Nov. 24, 2010
Date Announced: 24 Nov 2010 LEDs Used in Solid-State General Lighting Global Market Forecast and Analysis (2009-2019) Upper Lake, CA (USA) -- ElectroniCast Consultants, a leading market & technology forecast consultancy, today announced their 10-year market forecast of the worldwide consumption of packaged component-level light emitting diodes (LEDs) in solid-state lighting (SSL) General Lighting applications. In 2010, the worldwide consumption value of packaged component-level LEDs, which are used in SSL General Lighting, is estimated to be $497 million (up from $349 million in 2009); ElectroniCast forecasts that the consumption value will be $9.2 billion in 2019. LEDs in exterior General Lighting lamps (street, parking-lot, roadway-tunnels, bridges, landscaping, pool/fountain, buildings, architectural and other general lighting) applications, represents nearly 93 percent share of worldwide consumption in 2010. In 2019, the relative market share of component-level light emitting diodes (LEDs) use in exterior lamps is forecast to decrease significantly to nearly 58.8 percent; however, increase in value to $5.4 billion (see Figure). Note: Market forecast data in this study report refers to consumption (use) for a particular calendar year; therefore, this data is not cumulative data. “Currently, it’s possible to find LED-based general lighting consumer-level bulbs in some retail stores, which of course is a critical sales channel. The stocking (and selling) of LED-based consumer-level bulbs will need to happen at all applicable retail outlets (ubiquitous); therefore, retailers must receive comparable (profit) margins versus other lighting solutions. Consumer cost/performance (benefit) issues versus competing (non-LED based) product must continue to be addressed, which takes time,” said Stephen Montgomery, president of International Business at ElectroniCast. “ElectroniCast market opportunity analysis (MOA) takes a very close look at the competing technologies, cost and price-points and other pertinent market/technology dynamics. Important performance characteristics of LEDs, with particular emphasis on energy efficiency and lighting quality, is vital to achieve a sustainable market share of LED-based stationary (non-vehicle) General Lighting products, providing an ubiquitous product environment,” Montgomery concluded. # # # This market forecast report is available immediately from ElectroniCast Consultants.
