Lighting will gradually become the mainstream application of LED. Lighting applications demand increase is the LED Lights market which has strong growth driving force. The supplier also aware of this tendency, and plans to increase capacity, the agency forecast 2011 global LED production capacity will reach 18 million, 2013 will reach 22.7 million.
LED market demand continued to increase, but LED backlight demand gradually decreased, and began to transfer LED lighting applications. Since the fourth quarter of 2010, the first quarter of 2011 and early second, led rgb rope light back light market demand reduced, but we estimate the LED back light demand in the third quarter pick up and reached the highest level.
The overall LED market demand continues to increase, but the demand for LED back lighting gradually reduced, and began to transfer towards LED lighting applications. The fourth quarter of 2010, early quarter and second, the LED back light TV inventory level was high and sales slow, LED back light market demand, thereby reducing, but we estimate the demand for led rgb rope light back lighting in the third quarter to rebound and reach the highest level.
At present, LED back light applications in all medium and small size LCD products, portable personal computer penetration of nearly 100%, LCD display and LCD TV's permeability also continued to improve, but each required to reduce the number of LED package. In 2011 LED back light total demand is 4.59 million. Since 2010, LED back light LCD TV became the main application, the total demand of 50%, and they estimate in 2012, reached the highest;But as each LED package to reduce the number of required, expected 2013 TV LED back light demand will be slightly down.
On the Lighting applications, led rgb rope light average penetration in 2010 was 1.4 percent, which expected to reach 9.3% by 2014; They can replace the halogen lamp, LED spotlight applications with high penetration, government policies are also expected to accelerate the LED street light application. In the second quarter of 2011, LED lighting, the total revenue of $ 3.2 billion is expected that in the third quarter will grow rapidly to $ 3.4 billion.
On the perspective of regional, Japan in 2011 is the world's largest LED bulb market, the market share as high as 63%, but in 2014 will be reduced to 40%. As the awareness of power resources and energy-saving consciousness raising in Japan, LED lighting system of the high permeability, until 2014, it will be the largest lighting market.
