LEDinside:US$16.4 Billion Market Scale in Specialty Commercial Lighting Market in 2020

Plant Growth Lighting: LED has a promising prospect for the plant lighting market. The expected market scale is going to increase rapidly. The market scale in 2016 is about USD 575 million and LEDinside estimates it will increase to USD 1.424 billion in 2020.   Surgical Lighting: in 2016, The global medical surgical lamps market scale gradually increased from USD 612 million in 2016 to 787 million in 2020.   Marine Lighting: According to LEDinside estimates, in 2016, global LED marine market scale is USD 233 million. Compared with general lighting, since there are strict laws and regulations for lamps in the ships, they have a higher and relatively steady price. The global shipping industry faces the pressure of overcapacity, so the number of newly increased ships is limited. In addition, the usage period of marine lighting lamps is long, so LED marine lighting increasing momentum is mainly from the replacement needs. To sum up, LED marine lighting is a kind of specialty lighting application with steady production value as well as high profits.   Harbour Lighting: According to LEDinside estimates, in 2016, the global LED harbor lighting market scale is USD 587 million. For harbor lighting puts forward strict requirements for environment, lighting must have the high protective grade and erecting height. Most harbor lighting lamps adopt high-power LED lighting lamps to replace HID lamps. Their price and specification are much higher than that of traditional lamps. But since the number of harbors is relatively fixed, LED harbor lighting increasing momentum is mainly from the replacement needs. To sum up, LED harbor lighting is a kind of specialty lighting application with steady production value as well as high profits.   Smart Lighting: The global smart lighting market scale in 2015 is estimated to be USD 1.716 billion, although the LED lighting lamps entered the age of low cost, the smart lighting market has not matured and scale effects has not formed, the relevant software and hardware are costly, therefore, the current smart lighting market is small, however, with the maturing of technology and products in future, the active promotion by manufacturers and the popularization of smart lighting related concepts, the market will grow continuously, expected to reach USD 13.427 billion in 2020.

LEDinside:OLED’s Impact on Display Market

Projected penetration rate for small size OLED: As Samsung started to adopt OLED in all models of its own brand and the exportation to Chinese labels, the strategies has pushed the penetration rate to 20% in 2016. Samsung has reached full production capacity while other display manufacturers are unable to satisfy the specification of high-end mobile models, OLED’s penetration rate will only rise to approximately 25% from 2017 to 2018. As Taiwanese, Japanese and Chinese manufacturers all strive to catch up and the expansion of Samsung and LG Display, it’s expected that OLED could take over one third of the smartphone display market, providing that Apple didn’t enter the OLED market.   Large size OLEDs cannot pose threat to LEDs: The main obstacle of small size OLED lies in the demand of high pixels per inch (ppi) while in large size it’s limited by yield rate and price. Though LG Display strived to lower the price of OLED TV and adopted the same strategy in selling its display panels to other manufacturers, prices of OLED TVs that are twice higher than LED ones still saw slow progress. It’s projected that OLED TVs will only account for 0.5% in the TV market and rise to 5% as of 2020.

LEDinside Projects UVC LED Market to Reach US $356M by 2020

Light-emitting diode (LED) manufacturers are now looking to develop niche application markets that can provide higher margins as the price competition in the LED lighting market has become too difficult for them. Among these niche application markets, ultraviolet (UV) LED has attracted investments from many manufacturers because of its enormous market value. The UV LED market has much higher technological barrier to entry, so prices of its products are several tens of times greater than those of the general LED products. LEDinside, a division of TrendForce, states that the global UV LED market in 2015 is estimated at US$122 million, which is around the same level as in 2014, in its 2015 Global LED Industry Supply and Demand Database Report. The absence of noticeable growth in the market value this year is mainly attributed to the rapid decline in UV-A LED prices (UV-A spectrum is between 320~400nm in wavelength).
