This is the The Company review and forecast of global market consumption of Driver Integrated Circuits (ICs) used for High-Brightness Light Emitting Diode (HB-LED) illumination. Values include LED Driver IC (packaged chip only); therefore, the Printed Circuit Board (PCB), circuit board enclosure and miscellaneous discrete components or functions are not included.
The light emitting diode (LED) market, despite exciting innovative devices driven by technological advances and ecological/energy-saving concerns, still face challenges in overcoming performance/price limitations and in attracting widespread consumption. The use of LEDs in general lighting, as well as several other applications discussed in this report service, is increasing. For example, in the general lighting application, the increase in consumption is initially driven from government-based retrofitting projects - then to commercial/business - and eventually to the consumer-level.
High Brightness (HB) LEDs face the challenge of creating definitive positions in the illumination market, as competing lighting solutions are readily available and accepted. While this does not limit the potential success of HB-LEDs, it does create some challenges. High Brightness (HB) LEDs, defined by The Company for the purpose of this study as component-level bulbs (packaged LEDs) with a lumens/Watt rating of 30 lm/W and above.
The lumen (lm) is the unit of luminous flux, equal to the amount of light given out through a solid angle by a source of 1-candela intensity radiating equally in all directions (or the measure of the power of light perceived by the human eye). The watt (W) is a derived unit of power, measuring the rate of energy conversion. While Watt is however a physical unit, lumen is a physiological size.
The market review and forecast (2010-2017) data for HB-LED Driver ICs are segmented by the following functions:
Consumption Value (US$, million)
Average Selling Prices (ASP $, each)
The consumption value is determined by multiplying the number of HB-LED driver integrated circuits by the average selling price. The average selling prices are based on the price of the HB-LED driver integrated circuit at the initial factory level. The value is then based on the end-use application and the end-use region. LED driver ICs range from simple and lower cost linear regulators to advanced complex switching regulators configured in buck, boost, buck-boost, and SEPIC topologies. The consumption values are based on the end-user application and the end-user region.
