The global LED chips market is analyzed and forecasted from 2010 to 2015.
There are various lighting sources available in the market including fluorescent lighting, tungsten photonic lighting, incandescent lighting, and LED lighting. The growth of market for LED chips-based lighting is expected to overpower the declining of incandescent lighting.
LED chips are used in a wide variety of applications; ranging from lighting (automotive lighting, street lighting, and general illumination) to backlighting for panels in consumer electronics (such as LCD TVs, laptops, and phones). The driving factor behind the demand for LED backlighting for application in LCD screens is its quality of picture due to the higher degree of brightness and power efficiency. LED backlit LCD television sets have better brightness than CCFL television sets and ultimately deliver better picture quality. The increasing demand for cost-effective and energy-efficient lighting and a number of other factors are boosting the global demand for LED chips and therefore most of the developments in the LED chip market aim at providing more efficient and advanced products that will not only give more brightness, but also consume less power.
While conventional products are still popular in the market, their market share is going down at a rapid pace as they are not cost efficient. LED chips offer high brightness and power efficiency; and also have lower carbon emissions than traditional technologies such as incandescent and halogen lighting. This aspect has made LED lighting popular with government organizations, which are now putting LED lighting in public places and government offices.
LED chips are available in various colors; namely infrared, red, green, yellow, blue, white. The blue LED chip market holds the highest share and the red LED is the second largest segment in the LED chip market.
When used for illumination purposes, LEDs are also more cost-effective than traditional lighting sources. The global LED chips market is thus witnessing an increasing demand, and companies are expanding their manufacturing capabilities to meet this demand. High brightness LED chips currently enjoy high growth as the backlighting application in TVs is shifting from traditional CCFL technology to LED technology.
The heat-sensitivity of LED chips reduces their efficiency and lifespan, especially in applications such as industrial units and manufacturing plants, where there is a high degree of ambient heat. However, ongoing R&D to improve thermal management is expected to boost the LED chip industry.
The LED chips market is estimated to grow from $3,162 million in 2009 to $8,536 million in 2014 at a CAGR of 22% from 2009 to 2014. Backlighting is expected to form the largest application in 2014 with an estimated market size of $4,015 million. This is mainly due to the growing trend of LED backlighting in LCD panels such as netbooks, televisions, and PC monitors.
