LED Backlit LCDs Overtaking CCFL in All Markets

Research firm DisplaySearch issued a report today that claims by 2013, the penetration rate in 10-inch and larger TFT LCDs using LED backlighting will reach 74%. That will leave the minority of systems using the less efficient CCFL backlighting systems. In the shorter time frame, TFT LCD panels with LED backlighting will surpass CCFL backlit panels in the 10-inch range starting in 2011.

“Without a doubt, LED backlights will be the dominant light source in all applications in 2011—representing a significant business and technology evolution for the entire backlight and panel supply chain,” noted Kevin Kwak, DisplaySearch Director of LED Backlight Unit Research.

The research firm forecasts the shipment of LED-backlit screens in the LCD TV market to increase from 36.5 million in 2010 to 184.9 million by 2015. Growth in LCD TVs with screen sizes 26-inches or less are expected to grow rapidly with the cost premium in the size range more acceptable to consumers.

The highest penetration of LED backlit screens is in the notebook segment where the reduced energy consumption compared to CCFL backlighting has an impact on battery performance. With the notebook market being so popular, the penetration of LED screens for notebooks will hit 84% in 2010 and close to 95% in 2011.

DisplaySearch forecasts the shipment of LED backlit units for LCD TVs to grow from 36.5 million units (a 20% penetration rate) in 2010 to 184.9 million units (a 72% penetration rate) in 2015. “In order for LCD TVs with LED backlight units to gain market share, they must provide attractive performance and cost competitiveness simultaneously,” Kwak added. “Three main components will play a role in reducing costs: LED chips, light guide plates and dual brightness enhancement films.”
