, the industry is turning its focus to technologies that deliver differentiation and high margins.” asserts Eric Virey, Ph.D., Principal Analyst, Technology & Market, Displays at Yole Développement (Yole). He adds: “Helped by a COVID-driven demand boost, it has swung back to profit and is generating cash to fund new technologies. While the LCD business model needs high-volume commodity products to absorb huge fab costs and make money on premium products, microLED could see CapEx-light operations focused on serving premium markets”.

It can reach a resolution of up to 120 PPI (pixels per inch), which makes it usable for laptop screens as well. The technology opens up a world of possibilities and can have numerous applications.
Integrated Image Capture: Potentially Key Advantage For MicroLED Displays
A potentially key advantage for microLED displays is the ability to effectively integrate far-field image sensing within the display because of the large “open” pixel area compared to other display technologies. The basic feasibility and advantages of integrating far-field image capture within a microLED display was reported on by IdeaFarm LLC at the recent Displayweek 2021 conference (the major worldwide display technology conference).
Mini-LED To Micro-LED Displays: The Industry Game-Changer Is Coming
When discussing Mini-LED and Micro-LED, a very common feature to distinguish the two is the LED size. Both Mini-LED and Micro-LED are based on inorganic LEDs. As the names indicate, Mini-LEDs are considered as LEDs in the millimeter range while Micro-LEDs are in the micrometer range. However, in reality, the distinction is not so strict, and the definition may vary from person to person. But it is commonly accepted that micro-LEDs are under 100 µm size, and even under 50 µm, while mini-LEDs are much larger.
Nitride-Based MicroLED Emits Pure Red Light
A microLED developed at KAUST is able to efficiently emit pure red light and could help in the quest to develop full-color displays based on a single semiconductor. MicroLEDs are a favored technology for next-generation displays, given their (small) size and energy efficiency. However, each LED is only able to emit light over a narrow range of colors. Devices can be created that combine many different LEDs that each emit a different color. Full-color displays can be created by combining red, green, and blue (RGB) microLEDs.

Patterned Surface Energy In Elastomeric Molds As A Generalized Approach To Polymer Particle Fabrication
We present a generic fabrication scheme to produce polymer microparticles with engineerable, complex shapes. The polymer particles are made from polyethylene glycol based hydrogels using a poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) molding technique. A simple surface treatment is used to pattern the surface energy of the PDMS molds, engendering the recessed wells in the molds with a higher surface energy than that of the surface. The contrast in surface energy causes hydrogel precursor to wet only the inside of the molds, creating isolated particles after curing with UV light.
Frequently used patterning techniques include nanolithography, nanoimprint, and micro/nanoprinting. Nanolithography uses lights, charged ions, or electron beams to transfer a geometric pattern from a premade photomask to a photoresist layer, which is coated on a thin film material or the bulk of substrate. The technique then uses a series of posttreatments to chemically engrave the transferred pattern into, or allow the deposition of new material in the transferred pattern upon the target material.
Thermomechanical Properties Of Elastomeric Stamps For Micro-Transfer Printing Applications
Micro-transfer printing (MTP) enables mass-transfer of wafer-level chips having lateral dimensions ranging from 3 x 7 um to 650 x 650 um to a nonnative substrate. This is accomplished with an elastomeric stamp containing micrometer scale posts that have been precisely defined using photolithography. MTP is highly parallel and is capable of transferring tens of thousands of devices in a single MTP operation. Transfer yields and placement accuracy, however, are dependent on the performance of the micrometer structured elastomer stamp.

MicroLED Explained: The Best TV Technology You Might Never Own
The basic concept behind MicroLED is that screens are built using LEDs so small (usually under 50 micrometers) that they represent individual pixels in the image. That's compared with the usual LED TV situation where far bigger LEDs are used in a backlight to light many hundreds or thousands of pixels at once. You don’t have to be Einstein to realise that making a screen where each pixel is its own light source gives you a self-emissive type of display, opening the door to peerless levels of local contrast, colour and general light control. Which should add up to gorgeously natural, detailed, and refined images.

Micro-LED Market Future Innovation Strategies 2025
Micro-LED aka as mLED is a leap over widely used LCD technology. This is with respect to its greater contrast, faster response time, and less energy consumption. The mLED display consists of an array of microscopic LEDs that form the individual pixel elements. Invented in 2000 by a group of researchers from the Texas Tech University, micro-LED is currently in a nascent stage and does not account for a mass production of displays.
