Recovering Demands to Spur Chinese LED Package Market Expansion by 5% YOY, said LEDinside

The scale of China’s LED package industry grew just 2% annually to US$8.8 billion in 2015, according to the 2016 Chinese LED Chip and Package Industry Report by LEDinside, a division of TrendForce. The weak performance of the Chinese LED industry last year was mainly attributed to the global economic slowdown.

LEDinside analyst Allen Yu said the market is showing some signs of rebound this year as branded lighting vendors have been restocking their inventories, thereby generating demand and boosting the capacity utilization of LED chip suppliers. Only a few chip suppliers have raised prices, but their efforts are enough to stop the general downtrend in the chip market. Consequently, package prices will also remain stable in the short term. As the industry enters its maturation phase, technological advances have lowered LED usage volumes for some applications and caused these markets to contract. LEDinside projects the scale of the Chinese LED package industry to grow 5% annually in 2016 to US$9.3 billion.… More
