High Brightness LED Market
Sector to witness massive gains with surging demand for energy-efficient lighting technology
High brightness LED market has established its bearings significantly in today’s world, with LEDs gaining precedence over CFLs. Depleting energy resources and increasing carbon emissions have directed the demand for energy conservation to top the priority lists in all sectors. The government and regulatory bodies across the globe are strictly implementing energy conservation norms, which in turn is triggering heavy deployment of energy saving lighting sources.
An ordinary light bulb transforms 100 Joules of electric energy into 5 J of light energy and 95 J of heat energy, in which case, the latter is a complete waste. In comparison, the energy saving light bulb saves 50% to 70% of energy and increases the life span of the device, which is in the range of 50,000 hours to 100,000 hours, thus offering huge potential. The extended life cycle of these bulbs leads to lower replacement and maintenance costs, which in turn is driving high brightness LED market size. As per a report by Global Market Insights, Inc., “High Brightness LED industry is set to witness a revenue of over USD 22 billion by 2023, at a y-o-y growth of 4.9% over the period 2016-2023.”
These popular high brightness LED technologies are already commercially available in a range of new products in the automotive, backlight, mobile, and lighting applications.
