LED : UV LED Market

Press Release   •   Oct 29, 2012 13:31 IST

Report On  LED Market
 A comprehensive survey on UV LED and related AlN substrates and epiwafers
 Curing application fuels the UV LED market with an increasing number of chip suppliers in Asia and the emergence of Chinese players…
 UV LEDs should represent ~28% of the total UV lamp market (M$) by 2016
Thanks to its compactness, lower cost of ownership and environmental friendly composition, UV LEDs continue replacing traditional UV lamps in incumbent applications, but will also create new applications, especially portable ones.
 Hence, UV LED business is expected to grow from $32.5M in 2011 to more than $150M in 2016: within this period, UV LED market (M$) will grow by a factor x5 whereas the traditional UV lamps market will only grow by a factor x1.5
 In 2011, LEDs keep on being sold mostly in the UVA/B spectrum (especially in upper wavelengths, between 365 to 400 nm). More than 90% of the UV LED market (outside of R&D) was still covered by UV curing, counterfeit detection and medical & instrumentation applications requiring UVA/B sources. Concerning UVC LEDs, they were still mainly sold for R&D and scientific instrumentation purpose, but 2012 should see the commercialization of the first UV LED based purification system.
 UVA (400-315nm) business is currently the main UV LED market and will remain so for at least the next 5 years:
 •~90 % of the market (M$) in 2010
 •~85 % of the market (M$) in 2016 LED Market
 The report details market metrics of traditional UV lamps and UV LEDs market within the period 2011-2016, presenting: the split by application for each technology (volume & market size), the penetration rate of UV LEDs…
 UV LEDs are totally changing the value & supply chains
 The booming UV LED market has attracted several new players from different backgrounds over the past years: traditional mercury lamp supplier, traditional UV curing systems suppliers, pure UV LED curing system suppliers, visible LED suppliers, substrate suppliers… Each player addressing different strategy to capture the maximum of value created by this disruptive technology
 At the device level, Asian companies, especially Japanese and Taiwanese ones, have taken the lead on the UV LED market but recently, some Chinese companies have also entered the playground: this should increase competition, reduce prices and enable mass applications at middle/long term.
 Beyond that, as for visible LEDs few years ago, the value chain is consolidating with the arrival of pure players at the packaging and system level mainly, allowing:
 To increase performance of UV LEDs with specific package developments.
 To easier technological transition with traditional UV system manufacturers.
 The report shows the UV LED industry: the main players & associated strategies/ business models, the industrial value & supply chains in 2011 for UVA/B and UVC, the revenues and market shares of key players…
 UVA LEDs still dominate thanks to UV curing business boom
 Key applications for UVA are UV curing, counterfeit detection and photocatalyst air purifier. Among those, the most dynamic and important market is clearly the UV curing business where UV LEDs definitely compete with traditional mercury lamps and offer significant advantages in terms of cost of ownership, system miniaturization (…):
 2 professional associations dedicated to UV LED curing have been formed in 2012, showing the robustness and the credibility of the UV LED technology.
 Recent improvements have greatly increased the power output available at window surface of UV LEDs to 16W/cm² in 2011.
 The report details all UVA applications (with a deep analysis of UV curing), presenting: UV working principle, market structure, UV LEDs market drivers/challenges and characteristics required, Total Accessible Market (TAM) for UV LEDs…
 UVC LEDs are still in development but commercialization should be earlier than expected
 Water & Air purification are the potential next high volume applications for UVC LEDs. And in 2011, the UVC LED industry achieved a new milestone of structuration:
