LED backlighting accounts for just 2% of LCD TV sales

LED backlight panel shipments reached 23 million units in Q2’09—resulting in 116% growth Q/Q, according to the most recent DisplaySearch Quarterly LED & CCFL Backlight Report.

Of the 23 million LED backlight panel units shipped, 14.3 million were notebook PC panels, 7.9 million were mini-note panels, 0.6 were TV panels, and 0.1 million were monitor panels.

LED backlight penetration was 100% in mini-note PCs, 43% in notebook PCs, but only 2% in LCD TV, and merely 0.3% in LCD monitors.

Summary: 59.6 million LCD panels were shipped in the first half of 2009 and about half a million were LED.

Fourth Quarter Sales

I thing that number will have a sharp increase in the 3rd and 4th Quarters, especially now that there is more choice available from more brands.

As the Christmas buying season approaches and retailers become more aggressive with pricing to meet their quota commitments, the differential in pricing between LED and florescent models will shrink. More consumers will make the leap to get the new cool thing.

They predict a 30% increase but 30% of 2% is still negligible.

It means that even in the second half of the year 97% of LCD panels sold won't be LED!

Also, LED costs a lot more than other LCD sets, so the price will have to come down before the numbers climb.

Price is certainly a factor. If you look at the latest Samsung 6000-8000, they are into the Kuro pricing territory without local dimming to boot. And the only difference it makes is being an inch or two thinner.

Yup, and the ones with proper local dimming such as the ones by Nuvision, Sony -- they are at the same price of Kuro.
