LED

Lighting LEDs accounted for US$39 billion of the US$88 billion Chinese LED package industry in 2015, according to the 2016 Chinese LED Chip and Package Industry Market Report by LEDinside, a division of TrendForce Lighting LEDs’ share in the total scale of the Chinese LED package industry in 2015 also grew 15% year on year to reach 44% MLS and Honglitronic, the two major Chinese package suppliers, have steadily expanded their market shares in the LED lighting application due to booming demand in Southeast Asia, India and other emerging markets Consequently, their standings in the industry have gradually risen as well “Chinese lighting LED manufacturers are catching up with their international competitors in terms of technology and have become more competitive as a result,” said LEDinside analyst Allen Yu “Due to their cost advantages, the Chinese package suppliers have quickly made inroads into Southeast Asia, Africa and the emerging markets Some are also receiving orders from the larger international LED manufacturers In sum, increasing competitiveness and overseas expansion have continuously contributed to the revenue growth of the Chinese LED package industry in the recent period Lightning Opto’s lighting LED revenue grew over 40% annually in 2015 to become the third-largest Chinese supplier of the product MLS retained its top spot in the revenue ranking of Chinese lighting LED suppliers for 2015, registering only a slight year-on-year decline “MLS continues to expand its capacity and build channels to widen its lead over other suppliers, so its position in the ranking remains very secure in the short term,” noted Yu Honglitronic’s boosted its position in the package market with the acquisition of Smalite and climbed to second place in the domestic lighting LED revenue ranking for 2015 As the parent company, Honglitronic has ramped up product development for lighting LEDs and added several products to the lineup, including flip-chip LED and COB LED The subsidiary Smalite on the other hand focuses on its EMC LED business and capacity expansion Honglitronic will also rely on its other acquisition, the lead frame supplier Lianyou, to further lower the cost of package production On the whole, Honglitronic’s competitiveness is expected to improve significantly in the near future Lightning Opto is more advanced in its EMC LED technology compared with its domestic competitors and therefore has captured orders from many international LED suppliers Despite the market headwinds, Lightning Opto in 2015 posted an annual revenue growth of over 40% for its lighting LED business and captured the third spot in the ranking  Refond managed to maintain revenue growth for its lighting LED business during 2015, whereas its backlight LED business took a big hit in the same period Earlier this year, Refond attracted the industry’s attention by unveiling its first range of F-EMC LEDs These products are expected to become a new source of revenue growth in the lighting LED market during the year  MTC has been active in both lighting and backlight markets As MTC strengthens its position in the backlight market, the company also increases its production capacity for lighting LEDs and has won orders from international LED manufacturers Hence, its lighting LED revenue is expected to grow significantly this year NationStar has concentrated much of its efforts on developing packages for LED displays, but at the same time the supplier is just as committed in its lighting LED business NationStar’s share in China’s lighting LED revenue has seen steady annual growth

Revenue Ranking in China’s LED Package Market Last Year Shows Nichia Retained No. 1 Spot While Domestic Suppliers Achieved Impressive Results

2016/06/27

LED

China has become a major battleground for local and international LED package suppliers as the competition in the global LED market continues to intensify The 2016 Chinese LED Chip and Package Industry Market Report by LEDinside, a division of TrendForce, finds Nichia held on to its position as the revenue leader in the Chinese package market for 2015, while Lumileds rose to second place and MLS followed at third The top 10 LED package suppliers in the 2015 global revenue ranking generated a total of US$33 billion, down 15% from 2014 Together they controlled 38% of the Chinese package market, showing an annual decline of 8% The market last year was still fragmented among various players LEDinside analyst Allen Yu noted that international package companies represented five of the top 10 suppliers in China by revenue for last year Domestic package companies also showed their strength by taking three spots in this ranking Chinese suppliers were able to deliver impressive revenue results and wrest market shares away from their international suppliers by offering products with high-cost performance ratios and narrowing the technology gap with the international competitors It is expected that more suppliers in China’s top 10 ranking will be domestic in the future Nichia saw its revenue from China fell significantly last year on account of exchange rate fluctuations and changes in the company’s operations Nonetheless, Nichia remained as the revenue leader in China despite suffering notable loss in the local market share Lumileds climbed to the No 2 spot in the Chinese market ranking because the rapid growth in the general lighting and automotive lighting sectors boosted its revenue considerably Major domestic supplier MLS stayed at No 3 even as its market share in China dropped a little Taiwan-based Everlight expanded its presence in the Chinese market by developing different applications such as automotive lighting LEDs, fine-pitch display LEDs and flash LEDs Everlight was placed fourth in the 2015 Chinese market ranking OSRAM Opto followed at fifth as it also found success in the automotive lighting sector as well as in the infrared (IR) LED market NationStar jumped to the seventh place due to its efforts in the fine-pitch display LED market Honglitronic’s revenue expanded substantially after its acquisition of Smalite and became one of the top 10 suppliers in China for the first time last year, knocking Advanced Optoelectronic Technology (AOT) out of the ranking

Scale of Chinese LED Package Market to Expand by 5% Annually in 2016 as Demand Recovers, Says TrendForce

2016/06/15

LED

The scale of China’s LED package industry grew just 2% annually to US$88 billion in 2015, according to the 2016 Chinese LED Chip and Package Industry Report by LEDinside, a division of TrendForce The weak performance of the Chinese LED industry last year was mainly attributed to the global economic slowdown LEDinside analyst Allen Yu said the market is showing some signs of rebound this year as branded lighting vendors have been restocking their inventories, thereby generating demand and boosting the capacity utilization of LED chip suppliers Only a few chip suppliers have raised prices, but their efforts are enough to stop the general downtrend in the chip market Consequently, package prices will also remain stable in the short term As the industry enters its maturation phase, technological advances have lowered LED usage volumes for some applications and caused these markets to contract LEDinside projects the scale of the Chinese LED package industry to grow 5% annually in 2016 to US$93 billion The main growth driver for the Chinese package industry last year was the lighting sector However, lighting’s contribution to demand growth was smaller than anticipated due to the weak US and European economies Yu pointed out that the Chinese exports of LED lighting products slowed down dramatically from the annual growth rate of 60% in 2014 to 16% in 2015, when they reached US$164 billion in value The scale of China’s LED backlight market has contracted as technological improvements continue to reduce LED usage volume As for the Chinese LED display market, demand is growing for the fine-pitch LED display application, but this market is still too small to make a significant contribution to the overall demand As Chinese package suppliers increase their market shares, foreign competitors adopt strategies to differentiate themselves LED package suppliers saw their revenues being squeezed last year as LED lighting vendors, who were under immense competitive pressure, compelled them to cut prices as well China was the weakest region for foreign suppliers as their revenues from that market fell by 10% on average in 2015 Chinese suppliers, by contrast, posted annual revenue growth of 7% on average for the same year Chinese package companies increased their revenues against the market headwinds because they benefitted from the successes of their compatriot LED lighting vendors in Southeast Asia, India and other emerging markets Yu expects non-Chinese package suppliers to differentiate their products and develop new market segments as to avoid head-on price competition against the Chinese suppliers
