Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s UV Tech Insights for Nov. 10, 2022. In this month’s edition, we’ve incorporated some recent financial reporting from Signify that appears to reflect the reduction in announcements we’ve received regarding ultraviolet disinfection from companies within the lighting space. Now that is not to say that technologies are not being offered or that there is no activity to be found on this front — just that less of it appears to be coming from well-known players in the lighting market. And maybe that is a trend to watch with the UV disinfection application. Are businesses that have emerged in niche disinfection markets “staying in their lanes,” such as within healthcare facilities, public buildings, and transportation market sectors? Are we awaiting a new wave of commercialization in UV- and visible-light–based sanitization technologies? We shall observe and report.
You’ll also find below some excellent features and UV-related news that gained traction this year — not all of it even published within 2022 but remaining well read. We’ve also included a few gems from our Endeavor Business Media colleagues on UV in horticulture, building systems, and aircraft health and safety guidance.
