Packaged LEDs In SSL General Lighting To Hit 4.6 Billion Units In 2012

The global consumption value of component-level LEDs in SSL general lighting applications will increase at 37% per year from 2011-2016. Between 2016-2021, the annual average growth rate will be even higher, at 51%

Only 10% of the LEDs used in General Lighting were attributed to Interior lamps in 2011. However, by 2021 the relative market share of LEDs in Interior lighting is forecast to reach 39%.

This is according to ElectroniCast Consultants' report, "LEDs Used in General Lighting : Global Market Forecast and Analysis (2011-2021)." The consultant firm also says the worldwide volume of packaged LEDs in solid-state lighting (SSL) general lighting will reach nearly 4.6 billion units in 2012.

The global consumption value of component-level (packaged) LEDs in SSL general lighting applications will increase at 37 percent per year (2011-2016). What's more, there should be faster overall growth in the second-half of the forecast period (2016-2021), with an overall annual average growth rate of 51 percent.

LEDs used in Solid State Lighting (SSL) General Lighting Global Market Forecast (Value Basis, $Million)

The use of packaged LEDs in residential, commercial and government exterior general lighting lamps (street, parking-lot, roadway-tunnels, bridges, landscaping, pool/fountain, buildings, architectural and other general lighting) applications, in 2011, represented nearly 90 percent share of worldwide consumption.

However, ElectroniCast predicts that in the year 2021, the relative market share of component-level LED use in exterior lamps is forecast to decrease significantly to 61 percent. Having said that, a substantial increase in value is anticipated.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
