【Exclusive Interview】Seoul Viosys Sees UVC LED Business Bloom in 3Q20

After years of investment on UV LED R&D, Seoul Viosys has become one of the leading UV LED companies in the world. The company covers products with full range of wavelengths and its UVA LED and UVC LED products are taking leading positions in the industry.

As COVID-19 epidemic keep sweeping the world, awareness of public health and health management has increased significantly. Many consumers and branding vendors have also begun to pay much attention to UVC LED-related products with disinfecting functions. According to “TrendForce 2020 Deep UV LED Application Market and Branding Strategies,” Seoul Viosys UV LED revenue ranked first in the world in 2019. LEDinside had the honor to invite Ridge Lin, Sales Director in Greater China of Seoul Viosys, to share the latest UVC LED development.

In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, the UV lamps are in high demand. UV mercury lamps are mainly used for sterilization and disinfection in large spaces, such as schools and hospitals. However, UVC LEDs that deliver only single wavelength of 275nm cause less safety concerns regarding the irradiation. In addition, with small and compact size, UVC LED can fully meet the market demands for small spaces and surface disinfection for daily objects like door handles, shoe cabinets, shoe soles, and more.

Seeing the demands in the market, Seoul Viosys has been committed to improve the efficiency of UVC LED in 2019 and 2020. The optical power of 275nm UVC LED has reached 20mW without changing the current output (100mA) and has been mass produced and shipped targeting the air-conditioning sterilization application market. In addition, the 50mW multi-chips UVC LED products are at the phase of stable shipment to fulfill the requirements of different customers.

Observing the UVC LED market demands in 2020, Lin indicated that Seoul Viosys will focus on three fields:

1. UVC LED manufacturers have been committed to developing home appliance brands for many years. As UVC LED technology gets mature and branding acceptance improves, UVC LED will eventually see the growth breaking period in 2020.

2. As the white light market competition is very fierce, UVC LED has created another new market of compact lighting products for lighting players.

3. Seoul Viosys has also successfully broken into manufacturers in 2020 that have never involved in the UV LED field in the past, and it is believed that there will be a major breakthrough in 3Q20.

Eventually, Seoul Viosys has demonstrated 2L/Min UV-C LED purifier in the market, and the sterilization effect can achieve 99.99%.
