Global Market Value of High-Brightness LEDs Estimated to Go Further Down

Aug 25, 2011 The original estimate of the high-brightness LEDs world market  for 2011 was $10.6 billion, yet recent dramatic market changes have made the analysts to bring the estimate down to $9 billion. Still the $9 billion market would be an 8% increase relatively to the last year.

LED TV backlight market value  in 2011 has been seen to drop 18% from year 2010.  It was reported by the TrendForce that the value of the market has barely reached $1.4 billion. The main reasons for that are believed to be weakening demand for the backlight LEDs, rapidly plummeting average prices on LEDs  and resulting market oversupply. It is also stressed out that the excess supply situation will likely remain unchanged in the nearest future, and the prices may continue to decline, therefore making the overall LED backlight market value drop even further.

Another reason stated for the decreasing demand for LEDs used in the backlight of TV screens is the increasing brightness of the latest generations of diodes. For example, in 2009 Samsung 42-inch TV required 360 LEDs for the backlight, while now an average of 130 LEDs will do the same or even better job.

It is expected that in 2012 South Korean manufacturers will launch entry-level LED screen panels in hope of cost reduction ind sales increase. TrendForce believes this would cause additional increase in LED penetration rate, but will also likely result in 20-30% decline in LED usage volume.
