The CSP LED market is estimated to be USD 757.7 million in 2018 and is likely to reach USD 1,744.8 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 18.2% during 2018–2023. The low-cost potential of CSP LEDs with a low bill of materials, which is because of the manufacturing process, where several packaging steps are omitted, is a major factor driving the growth of the CSP LED market. High competition in the packaged LED market has led to the development and launch of new and innovative products with improved designs and high-end specifications. Overburden on LED foundries and restricted use of CSP LEDs in premium products so far are the restraining factors in the market.


Increased use of CSP LEDs in display backlighting and flash applications is driving the market towards high growth
The display backlighting application is expected to dominate the CSP LED market, in terms of market size, during the forecast period, as it is pulled by the demand for energy efficient and compact backlighting sources for TVs, monitors, and smartphone displays. CSP LEDs emerged as great replacement of traditional and large LED packages for display backlighting units. CSP LED-based BLUs drive product innovation and cost reduction along with small form factor and wide beam angle. Although the market for BLU is expected to saturate, CSP LED-based BLUs are expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. APAC includes world’s largest smartphone manufacturers and with better features offered by CSP LED, the adoption is expected to increase in a majority of premium smartphones for flash lighting application.


APAC to account for the highest demand for CSP LEDs during the forecast period
APAC accounts for the production of a majority of LCD displays, especially in South Korea, Taiwan, China, and Japan. With the presence of leading CSP LED manufacturers and customers (i.e. smartphone vendors, backlighting panel integrators, and display panel manufacturers), this region registered the largest shipment of CSP LEDs. The dominance of APAC is mainly due to South Korea, followed by China, Japan, and Taiwan with high demand for CSP LEDs for display backlighting, mobile flash, and other applications. The growth in APAC will also be driven by the rise of newer CSP LED applications in general lighting and automotive. The surge in demand for these applications will be because of high economic growth in the region and focus of governments on energy efficient lighting solutions.
