Micro light-emitting diode (micro-LED) display, mainly based on inorganic GaN-based LED, is an emerging technique with high contrast, low power consumption, long lifetime and fast response time compared to liquid crystal display (LCD) and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display. Therefore, many research institutes and companies have conducted in-depth research on micro-LED in the full-colour display, gradually realizing the commercialization of micro-LED. And the current research results of micro-LED indicate that it can be widely used in display, visible light communication (VLC), biomedicine and other fields. Although micro-LED has broad commercial prospects, it still faces great challenges, such as the effect of size reduction on performance, the realization of high-density integration on a single wafer for independent addressing of full-colour micro-LED display, the improvement of repair technique and yield et al. This paper reviews the key solutions to the technical difficulties of the full-colour micro-LED display. Specifically, this review analyzes and discusses a variety of advanced full-colour micro-LED display techniques with a focus on three aspects: growth technique, transfer printing technique and colour conversion technique. This review demonstrates the opportunities, progress and challenges of these techniques, aiming to guide the development of full-colour micro-LED display.
