Can Smart Medical Led Display Become Another Incremental Market For The LED Display Industry?

- May 11, 2020-

Abstract: The pneumonia epidemic of new coronavirus infection is still continuing to ferment, and is about to usher in a peak period. With the urgent needs of indoor control and remote office, small spacing has performed well in the fields of indoor control and corporate office. As a niche segment of the display market, medical display has not been valued by the industry in the past period of time. This violent epidemic has also been seen by many display manufacturers. The importance of display in the medical field and Possibly, in the future, with the demand for smart medical treatment and the support of 5G technology, what role will LED display play in smart medical treatment? Can medical display become a "dark horse" and another growth point of LED display industry?


   The pneumonia epidemic of new coronavirus infections continues to ferment, and is about to usher in a peak period. With the urgent need for indoor control and remote office, small spacing has performed well in indoor control, corporate office and other fields. As a niche segment of the display market, it has not been valued by the industry in the past period of time. This violent epidemic has also been seen by many display manufacturers. The importance and possibility of the display in the medical field In the future, with the demand of smart medical treatment and the support of 5G technology, what role will LED display play in smart medical treatment? Can medical display become a "dark horse" and another growth point of LED display industry?


   1. The considerable profit and huge demand of medical display


   In recent years, the number of elderly people over the age of 60 in China has been increasing. China ’s elderly population over the age of 60 has reached 250 million, with an increase of more than 80 million elderly people every year. The demand for treatment continues to rise, while people's living standards gradually improve, and more attention is paid to personal health conditions, and the number of regular medical examinations increases. The medical market is experiencing rapid growth. According to relevant statistics, global medical display shipments in 2016 were 40.89 million, an increase of 5.4% compared to 2015. It is estimated that 42.97 million pieces will be shipped in 2017 and 50.38 million pieces by 2020, with a compound annual growth rate of 5.3%.


   With the vigorous development of global display technology and applications, the growth of ordinary LED display screens has gradually slowed down due to the openness and fierce competition in its end market. The medical display market began to slowly open up new business opportunities due to its higher gross profit level and stable market growth space. Panel manufacturers and equipment terminal companies in Taiwan, South Korea and the mainland began to enter the medical high-end display market and continued to develop High-resolution, high-brightness, high-contrast, and other medical display panels allow display technology applications to continue to break through in the medical field, and the medical display market is growing rapidly. With the gradual penetration of LED display screens in the medical field, the considerable profits of medical displays and China's huge medical market demand will attract major manufacturers to compete for the medical display market.


   Second, LED display screen adds unlimited possibilities for medical display


   The scope of medical display is actually broader, including medical displays, public medical display screens, medical consultation screens, remote diagnosis and treatment, medical LED 3D screens, emergency rescue visualization, etc. Since the medical display industry is a highly technology-intensive industry, the technical threshold is very high. Medical display is different from LED large screen display products. At present, the applications related to LED large screen display are mainly concentrated in the fields of public medical display screen, remote diagnosis and treatment, medical LED 3D screen, emergency rescue visualization and so on.


   On the one hand, in the hospital lobby, the hospital needs to provide patients with a lot of medical information, and this information is flexible in real time, which requires a controllable display terminal platform. The hospital is the place where the personal group gathers. For the patients, going to the hospital for medical treatment needs to be able to see the medical-related information in the first time. Among various display terminals, the LED display has unique advantages. Its high definition, high brightness, and controllability meet the people's psychological needs. This also opens a door for the LED display to enter the medical display market. On the other hand, in the face of some medical problems that cannot be solved, the hospital can use the LED display screen as a display platform to join more industry experts to conduct telemedicine communication consultations. In addition, in the face of similar to the new crown epidemic situation Under special circumstances, the emergency rescue visualization has played a role in the joint hospital and external resources, and the LED display will become an important port.


   It is worth mentioning that in the field of medical display, whether it is used for public medical display screens, remote diagnosis and treatment or emergency rescue visualization, it is inseparable from ultra-high-definition picture quality, display hardware and software supporting equipment and fast transmission speed, which is more favored Small-pitch and even micro-pitch LED display screens are completed. Therefore, small-pitch LED display screens and Mini LED / Micro LED have more room to play in the medical display field, and high expectations are placed. In the future, with the continuous progress of LED display related technologies and the support of artificial intelligence and other technologies, the LED display will be integrated with a series of advanced technologies such as cloud computing. The LED display will also participate in more simulated surgery, and the simulated data will also be Real surgery provides more references and references.


   In summary, it is not difficult to see that the medical display market is large and there are not many LED display companies involved in medical treatment. There is still a lot of room for LED display in the medical display market. However, the medical technology of LED display has gold content High, it is not easy to do well. The fight against new coronavirus infections is an important practical opportunity for the Chinese medical industry. It is a training exercise that will provide valuable research samples and experience accumulation for the future of 5G and ultra-high-definition display-enabled medical industries. For the screen company, it is also a touchstone. It is tested whether the screen company is in trouble or sees new business opportunities. For the display company, this is a very good opportunity, and the medical display field is vast. The buffering opportunities in the blue ocean of the market and fierce competition, in front of the huge cake, seize the opportunity, everyone may become a beneficiary, and may take their east wind and take off.
