U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently released a version of the 2014 Solid State Lighting R & D program (MYPP). MYPP updated annually and focused on the current status quo of solid state lighting development, and provide important targets and plans for industrial development in the coming years, which is indeed LED industry leader and guiding light. Therefore, to grasp one of the trends in the industry and have comprehensive understandings of the market opportunities play a key role.
2013, U.S. LED lighting installation number reached 105 million, the energy cost savings for $ 1.8 billion, more than double 2012’s. 2013, the United States LED indoor and outdoor lighting installations penetration reached 1.3% and 5.8%. 2014, with 40W and 60W incandescent disabling policies affect the fermentation, indoor LED lighting penetration rate is expected to accelerate the upgrade.
Enhancing light efficiency of LED packaging products while prices continuing to fall. DOE revised LED efficiency targets in the new version to 250LM / W, price of 0.5 $ / klm. In addition, LED A-lamp prices fell significantly, currently the United States does not replace 60W incandescent lamp dimmable A19 LED bulb price can be as low as 10 dollars, dimmable, as low as 13 dollars. In the areas having subsidy policies, the price is even lower.
Cree and Philips have all released sample lights whose efficiencies are more than 200LM / W. Therefore, to 2025, the average light effect of LED lighting products could reach 200LM / W and market penetration will reach 60% in order to achieve the American 217 terawatt energy-saving targets.
