The Global Micro-LED Market Size is expected to reach USD 35,470 million by 2030, at a CAGR of 80.8% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030. One of the primary factors leading the micro-LED market ahead throughout the projected period is the expected proliferation of micro-LED technologies in NTE products and premium smartphones. Additionally, the increasing adoption of wearables devices including such smartwatches and head-mounted displays (HMDs) would likely present appealing opportunities for micro-LED rivals in the market.


Micro-LED, frequently referred to as mLED or LED, is a new flat-panel display technology that employs arrays of microscopic LEDs to generate individual color pixel constituents. Micro-LED displays have the advantage of producing extremely efficient and aesthetically flexible displays that can compete with today's high-end OLED displays. Furthermore, when compared to common LCD technology, micro-LED displays provide higher resolution, lower latency, and energy economy.


Micro-LED displays use far less energy than standard LCD displays while simultaneously providing high-resolution light control and a high contrast ratio. Micro-LEDs have a longer lifespan than OLEDs due to their inorganic composition, allowing devices to exhibit brighter images with less chance of screen fire. Micro-LED displays were not mass-produced as of 2021, despite the fact that Sony, Samsung, and Konka sell micro-LED display walls. It is still in the early stages and is being developed by LG, Tianma, PlayNitride, Jasper Display, Plessey Semiconductors Ltd, and Ostendo Technologies, Inc., Jade Bird Display. The increased demand for this display technology is primarily driven owing to the better eye comfort it provides over other display technologies. This is accomplished by utilizing surface light, which allows for a flat scattering of light rays.


COVID-19 Impact Micro-LED Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has influenced market demand for micro-LED devices, particularly in 2020 and 2021. Continuous lockdowns around the world have halted the manufacturing sector, disrupted logistics and supply chains, and impacted R&D activities, leading to postponed production.
