Lux : China's LED Lighting Market Ready To Double

Driven by a virtuous cycle of falling prices, policy support, and energy goals, LEDs' share of lighting in China will nearly double to 18 percent in four years, Lux Research says


China’s LED lighting market will more than double to $7.4 billion in 2017 from $3.1 billion, as ongoing urbanisation, local energy savings targets, and price cuts make the technology more appealing, according to Lux Research.

Both residential and commercial segments will drive LED lighting to a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24 percent, far outpacing the 5.6 percent CAGR for the broader lighting market. As a result, LED lighting will grow its share of the lighting market from 9.6 percent to 18 percent.

“LED lighting has changed from expensive products outside the cost-conscious sweet-spot of Chinese buyers to value-adding solutions, gaining market share and realizing sustainable growth," says Jerrold Wang, Lux Research Associate and the lead author of the report titled, “Running to the Light: Sizing China’s LED Lighting Market."

Lux Research studied the Chinese LED market and industry value chain to assess opportunities for global players and investors.

They found that Guangdong, Shanghai, Zhejiang, and Jiangsu are premium markets. In Lux’s Market Adoption Grid, these provinces emerged as the upper tier of “premium" markets for LED adoption. Guangdong offers the best overall combination, driven by the largest new and existing building floor space in 2015.

Also, the residential segment shows fastest growth. The Chinese residential LED market will grow from $23 million in 2013 to $310 million in 2017, a CAGR of 92 percent, the highest among five market segments – as average prices fall the fastest, from $6.02 per fixture in 2013 to $3.13 in 2017.

Lux also syas that consolidation is coming. China’s end-product market is highly disaggregated, with more than 5,000 players. The top 50 suppliers account for only 33 percent of the market and the top 10 take merely 18 percent. Industry consolidation is imminent over the next five years, with suppliers of poor-quality products facing elimination.



 

 



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.
