Sapphire Substrates for LED Market 2019 Industry Growth, Share, Trends, Demand, Analysis and Forecast to 2025

iCrowd Newswire - Nov 12, 2019

Market Overview


Sapphire substrates for LED are used as a starting material. They are used in nitride-based LEDs. The two main advantages of sapphire as a substrate is that there is existing industry expertise in the production and use of sapphire and that there is a high availability of low-cost sapphire that enables the production of inexpensive LEDs. The sapphire substrate was used in military applications in the 1960s. The material is the preferred choice when it comes to using sapphire substrates for LEDs.

The sapphire substrates for LED is ideal for use not just in LEDs but also in non-LED applications due to its high-temperature resistance, good electrical insulation, high strength, and low dielectric loss. This substrate helps in preventing stray currents that are caused by radiation from spreading to the other circuit elements nearby. The high strength of the sapphire substrates for LEDs make it more scratch-resistant and hence suitable for covering lenses, buttons, displays for non-LED applications like smartphones. The global sapphire substrates for LED market continues to increase due to the lower yield, lattice mismatch and falling prices of sapphire wafers.
