Epistar Chairman: Golden Three Years Ahead for LED Manufacturers

The arrival of LED industry’s prosperous three years is for real this time, a recent CNA report quoted Epistar Chairman B.J. Lee saying at the company’s latest stockholder meeting.

LED market’s strong demand growth is expected to continue for two years well into 2017, with penetration rates to reach 60 percent to 70 percent, estimated Lee. Industry insiders should try and make the most out of these three years.

Lee once again projected supply and demand will reach equilibrium at the end of 2014 or even earlier. High end LED chip shipment shortages are expected to reach 30 percent by second half of 2014.

Epistar’s LED lighting revenue share has increased from 20 percent in the first half of 2014 to current 25 percent, said Lee. The company’s LED lighting revenue is targeted to reach 35 percent by second half of 2014, but international backlight demands will slightly ease in second half because of China’s rebounding TV industry.

Another highlight at the stockholder’s meeting was Everlight sold its share in Epistar, bringing Everlight shares down from 11 percent to two percent. According to Lee, Everlight decided to sell its stake in Epistar because of financing demands required for the company’s mergers and expansion plans.
