FARMINGTON, Conn., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Driven by general lighting applications, the packaged LED market will experience tremendous growth in the following 5 years, climbing to $17.1 billion in total market size by 2018. Power electronics represent a $20 billion devices market, split into 4 major semiconductor technologies. There are over 350 major power electronics semiconductor manufacturing sites around the world.
Having up-to-date details for these markets is absolutely vital to any business, investor, product manager, marketer, buyer, or regulator involved in any of these sectors. Best-in-class premium research from Yole Développement keeps readers abreast of the developments that shape these industries. Now, GII is pleased to offer select prepublication discounts on Yole Développement reports, due out this month.
Growth of the LED industry has been concentrated in small display applications, and has more generally been driven forward by LCD displays. LED TVs were expected to be the LED industry driver for 2011, but the reality was quite different: lower adoption of LEDs in the TV market and the entry of several new players, mostly from Asia, created a climate of overcapacity, price pressure and strong competition. As a consequence, packaged LED volume was about 30% lower than expected and revenue shrank due to strong ASP pressure. In 2012, most companies have moved to the new "El Dorado" the of LED business: general lighting, which represents the next "killer application" for LEDs. However, enabling massive adoption of the technology for such an application still requires a large decrease in the cost of LED-based products.
New forecast data from GII partner publisher Yole Développement estimates the market for packaged LED will reach $11.4 billion in 2012, and will peak to $17.1 billion by 2018. Growth will be driven both by the Display (LCD TV) and General Lighting applications until massive adoption of LEDs in lighting. From 2014, the third growth cycle of the LED business will accelerate with the General Lighting application representing more than 50% of the overall packaged LED business.
