UV LED: After the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, what is the status of this industry?

The UV lighting market will double or treble in size in the next five years, driven by disinfection and new functionalities.

“There is good in everything bad”, asserts Pars Mukish, Business Unit Manager, Solid-State Lighting & Display at Yole Développement (Yole). “For example, The COVID-19 pandemic has created some perfect use-cases for UV lighting technologies to spread throughout a rapidly changing disinfection market.”

Indeed, SARS-COV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has one of the highest reproduction/transmissibility rates among all viruses that have emerged in our modern society. To reduce the spread of the disease, light in the UVC wavelength band, which can deactivate bacteria and viruses through physical methods, has gained unprecedented attention. Overall, there will be a “before” and an “after” the COVID-19 pandemic for the UV lighting industry.

According to Joël Thomé, CEO of PISEO: “Indeed, the health crisis due to the SARS-CoV-2 virus has generated unprecedented demand for the design and manufacture of disinfection systems using optical UV rays. LED manufacturers have seized this opportunity, and we are currently seeing an explosion in UV-C LED products.”

In this context, the two companies Yole and PISEO combined their expertise to investigate the disruptive LED technologies and related markets in depth. The partners highlight the latest innovations and underline the business opportunities. They analyze the latest technology and market trends in the specific context of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has strongly impacted the UV industry in general.

Released today, the UV LEDs and UV Lamps – Market and Technology Trends 2021 report from Yole is a comprehensive survey of UV light sources, providing a deep understanding of the UV lamp and UV LED businesses. It also reviews and details the traditional UV lamp market, its main applications and associated characteristics, the market metrics, leading players’ positioning and strategies. Considering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on all aspects, Yole’s report reviews the overall UV LED industry and provides insights into changes in the value/supply chain after the penetration of this disruptive technology.

In parallel, the UV-C LEDs in the Time of COVID-19 – Update November 2021 from PISEO discusses the technical state-of-the-art of UV-C LEDs and possibilities for further development of performance and price. This technical analysis offers a comparative overview of the products of the 27 leading UV-C LED manufacturers.

What is the status of the UV LED industry? What are the economic and technological challenges? What are the key drivers? Who are the suppliers to watch, and what innovative technologies are they working on? How does the COVID-19 outbreak impact each UV LED market segment?

PISEO and Yole deliver today a detailed and comprehensive overview of this
industry.
