LEDs: The 2009 Market Review

LEDs: The 2009 Market Review shows strong recovery for both LEDs and OLEDs, and a banner year for HB-LEDs in 2010.

EPIC, The European Photonics Industry Consortium (www.epic-assoc.com) announced the release of LEDs: The 2009 Market Review. The report, which is distributed exclusively to EPIC members, tracks the response of the lighting and display industries to one of the most difficult economic crises in recent year. HB-LED and OLED unit production figures as well as revenues have been summarized for major players around the world for the 2-year period of 2008 and 2009. The HB-LED sector showed a strong recovery during Q-3 and Q-4 of 2009, led by backlighting of flat-panel displays. HB-LEDs are underperforming in the general lighting segment due to the presence of lower–cost, energy-efficient lighting solutions involving halogen and fluorescent technologies.

Performance of bellwether companies is an important indicator of the commercial development of solid-state lighting. In its analysis, EPIC shows that the production of HB- LEDs should reach record levels in 2010 and again in 2011.


Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
