UVC LEDs are one solution to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s been more than 10 years that the industry has waited for this moment to happen, and all the players have worked hard to make it possible.” asserts Pars Mukish, Business Unit Manager, Solid-State Lighting & Display at Yole Développement (Yole). “UVC LEDs are still much more expensive than traditional UV lamps, but manufacturers have got closer to the requirements of the early majority willing to use the technology. Indeed, from ~$100/ mW in 2015, UVC LED prices reached $0.3-2/ mW in 2019, which represents a real threshold for most potential large-volume integrators”.
According to Joël Thomé, CEO of PISEO: “Indeed, the analysis of the portfolio and roadmaps of UV-C LED manufacturers confirms the trends observed for several years: a rapid and regular drop in prices and a significant increase in performance (power and efficiency), which should allow UV-C LED to establish itself in the field of disinfection by UV-C radiation, at mid or long term depending on the applications”.
In this context, both companies, Yole and PISEO investigate disruptive LED technologies and related markets in depth, to point out the latest innovations and underline the business opportunities.
The UV LEDs – Market and Technology Trends 2020 report from Yole gives detailed analysis of the UVC LED market by disinfection application, of the UVC LED manufacturing cost and of the main UV LED applications. Including market forecast, supply chain, technology manufacturing, performance, price and industry analysis, this study reviews the global UV LED industry. This new report also studies COVID-19 pandemic’s impacts on the UV LED business.
In parallel, the UV-C LEDs at the Time of COVID-19 report from PISEO points out the artificial and principles for integrating UV-C LEDs and sizing systems for disinfection, in relation to the required doses.This report studies the dimensioning and implementation of UVC LED systems for disinfection and the characterization of their germicidal efficiency. It also analyzes the regulations and standardization of the UVC LED in Europe and provides the state of the art of UVC LED technology and the outlook for performance changes, compared to traditional UVC sources.
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.
