Lighting Market Recession Continues While Suppliers Consolidate Market Shares Through Product Upgrading

The latest price report by LEDinside , a division of TrendForce , shows that mainstream high power LED package product prices continue to drop slowly while those of mid-power LED package products stabilized.

LEDinside Analyst Terri Wang points out that despite a recovering market demand for backlight LEDs after the Lunar New Year, market demand for lighting and automotive LED packages still saw no improvements. Lighting LED package prices also dropped slightly in March. High power ceramic-substrate product prices dropped by 1%~3%, while mainstream suppliers lowered COB product prices by 2%~4%.

Suppliers are actively rolling out new products under this state of recession to consolidate market shares: CREE has announced its next-generation horticultural LED series, XP-E2, which include red 660nm lights and infrared 730nm lights, pulling luminous efficiency up by 21% and 57% respectively; Lumileds has released its new 9V 2835E LED specifically optimized for retrofit lamps such as A19, PAR and B11, with a typical drive current of 100mA, improving efficiency by 5% when compared to conventional 60mA LED products under the same drive current ; Nichia has expanded its Optisolis technology into a COB series, which has its emphasis on high brightness and a narrow emission area, and suits the needs of lighting products requiring strong light intensity, such as spot lights, downlights and track lights.
