I am betting that this is going to happen sooner than 2020. Printed manufacturing techniques are starting to get some real traction, and LED lighting has some real possibilities for the creative design crowd. Maybe it's just my natural optimism speaking, but I see this taking off within 3 to 5 years. Larry M.

LED lighting is a good technology in view of energy saving. We indeed need new process technology to improve the yield and drive the cost down. It is also good to see any breakthrough in OLED which is even more attractive for flexible lighting.

Powering LEDs doesn't always require DC power supply drivers so the $1bn TAM is probably way to high. For example native AC powered LEDs from Lynk Labs (http://www.lynklabs.com) don't require a driver. Don't believe me??? Check them out.

The durability and energy efficient are indeed the superiority of LED lighting. Yet, it still need to catch up on price and luminous output.

Good to hear that LED's have started replacing CFL's. This will definitely give some respite from energy intensive CFL's. I hope the mass production of the LED's will bring down the prices for LED's so that everyone can afford to buy them.
