Micro-LEDs are a class of displays in which individual pixels are formed by an array of microscopic light emitting diodes. Each of the self-emissive micro-LED display unit functions as a driving force to emit light, where the modules become smaller and brighter. Micro-LEDs are preferred to TFT LCD and OLED displays, owing to the quality of image and the improvement in the speed of response. Moreover, these LEDs d develop brighter and more efficient lighting as compared to OLEDs and LCDs.
Hypothetically, micro-LED displays can be produced in various sizes as per the consumer demand, but due to negative relation between yield rates and display resolution demands, they are being applied only to small-scale setups. This is substantiated by the announcement of micro-LED display production in the smart watches by Apple, probably by the end of 2017 and virtual reality application based Micro-LED displays by Samsung. Moreover, these displays have added advantages of less power consumption, increased brightness, ultrahigh definition picture quality, improved color saturation, and faster response rate. These displays, which are still to begin production on a mass scale, are expected to provide 25-40x reduction in the power consumption, thus providing a viable option as the ultimate end product in the smart displays industry. Presently, display manufacturers have focused on decreasing DPPM (defective parts per million) while manufacturing products. Moreover, it is not practically possible to manufacture products, including major subprocesses of displays manufacturers such as heteroepitaxy, chip manufacturing, and mass transfer, with zero defect rate. Thus, this factor is expected to hamper the market growth.
