The latest report from LEDinside, a division of TrendForce, finds that LED chip suppliers raised their prices in August, slowing down the price decline for end products Thus, prices of LED light bulbs will be on a stable trend in the short term  “Compared with July, the global average sales price (ASP) of 40-watt equivalent LED light bulbs fell just 04% in August to US$94,” said LEDinside analyst Allen Yu “The global ASP of 60-watt equivalent LED light bulbs also dropped 03% to US$128” Increase in LED chip prices propped up package prices In China’s LED package market, prices of 2835 LEDs halted their slide in August As prices of LED chips for standard packages were the first to go up, price increase is expected for standard and mid-power 2835 LEDs in the short term Conversely, prices of mid-power 5630 LEDs fell in August because some international suppliers, including those based in the US and South Korea, lowered their prices for these products As for EMC 3030 LEDs, their prices on a steady slide in August on account of oversupply and increasing market competition “The price increase in standard LED chips during August will have a stabilizing effect on prices of chips used in other packages in the short term,” said Yu “Hence, most package prices in China are going to remain constant even as package suppliers have lowered prices for a few products” LED light bulb prices stayed constant in August corresponding to the situation in upstream In August, the ASP of 40-watt LED light bulbs fell 2% monthly in the UK, representing the largest drop in the world market Prices of some products in the UK showed steeper declines due to promotional activities For instance, prices of 8-watt 470-lumen LED light bulbs from Philips Lighting fell by 162% on average in August versus the prior month In Germany, the ASP of 40-watt equivalent LED light bulbs fell 11% monthly as just a few products saw modest price decline In China, the ASP fell 08% monthly because hardly any vendors cut prices to promote their products during August Foshan Lighting lowered the price of its 7-watt 500-lumen light bulbs to US$281, down 12% from July ASPs of 40-watt equivalent LED light bulbs in other regional markets remained steady in August Likewise, prices of 60-watt equivalent LED light bulbs in August were about the same as in July The US and the UK saw slightly larger monthly declines at 24% and 22%, respectively In the US, products that were on promotion include GE Lighting’s 11-watt 800-lumen LED light bulb, which fell 16% from July to US$653 As for the UK, promoted products include Philips Lighting’s 95-watt 806-lumen LED light bulb, which arrived at US$888, down 23% monthly Other regional markets were showing stable prices

Seasonality Kept Prices of LED Light Bulbs on a Downtrend in July, TrendForce Reports

2016/08/09

LED

LEDinside, a division of TrendForce, reports the global average sales prices of 40-watt and 60-watt equivalent LED light bulbs in July fell 07% and 06% versus the prior month, respectively, to US$95 and US$129 “July was the start of the traditional off season for the LED industry,” said LEDinside analyst Allen Yu “Furthermore, the economic conditions in Europe and the US remained weak, so the demand rebound that occurred in the lighting market was limited to just the second quarter Retail prices of LED light bulbs slid entering the third quarter, and some products suffered larger price drops on account of promotional activities” Prices of LED packages in China are close to product costs; demand for high-power 3030 LEDs gradually picks up In China, prices of 2835 LEDs and high-power 3030 LEDs were generally stable through July, while international suppliers lowered prices on mid-power 5630 LEDs “By package type, 2835 LEDs are currently the most in demand in the lighting market, and their prices have been falling since they became the market mainstream in 2013,” said Yu “At this point, prices of 2835 LEDs are near product costs, so the decline is also starting to moderate” On another note, high-power 3030 LEDs are seeing rising demand in the outdoor lighting market and can potentially become standard products similar to 2835 LEDs Hence, LEDinside expects the number of suppliers for high-power 3030 LEDs to increase, ratcheting up competition and driving down prices
