Robert SteeleOVERVIEW:

The high-brightness LED market has been in a slow-growth phase since 2004 due to the dominant position of the mobile appliance market, which has becom saturated. However, the overall market showed an uptick in growth in 2007, as other applications, especially illumination, continued to perform well, and emerging applications began to show promise for a resumption of higher growth in the future.

This presentation will cover these and other market trends, including a review of the developments in each of the major application areas. It will also provide a market forecast through 2012.
