China's LED display industry is developing rapidly. The scope of application is expanding.

- Jan 18, 2019-

The technical foundation and level of China's LED display industry are quite advanced, and the main products and key technologies and the international industry can maintain a leading position. The technology and performance of LED devices continue to improve, and the development of electronic technology is changing with each passing day, which brings a good foundation for the technical deepening and improvement of LED display products. At the same time, LED display has been widely used in various fields of social life. The development of semiconductor lighting industry has brought a good opportunity to the LED display industry. Therefore, the LED display market has an optimistic development prospect.

The LED industry chain mainly includes raw materials, equipment, upstream chip manufacturing, midstream LED packaging and downstream LED applications. The downstream LED applications are mainly divided into LED lighting, LED display and LED backlight applications. LED applications are an important part of the entire industry chain that can bring higher added value.

The largest market for LED downstream applications is the lighting sector, followed by backlighting applications and displays. The scale of display applications still maintains a relatively stable and rapid growth trend, especially with the maturity of small-pitch LED display technology, LED display applications will gradually move from outdoor large-size display applications to indoors, and the application fields will be significantly broadened, and the future is expected. In the next few years, it will maintain a very high growth rate, which will make the proportion of LED display in the entire downstream application industry chain gradually increase.


  According to the "China LED industry market prospects and investment strategic planning analysis report" data show that in 2017, the national LED display application industry market sales scale has new growth compared with 2016, the annual market total is expected to reach more than 30 billion yuan, the growth rate At around 30%.

 Under the background of new technologies such as small-pitch LEDs and the downstream culture media sports and other industries, it is expected that the LED display industry will maintain a stable growth of 50%-60% in the future.

 At present, the large-screen splicing market such as DLP is mainly used in military command, power, traffic monitoring, studios, etc. With the development of smart cities, it will further enter the security and commercial display markets, so the industry will continue to grow rapidly in the future. From 2015 to now, the compound growth rate of China's large-screen splicing market has reached more than 35%, and it is expected to maintain a growth rate of around 30% in the next three years.


 With the further decline in the price of small-pitch LED displays, the application field will further expand. In the future, it will fully enter commercial applications such as media, advertising, and cinema. From the revenue classification of Caiyida in recent years, it can be seen from the industrial and commercial enterprises. Both the scale of revenue and the growth rate are high, indicating that as the cost of products declines, customers with higher price sensitivity are beginning to accept small-pitch LED products. In the future, the market space in the commercial field is extremely broad.

 At present, LED small-pitch TV applications have not entered the civilian market, but with the further decline in cost and mass production of smaller pixel pitch products, it is expected to enter the civilian TV field. For ordinary home TVs below 80 inches, due to the advantages of LCD display and cost, it is unlikely that small pitch LEDs will replace LCDs in this field in a short time. However, after 86 inches or more, especially after 110 inches, due to the manufacturing process of the LCD, the cost will increase geometrically. Therefore, it is basically difficult to see an LCD TV of 110 inches or more.


 It is expected that the small-pitch LED industry will maintain a super high growth rate in the next 2-3 years, with a growth rate of over 60%. It is expected that the market size will approach 10 billion by 2018.

 In the development of China's LED display industry in recent years, with the merger and acquisition of enterprises, the scale effect is constantly presented, the industry pattern has been basically clear, and the LED display is in the fields of traditional outdoor advertising, stage sports venues, etc. Applications have also developed more mature, and products are gradually becoming homogenized.

 Therefore, LED display companies are beginning to seek new profit growth points, and continue to innovate by upgrading the level of research and development to enter new applications and open up new blue ocean markets. With the gradual improvement of the display process technology, the cost has gradually declined, and the products have been iteratively upgraded, especially the introduction of small-pitch products, LED display has gradually entered many new market applications.
