LED Semiconductors 'see Uptake For Solid-state Lighting'

The LED semiconductor market is currently enjoying greater financial security and indicates a move to solid-state lighting, a new report has noted.

The semiconductor market is expected to further grow, with the light emitting diode (LED) industry enjoying greater financial security, it has been reported.

Over the past two months, three companies have raised almost $800 million (£481 million) for LED development and the Has LED Lighting Reached a Tipping Point? report from Strategy Analytics said this indicates accelerated adoption of the semiconductor backlighting technology.

Furthermore, the financial support highlights a move towards solid-state lighting, with the company also noting backlogs for metalorganic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD) equipment - a technique for depositing thin layers of atoms on to a semiconductor wafer.

"LED-based backlighting has reached a tipping point where we expect to see significant acceleration of the market for LED-backlit liquid crystal display TVs from 2010 on," said Steve Entwistle, vice-president of Strategy Analytics strategic technologies practice.

Using MOCVD enables a range of semiconductor photodetectors and lasers to be built as a number of layers can be built up each to a precisely controlled thickness to enable specific electrical and optical properties.ADNFCR-2855-ID-19473977-ADNFCR
