Global LED and OLED Lighting Market Analysis and Manufacturing Report 2020: LED Based SSL, is on Course to Become the Dominant Technology Across All Lighting Applications

16 October 2020

Dublin, Oct. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "LED and OLED Lighting: Market Analysis and Manufacturing Trends" report from The Information Network has been added to's offering.

The High Brightness Light Emitting Diode (HB LED) market is exploding as unit shipments continue their upward growth. LEDs are creating a niche market for conventional suppliers of semiconductor processing tools. Markets for HB LEDs, backlight LEDs, and OLEDs are forecast.

Solid-state lighting (SSL), particularly light-emitting diode (LED) based SSL, is on course to become the dominant technology across all lighting applications. The luminous efficacy of SSL has surpassed previous lighting technologies and still has significant room to improve, and the price has decreased to the point where it is no longer a barrier to adoption for consumers. The LED technology platform also offers the opportunity to advance beyond legacy form factors, which embody the limitations of the previous lighting technologies; to move past the legacy functionality of providing basic illumination; and to enable energy savings beyond improved source efficiency to encompass more precise delivery of more suitable light at the appropriate time.

Today, LEDs are an integral part of many consumer products like light engines for general lighting, smartphones, or automobiles, often enabling new functionalities (e.g., higher efficiency and endurance, more compact form factor, and higher design flexibility), if compared with their traditional counterparts.

The term LED displays or TVs has come to signify LCD displays that utilize the newer LED-based backlighting technology in place of cold cathode fluorescent light (CCFL) based bulbs that have been common for several decades. The majority of the manufacturing infrastructure is similar to LCDs as the backlight module is the main difference. The advantages of LED based lighting technology is brighter light output, lower power consumption, long lasting (40,000 to 60,000 hours on average vs CCFL at 20,000 to 40,000 hours), less fading or degradation of output over time, and ability to support thinner form factors.

Gallium nitride (GaN) light-emitting-diode (LED) technology has been the revolution in modern lighting. In the last decade, a huge global market of efficient, long-lasting, and ubiquitous white light sources has developed around the inception of the Nobel-prize-winning blue GaN LEDs. Today, GaN optoelectronics is developing beyond solid-state lighting, leading to new and innovative devices, e.g., for microdisplays, being the core technology for future augmented reality and visualization, as well as point light sources for optical excitation in communications, imaging, and sensing.

This explosion of applications is driven by two main directions: the ability to produce very small GaN LEDs (micro-LEDs and nano-LEDs) with high efficiency and across large areas, in combination with the possibility to merge optoelectronic-grade GaN micro-LEDs with silicon microelectronics in a hybrid approach. GaN LED technology is now even spreading into the realm of display technology, which has been occupied by organic LEDs and liquid crystal displays for decades. In this review, the technological transition toward GaN micro- and nanodevices beyond lighting is discussed including an up-to-date overview on the state of the art.

Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) represent an area of SSL technology that can create diffuse light sources with direct emitters that are thin profile and bendable. This technology can produce new form factors and lighting design flexibility not available with today's LEDs or traditional lighting technology.
