ElectroniCast provides forecast for Asia LED Lighting

Aug. 24, 2011
Date Announced: 24 Aug 2011 Upper Lake, CA (USA) – ElectroniCast Consultants, a leading market & technology forecast consultancy, today announced their 5-year market forecast of the Asia Pacific consumption of light emitting diode (LED) lamps in solid-state lighting (SSL) General Lighting applications. According to the ElectroniCast study – In 2011, the street lighting category dominates the product market share, in terms of consumption value, in the Asia Pacific region. However, ElectroniCast points out that there is a big difference in product-category market share from the value data ($ million) versus the volume (quantity/number of units) data, especially for the Streetlight category. This is because there is such a huge difference in the relative (higher) pricing for a streetlight lamp compared to the lower pricing for the other lamp types. For example, in terms of volume (quantity/number of lamps), the street lighting category dominates the product market share with less than 10 percent of the total volume of LED-based lamps use in the Asia Pacific region in 2011. It is important to note that some streetlight fixtures, which are installed on the top of the poles, may actually have more than one (1) lamp. For example, the streetlight fixture may actually accommodate 2 or more lamps. ElectroniCast expects that the average street lamp will increase in brightness output over the forecast period (2010-2015); therefore, fewer lamps per light pole (or fixture) will be required over time. The data shown by ElectroniCast counts the lamps (not the fixture/s).The new report from ElectroniCast also segments the market forecast data by three major End-User categories: Government, Commercial/Industrial, and Residential/Non-Specific. Most of the streetlights fall-in the Government category; the Commercial/ Industrial group is especially strong in the PAR lamps, MR lamps and (near-term) General Service lamps (LED linear/tube lamps are also counted); the Residential category is forecast with relative strong use in the General Service/Decorative style of lamp types.Volume/Quantity Market Forecast The consumption value is determined by multiplying the number of units (volume) by the average selling price. The average selling prices are based on the price of the LED lamps at the initial factory level. ElectroniCast estimates that 35.8 million LED lamps (consumer-level bulbs) were installed/used in Asia Pacific last year in 2010. The number of LED lamps is forecast to be nearly 1.66 billion (units) in the year 2015, representing an average annual growth rate of 115.3 percent (2010-2015).Note: Market forecast data in this study report by ElectroniCast refers to consumption (use) for a particular calendar year; therefore, this data is not cumulative data.
