During the last two decades, electronic technology has made impressive progress. Today’s electronic displays make use of a wide variety of active display drivers (a driver is basically a semiconductor integrated circuit). The LCD driver market is one of the fastest growing markets due to increasing demand for LCD displays, low power consumption electronics goods as well as touch-enabled displays in consumer electronics & devices. Moreover, the growing global demand for electronics devices will fuel the growth of the LCD Driver market.
An LCD display driver is a peripheral device which interfaces to a liquid crystal display (LCD). It generates drive signals and may be cascaded for larger LCD applications. LCD display drivers control the complex AC voltage requirements for liquid crystal displays and work with an LCD controller to keep refreshing pixel information to the drive circuitry. Several display drivers are specifically designed to easily interface with a variety of microprocessors or microcontrollers and a wide range of LCD display types.
LCD Driver market: Drivers and Challenges
The major growth drivers for the LCD Driver market include rise in demand for energy-efficient electronic products, growing demand for high power density and growth in various industrial applications. Furthermore, increasing demand for energy efficient lighting & high-quality picture images coupled with several energy-saving government initiatives taken to ban conventional halogen bulbs are expected to propel the growth of the global LCD driver market during the forecast period. In addition to this, increase in adoption of consumer electronics devices is projected to drive the growth of LCD driver market globally.
Major challenges in the LCD driver market are higher cost and thickness of device display in comparison to other modules. The LCD driver market is expected to show a shrink and fluctuation in its growth rate because of the higher number of tracks required in case of LCD drivers in comparison to other types of module. In addition, worldwide financial uncertainty and macroeconomic situations, such as fluctuations in currency exchange rates and economic difficulties, are some of the major factors hindering the growth of the LCD driver Market.
