Taiwan LED manufacturers including Everlight, Delta Electronics, Nanya Photonics Inc. are paving for the way for LED lamp sales boom in Taiwan thanks to the upcoming implementation of electricity rate hikes.
According to Everlight , it had sold out its first batch of NT$299 (US$10.3 at US$1: NT$29) LED light bulbs, numbered at 100,000 units, at 7-11 stores and is calling for urgent replenishment of another 100,000 bulbs. And the company has talked with President Chain Store Corp., which owns Taiwan’s 7-11 stores, over fresh build-up of the bulbs at the stores. It’s estimated that Everlight is likely to win the contracts to equip all of the company’s 4,800 chain stores islandwide with LED lights.
For Delta Electronics, it is urgently building up inventory of its LED bulbs at Costco’s Taiwan stores, where its bulbs are out of stock. Delta executives pointed out that the company would replenish five folds the number it sold out at Costco stores.
Everlight and Nanya Photonics Inc. will add Carrefour stores to its contracted retailers in June, while Delta plans to sign up the 23 B&Q stores in Taiwan to sell its light bulbs. The Tatung Group makes its LED lamps available at its 243 stores islandwide.
