  • Mini LED Demand Will Soar In The Second Half Of 2018
    Jun 01, 2018

    According to related data, Mini LED applications will soar in the second half of 2018. LED epitaxial wafers and chip maker Epistar will also begin to sell in the third quarter or fourth quarter of 2018 for smartphone backlighting and ultra-fine pixel pitch. The monitor's Mini LED.

    Epistar also revealed that it is currently testing the application of LCD TV backlight Mini LED chips, but due to the lack of appropriate local dimming driver IC, its development is not yet mature.


    It is estimated that between 2017 and 2023, the average annual growth rate of the LED industry will reach 8%, mainly due to the growth of Mini LED and MicroLED. The output value of the global Mini LED and MicroLED modules will also reach 4 billion US dollars, of which the output value of Mini LED and MicroLED chips will reach 400 million US dollars.


    Epistar expects the Mini LED to account for 30-40% of its total capacity in 2020, and plans to start production of MicroLED by 2020.


    As Chinese manufacturers gradually increase new production capacity since the end of 2017, LED chips have a tendency of oversupply. Demand for LED backlights will bottom out in the second quarter of 2018 and then rebound in the next quarter.


    Due to the strong demand of local LED outdoor projects in China, Epistar has fully utilized the AlGaInP LED chip production capacity and plans to expand its production capacity by 25%. At present, the income ratio of AlGaInP LED has risen to 40%.


    At the same time, Epistar is testing VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) diodes for 3D sensors and may begin small-scale trial production in the fourth quarter.


    Epistar expects future business growth will come from filament lamps, lamps, outdoor and commercial, plant growth, automotive exterior and interior, infrared LED sensors, ultra-fine pixel pitch displays, and Mini LED and MicroLED applications.
