Dreier announced that in 2016 LEDvance generated a consolidated sales of EUR 1.9 billion (USD 2.1 billion). He added that not only China, the largest lighting market, is LEDvance eyeing to expand its presence, but other emerging markets in the Asian-Pacific region are also targets of the company. Considering the ongoing urban renewal program Smart Cities Mission in India, it is unequivocal that the demand from India and other countries in this region will soar in the next couple of years.

Josef Martin, Asia-Pacific Chief Executive Officer at LEDvance, contended that the business of traditional lamps will continue to slump, while that of LED lamps, most notably the intelligent lighting business is anticipated with decent growth not just within China but overall in the global market.

Lawrence Lin, Executive General Manager at MLS Co., said that with the support from the consortium in terms of finance and cost-efficient components for LED light sources, LEDvance is set to become one of the top three lighting corporations within three years in the world lighting market.
