LG Display logoLG Display, based in Korea, is one of the world's largest display makers. LGD produces screens for TVs, laptops and mobile devices.

LG Display's high-end TV technology of choice is WRGB OLED, but the company announced in 2018 that it is also developing Micro-LED TV technology, and in 2020 LG Electronics launched its MAGNIT range of tiled MicroLED TVs based on LGD panels.


LG Electronics continues to improve its MAGNIT microLED TVs, and release new models. LGD itself develops new microLED technologies. In 2022 LGD demonstrated a 12" 100 PPI (pixel pitch 40 um) full-color stretchable MicroLED display. In 2023, LGD researchers together with researchers from Seoul National University developed a fluidic process to efficiently self-assemble microLEDs.

Reports suggest Samsung and LG are slowing down their microLED business plans

According to reports from Korea and Taiwan, both Samsung Display and LG Display have decided to slow down their microLED business plans. The main reasons behind this are the high production costs of microLEDs and high competition which is seen to lead to low profitability. 

Samsung Display will continue to invest in microLED R&D, but has delayed plans to expand production. LG Display has already reduced the size of its microLED R&D teams and is looking into deploying some of its microLED developers into the OLED side of its business.

Researchers from Seoul National University, together with LG, use a 20 years old fluidic process to efficiently self-assemble microLEDs

Researchers from Seoul National University, in collaboration with LG Electronics, developed a new transfer process for microLED displays, based on a fluidic process.

The new process, called Fluidic Self‑Assembly (FSA), starts with a collection of microLEDs (chiplets) dispersed in an assembly solution, and a display substrate in which the binding targets are coated with molten solder. The substrate is immersed in the fluid, and then the fluid is set in motion (is shaken), which causes the microLED chiplets to make repeated contact with a binding targets. When a microLED chiplet meets the binding target, surface tension induces an irreversible bond between the solder and a metal electrode on the chiplet.
