TrendForce DRAMeXchange's LED industry research brand LEDinside (LED line) latest "2016 ~ 2021 LED industry demand and supply database" shows that in 2016 due to the UV LED products actively into the application of light curing, sterilization and purification markets, estimated output will grow to $ 166 million (about 1.167 billion yuan), to 2021 will reach 555 million US dollars (about 3.701 billion yuan), the annual compound growth rate of 27%.
UV LED for the mainstream development of UV-A LED and UV-C LED, wherein the UV-A LED light curing more focused on market applications. LEDinside research assistant manager Wu Ying Jie said that in the UV-A LED market, fierce price competition, the overall UV LED market value for two consecutive years was flat at $ 122 million.
However, the regulations prohibit the use of mercury in 2020 will be expected psychology of fermentation, Europe and Japan light curing equipment manufacturers are actively import demand ultraviolet LED, pulled up and change machine replacement market, driving the overall 2021 UV LED market value It will reach $ 555 million.
LEDinside estimates 2016 UV LED curing light is applied to the market value of $ 81 million, in 2021 will reach 195 million US dollars, the annual compound growth rate of 19% in 2020 UV LED light curing module penetration will come to 50 to 60% .
In UV- C LED part, Wu Ying Jie pointed out that the UV-C can be used in food preservation, air purification, water purification market, potential demand amazing. In the technology continues to progress under, LEDinside estimated 2016 UV-C LED sterilization and purification applications market value of $ 28 million (about 187 million yuan), in 2021 will reach 257 million US dollars (about 1.714 billion yuan) , the annual compound growth rate of 56%.
Wu Ying Jie representation, UV-C LED product technology threshold is very high, both in epitaxial, chip technology, packaging and market acceptance of so many challenges, so now the market UV-C LED products in addition to the main quartz glass packaging products, also launched with silicone encapsulation of cheap promotional version of its current, short life, only suitable for use in low-cost consumer products, as vendors promote marketing purposes.
As more LED manufacturers introduce new products later this year, will accelerate the UV-C LED Technology. UV-C LED stage the main plant for the United States, Japan, South Korean companies, are expected to include Nichia and China Taiwan LED manufacturers will be launched UV-C LED products in the fourth quarter.
