High-brightness LED market slowing but still growing

July 17, 2007
The latest HB-LED market review and forecast from Strategies Unlimited will be published in August.
The HB LED market continued its slow growth phase in 2006. The market grew by 6% to $4.2 billion, primarily due to the continuing decline in the mobile appliance market. Mobile appliance applications once accounted for nearly 60% of the market but this figure is now down to under 50% despite an increase in handset shipments.

Other applications have taken up some of the slack, including solid-state lighting and automotive. In fact, the market without mobile appliances grew at an impressive 22% growth rate for 2006 showing the willingness of the industry to seek out new applications.

On the production side, high-power (0.5W+) LEDs were the fastest growing product line in 2006 with a growth rate of 43%.
