China's, South Korea's, and Japan's Plans for LEDs

Aug 5, 2011 LEDs are expected to become more ubiquitous within the next four years thanks to Korea, Japan, and China and their new plans for furthering the presence of LEDs. These lights are involved in "a niche market" for MOCVD and semiconductor processing tool suppliers.

LED makers are already investing more capital due to the higher demand for LEDs in products like notebook backlights. South Korea plans to incorporate LED lighting in all of its public uses and expects LEDs to gain a foothold in the majority of the nation by 2020. The $185 million South Korea plans to spend in energy-efficiency rebates over the course of a year signals its push to become invested in LEDs. Japan also expects increased sales of LEDs--enough for the users in the population to jump fr om 40% to over 50% in the second half of this year. China is expected to establish five or six major manufacturers of LEDs that will compete globally, as well as become "the largest consumer of LEDs" by 2015.

China's plan to become a competitive, low-cost manufacturer of LEDs within the next five years, in addition to South Korea's public investment in and Japan's growing use of these energy-efficient lights mark a new era of lighting, where LEDs are a serious contender.
