LED (light emitting diode) market in recent years is developing rapidly, not only in traditional back lighting, display application field, on illume is also showing is almost BaoFaShi momentum of growth and drive IC is LED application in an important part of this undoubtedly contributed to the relevant market demand.
Because of the wide range of application, technical high maturity, backlit now is still the largest LED application on the market, driving demand for the largest. Cell phone small portable devices, the white led strips has been to grow rapidly. And as a decline in the cost of. LED in TV larger size display will also gradually replace CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent tubes), become the mainstream of the model. So the market by LEDdriver (driver) natural manufacturer of all the attention.
Wholesale led strip are the industry to try the hottest. But in addition to have a mature landscape lighting, traffic lights outside market, general lighting market is considered to be a future market. This is due to the development of the general illumination LED is used for a short time, technology has not yet been fully matured, widely considered to be a higher cost, and service life and energy saving effect also without long-term test. But now come to. LEDdriver manufacturers don’t seem to think much of this, the drive is already highlighting their main product line, from promoting offence, no more than any other product line to the intensity of the weak, or even stronger.
Drive IC manufacturers are constantly develop new technology and products to solve difficult problems of lighting, new products constantly emerging market, such as the launch of the NS off-line constant current control drive, nasion beautiful super capacitor flash drives, etc. The emergence of new technology can not only solve the technical problems, also in lowering the cost of the product. Lighting applications have now become numerous manufacturers in the direction of the research and development of strategic driver.
Owing to the industry to drive the market LED all good prospect, we have added new 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.
In addition to worldwide IC manufacturers, China and Taiwan and mainland firms also become LEDdriver important supplier. Especially Taiwan manufacturers started more early, and Taiwan is notebook computers related products production base, have local advantages, and a large number of companies are already on the market form certain influence, such as sticking to, and made 锜, MAO, newsletter die, etc. They also are betting on the mainland market, and actively promote to mainland China. And mainland firms likewise not in the local LEDdriver minority, such as ShiLan micro, huge silicon micro etc, and the rapid increase in the number, they also have extensive LED drive solutions, from back lighting to lighting have involved. And, of course, is currently in the technical level, the domestic manufacturers and international companies are still some gap than in some high-end application on less competitive, but we see, their LEDdriver technology to enhance the ability very quickly, and also good at holding the market opportunities, are from type to follow up the lead change of the role of type. Industry experts think. Brand influence weak is local manufacturer problems to be solved.
Supply team continues to expand, the natural LEDdriver present 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.
However, at the same time we also observed an exciting phenomenon. The market is present 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.
But for general illumination of market development, it is needed to foster the manufacturer together, in the more manufacturers, wireless led strip light related to the more a day earlier mature, cost to drop quickly, so as to become the biggest real application market LED.
