Light Emitting Diode (LED)-backlit Liquid Crystal Display-Televisions (LCD-TVs) will gain considerable momentum in 2010 and beyond because of the increasing commitments from various parts of the TV supply chain, consumer demand and a higher focus on green technologies, according to iSuppli Corp.

iSuppli forecasts that global shipments LED-backlit LCD-TV 40-inches and larger in size will expand to 112.1 million units by 2013, rising at a whopping Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 405% from a mere 34,000 units in 2008. In 2010 alone, shipments of LED-backlit LCD TVs 40-inches in size and larger will rise by a factor of nearly eight, reaching 18.8 million units, up from 2.5 million in 2009.

By 2013, 83.2% of 40-inch and larger LCD TVs shipped will use LED backlights, up from just 0.1% in 2008 and 6% in 2009, it said.

While the benefits of LED-backlit LCD-TVs are apparent, the challenges are as well, said iSuppli. The cost of LED backlights remains too high for mass consumer adoption at this point. The TV sets that utilize LEDs now are priced far more than standard CCFL-based LCD-TVs. Other challenges include an inadequate component supply, a fragmented supply chain, short LED lifetimes and thermal issues, it said.

However, it said, LEDs have an ace in the hole: Increasingly stringent government policies are forcing television manufacturers to shift their backlighting to environmentally friendly technologies that consume less electricity, especially at the larger TV sizes where power is a major concern.
