The consumption of LEDs in LCD-TV Backlighting Units, Vehicles, Street Lights, Test, Medical and Science applications, Solid-State Lighting (SSL) general lighting, as well as other applications are discussed in this ElectroniCast market research study report service, is increasing. “ElectroniCast is projecting that the LED-based LCD-TV marketplace in parts of Europe, the United States and Japan will become saturated faster, as well as embracing the OLED-based TVs and monitors, sooner than other regions. We are forecasting particularly that China will hang onto the LED-based LCD solution for an expanded length of time, especially as long as the OLED solution is provided at a price premium versus the LED-based LCD solution,” Montgomery added.
