In the fast-moving world of visual technologies, one innovation has the potential to revolutionise the industry, and that’s MicroLED displays.

Dr Xiaoxi He, Research Director at market research company IDTechEx, explores the potential of MicroLED technology in a newly released report titled Micro-LED Displays 2024-2034: Technology, Commercialization, Opportunity, Market, and Players. The tome promises an in-depth exploration of the MicroLED display landscape.

MicroLED displays, hailed as the next generation of display technology, have certainly captured the imagination of industry players. These displays feature self-emissive inorganic LEDs in the micrometre range, functioning as subpixels. The absence of traditional packaging and substrates introduces a unique production process, with the MicroLED in Package (MIP) steadily gaining popularity for commercial products.

A wide colour gamut, high luminance, wide viewing angle, and low power consumption are just some of the better known benefits of the technology.

MicroLED also supports Fast Refresh Rates, making it ideal for gaming, sports, and content streaming.

Intriguingly, there’s also a design angle to MicroLED. The technology can be made transparent, introducing the potential for transparent display applications, and therefore futuristic design possibilities, and is bezel-free, for uninterrupted, large-format screens.

Seamless tiling enables standard MicroLED modules to form larger, customised shapes, while sensor integration adds an interactive dimension to displays for immersive experiences.

The adoption of MicroLED displays depends on their ability to replace existing technologies, such as OLED and LCD, and their potential to open up new applications, suggests the IDTechEx report, but crucially this transition will be application-dependent.

Possible routes to market include large video displays, automotive displays, augmented reality, and wearables.

Unlike OLED and LCD, the cost of MicroLED displays hinges on the number of LEDs rather than the display area. Challenges facing MicroLED vendors include achieving extremely high resolutions with small microLEDs, which remains technically demanding and costly. Understanding the current status, challenges, and market opportunities is also crucial for navigating the path forward with MicroLED displays, says Dr He.
