RGB Multichip Remain Market Share Leader: The use of White HB-LEDs is forecasted to multiply by a factor of 6-times (6x), increasing at an average annual rate of 43.5 percent (2008-2013). “The use of RGB multiple-chip HB-LEDs will remain strong; however, RGB multiple-chip HB-LEDs is actually forecasted with a flat growth rate over the forecast period,” said Stephen Montgomery, president of ElectroniCast Consultants - APAC and the director of the LED project group. “White LEDs are taking market share from the RGB multichip segment and we see WLEDs almost taking the relative market leadership by 2013,” Montgomery said. HB-LED signal market segment: The worldwide consumption value of HB-LEDs used in signals, most notably referring to traffic signals, pedestrian signal/controls, is forecasted with a dramatic average annual growth rate of 46.7 percent (2008-2013). “The HB-LED signal market segment includes both retrofitting application and new fixture deployments. Additionally, incentives based on “Going-Green” or “Green-Tech” initiatives are increasing the use of HB-LEDs in the signal segment. Other dynamics include safety of pedestrian and vehicle traffic, since the LEDs are a proven and reliable technology. LEDs are a good choice in this sector, because as in all applications, the low-energy consumption models drive the LED markets, Montgomery said.
