2011 was quite a bad year for most players in the LED industry, due to overcapacity and the entry of several new players, mostly from Asia. Lower adoption of LEDs in the TV market and the arrival of government-backed Chinese companies created a climate of price pressure and intense competition – all of which has transformed the once-flourishing industry into a real “mess”.
In 2012, most companies have shifted their mind on the new “El Dorado” of LED business: general lighting, the next killer application for LEDs. But enabling massive adoption of the technology for such application still requires a strong decrease of the cost of LEDs. As packaging typically accounts for 20% to 50% of the packaged LED cost, it represents therefore the single largest opportunity for cost reduction at the LED component level…
In this webcast, you will discover:
- Key technology trends in LED packaging
- Companies that are the most involved in the domain and their related strategy to minimize cost of packaging
- Impact of cost reduction on LED value chain and markets
- Main parameters to follow to get a clear vision of the market evolution
