MiniLED Backlight Technology, Cost and Shipment Report

Report Summary

MiniLED backlights have gathered a lot of interest for use in LCDs in the last few years. MiniLED backlights can potentially offer numerous advantages over other flat-panel display technologies, most notably in high brightness, high contrast ratio, lower power consumption than WOLED TV, and higher efficiency. The superior performance makes miniLED backlights attractive for use in a variety of applications, ranging from super large TVs to IT applications. Automotive and industrial applications are also advantageously addressed by miniLED backlight technologies due to its higher brightness and higher contrast ratio.
