The Global Lighting LED Packaging Market Slide Into Slump on Account of Lethargic Chip Market and Weak End Product Demand, Says TrendForce

2019/09/26

LED

According to the latest LEDinside Gold Member Report from TrendForce, the global lighting LED package market value is expected to continue to decline due to the global economic recession and the decrease in the unit price of the lighting LED package products The market value will reach US$63 billion in 2023 The CAGR stands at -3% throughout the forecast period, 2018-2023 “Due to the large-scale popularization of MOCVD equipment made in China and the subsidies from local governments in China, the new capacity continues to be invested in LED chips in China, turning the prices of LED chips into a vicious competition The LED lighting chip market, in particular, is almost impossible to make a profit for the manufacturers” says Terri Wang, TrendForce Analyst Additionally, regarding the macro-economic environment, the negotiations of the US-China trade war is not going as smoothly as expected, with the 25% tariff becoming a fait accompli LED bulbs are also on the tariff list, which may cause a decline in the volume of Chinese lighting products exported to the US The most affected parties are lighting exporters and OEMs of some multinational lighting companies that rely on the US market Although some orders have been shifted to Southeast Asia such as Vietnam and Thailand, their industry chain is not complete, and the overall production costs are higher than in China Hence, it is difficult for them to integrate the production capacity from China into its local industrial chain in the short-term Thus, the increase of luminaire and lighting product importing costs in the US market has led to a decline in market demand growth Because the US market is the world’s biggest demand market for lighting products, the overall strength for lighting industry growth has been affected directly Packaging manufacturers strive to reduce costs as high-voltage LED solutions is popularized The average price of lighting LED package products keeps on falling in the Q3 of 2019 while suffering the onslaught of the stagnation of the upstream market and a lackluster demand of the end products The extent of the decline is about 1%-6% The mid-power 2835 product prices dropped by 6% and 5% for 02W and 05W products, respectively, which shows a more visible decline TrendForce has also observed that the manufacturer brands of lighting products continue to streamline costs, which makes the package manufacturers’ need to reduce the cost of the materials even more pressing As a result, high-voltage LED solutions that reduce drive power costs are increasingly accessible Their applications are also expanding Nowadays the high-voltage LED solution mainly adopts 9V (100mA) ~ 18V (50mA) to reduce the cost of the capacitor components in the power supply by reducing the current Meanwhile, the rise of this technical solution has replaced the market position of the original medium and low power LEDs It is expected that the LED usage volume in lighting products will be reduced

Suppliers ' Profits Cut Back, with Lighting LED Package Prices Slowing in Decline, Says TrendForce

2019/07/18

LED

According to the latest 2019 Chinese LED Chip and Package Industry Market by LEDinside, a division of TrendForce, growth in the global LED lighting market has slowed down noticeably due to the global economic recession and the US- China trade dispute Revenues for lighting LED packages were affected as a result In 2018, China's LED packaging market scale for general lighting applications stood at US$52 billion, with a visible slowdown glanced from a CAGR of only 3% throughout the forecast period, 2018-2023 “Due to the limited decline experienced by LED chip prices of top-tier brands, as well as the already-narrow profit potential in LED packaging, we see many packaging suppliers unable to shrink costs, unwilling to gain market share by pricing below the competition , and simultaneously reducing operation ratio to ease inventory pressure Thus price fluctuations in China's packaging market overall were small in June, but prices for some high- and mid-power LED package products dropped slightly The average price decline for high-power products in June was 1% As for mid-power products, price changes were mainly seen in 5630 LEDs, with the 05W and 02W models dropping by 05% and 24%, respectively,” says TrendForce Analyst Terri Wang Lighting LED Packaging Hardly Profitable; Suppliers Actively Turning to the Mini LED Display Market Looking at profitability, we see suppliers' profit margins dropping noticeably in the LED chip industry since 3Q18 until now If subsidies from the Chinese government are deducted, most LED chip companies are already in the red and hence unwilling to lower prices any further Profitability of global LED packaging suppliers are on the decline, although the extent of that decline isn't as disastrous as that of chip suppliers, yet profit potential is narrowing all the same From the latest financial data revealed by China's packaging companies, the average profit margin lies between 20% and 25%, with profit margins in lighting LED packaging long being stuck at a lower 10-15% range, which shows that profit potential of lighting LED market is lower than that of the industry's average Therefore for most packaging suppliers, lighting LED is no longer a main contributor to profits, and since the market scale isn't growing as fast as it used to, low pricing strategies aren't that effective at bringing in orders anymore, as competitors will also follow suit to keep their share of the market Most suppliers are instead more willing to start new areas of business The mini LED display market, for example, is already seeing opportunistic entrants such as Hongli Zhihui and Shenzhen MTC
