The Future Direction Of LED Lighting Industry?

- Oct 22, 2018-

Recently, LED industry experts released several questions about the LED competition in the second half of the year, which clarified the future direction of the LED industry.


1. Where is the main battleground of the competition?


The development of LED industry is a gradual process, and it is impossible to have an outbreak at some time.

At present, there are two changes in China's LED lighting market: one is the transition from outdoor lighting to indoor lighting, and the other is the transition from traditional lighting to LED lighting.

For the Chinese market, LED lighting products are still not available in ordinary households, mainly in the commercial sector.


In addition, we should focus on specific areas, such as automotive lighting, agricultural greenhouse lighting, medical lighting.


In recent years, from central to local, the development of LED heat.

Heat has its pros and cons. Having so many people paying attention to the LED lighting industry is not a bad thing but a good thing.

However, as an employee in the LED industry, his/her mind should be calm, and the problem should be considered rationally, so as to reduce blindness and increase scientificity and rationality.

The development of LED industry is a gradual process, and it is impossible to have an outbreak at some time.


With the progress of LED technology, its market scale is constantly expanding and its application field is constantly expanding. At present, it has been expanded into auto, agriculture, medical treatment and other subdivided industries.

At present, there are two changes in the development characteristics of China's LED lighting market: one is the transition from outdoor lighting to indoor lighting; the other is the transition from traditional lighting to LED lighting.


For the development of LED lighting, the current growth rate of LED lighting market is not up to people's expectations, which means people have high expectations for the LED industry, both in the global market and the Chinese market.

The global lighting market is currently only about $120 billion, and China's 2010 market was only about 300 billion yuan, well below expectations.

In 2011, both domestic and foreign markets, as well as the industrial chain, middle and lower reaches did not achieve the expected growth.


For the Chinese market, LED lighting products cannot be applied in ordinary households at present, but mainly in commercial fields, such as industry, hotels, shopping malls, etc.

For the shopping mall, it is mainly used in the public part, because the shopping mall has high requirements on lighting, involving a series of factors such as color temperature and color rendering.


2. What categories will be the main battleground?


In the application field of LED lighting, it is more difficult to popularize LED outdoor lighting, such as LED street lamps, because it is of great power and the outdoor working environment is relatively harsh, which is actually not suitable for large-scale promotion at present.

The power of indoor products is small, the environment is not as bad as outdoor, and the temperature change is not big. Therefore, the initial application of LED lighting should focus on indoor lighting.


At present, there are many kinds of LED indoor lighting products. The main products are bulb lamp, reflection lamp, tube lamp, daylight lamp, flat lamp, etc.

The Japanese market is dominated by bubble lamp, while the European and American markets are dominated by reflective lamp.

In addition, LED has a strong sense of direction when emitting light, so the downlight is also one of the focuses of current application.

The above three types of LED lights are all worth encouraging and are suitable for the current domestic market and application environment.


At present, the development of fluorescent LED lamp is not very encouraged, because there are still problems in safety.

If want to use flat lamp, whole lamps and lanterns should change, cost can compare tall, nevertheless flat lamp is likely one of application direction in the future.


3. What are the effects of industrial chain competition?


At present, the LED more cruel competition, to this, I think the LED enterprises should abandon previous traditional lighting age alone, entertaining competition point of view, and should use the whole industry chain competition model to think about the choice of enterprise and positioning, so that enterprises can reduce the risk of the business, not be mercilessly eliminated in the ebb tide.

There are two important points to note.


First, the whole industrial chain is the packaging and downstream application from the upstream chip to the middle stream, as well as the supply chain of drive, heat dissipation, optics, etc., to compete on cost jointly around the market share.

The reason is that it is difficult for a single enterprise to control cost changes in the system.
