In the global energy shortage and environmental requirements of continuous improvement of background, in every country in the world to develop green energy-saving lighting. led fluorescent lamp as a revolutionary energy-saving lighting technology, is developing rapidly. However, LED drive power supply requirements are constantly improved. High efficiency, high power factor, the security separation, accord with EMI standard, high current control accuracy, high reliability, small volume, low cost is becoming the key driving power LED evaluation index.
According to the research found that both in the next year, TV and the MONITOR NB LED drive IC market scale, will increase by 14% or more, the data inspired LED drive IC factory, have good growth next year after potential, from some IC manufacturers have been announced earnings to see, also can peep to know LED drive IC market growth speed, and energy conservation and emission reduction lasts hot topic, LED drive IC market next year will enter a new the warring states period. PWM integrated technology. LED indoor lighting and high brightness LED lamp, will be LED drive IC future technology development trend of critical.
Foreign control China drive market need to strengthen local enterprise independent production
In the global economy and electronic industry subsidence of recession, China led fluorescent lamp replacement in 2009 rose by only 1%, but in 2010, will accelerate growth to 9.6%, and the scale will reach $127.7 million. In 2013 LED the market is expected to China will reach $139 million. The Chinese government takes measures to stimulate domestic demand, and encourages enterprises to LED industry investment, is pushing for domestic LED drive sales growth.
Chinese foreign now control LED drive IC market, especially Texas instruments, national semiconductor and bullying, and the other American enterprise. These suppliers for different markets, each market have their own unique requirements, including cell phones, portable consumer electronic products, automobile, mark/large screen, traffic light and general illumination. Another Taiwan LED manufacturer also is more active.
In the 2008 years ago, China only a few local semiconductor manufacturers focussed on LED drive market. Nevertheless,, from the start, because China takes measures in developing the domestic supply to meet LED lighting and other cities project requirement, more and more domestic enterprises begin to enter LED drive market. However,, the new LED the market to drive these manufacturers is not the most factory. Begin from 2008, has more than 40 no factory IC company in the development of LED drive IC, but I believe that, with the application of the market LED drive is expanding constantly, almost all focus on power management IC market of the manufacturers will be in the next two years to release their own LED drive IC products. At present foreign company LED drive IC in compression is taking a lead. Local IC still need to work harder.
LED drive suppliers increased market began to differentiation
Due to the industry to drive the led fluorescent lamps all good prospect, we have added different manufacturers. It is not difficult to find that, whether NS, NXP, ST, nasion beauty these giant, or small and medium-sized enterprise in the field of professional IC, almost all of the product line of power supply company in pushing LEDdriver, product line from low power to power everything. Due to the small and medium size LED application in panel (cell phone and NB) gradually expands the size of the panel, so panel drive IC factory likewise cut into the positive, including the United Chorale, wonders, xi glory. Along with the growth of the products LED drive and gradually mature, the breakdown of the industry is an inevitable tendency.
Supply team continues to expand, the natural LEDdriver contemporary situation of flowers, but also brought the fierce market competition. Especially in the consumer market for cost sensitive, such as cell phones, laptops back lighting, driving the price war has led to opening again. So, to focus on these market makers, how to improve the product price is crucial. Nonetheless, at the same time, we also observed an exciting phenomenon. The market is presently differentiation trend. Along with the development of application LED, drive manufacturers in different LED application concerns, such as in many manufacturers are aiming for high power large current application, some firms also focused on the small current drive applications, such as automobile tail light, decorative lighting, working light, counter, lighting segments of the market. This is a good trend, more attention to segment the market, show that firms in mining and cultivate more innovative niche market, this undoubtedly than everyone in a field spell a life-and-death to solve.
