LED chips are used in numerous industries and a large number of applications. They are used for illumination purposes, and the resultant bulbs are more power efficient as compared to conventional incandescent bulbs. LED chip based bulbs also help reduce electricity bills, thus saving costs in the long run. This is expected to contribute to market growth in an increasingly energy conscious environment. Growing investment by companies such as Cree, and research and development activities, as well as initiatives by governments in Taiwan and China to replace traditional lighting by LED lamps is expected to drive the market over the forecast period. However, high product cost in comparison to incandescent lamps and cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs) are expected to negatively impact the industry in the coming years.
Backlighting is expected to be the largest and fastest growing application of LED chips over the next few years. This can mainly be attributed to the shift to LED backlighting for television sets, since they improve the picture quality and brightness. The largest contribution to backlighting was from mobile phones, which is expected to witness sluggish growth in the near future. With increasing expected demand for LED backlight TVs, average manufacturing prices are estimated to decline in the coming years. LED chips for illumination include applications such as residential, industrial, and commercial lighting, and this segment accounted for approximately 30% of the overall market in 2012. Automotive, signs and signals, and other segments are expected to lose market share over the forecast period.
The market for blue LED chips is expected to grow faster than the global average, mainly on account of their application in backlighting and illumination among others, as well as high degree of brightness. In comparison, red LED chips are used in automotives for rear lamps as well as for traffic signals. The others segment includes yellow, ultraviolet LED, and infrared chips. Asia Pacific is expected to be the major contributor to revenue, and account for the largest market share during the forecast period, primarily due to the large number of industry participants in the region. New product development an innovation is the key growth strategy, and major manufacturers include Cree, Epistar Corporation, Hitachi Cable, Seoul Semiconductors, and Bright LED Electronics Corporation among others.
