LED lighting, with its obvious advantages, as highlighted by the new energy industries. In Taiwan, Huang Chao-crystal electric Vice Chairman pointed out that the LED will lead to more future new applications, and the use of new packaging technologies and chip to lower production costs and improve luminous efficiency.
Cree Asia-Pacific vice president Li Shiyi said LED lighting industry in the future growth rate depends on the market for LED luminous efficiency of the acceptance, product quality and innovation may be another, but also with policy factors, such as the International Solid State Lighting LED on the brightness, and security norms.
LED general lighting market is customer demand has been low the past the requirements of the brightness and gradually turned to quality, environmental protection, and comfort requirements, the estimated future green LED will be more demand, prices will drop to 1.3 times the traditional lamp about standards.
Everlight vice president of global business StephanGreiner said that at present the world’s leading LED lighting market concentrated in the Asia Pacific region, accounting for 33.7% of the global market, North America, second place, accounting for 30.1%, followed by 22.3% in Western Europe, Eastern Europe, accounting for 5.1% , Africa and the Middle East about 4.5%, estimated global market size of about 85 billion U.S. dollars, in the applications of other areas, mainly family-oriented, accounting for about 39%, followed by office and medical-European 18%, the third largest outdoor market lighting, about 12%.
StephanGreiner that outdoor LED lighting market has considerable room for growth, especially in fast-growing Chinese market, now accounting for outdoor LED lighting market in the world 38%, exceeding the 33.3% in North America.
According to market research firm iSuppli’s latest report and StrategicsUnlimited, 2011, total global LED lighting market will reach 90 billion U.S. dollars, 2011, the global high-brightness LED driver IC market is expected to more than 1.9 billion U.S. dollars, in 2010 LED lighting market in China is expected to reach 30 billion yuan, nearly 16 billion yuan in 2006 doubled. LED is the current recession in which electronic components industry as a whole bunch of valuable light of hope, LED is expected to achieve about 3% this year, sales growth, while the overall global semiconductor market this year, down 9.4%.
French market research company Yole predicts that by 2012, the overall LED market will reach 10.3 billion U.S. dollars. Among them, high brightness and high brightness LED total will reach 4.45 billion U.S. dollars, almost 783 million U.S. dollars in 2007 forecast to 5.5 times.
According to ABIResearch’s research branch NextGenResearch, global LED lighting market in 2013, annual output value is expected to break through 33 billion U.S. dollars. LED lighting market in the period 2009-2013, the average compound annual growth rate (CAGR) will be close to 22%.
The largest LED lighting market is the LED backlight (laptop, PC, LCD-TV and mobile phone), LED general lighting market has entered a fast development track, especially in the lights, car tail lights, automotive interior and small Biaoshi lights, construction external decorative lighting materials, government agencies (as well as jewelry stores and airports, and other special public place) the internal general lighting, outdoor and indoor LED displays, such as household lighting, household lamp, LED fluorescent lamp LED market has started.
For example, Chongqing, Wuhan and Suzhou, and other small cities and the high-tech industrial parks have been built all use LED lights in the park road, in some cities (such as Suzhou) is the direct deployment of solar powered LED lights. U.S. LosAngles will all use LED lights, Minneapolis intercontinental highway will also use LED lights.
Osram Asia Pacific Regional Director Zhongjie Cong said, OLED is an important development of LED lighting direction, however, OLED performance increase will take some time, estimated by the high-end market, OLED will gradually go mass market. Veeco Instruments MichaelLamarra product manager, said a growing number of LED backlight to replace CCFL, lighting applications are growing, estimated to LED packaging costs in the next six years, down 85%, LED plant needs to reduce operating costs and increase productivity while out. LED’s strengths and its competitiveness significantly to our confidence in its future.
