Taiwan's Genesis Photonics transitioning to CSP LEDs for automotive lighting

Taiwan-based LED epiwafer maker Genesis Photonics Inc (GPI) of Tainan Science Park outlined its future roadmap, stating that it was re-directing its focus to CSP LEDs for automotive lighting, according to Money DJ.com, reports LEDinside.

Genesis Photonics says that its CSP LED products have successfully entered the Taiwan and US markets. Additionally, it is accelerating its Chinese automotive luminaire certification process, with the aim of entering China's supply chain by first-half 2017, and estimates that it will profit from this strategic transition.

Genesis Photonics has entered high-end automotive headlights and other lighting markets. The capacity of CSP LEDs to be driven at high voltage and to deliver high-brightness performances makes them suitable for consumer electronics applications. The firm is still developing CSP LEDs for smartphone flash light applications, which are expected to contribute to revenues in first-quarter 2017.

Based on GPI's business transition plans, traditional blue LEDs' share of revenue will be slashed from 80% in late 2015 to just 30% by early 2017. The firm has announced its intention of selling its LED manufacturing facility in Kunshan, Jiangsu, China to further lower its traditional blue LED production, and is seeking a potential buyer.

To strengthen its future product portfolio and gross margin performance, GPI officially exited the low-end LED lighting market in October.
