NEW YORK, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
LED Supply Chain Dynamics
The lighting industry is on the verge of a large-scale shift away from the traditional technologies of fluorescent, incandescent, and high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting toward light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Adoption rates of LED lighting are expected to soar in the coming years as the efficacy and quality of LEDs surpass those of competing technologies and as prices fall to enable reasonable payback periods. This transition has been widely expected for a number of years, leading to the launch of new LED-focused companies and to the repositioning of existing lighting companies to take advantage of LED sales. Now that the rise of the LED has begun, the repercussions are rippling up and down the LED supply chain.
One effect is consolidation in this sector, driven by a desire for vertical integration among the larger lighting companies, which in turn is being driven by the relentless demand for lower prices and higher quality. While the total number of vendors involved in the LED supply chain will likely shrink, other factors – including the expiration of existing patents, new interchangeability standards, new technologies, and an expected upsurge in creative product designs will create opportunities for new entrants at each level of the supply chain. Navigant Research forecasts that annual worldwide revenue from LED lamps will grow from just over $1.5 billion in 2013 to more than $8.5 billion in 2021.
This Navigant Research report examines the specific trends that affect the manufacture of the primary components of an LED light, as well as the broad trends reshaping the industry as a whole. Regional influences and applicable international standards are detailed, and an industry map shows how some of the larger vendors fit within the supply chain. Finally, recommendations are made for how industry players can best take advantage of the global opportunity presented by the shift toward LED lighting.
Key Questions Addressed:
• What industry trends are affecting manufacturers of each of the components that make up an LED light, and what forces are shaping the broader industry?
• How can established and startup lighting companies position themselves for success in the rapidly changing LED lighting market?
• Which international specifications are influencing the design of components and the dynamics amongst component manufacturers?
• How will the coming rapid adoption of LED lighting affect various companies across the LED supply chain?
• What regional trends will have an impact on LED manufacturing?
• How will oversupply and contraction in China affect the world LED market?
