LED lighting is another focus of LED application market. Currently, LED landscape lighting and LED lights is the market developed rapidly in the two application areas, general lighting market in the short term it is difficult to start, the cost of hindering the popularity of LED lighting the biggest problem. At this stage, LED fluorescent lighting is the cost of equipment and HID (xenon lamp) apparatus 5-10 times, resulting in a high cost due to the brightness of the light source unit price and the surrounding components. High-power white LED prices to a lot higher than traditional lighting, lighting products also need cooling board, power supply and lenses, and other peripheral components. In the LED lighting market, because of landscape lighting products less sensitive to price, the market started earlier. 2004 -2008, China Landscape LED lighting market compound annual growth rate of 42.8%. With the declining cost per lumen, and the great efforts of the government, LED lighting market continues to accelerate the pace of development, penetration of the field gradually expanded.
Specific alternatives, the future is very likely the first LED lighting alternative to halogen lamps. At present, the halogen lamp is mainly used in shops and other commercial facilities, be replaced if a better luminous efficiency LED lighting, you can significantly reduce energy consumption, can cut electricity bills, that is, operating costs, the initial cost and the sum of operating costs After 2-4 years will be cheaper than existing light sources. On the other hand, the ministry launched a nationwide "Ten City, ten thousand," semiconductor lighting application engineering, LED lights to promote their products as a key concern has also become hot markets. Currently, the Ministry has identified Mianyang, Chengdu, Chongqing, Yangzhou, Xiamen, Shijiazhuang, Baoding, Xi'an, Tianjin, Nanchang, Weifang, Zhengzhou, Wuhan, Shenzhen, Dongguan, Fuzhou, Dalian, Harbin, Ningbo, Hangzhou, Shanghai, 21 cities pilot cities for the project. In addition, local governments have also developed programs related to the development of semiconductor lighting. The high cost of LED lighting, while facing a lack of standards, be improved thermal performance, power-driven need to design a series of questions, through its own development of the market is difficult in the short term scale, the adoption of national and local government support, LED lighting market is expected to enter a new course of development.
Expected in 2009 -2013, China LED lighting market will show rapid growth momentum, from the amount of point of view, for LED street lamp market compound annual growth rate will reach 38.8%, LED landscape lighting for the average size of the market CAGR of 21.7%, higher than the market average compound growth rate, lighting markets will directly drive the rapid development of more high-power 1W LED products in the market demand.
From the business point of view, due to technical requirements of high power products for European and American manufacturers Cree, Osram, Lumileds has a strong competitive advantage, China Taiwan companies with good products are accounted for mid-market price, the domestic large-scale packaging companies such as Foshan, China Star power products in recent years has also made no small progress.
