Published: 29 Jun 2018

Micro-LEDs (or Micro LEDs) are a next-gen self-emissive low power display technology with superior image quality compared to conventional display technologies such as organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays and liquid crystalline displays (LCDs). The key R&D focus area is mass transfer technology which enables commercialization and mass production of micro-LEDs. GaN-on-Si is emerging as a potential technology enabling mass-manufacturing of micro-LEDs. Micro-LED technology enables integration of sensor components layered on the display panel, resulting in more compact and efficient interactive displays. High growth opportunities are observed for display and semiconductor manufacturers. Micro-LEDs can be also used in advanced sensing applications and next-gen communication techniques such as visible light communication (VLC). In the short-term, consumer electronics application such as AR headsets and smartwatches are high impact sectors. In the longer term, micro-LEDs will be integrated into healthcare wearables and used for medical applications such as optogenetics.
