Global LED Market is Expected to Reach $42.7 Billion by 2020 - Allied Market Research
September 17, 2014
Portland, OR, September 17, 2014 --(PR.com)-- According to a new market research report by Allied Market Research titled, "Global Light Emitting Diode (LED) Market (Technology, Application and Geography), 2013 - 2020" the global LED (chips and components) market is forecast to reach $42.7 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 13.5% from 2014 to 2020. Asia Pacific commands dominance of the LED technology market. The region houses approximately 3/4th of the global electronics manufacturing industries. North America, due to its high-tech forensic and medical applications leads the market for UV LEDs. After the grand success of the CFL lights, light emitting diode is the next buzzing technology in the general lighting industry. Absence of hazardous liquid mercury and power efficiency has allowed LED to successfully penetrate the market and has outdone CFL lighting in the commercial market. It is anticipated that LED lights would command about 20% share of the global lighting market by 2020. This will be equivalent to 2/3rd of the revenue for LED. However, the demand for basic LED in backlighting applications would decline as OLED broadens its horizon of applications and would eventually supersede basic LED based mobile displays.

LG 55EC9300
September 16, 2014
Last year, I reviewed the LG 55EA9800, a 55-inch curved OLEDHDTV. To my utter shock, it managed to produce perfectly dark black, a holy grail of HDTV testing and the only way a screen can have the "infinite contrast ratio" (technically inaccurate, but we'll talk about that later) some manufacturers have claimed in the past. I've been waiting for another OLED HDTV to test to see if this was some mysterious fluke or if the technology really can consistently perform that way. LG has now released the 55EC9300, a redesigned, WebOS-based follow-up model. Well, OLED is now two for two, and the 55EC9300 offers one of the best pictures I've ever tested in the lab. That image quality will cost you $6,999.99, though, so while OLED is now confirmed to be the future of HDTVs, it still isn't feasible for most consumers today.
