LED backlighting goes mainstream in 2011
Notebooks lead the way
According to a recent report by DisplaySearch, LED backlit panels will surpass classic CCFL/EEFL units next year. By 2013 they are expected to achieve 73 percent penetration.
It's no surprise that notebook panels will lead the charge. Researchers believe 84 percent of all notebook panels shipped in 2010 will feature LED backlighting, and the number is expected to reach 95 percent in 2011.
Adoption will be somewhat slower in the TV market. Around 20 percent of TV panels shipped this year will sport LEDs and the share is expected to increase to 72 percent only in 2015.
