We are a design house and we also notice an increase in the use of LED in various applications that were not possible before. We are asked more and more to develop complex and powerful system based on LED. Its not only product sales volume that rise but also design sevices.

I fully agree!  I was at Costco the other day and found that there are now flash lights with almost 1000 lumens of output from a single white LED! The Cree XLamp XM-L LEDs with 1000 lumens from a single die is quite amazing.  In fact, the payback for a 100W LED bulb that costs ~$10/ea is now less than 6 months with energy costs running ~$0.1/KW-Hr.  Also, where incandescents lasts only ~1,200 hrs, CFL bulbs last ~8,000 hrs, and LED bulbs lasts ~25,000 hours -- a no contest for LED bulbs.  Cost savings becomes increasingly obvious if one factors in maintenance expenses.
