AMOLED resolution is difficult to improve LED backlight market output
The LED backlight market is expected to make a comeback.
With the increasing resolution of mobile device panels, the resolution of active matrix AMOLED will not be able to jump further due to limited technical characteristics, thus making the market output value of LED backlight components continue to rise next year.
Experts said that because AMOLED has self-luminous characteristics, its panel does not need a light source, so it is regarded as a threat to the development of the LED backlight market.
However, nowadays, consumer electronics including smart phones and tablet devices are beginning to blow the high-definition trend. AMOLED's overall shipments will start to slow down next year due to factors such as resolution and high prices; On the other hand, liquid crystal display (TFTLCD)
It is not subject to this limit and can encourage the LED backlight market to continue to shine.
Experts further pointed out that although AMOLED has the advantages of light weight and high color saturation, low resolution is its fatal cover;
Take Samsung's high-end smartphone Galaxy 3 as an example, its resolution is only 306ppi, while Apple's iPhone5 is 326ppi. There is still a gap between the two resolutions.
It is estimated that the resolution of the mobile device panel using TFTLCD display technology will continue to improve next year, from the current 326ppi to 441ppi, further expanding the gap between the resolution of the two display technologies.
In addition to the difficulty in breaking through the resolution barriers, the high price of AMOLED is also one of the main reasons why shipments cannot rise rapidly.
According to expert analysis, nearly 90% of the current AMOLED panels are Samsung (Samsung)
Monopoly, so the market price has remained high, and in addition to Samsung mobile phone brand manufacturers to reduce costs, and to meet the user's requirements for high quality, have also adopted full high quality (FullHD)
Specifications of the LCDIPS panel, coupled with energy-saving LED backlight components, to create a low-cost, high-definition smartphone.
In addition, the difficulty of applying AMOLED panels to TV products is one of the reasons for the slowdown in shipments. Qiu Yubin added that although Samsung and lejin (LG)
Both have said that they have successfully developed AMOLED panels of more than 50 inches, but in fact they have not yet succeeded in mass production, and the estimated price is even more flattering;
For many families, it is more practical to purchase a general LCD TV.
However, although LED backlight components are expected to fall into the bottleneck due to the resolution of AMOLED panels and continue to gain market favor, the LED backlight industry is bound to fall into development difficulties again after the advent of soft AMOLED panels in the future.
Experts believe that as soft AMOLED panels are expected to revolutionize the existing display application fields and erode the LCD application market that does not require high resolution, thus affecting the overall shipment of LED backlight components, therefore, the industry urgently needs to think about the next application market, or to reduce costs and improve efficiency, so as to have the opportunity to consolidate existing market opportunities.
