Taiwan lamp maker China Electric Mfg. Corp., has intended to sell more than 200,000 LED lamps in Japan through its shareholder Mitsubishi Electric Co., Ltd., and distributors in 2012, nearly triple that sold in the world’s No.3 economy in 2011.
The general manager, Z.W. Chang has pointed out that the LED lamps the company will promote in Japan include downlights as well as 9W and 12W light bulbs, estimating the sales will help drive up the company’s LED revenue by 200% from last year’s.
According to Chang, LED lamps are becoming popular energy-saving products among Japanese consumers with the government’s diligent promotion of energy-conservation products since the March 11 earthquake.
The company shipped around 50,000 LED lamps to Japan through distributors and retailers in 2011.
