Affordable MicroLED TVs A Decade Away

Analyst Bob O’Brien, assessing his predictions for the display industry for 2021, admits he greatly miscalculated MicroLED TV shipments for the year, writing,

“We were wrong in predicting that the lowest priced MicroLED models would be offered at less than $100,000 in 2021, and even with a very low unit forecast, we overestimated TV shipments by more than an order of magnitude. According to DSCC’s latest Advanced TV Shipment Report, we now expect MicroLED TV shipments of only 30 units in 2021, at an average price of $120,000.

In discussions on this technology, I have told people that they will need to wait until the decade of the 2030s to buy a MicroLED TV. Unless I suddenly become friends with a billionaire, that assessment seems right on track.”
