2013 is the tenth anniversary of China’s ” National Semiconductor Lighting Project” started. 10 years, China ‘s semiconductor lighting industry has become to grow stronger foundation for the development of the global lighting industry transformation and upgrading of change in one of the fastest developing area , with a .
“Start at home and abroad LED general lighting market is undoubtedly the 2013 LED lighting industry the most direct driving force to promote technological breakthroughs continue to reduce costs , LED lighting market to accelerate penetration , LED backlight market steady growth, innovative applications emerging .” National Semiconductor Lighting R & D and industry Alliance Secretary-General Wu Ling introduction, in 2013 China’s semiconductor lighting industry in terms of epitaxial silicon upstream , midstream or downstream packaging applications are significantly higher than the growth rate of 2012 levels , a substantial increase in exports ; while 2013 is also the year of competition , industry consolidation continued to deepen , industry structure adjustment and parallel product prices all the way down , stop the collapse of corporate capital expansion and symbiotic .
According to the latest survey data CSA Industrial Research Department , 2013 of the upstream epitaxial silicon semiconductor lighting industry output value reached 10.5 billion yuan , an increase of 31.5%. But as the years 2010-2011 investment MOCVD ( LED wafer production to make the necessary equipment ) leaving the production capacity continues to release increased by 61% , much larger than the output growth .
In the middle reaches of the packaging field , in 2013 the rise of China’s LED manufacturers , LED packaging industry reached 40.3 billion yuan , an increase of 26 % compared to 2012 ‘s 32 billion yuan . In addition to the performance in the value of output growth , packaging technology showing the healthy development of mature technologies , emerging technologies flourishing situation . COB package which eutectic EMC package, no gold packaging and other processes and technologies rapidly become a breakthrough to continue to reduce costs and improve reliability . In addition, the product specifications, due to demand-oriented applications , packaging companies from the past to the power line in turn increase the proportion of power devices .
In downstream applications , the overall size of China’s semiconductor lighting applications reached 206.8 billion yuan , although subject to the impact of falling prices , but is still the fastest growing semiconductor lighting industrial chain links , the overall growth rate of 36%. General lighting market which started in 2013, the rapid growth rate of 65% , the output value reached 69.6 billion yuan , accounting applications market share is 28% from the 2012 to 2013 of 34%.
In addition , LED lighting in the emerging field of automotive lighting , medical, agricultural and other applications also increased significantly. Driven by these applications , the growth rate of other emerging applications in addition to general lighting , backlighting, landscape lighting , display, for applications such as signal indicates more than 25% .
Semiconductor lighting export data are also exceptionally beautiful. CSA Industrial Research Department data show that in 2013 the export volume of China’s LED lighting to achieve compared to 2012 doubled to 410 million , exports accounted for about 50 % of total production ; export value also increased by 71 % compared to 2012 , reaching 5.5 billion dollars. Among them, the bulb accounting for nearly 48% of export volume , accounting for more than 15% of the spotlights .
