WPG Americas Explores the Next-Generation of Ultraviolet Sterilization with LG Innotek UV LEDs

Feb. 18, 2019

The use of sunlight for sanitizing and disinfecting has a long and well-proven history that dates to ancient Greece and Egypt, and more than a century’s worth of research has enhanced our knowledge of the germ-killing properties of sunlight, specifically ultraviolet (UV) rays. This has led to the development of artificial UV sources that are more precise, safer and more effective than natural solar light.

UV LEDs have emerged as UV sources that save energy, have a smaller footprint, and offer a longer lifetime of use. With the rising concerns around the hazards of mercury and the plummeting cost of LED technology, it is no wonder why the global UV LED market to estimated to grow 24% CAGR from 2018-2023, with some market estimates reaching $4B globally.

This white paper showcases the advantages of UV LED systems, discusses major applications, and provides an overview of LED modules by LG Innotek.
