2011 LED lighting market and technology 

Green lighting applications boom has come, LED lighting has become an irreversible trend. 2012, Japan will be fully disable incandescent. Taiwan's relevant departments also announced that as of the end of 2012 a total ban on the use of high energy consumption of incandescent light bulbs. The European Union as early as 2009 began to promote compact fluorescent lamps and LED lighting, in order to make the incandescent lamp out of the EU market in 2012. USA will start from 2012, lock up most of the incandescent light bulb, began phasing out the 40W, 60W, 75W and 100W incandescent bulb. From a global point of view, 2012 will be the traditional lighting out of the market, new lighting technology to the full penetration of the key year. Development and Reform Commission is expected, China will in the future to 10 years of time to ban incandescent lamp, now also have to vigorously promote the stage, such as the Guangdong provincial government issued the "Guangdong Province LED industry development plan", will be in "1025" period promotion 30 million indoor LED lights, and in the community construction, according to the Charles proportion of 30% - 50% of the subsidies, to guide residents to purchase LED lamp.

In order to achieve both goals in 2012, the industry chain from chip manufacturers, components supporting manufacturers, lamp manufacturers to distribution channels are actively introduced products - this phenomenon will be very evident in 2011. It is reported that in 2011 the global LED lighting output value will reach 10%, no doubt will give LED lighting related industries to provide multi-level business opportunities. 

LED fluorescent lamp of the advantages of the market point



LED fluorescent lamp with its unique advantages more and more into people's lives. What are the advantages of this lamp? Today, we'll take a look.

1, LED fluorescent lamp does not use mercury, and there is no lead, the traditional fluorescent lamp contains a large amount of mercury vapor, once such a broken mercury vapor will be volatile into the atmosphere, thus polluting the environment, and LED fluorescent lamps can be a good environment, is one of the green light.
2, LED fluorescent lamp is a cold light source, will not be like the traditional lamps and lanterns to emit a lot of heat. It basically can convert the electric energy into light energy, will not cause energy waste, very economical.

3, LED fluorescent lamp is a very quiet energy-saving lamps, will not be like the traditional fluorescent lamp as a noise, very suitable for the need for quiet environment, such as the library, office and the like. Also can be very good to protect the eyes, start up very fast, will not flicker, it is good for our health.

4, because the LED fluorescent lamp is a green lamp, it will not produce ultraviolet, infrared and other radiation, no mercury and other harmful substances, less heat, a good way to avoid mosquito around the lamp source, so to create a relatively clean environment.

Finally, the use of LED fluorescent lamp is very long, its power consumption is less than 1/3 of the traditional fluorescent lamp, but the brightness is consistent with the traditional fluorescent lamp. Generally speaking, the normal use of the life of thirty thousand hours or more, long-term use without replacement, virtually reduced the cost of labor, it is suitable for some inconvenience to replace the lamp. Of course, the color of LED fluorescent lamp is very rich, can make all kinds of light, so as to meet the needs of different occasions.



Traditional light accelerated by replacement process





Traditional light accelerated by replacement process

Global lighting market divided into general lighting, automotive lighting and display three categories, the general lighting, including office lighting, home lighting,rail transportation,lighting, etc., the market share of up to 80% .

Last year, the global LED lighting market reached $29 billion 900 million, the market penetration rate of 27%. International research firm Technavio data show that LED lighting technology to replace the traditional lighting technology is growing year by year, is expected to 2019, the global LED lighting market  size is expected to reach around $64 billion 900 million.

In addition, the report noted that in June of this year, the global replacement of LED incandescent 40W bulbs retail price of $9.5, down 0.2%; replace LED incandescent 60W bulbs retail price of $12.9, down 0.1%. With the decline in the price of light bulbs and market demand to pick up, LED lighting to replace the speed will be further enhanced.

According to the national development and reform Commission announce d in 2011, China eliminated incandescent roadmap, from October 1, 2016 onwards, to prohibit the sale and import of 15 watts and above the general lighting with incandescent lamps. With the traditional incandescent light is about to gradually withdraw from the stage of history, known as the twenty- first Century light of the LED lighting will also enter the industry maturity.

From the point of view of the LED industry chain, the main can be divided into upstream raw materials, chips; middle reaches LED package; downstream LED application. Among them, the LED upstream chip and epitaxial chip market core technology is monopolized by foreign giants.

Compared with the chip industry, the LED packaging industry in the middle reaches of our country is the most competitive, and the packaging variety i s more than the whole. At present, China's LED package has formed a certain scale of industry, and has become an important production base of LE D packaging in the middle and lower end of the world. At the same time, with the continuous improvement of the technology and the market share of high-end packaging market, the future of LED packaging companies will continue to enhance the competitiveness.

Last year, China's LED lighting penetration rate reached about 30%, slightly higher than the global level, there is still some room for development in t he future. LED inside report shows that last year China's LED package market size of $8 billion 800 million, an increase of 2%. And this year, the demand for the replenishment of the inventory increased, is expected in 2016 China's LED package market size will reach $9 billion 300 million, an increase of 5% is expected to exceed. With the upgrading of LED technology and market demand continues to expand, LED industry will usher in a period of rapid development.
