Nichia ranked top-revenue packaged LED supplier, with 12.9% market share, followed by Osram and Lumileds

According to the new 2016 edition of the IHS Markit's 'Packaged LED Report' (its annual revenue-share ranking of the top LED suppliers in backlighting, automotive, lighting and other applications), Nichia led in both lighting and mobile applications for 2015, with 12.9% share of the total packaged LED market. Nichia was followed by Osram and Lumileds with a combined share of 14.7%.

"It's not a surprise that Nichia led in more than one application," comments Alice Tao, senior analyst (LEDs and lighting) for IHS Markit. "In 2015, Nichia overtook Cree, which led the lighting category in 2014," she adds. "Nichia was also very strong in mobile phone LEDs, since the company is a major supplier for Apple's iPhone."

Samsung was the leading supplier in backlighting, which includes LEDs used in TVs, monitors, notebook PCs and tablet PCs. Nichia followed in second position and LG Innotek ranked third.

Osram has been the leading supplier of automotive LEDs for many years. Its market share was 35% in 2015 for LEDs used in the total automotive market and 40% for those used in the automotive exterior market. It also led in the 'other' application category, which includes LEDs used for industrial, medical, security, projection, signage and off-specification applications.
