LED packaging firms target niche markets as prices of high- and mid-power LEDs fall in China

The average prices of mainstream high- and mid-power LED package products in the Chinese market slid 2-4% and 1-8% respectively in December, according to the latest report from LEDinside (a division of TrendForce).

“LED manufacturers have continued to clear their inventories in December due to the weak demand at the year end, which lowered the prices in the general lighting market,” says analyst Terri Wang.

Faced with the sluggish demand, LED packaging companies continue to explore niche markets, with horticultural lighting, human centric lighting, and connected lighting being the focus.

For example, US-based Lumileds has released the LUXEON SunPlus 2835 LED series for horticultural lighting, with eight color options and customized spectrum available. South Korea’s Samsung has also launched a new product series for horticultural lighting, including full-spectrum packages and modules. Blue light, red light and infrared LEDs are available, and the products have been mass produced. For the future, Samsung plans to integrate smart sensing or connected solutions to horticultural lighting LED products. Japan’s Nichia has introduced COB, a new human-centric lighting product series that can be used for commercial lighting like retailing stores. The color temperature can change according to the features of products displayed, or according to users’ biological clock when used for home lighting.
