Save the Date – LED Market Briefing at ForumLED Europe 2011
From Sapphire wafers to Luminaires : is the overall LED value chain ready for Lighting? For the 2nd time, Yole Développement is organizing the LED Market Briefing in Lyon, France. Presentations will take place on Dec. 7th, 2011 at the ForumLED Europe 2011.
From Sapphire wafers to Luminaires : is the overall LED value chain ready for Lighting?
General lighting application will be the next and largest market ever for LED light sources. However, for most applications, LEDs are still too expensive. The industry consensus points toward the need for an additional 8x to 10x reduction in packaged LED cost of ownership expressed in $/lumen within the next 4-5 years in order to compete broadly with incumbent technologies and enable massive adoption in most lighting application segments. At the luminaire level, the packaged LED still represents a large fraction of the total cost and is critical to performance and reliability. At the LED device level, the packaging currently represents 25-55% of the total cost depending on the design and the various IP licensing agreements.
“LED Lighting, the Road ahead: beyond efficacy enhancements, GaN on Silicon will drive led costs to enable led adoption in general lighting”
The LED Market Briefing will highlight how LED industry is ready to address these challenges all over the value-chain. Detailed program will be available first week of November.
