In 2022, the output value of the lighting LED market will exceed 8.1 billion US dollars

Governments around the world have higher and higher requirements for energy saving. It is expected that the output value of the lighting LED market will opportunity to reach 8.11 billion US dollars in 2022, a year-on-year increase of 9.2%. In the next few years, the lighting LED market size will continue to grow driven by factors such as human-centric lighting (HCL), smart lighting, etc., and is expected to reach US$11.1 billion by 2026, with a compound annual growth rate from 2021 to 2026 (CAGR) was 8.4%.

In 2022, the output value of the lighting LED market will exceed 8.1 billion US dollars

Despite the continued impact of the epidemic in 2022, the popularity of vaccines and the recovery of economic activity, coupled with the rigid demand of the lighting market as a daily necessity, the global “carbon neutrality” and the growing demand in recent years, the energy-saving agenda has prompted many major countries to increase Measures such as energy efficiency and low-carbon heating achieve net-zero emissions. Lighting is the main energy consumer in buildings, accounting for 20%-30% of total building energy consumption. Driven by the upgrade of aging equipment, the penetration rate of LED will continue to increase. In addition, smart lighting can also achieve the purpose of timely energy saving.

The gradual recovery of the lighting market is clearly reflected in the 2021 vendor revenue rankings. MLS, the leading manufacturer of lighting LEDs, ranks first by revenue with a 34% revenue growth rate in 2021.

In terms of pricing, the demand in the lighting industry will gradually pick up in 2021. In the face of the demand for higher specification end-use products and the impact of rising raw materials and comprehensive operating costs, LED packaging factories will no longer adopt pricing strategies to seize additional market share and allow the lighting of LED products. Pricing stabilizes and picks up in 2021. From the perspective of product categories, the annual growth rate of 2835LED, 3030LED, and 5630LED is 2.1%-4.4%. The market price of high-power lighting LED products (above 1 watt) such as ceramic substrate LED and 7070LED has an average annual increase of 3%-6%.

LED explosion-proof lights have passed the most stringent international certification

Since the beginning of the 21st century, with the rapid development of my country’s petroleum, chemical, mining, and other industries, lighting fixtures have become more and more widely used in production, storage, and rescue, with more and more varieties. It is particularly important to prevent the accidental explosion of lighting fixtures in explosive gas dangerous places.

LED explosion-proof lights have passed the most stringent international certification

According to reports, the LED explosion-proof lamps produced by ENELTEC can at least reduce power consumption by more than 80% compared with traditional explosion-proof lighting, and save more than 80% of electricity expenses.

“Because most of the original components and materials of this project can be recycled and reused, and do not contain harmful or toxic substances, it has a good protective effect on the ecological environment and greatly improves the comprehensive recycling and reuse of resources.” said the chairman of ENELTEC.

According to reports, over the years, ENELTEC has established a strong technical team and achieved many scientific research results with the development of a green economy, the realization of energy saving and emission reduction goals, and the creation of a world-renowned brand of explosion-proof lamps as its own responsibility.

The chairman of ENELTEC said, “Our company has high- and intermediate-level professor-level technical and scientific research talents. The company’s series of products represent the leading level of similar products at home and abroad. All products have their own intellectual property rights and have obtained China and the world’s patent certificates. And it has been sold in more than 100 countries around the world and has obtained the ENELLTECCESP trademark.”

At present, ENELTEC’s products have passed ISO9001 quality system certification and ISO14001 environmental system certification. The products have been certified by China’s national lighting testing center, China’s explosion-proof certification CNEX, European explosion-proof certification, and international explosion-proof certification.

At present, it has been sold to more than 100 countries and regions in the world. Many well-known domestic and foreign companies such as Sinopec and PetroChina have become ENELTEC’s suppliers and partners.

Not only has a good reputation in China, but the explosion-proof products exported by ENELTEC have also been recognized by developed countries. The key technical indicators such as explosion-proof performance, waterproof performance, anti-corrosion performance, dust-proof performance and life test of its products are currently ranked first in the world by the UL and DLC testing centers designated by the US government.

Public information shows that the UL certification body in the United States is an independent professional organization that conducts tests for public safety. It was founded in 1894. In the initial stage, UL mainly relied on the funds provided by the fire insurance department to maintain its operation. It was not until 1916 that UL was completely independent. After nearly a hundred years of development, UL has become a world-renowned certification body with a set of strict organizational management systems, standard development and product certification procedures. Therefore, people in the industry usually refer to UL certification as the most stringent certification. In addition to the US UL, CUL, DLC, ETL, CETL and other authoritative certifications, ENELTEC has also obtained CE, ROHS, ATEX certifications in Europe, and SAA and C-Tick certifications in Australia.

Problems that need to be avoided when purchasing LED lamps

With the continuous innovation of LED technology, LED lighting products have been widely used in lighting fields such as home, office, and public facilities construction. Now LED lights have propped up half of the lighting industry. Under the trend of replacement of LED lights, the replacement of traditional light tubes with LED tubes has gradually become a trend. So, what is the current LED lamp market situation? What is its optoelectronic performance? Is the safety performance up to standard?

Problems that need to be avoided when purchasing LED lamps

We have specially planned the in-depth evaluation of the LED T8 1.2m tube in this issue. We have purchased a total of five LED T8 1.2m tubes from Philips, 3 well-known domestic lighting brands, and a non-brand manufacturer from the lighting market, and invited a third-party testing agency. –Shenzhen Nanfang Lixun Testing Co., Ltd. reveals the real performance of LED lamps currently on the market from the aspects of optoelectronic performance and safety and provides a reference for consumers to buy LED lamps.

We all know that one of the most intuitive parameters that reflect the energy-saving and high-efficiency characteristics of LED lighting products is luminous efficiency. The calculation formula is the ratio of total luminous flux to total power, and the unit is lumens/watt (lm/w). Generally speaking, the higher the luminous efficiency, the stronger the ability of the lighting fixture to convert electrical energy into light energy, that is, the stronger the energy saving of the lighting fixture under the condition of providing the same brightness; under the same power, the lighting of the lighting fixture The stronger the sex, the greater the brightness.

Through the comparison of various parameters, consumers can be more targeted when purchasing LED T8 lamps. First of all, due to the risk of electric shock, brand B, brand C, and brand D products should be excluded first when purchasing. In addition, among the remaining two LED T8 lamp products, Philips has more advantages in light efficiency, which also means that the product has higher lighting efficiency and more energy saving. It should be noted that although brand A products have more advantages in terms of price, they do not meet IEC standards in terms of safety, so consumers also need to be cautious in purchasing.

At present, the world is still in the stage of LED lamps replacing traditional lamps, and China has become the most important manufacturing base for LED lamps. While the industry is prosperous and developed, the safety of LED lamps has not attracted widespread attention. Due to the internal electrical connection between the two ends of the pins of some double-ended LED lamps, when one end of the double-ended LED lamp is inserted into a live lamp socket, the other floating end will be charged. In practical application, since the installation user often cannot tell whether the light switch has cut off the power supply when one end of the double-ended LED light is inserted, the charged pin at the other end may cause an electric shock to the installer, which will cause electric shock injury and additional injury of human fall.

In the authoritative International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard IEC 62776, this safety requirement is called: Pin-safety during insertion (the safety of the lamp pin during insertion). In the IEC62776 standard, there are clear specifications and requirements for the safety of the lamp pin when the double-ended LED lamp is inserted into the lamp. Because the formulation of relevant safety standards in our country lags behind that of IEC, my country has not yet issued a national standard for the safety of LED lamps, and there is no way to regulate the safety of the pins of LED lamps when they are inserted.

In addition, it is not difficult to find through comparison that domestic brands have more or less hidden dangers in terms of safety, mainly due to the lack of relevant domestic safety standards and the lack of consumers’ knowledge of LED lighting safety. We also hope that the country can issue relevant safety standards as soon as possible to standardize products on the market and avoid potential safety hazards because the safety of consumers’ lives and property is priceless!

LED light pole screen is an important front-end entrance for smart city information collection

In recent years, with the introduction of the concept of smart citiesLED light pole screen is an important front-end entrance for smart city information collection, many cities in my country have set off a wave of building smart cities. Subsequently, the “14th Five-Year Plan Outline” was issued, which pointed out the construction of smart cities and digital villages, boosting urban and rural development and innovation of governance models with digitalization, and comprehensively improving operational efficiency and livability. As an important “role” in the construction of smart cities, smart street lights can be expected to have a lot of room for development, and LED light pole screens, as important supporting equipment, will usher in greater opportunities.


In the process of building a smart city, it is actually not difficult to find. Smart street lights are like a huge “spider web”, which can be described as “extending in all directions” and can be effectively integrated into various environments of the city. As an important information release terminal, the LED light pole screen plays a more important role in this “spider web”: it uses the advantages of “interconnection of all things”, plus its own functions and other functions, as the information for building a smart city. Important front-end entry for acquisition.

It is worth mentioning that the LED light pole screen has been implemented in more scenarios through the intelligent trend, and it is slowly covering the old and old traditional information dissemination methods and gradually becoming the mainstream application of information dissemination in the era of wisdom. Taking the LED light pole screen as the main entry point, using its precise market positioning and unique innovative perspective, it is further integrated into the smart street light and smart city construction phalanx.

Of course, LED light pole screens are not only outstanding in smart construction. With the introduction and advocacy of a series of national policies, LED light pole screens, as a carrier with more compatibility and scalability, are supporting street light poles. The application form of the smart city is well known to the public, and with the popularization of the concept of building a smart city around the world, the overseas application market is gradually expanding.

It can be seen that the LED light pole screen has created a new way of intelligent construction information transmission with its own advantages. Under the current boom of smart city construction, with the common development of smart street lights + LED light pole screens, it is not difficult to predict that the application market of LED light pole screens will reach a new high.

LED Lighting: The Best ‘Atmosphere Group’ for the Winter Olympics

During the Beijing Winter Olympics, the beautiful LED screen won people’s attention. In contrast, LED lighting-related products have become the behind-the-scenes heroes of all aspects of the Beijing Winter Olympics, and have played an important role in the guarantee and atmosphere of the event.

LED Lighting: The Best 'Atmosphere Group' for the Winter Olympics

The lighting difficulty of the Winter Olympics events was originally higher than that of the Summer Olympics – the events are played on ice or snow, and there will be reflections or overexposure. The lighting should fully consider the visual experience of the live audience and the viewing experience of the TV audience. Olympic Broadcasting Service (OBS) CEO Ianis Exarks said that the Beijing Winter Olympics used UHD and HDR technology for the first time, and used ultra-high-definition and high-dynamic-range 4K technology to shoot, produce and broadcast event programs. The stroboscopic indicators of lighting in the venues of the Winter Olympics put forward higher requirements.

On the basis of flexibility, high efficiency, and energy-saving, in order to ensure the effectiveness of the event, each venue of the Beijing Winter Olympics has customized a set of lighting solutions, which can meet the different lighting needs of various events such as event preparation, event execution, and awards.

For example, Signify is responsible for the design and supply of lighting systems for major Winter Olympics venues, including the Capital Gymnasium. As a competition venue for figure skating and speed skating, Capital Gymnasium adopts Philips LED sports lighting products and Interact Sports intelligent interconnected lighting system. Visual effects to create a better viewing experience. Its lighting products have high color reproduction and support flicker-free ultra-slow-motion playback, which can meet the stringent ultra-high-definition broadcast requirements of international events, and allow TV viewers around the world to experience clearer and more realistic events experience.

In addition, the arrangement of the lighting system on the snow project is also quite ingenious. “Snow Dragon”, the venue of the National Snowmobile Sled Center in the Yanqing Division of the Beijing Winter Olympics, has undertaken the “F1 Formula Racing” project in the ice and snow sports – the snowmobile sled race. In order to present this excellent track, the lighting supplier of “Snow Dragon”, Horsai, fully considered the glaring energy and glare effect of the white snow track, color rendering index reaches Ra≥90, R9≥45 or high-definition display index TLCI11 Qa≥85, a light source with light efficiency greater than 90lm/W, creating a light source with more uniform and transparent light, no flicker, low-temperature resistance, and uniform brightness as well as the “anti-glare green lighting system”, it has been certified by OBS, BSF (International Snowmobile Association), and FIL (International Luge Association), providing a comfortable competitive track for athletes from all over the world while meeting the broadcast of ultra-high-definition cameras need.

Problems that China’s LED lighting industry will encounter in 2022

(1) Overcapacity accelerates consolidation within the industry

The rapid growth of domestic LED output value has also brought about overcapacity in the industry as a whole. The overcapacity further accelerates the integration and de-capacity in the industry and promotes the growth and development of the LED industry in the fluctuation. In the field of LED epitaxial chips, the pressure of destocking leading enterprises is increasing, and the excess capacity is transferred to low-end products, resulting in fierce competition in the general-purpose LED chip market and a continuous decline in prices. Small and medium-sized LED chip companies have compressed production capacity or even shut down, which indirectly reduces the market demand for LED front-end equipment. In the packaging field, affected by the continuous release of LED packaging capacity and the continuous reduction of profits, the packaging prices of small and medium-power products have dropped significantly, and the prices of high-power devices have also shown a slight downward trend. It is forced to develop in the direction of customized light source characteristics. In the field of LED applications, the profits of traditional general lighting continue to shrink. Large enterprises with strong design capabilities, master channel resources, and brand advantages are also affected and forced to turn to emerge fields such as LED displays. Small and medium-sized enterprises are increasingly difficult to survive.

Problems that China's LED lighting industry will encounter in 2022

In 2021, the global LED industry’s willingness to invest will decline as a whole under the new crown pneumonia epidemic. Under the background of Sino-US trade friction and the appreciation of the RMB exchange rate, the automation process of LED enterprises has accelerated and the industry’s intensive integration has become a new trend. With the gradual emergence of overcapacity and thinning profits in the LED industry, international LED manufacturers have frequently integrated and withdrawn in recent years, and the survival pressure of my country’s leading LED enterprises has further increased. Although my country’s LED enterprises have recovered their exports due to the transfer substitution effect, in the long run, it is inevitable that my country’s export substitution to other countries will weaken, and the domestic LED industry is still facing the dilemma of overcapacity.

(2) Price fluctuations caused by rising raw material prices

In 2021, the prices of products in the LED industry will continue to rise. Relevant domestic and foreign companies such as GE Current, Universal Lighting Technologies (ULT), Leyard, Unilumin Technology, Mulinsen, etc. have raised product prices many times, with an average increase of about 5%, of which the price of very few products in short supply has increased by as much as 30%. The fundamental reason is that the price of LED products fluctuates due to rising raw material prices. First of all, due to the impact of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the supply chain cycle of the global LED industry has been blocked, resulting in rising raw material prices. Due to the tension between supply and demand of raw materials, upstream and downstream manufacturers in the industry chain have adjusted the prices of raw materials to varying degrees, including upstream and downstream raw materials such as LED display driver ICs, RGB packaging devices, and PCB sheets. Secondly, affected by the Sino-US trade friction, the phenomenon of “lack of core” has spread in China. Many related manufacturers have increased their investment in research and development of products in the fields of AI and 5G, which has compressed the original production capacity of the LED industry, which will further lead to rising raw material prices. . Finally, due to the increase in logistics and transportation costs, the cost of raw materials has also increased. Whether it is lighting or display areas, the trend of rising prices will not subside in the short term. However, from the perspective of the long-term development of the industry, rising prices will help manufacturers optimize and upgrade their product structure and increase product value.

(3) There are more repetitive investments in emerging fields

Due to the relatively scattered distribution of LED industry investment across the country, there is a problem of repetitive investment in emerging fields. For example, Mini/Micro LED display technology has excellent characteristics such as high brightness, high integration, high refresh, and flexible display, and has become a new generation of display technology recognized by the industry after OLED and LCD. Mini/Micro LED display products are in the stage of explosive demand, and the broad market prospect makes Mini/Micro LED a hot investment. For example, Ruifeng Optoelectronics raised about 700 million RMB for Mini/Micro LED technology research and development projects, Huacan Optoelectronics is expected to invest 1.5 billion RMB for Mini/Micro LED research and development and manufacturing projects, Leyard, Epistar, Lijingwei Electronics jointly launched the first Micro-LED Research Institute in China. Although new production line projects for Mini/Micro LED have been launched, many technical difficulties such as mass transfer and repair, driving, and color conversion have not been effectively solved, and key materials and equipment are still facing the problem of “stuck neck”. There is uncertainty about the influx of various types of social capital, guiding funds and industrial funds into this field. To solve these problems, not only professional investment is needed to lead, and the upstream and downstream industries will be driven to achieve linkage, but also key links need to be fulfilled. Make up for shortcomings.

LED will be the core of plant lighting

According to the data, LED as a light source of plant lighting has many advantages such as high photoelectric conversion efficiency, easy spectrum control and combination, small size, long life, and low energy consumption compared with traditional light sources.

LED will be the core of plant lighting

In 2021, the global demand for plant lighting LED lamps is 3.2 billion US dollars and will reach 7 billion US dollars by 2026. The global plant lighting system-level market in 2017 is only about 3.8 billion US dollars; in 2027, it will rapidly increase to 17 billion US dollars, with a compound annual growth rate of 16%; the LED device level market is only US$100 million in 2017, and will expand to 700 million US dollars in 2027; The compound growth rate reached 21%.

In addition, with the improvement of LED light efficiency, the continuous reduction of costs, and the domestic and local policy support for digital and modern agriculture, Guosheng Securities said that the future LED plant lighting solution will solve the problem of limited land resources and unstable climate. It plays an important role in the influence of sexuality, and there is huge room for development.

The input-output ratio of LED plant lighting becomes the focus of the terminal

The recognition and acceptance of LED plant lighting technology by terminal planters has reached a high level, and their willingness to use LED plant lighting is also becoming stronger and stronger, however, the initial investment of LED plant lighting is relatively high, and the input-output ratio has become the main concern of terminal growers.

The input-output ratio of LED plant lighting becomes the focus of the terminal

ENELTEC pointed out that in the application scenario of plant lighting, electricity bills account for the highest proportion of customer expenditures. Therefore, the current difficulty of promotion focuses on how to balance the contradiction between short-term cost increase and long-term benefit release.

ENELTEC pointed out that LED plant lighting has broad prospects. In addition to emerging products, traditional planting manufacturers will also use LED to replace traditional lighting. However, the one-time investment of LED plant lighting is high, and the yield period is long, which has become the main concern of farmers.

In addition, ENELTEC also pointed out that currently, the main market for LED plant lighting is overseas, which is affected by many factors such as cost, planting area, crop maturity period, and local environment. But at the same time, the domestic market is also gradually developing. In the future, with the progress of LED technology and people’s unremitting pursuit of quality, the domestic market will be gradually developed.

Hongli Zhihui also expressed its views on the unbalanced development of horticultural lighting in the domestic and overseas markets.

According to reports, plant lighting is developing in the direction of specialization, efficiency and intelligence, but high-quality LED plant lighting manufacturers are mainly concentrated in foreign countries, and the layout of domestic manufacturers is not very obvious. On the one hand, the domestic plant lighting industry is in the early stage of development, and the products are still mainly exported from low-end products; on the other hand, it is due to the problems of low input-output ratio and expensive output products in domestic plant factories. The main obstacle for LED enterprises to develop plant lighting.

In addition, the absence of industry standards is also a problem that needs to be solved urgently in the promotion of plant lighting.

Li Deda believes that the establishment of plant lighting industry standards will play a very important role in the standardization of the plant lighting industry and the guidance of technical directions, which can avoid enterprises going in the wrong direction and reduce the waste of social resources. In addition, the establishment of industry standards can also enhance the trust of end users in horticultural lighting products, thereby accelerating the use of horticultural lighting fixtures in the downstream planting market.

Ruifeng Optoelectronics also pointed out that plant lighting is a multidisciplinary and comprehensive technical field, and the industry lacks unified standards. At the same time, compared with conventional lighting, plant lighting needs to be combined with the actual needs and usage scenarios of customers. A reasonable and efficient solution is actually verified and the import cycle is also longer.

There is no doubt that the establishment of standards in the LED plant lighting industry will help promote the orderly development of the entire plant lighting field, but the establishment of industry standards cannot be accomplished overnight.

ENELTEC believes that it is difficult to formulate standards that are conducive to the development of the industry before society has a sufficient understanding of a new industry. The formulation of standards is a dynamic process that needs to be formulated when the industry develops to a certain extent. And once it is found that there is a lagging problem in the standard, it needs to be revised in time to keep it forward-looking.

Tainan Anping Installed LED Strobe Lights

There is a lot of traffic in Anping District, Tainan City. In order to reduce the occurrence of car accidents, the police installed solar LED flashing warning lights at the intersections that are prone to accidents or dimly lit curved roads this month. If drivers see the red and blue warning lights at the intersection while drive, that is, you will slow down, pay attention to the surrounding traffic conditions, and pass the intersection safely.

Tainan Anping Installed LED Strobe Lights

There are many agencies in Anping District. Tainan City Government, City Council, Tainan District Court, and Election Committee are the Tainan Municipal Operation Center. There are Anping Port and Anping Industrial Zone in the south, and the Science and Technology Zone in the north. There are many people commuting to get off work on weekdays. During regular holidays or consecutive holidays, Anping Castle, Eternal Golden City, Yuguang Island, and Anping Old Street will attract a large number of people and vehicles.

According to statistics from the Tainan Police Fourth Branch, there were 1,231 traffic accidents (A1+A2) involving injuries in Anping District from January to November this year, most of which occurred on Anping Road, Anbei Road, Zhonghua West Road, Minquan Road, Yonghua Road, and Huaping Road. , Qingping Road, Jianping Road, Yuping Road and Jiansan 3rd Street, etc., the major causes of the accident were “failure to give way to the car, fail to maintain a safe distance, and turn without compliance with regulations”.

In view of the repeated occurrence of traffic accidents in some sections of the road, 36 sets of solar LED strobe warning lights were donated by the Tainan Police 4th Sub-Bureau Jingyou Station. The solar LED strobe lights are LED red and blue strobe warning lights powered by solar photovoltaic panels, which automatically after dark. Turn on the flashing lights so that the driver can detect it from a distance, slow down and pay attention to intersection conditions.

Gan Yanmin, director of the sub-bureau, said that the sub-bureau has set up flashing lights at the intersections and road sections that are prone to accidents, such as curves, fast speed, and dim vision, so as to improve the safety of driving in intersections and sections, and can effectively deter the public’s mentality of being lucky and breaking the rules, so as to help the police. We are committed to playing the role of “silent guardian” at night. We hope that people who come to Anping for sightseeing or pass by Anping will be more alert and slow down when they see the “LED Solar Strobe Light”.

Quality lighting illuminates the rise of the nation

The Monument to the People’s Heroes was built in 1993. It is a “red” landmark building in memory of the revolutionary martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the liberation of Shanghai in 1840. In the shape of the building, the three optimistic pillars rising from the ground are like speechless monuments, remembering the immortal martyrs who sacrificed gloriously during the Opium War, the May Fourth Movement, and the War of Liberation.

Quality lighting illuminates the rise of the nation

In the lighting renovation of the building, for the irregular shape of the tower, Signify chose high-quality high-power CK ColorReach floodlights and designed three beam angle combinations. This product’s precise optical control and professional color management technology evenly illuminate the towering tower, showing an excellent red lighting effect.
