The LED Revolution: Market Analysis and Insight On Reducing Manufacturing Costs

Information Network, Date of Publication: Apr 19, 2017, 208 Pages
Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are on the verge of revolutionizing the lighting market. As a general illumination lighting source, LED products surpass many conventional lighting technologies (including incandescent and fluorescent light sources) in energy efficiency, lifetime, and versatility and rival them in color and light quality. Having already significantly penetrated several colored light applications, such as traffic signals and exit signs, white-light LED products have recently been commercialized. LEDs can be found in directional lamp fittings such as downlights, display, accent, under-cabinet lighting, as well as in area light fittings such as parking, roadway, and troffer lighting applications.

This report analyzes the LED Backlight market for Notebook PCs, LCD TVs, Desktop Monitors, Large Others, and Small/Medium LEDs. In analyzes the markets for Lighting, Active Outdoor Displays, Signals, Automotive, Mobile, and others.
