The global display driver IC market was valued at US$6.158 billion in 2011, and by 2012 this figure is set to have declined to a market value of US$6.102 billion. A further fall is expected through to 2014 with the industry forecast to be worth US$5.478 billion.
This decline in market value can be attributed to a number of factors including an insufficient demand for large-sized LCD display and LCD-TV, the consumption of driver IC dropping due to the heightened integration of driver IC, large-sized panel manufacturers integrating functions of gate driver IC into a panel; and the manufacturing process of driver IC improvements.
Display driver ICs are the semiconductors that provide the voltage and/or current to the rows and columns of flat-panel displays, including for LCDs, plasma and Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) screens.
Key players dominating the display driver IC market include Novatek Microelectronics Corp., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Renesas Electronics Corp., Himax Technologies Inc., and Magnachip Semiconductor Corp.
For Samsung, the revenue from its driver IC business saw a decline on account of the fact that it was the first to employ GOA technology that integrates gate driver IC based on Array.
For Novatek, the Taiwan-based company became the world's largest driver IC manufacturer in 2012, while its major contributor to the revenue is from the large-sized panel driver IC business.
Renesas has become the monopolist in the high-resolution small-and medium-sized panel driver IC market as the exclusive supplier of Apple for series products such as iPhone, iPad, iPhone 5, and iPad Mini.
