Apple Supplier Luxshare enters Apple mini-LED supply chain to Boost new MacBook Pro in 2021, MacBook Air in 2022 and more
Tianfeng International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s latest report today states that Luxshare will be the biggest winner among the four new Apple mini LED suppliers with 45-50% of the orders. Supplier SMT will receive 15-25%.
The existing suppliers of main components of mini LED include Fucai (LED), Pengding/Zhending (PCB), Taiwan Watch Division (Surface-Mount Technology - SMT), LGD (display) and Sharp (display).
Kuo believes that the average selling price of mini LED SMT is expected to be significantly reduced due to Luxshare’s entry, and it is predicted that the cost of mini LED SMT can be reduced by more than 30-50% within one to two years, which is beneficial to Apple’s promotion of mini LED devices.
Apple’s new Mini LED Suppliers will start mass production from the second half of this year to next year.
