This is the ElectroniCast review and forecast of global market consumption of Driver Integrated Circuits (Ics) used for High-Brightness Light Emitting Diode (HB-LED) illumination. Values include LED Driver IC (packaged chip only); therefore, the Printed Circuit Board (PCB), circuit board enclosure and miscellaneous discrete components or functions are not included.
The light emitting diode (LED) market, despite exciting innovative devices driven by technological advances and ecological/energy-saving concerns, still face challenges in overcoming performance/price limitations and in attracting widespread consumption. The use of HB-LED Driver Ics in general lighting, as well as several other applications discussed in this report service, is increasing. For example, in the general lighting application, the increase in consumption is initially driven from government-based retrofitting projects - then to commercial/business - and eventually to the consumer-level.
High Brightness (HB) LEDs face the challenge of creating definitive positions in the illumination market, as competing lighting solutions are readily available and accepted. While this does not limit the potential success of HB-LEDs, it does create some challenges. High Brightness (HB) LEDs, defined by ElectroniCast for the purpose of this study as component-level bulbs (packaged LEDs) with a lumens/Watt rating of 30 lm/W and above.
The market review and forecast (2012-2019) data for HB-LED Driver Ics are segmented by the following functions:
The consumption value is determined by multiplying the number of HB-LED driver integrated circuits by the average selling price. The average selling prices are based on the price of the HB-LED driver integrated circuit at the initial factory level. The value is then based on the end-use application and the end-use region. LED driver Ics range from simple and lower cost linear regulators to advanced complex switching regulators configured in buck, boost, buck-boost, and SEPIC topologies. The consumption values are based on the end-user application and the end-user region .
The market data are segmented into the following geographic regions, plus a Global summary:
The global HB-LED Driver IC market is segmented into the following application categories and sub-applications:
Listed below are four levels (or "food chain") of HB-LED Driver Integrated Circuits. For the purposes of this study, we quantify and provide market forecasts for "Level 3"
Level 1 - The wafer Level 2 - The bare die Level 3 - The packaged LED Driver IC (chip) Level 4 - LED Driver IC mounted on PCB with external/discrete components
The assumed prices are the estimated or forecast average prices paid during the indicated calendar year. These are the original manufacturer's ("factory") prices invoiced to the first (original) customer (distributor, wholesale, retail, end-user, etc), or transfer prices for internal (captive) production.
Market Opportunity Analysis - Market Dynamics The study process by ElectroniCast Consultants take into account the following points:
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is a major Market Driver The use of HB-LED Driver Ics, which is driven by promised savings in maintenance/ labor, as well as "Green-Tech" (ecology-oriented) issues. For example: LED lamps are used in new construction, as well as retrofitting/replacement of existing (installed-based) lamps. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is a key marketing dynamic relative to LED Lamps, which typically have a premium price point versus other lighting solutions.
TCO, when incorporated in any financial benefit analysis, provides a cost basis for determining the economic value of an investment. Examples include: return on investment, internal rate of return, economic value added, return on information technology, and rapid economic justification. A TCO analysis includes total cost of acquisition and operating costs. A TCO analysis is used to gauge the viability of any capital investment. An enterprise may use it as a product/process comparison tool. Some of the key elements incorporated in the cost of ownership for LED lamps include:
Opportunity Costs are also in the TCO mix, since ElectroniCast takes into account that using LED (energy-efficient lighting and other carbon footprint/pollution issues) depicts the organization, which installs them, as a good corporate citizen; therefore, increased sales revenue may be a benefit, since customers may prefer to reward the "green-oriented" company by purchasing products fro the company.
According to ElectroniCast, the worldwide total consumption value of HB-LED Driver Ics reached nearly $1.8 billion in 2012. During the 2012-2019 timeline, we forecast that the consumption value will grow at an average annual rate of 27 percent to nearly $9.6 billion in the year 2019. Market forecast data in this study report refers to consumption (use) for a particular calendar year; therefore, this data is not cumulative data.
