Top LED Chip Manufacturers Observations of LED Market Trends (Part 2)

Costs. That is the only thing LED chip manufacturers think about, and who can blame them? LED chip prices are expected to drop to 50 cents for a 1,000 lumen LED lamps in 2015, said Epistar Chairman B.J. Lee at 2015 LED Executive Summit hosted by SEMI at TILS 2015 in TWTC Nangang Exhibition Hall, Taipei, Taiwan. Moreover, manufacturers might be facing the challenge of raising LED efficacy to 3,000 lm/$ within two years. Tightening profits are spurring manufacturers to develop new technology to drive down costs.

EU GECCO Project Eyes to 3D LED Assembly for Higher Light Output

The EU research project GECCO with their partners from Madrid, Bristol, Lodz, as well as Osram aim at vertically oriented LEDs that can boost the light output by a factor of 10. The European scientists expect that new three-dimensional assembly of LEDs could dramatically multiply the light output compared to today's planar devices. Currently, LEDs are being constructed in a planar way, meaning in layers and completely flat. The more light is being required, the more wafer area has to be produced—an expensive and laborious approach. The idea of the...
