Mainstream 3030 LED package products in the Chinese market have seen noticeable price declines in this November, according to the latest report from LEDinside, a division of TrendForce.
LED companies have been keeping low stocking due to the sluggish demand in the end markets in 2018 and impacts of the China-US trade war, according to LEDinside, a division of TrendForce. Looking ahead to 2019, the overall industry still has risks of oversupply, but demands for niche applications, including fine-pitch LED digital display, Mini LED backlight, UV-C LED, automotive lighting and high-efficiency lighting LED, have a positive outlook and may drive the market growth in the future.
According to the latest report by WitsView, a division of TrendForce, the global shipments of branded LCD TV sets for 2018 are forecast to total 218 million units, an increase of 3.4% compared with last year. The market has been driven by stock-up demands for the World Cup and lower prices of TV sets. Since BOE’s Gen 10.5 fab entered production, the costs of large-size panels have witnessed a significant drop, lowering the prices of TV sets as well. Particularly, more attractive retail prices for large-size models may fuel future growth in the TV market.
The prices of high-power LED package products in the Chinese market continued to drop in October 2018, according to LEDinside, a division of TrendForce.
According to the latest report - New Display Technology Cost Analysis - by WitsView, a division of TrendForce, Mini LED technology has made constant process over the past year, with a significant increase in production output (in unit per hour, UPH) and die bond accuracy. Looking ahead to 2019, WitsView expects a high possibility of the mass production of products with Mini LED backlighting. The processing costs of display units may increase by 20%~100% depending on the number of Mini LED used.
