PC Notebook 100-percent According to DisplaySearch, 52-percent of notebook PCs in 2009 will use LED backlight. That number will hit 100-percent in 2012.
LCD monitor 1-percent That’s the percent of LCD monitors that sport a LED backlight in 2009. It doesn’t really get better by 2012: just 15-percent. To get passed the 50-percent mark you and I will need to wait until 2015, that’s 6 years from now, according to DisplaySearch. So CCFL backlight companies still have a huge market to serve for quite some time.
LED TV 3-percent Even with Samsung’s confusing “LED TV” marketing despite associated strong sales DisplaySearch is stating that LCD TVs that sport LED backlights will be just 3-percent in 2009. By 2012 that will grow to 32-percent. The 50-percent mark? In 2014. Quite a ways from now.
LED backlight technology is certainly growing and will completely take over the notebook PC market only by 2012. CCFL backlight technology, on the other side isn’t going to die as majority of LCD monitors and LCD TVs will remain using CCFL backlights for many years.
Is that an Happy Ending for both LED and CCFL Manufacturers?
