LED display screen initially became the most popular advertising carrier for advertisers in the new media era because of its vivid colors and clear images, which provided the audience with stunning visual effects and maximized the commercial value of media advertising. But with the rapid development of science and technology, the traditional media advertising and information dissemination form has not been able to meet people’s needs, and the digital and virtualized industry began to emerge. Therefore, there are huge opportunities and broader business possibilities in the future of the LED display market. This article will walk you through the future trend of LED display screens in 2022 with 10 keywords.
The development and popularity of 5G communication technology have once fueled the heat of discussion in the UHD video industry, especially since 8K display technology has extended rich applications that greatly enhance the sense of immersive experience for audiences, making 8K displays to be the main development direction in the coming years. Some national television broadcasters have also made clear regulations on the display technology of 8K screens. Not only that, in the Opening Ceremony of 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, China’s National Stadium was customized with the world’s largest LED screen that can present more than 8K resolution, bringing a stunning visual feast to the world through the perfect integration of technology and aesthetics. These have not only pointed out the direction of LED screen panels in the development of the high-definition display industry but also accelerated the transition from 4K screen to 8K screen and the pace of application of 8K screens in all kinds of high-definition display scenes.
2. Mini LED and Micro LED
With the exploration of LED pixel pitch and increasing demand for high-definition displays in recent years, LED screen manufacturers began to explore UHD display effects, which is why Mini LED and Micro LED technology has always occupied a place on the list of hot topics in the past two years. Mini LED refers to the use of LEDs smaller than 0.2 mm to produce light, and Mini LED displays are mostly used for backlight displays mounted on TVs, computers and cell phones, and other screens. For the time being, Mini LED technology has just achieved mass production and requires further development of the application.
Micro LED, being different from Mini LED display, is the evolution of OLED. That is, Micro LED is the use of smaller, brighter single red, green and blue LEDs to emit color light directly. Compared to Mini LED display, Micro LED display is still in the stage of achieving breakthroughs in mass production, and further technical upgrades and improvements are needed for application in the market. However, as the ultimate stage of LED display, Mini LED and Micro LED is the inevitable trend of industry development and will continue to receive industry attention.
3. Naked Eye 3D
Naked eye 3D displays were a hot topic in 2021 due to the incredible visual experience they bring. By integrating LED display screens with city landmark features, naked-eye 3D displays have become a new way for many cities to seek to quickly create new city business cards and promote the recovery of the cultural tourism industry. In addition, the further improvement of flexible LED screens and compatibility of more diverse display materials and content with LED screen panels, many high-end brands and business districts prefer 3D LED screens to expand their brand influence. Undoubtedly, the naked-eye 3D display will become the vane of development of the LED display industry along with the high-definition display.
4. VR/XR Virtual Filming
In the case of repeated epidemics, virtual LED display allows many performing arts, advertising, and other media industries to see the convenience of an LED screen wall in shooting unique environments and more possibilities of application. And virtual production LED wall with its seamless and self-luminous characteristics, can present a realistic and high-definition outdoor environment indoors while eliminating the need for tedious post-production of video, greatly improving the efficiency of filming. It can be foreseeable that the development of the segment of the virtual production LED wall will continue, and the prospects are good.
The metaverse and the concept of user-generated content (UGC) have continued to receive widespread attention in the last two years, resulting in accelerated growth in the productions of AR/VR devices. Vuzix, WaveOptics, Xiaomi, and TCL have released commercialized products of Micro LED AR smart glasses. And as more brands launch end-use products, LED display suppliers will also introduce the concept of metaverse in their product concepts and future product planning. There is no doubt that the future scale of the metaverse market will further expand with the development of the high-tech industry and LED display industry.
The construction of smart cities in recent years continues to promote the digital development of cities in depth. Affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, the no-touch mode makes all industries have to upgrade towards digitalization and wisdom, so digitalization and intelligent empowerment have become an inevitable trend and requirement for the transformation and upgrading of every traditional industry. In addition, with the improvement of small pitch technology, the application of narrow pixel pitch LED display in indoor scenes will get more opportunities under the empowerment and enrichment of information technology. It also further stimulates the process of urban wisdom upgrade and provides more market for LED screen panels.
7. Immersive Experience
The immersive application of LED display screens has become another important label for the application of the display industry. At present, there are increasing numbers of users creating diversified immersive application scenes through LED screen walls to refresh the application form of LED screen, including immersive theater, exhibition, shopping district, and entertainment venues. The immersive application promotes the diversification of the form of leisure places at home and abroad, bringing more fun experiences to people. Not only that, the immersive application of LED display screens is still diffusing to more fields and will bring more display possibilities for people in the future life.
8. Outdoor LED Screen
In order to better disseminate the cultural values of national subjects, UHD 4K/8K content is called for as the main channel and the main force of cultural communication. Many national governments support the establishment of ultra-high-definition 4K screens or 8K screens in cities that are in a position to do so in order to enhance the penetration of the ultra-high definition video industry. The development and implementation of this initiative will greatly promote the development of the outdoor LED display industry. Furthermore, with the deepening emphasis on small LED pixel pitch technology and the addition of HD 4K screens and 8K screens, LED display screens will remain the dominant public large-screen applications for a long time. It effectively promotes the development of the outdoor LED screen.
9. Cinema LED Screen
In the 125 years since the birth of cinema, the projection method has always held a monopoly in the cinema market. But since the world’s first cinema LED screen of Samsung onyx debuted in South Korea in 2017, LED display screens have brought a new era of projection to the film industry. It is predicted that by 2025, of the 20,000 new screens in Chinese cinemas, 2% will be cinema LED screens, and 1% of the 80,000 existing screens will be upgraded to cinema LED screens. It is indisputable that with the maturity of cinema LED screens in standards and technology, the future development of the cinema LED screen market has unlimited imagination.
10. Chip Shortage
Repeated epidemics at home and abroad led the logistics and transportation industry to the dilemma and thus broke out the problem of chip shortage in the LED display industry. Under the wave of global shortage of chips, the LED display industry has also suffered an unprecedented blow, causing the chip prices to climb and production difficulties for some LED screen manufacturers. Many leading LED screen providers began to realize the importance of the chip. In order to alleviate the current dilemma of lack of chips on the LED screen, they began to invest in the domestic chip industry. So far, the plight of LED display manufacturers will be further alleviated, and innovative breakthroughs in the LED display industry will also be facilitated.
