LEDs took center stage at this year’s Photonics Festival in Taiwan 2011. Taiwanese LED makers Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd., Epistar Corporation, and Lite-On Technology Corporation all indicated that LEDs are replacing traditional lighting at a faster-than-expected rate.
Does this mean an impending lighting revolution? It appears Delta Electronics, Inc. certainly thinks so. The company has indicated that the price of LED light bulb is nearing the sweet spot. It is expected that the price of a 60 watt equivalent LED light bulb will soon be halved to USD$10.
Taiwanese LED makers tend to focus on vertical integration, and as a result they tend to be better received by buyers. Delta Electronics is expecting further room for growth in LED orders this year.
This year’s quake in Japan has evoked the world’s awareness of nuclear safety, and energy conservation had become a key agenda. Many of the world’s governments see the benefits of saving up to 80% energy by using LED lighting. It has been estimated if Taiwan replaced all of its lighting with LED then it could save as much power as 1.5 nuclear power plants.
