LEDinside: demand recovery not in sight; pressure of 2010 Q4 LED price decline expected to extend till 2011 Q1

According to the latest price survey by LEDinside, an LED research division of TrendForce, in 2010 Q4, demand from LED applications still has not recovered, including continued inventory adjustment of large-size panels and lower-than-expected demand from general lighting. As a result, pressure of LED price decline extends from 2010 Q3. Among them, price of LED for large-size panel applications fell by 5% -9%, with most substantial decline in TV backlight applications; high power LED lighting applications declined by more than 12%. Due to relatively stable demand from mobile phone applications, LED prices in this segment are fairly stable with a mere 3% seasonally adjusted decrease.

LEDinside: Dramatic Demand Decline Pulls Down the LED Price in Q310, Down Pressure Expected to Exist in Q4

LEDinside, the LED industry research institute has released its latest LED price trend report, showing that the LED price plummeted sharply in Q3 2010 due to the sudden decline in the LED application demand including inventory adjustment resulting from less-than-expected large-size panel demand and sluggish lighting application demand.  The LED price for large-size panel application fell around 11-16% while the high power LED for lighting application slumped more than 17%. As for the mobile application, LED price kept roughly flat with about 3-4% seasonal erosion thanks to the relatively stable demand.

LED Price Trends for Q3 2009

In 3Q09, the increasing demand in LED backlight for NB and TV led to a shortage in the supply of LED chips, and stabilized their prices, only the white LEDs dropped slightly. Looking forward to Q4, as the capacity of upstream chips has not ramped up in time, and demand has not been met, LEDinside projects that the prices will likely remain flat amid the supply shortage. Similarly for white LEDs, the insufficient chip capacity limits price decline, and LEDinside indicates that the LED chip shortage and price stability is expected last till 1Q10.

The strategy in coping with the rising power cost (3):How LED light bulbs can replace compact fluorescent lamp?

Although the advantage of using LED light bulbs is “Saving Energy”; its current market price and energy-saving effect still cannot compete with the compact fluorescent lamp’s. Yet, if the luminous efficiency of LED light bulbs can reach 80 lumens and its price can decrease by 40%, the cost of LED light bulb can catch up with that of the compact fluorescent lamp. In terms of the current production process of LED manufacturers, the demand of LED light bulbs will probably dramatically increase by 2010.
