A thin film transistor (TFT) is a distinct class of field-effect transistor (FET) produced by depositing thin-films of an active semi-conductor layer along with the dielectric layer & metallic connections over a supporting substrate. It is also a type of flat-panel LCD display screen, in which each pixel is controlled by one to four transistors. This transistor could be made using an extensive variety of semi-conductor materials where a popular material is silicon. Transistors are embedded inside the panel itself, lessening crosstalk between pixels & improving image stability. The primary application of thin film transistors is within TFT LCDs, an implementation of liquid crystal display technology.
The global thin film transistor market is primarily driven by factors such as their compact size, low price, reduced weight, and low power consumption. Though, their complex structure, and less availability of high resolutions TFTs for professional applications are some of the major hindrance for the market growth. Moreover, the use of TFTs in artificial retina, and increasing R&D for further applications are highly expected to generate profitable growth opportunities for the market in the forecast period.
