Global LED market is expected to reach $42.7 billion by 2020

After the grand success of the CFL lights, light emitting diode is the next buzzing technology in the general lighting industry. Absence of hazardous liquid mercury and power efficiency has allowed LED to successfully penetrate the market and has outdone CFL lighting in the commercial market.

It is anticipated that LED lights would command about 20 per cent share of the global lighting market by 2020. This will be equivalent to 2/3rd of the revenue for LED. However, the demand for basic LED in backlighting applications would decline as OLED broadens its horizon of applications and would eventually supersede basic LED based mobile displays.

Rising application of LED in general lighting has compelled the manufactures to concentrate on the launch of new LED lighting products and expand their production.

OSRAM opened its LED assembly plant in Wuxi, China, to expand its fully loaded LED capacities and also to strengthen its market position in the global LED market. The company has chosen the plant location in China to capture the highly potential Asian market.

The notable players in this space include and profiled in the are American Bright Optoelectronics Corps, Cree Incorporation, International Light Technologies, Ledtronics, Philips Lumileds Lighting Company, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., Seoul Semiconductor Co. Ltd., OSRAM Licht AG, Nichia, LG Innotek Co Ltd., GE Lighting Solutions and Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd. Nichia, Samsung, and Osram held nearly 35 per cent share in the global LED market revenue in 2013.
