Recently, the State Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Commerce, General Administration of Customs, State Administration for Industry, the State Administration of Quality Supervision have jointly issued “on the progressive ban on the import and sale of general lighting incandescent notice,” the decision from October 1, 2012 since, according to the power of the size of a phased ban on the import and sale of common incandescent lighting.

China out of incandescent roadmap, November 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012 for the transition period, October 1, 2012 banned the import and sale of 100 watt incandescent lamp for general lighting and more. 5 years China will phase out incandescent light basically.

Difficult in rural marketing

The industry estimates, incandescent exit, but occupies about 40% of incandescent share of key distribution in the vast rural and urban fringe. These areas are still frequently used incandescent light. These consumers optimistic about the use of incandescent replacement is simple and convenient, and cheap.

Optoelectronics Technology Co., Ltd. Qingdao Carl Zhang Lianxin said on this site, if the phase-out incandescent and replace them with energy-saving lamps and LED lights, the price, there will be a gap. Incandescent lamp is currently led eight times, energy saving lamps (compact fluorescent) is 4,5 times the price of incandescent lamps.

Zhang Lianxin said that from the financial point of view, many rural consumers do not afford, as can be seen from the appliances to the countryside of rural purchasing power is still relatively strong. But still there must be awareness and acceptance process.

Currently, LED manufacturers have tried to make the standard interface LED light bulbs, easy to use. Home with 15-25 watt incandescent with a 3-watt LED light enough. With a 50-60 watt incandescent, for a 5-watt LED light enough. And the use of LED lights a few years without replacement, but the price remains high. More than 20 yuan price, consumers are still more difficult to accept.

Industry analysts, mandatory incandescent exit, now in the city to promote energy-saving lamps and LED tube lamps should be the time, but in rural marketing, more difficult. Encountered resistance is also relatively large.

Incandescent manufacturing enterprises are facing restructuring

National phase-out incandescent plan was announced, nearly ten thousand incandescent domestic producers from facing the issues of transition. Not transformation, it means to be eliminated.

Data show that in 2010 China’s domestic incandescent lamp production and sales were 3.85 billion and 1.07 billion. Ranked first in the world.

At present, the output of energy saving lamps and incandescent than the increase from 1996 to 2010 of 1:34 to 1:1, energy-saving lamps from the 1996 global market share of 20% to 85% in 2010.

At present, the traditional lighting industry, many lighting manufacturers also produce energy-saving production of incandescent lamps, these companies still have some living space. Future demand for energy-saving lamps are still very high. If only the production of incandescent lamps, not high tech, they could face being eliminated.

It is understood that the principle is the use of incandescent light-emitting objects to achieve the principle of thermal radiation, electro-optical conversion efficiency of incandescent less than 10%; the progress of energy-saving lamps are incandescent, energy saving light-emitting principle is ultraviolet excited phosphors for wall light, the light efficiency is five times ordinary light bulb, but in the manufacturing and consumption processes are pollution; LED lights are solid state semiconductor light-emitting no pollution. LED light-optical conversion efficiency of 90-92%, which is nine times the incandescent lamp. Lighting will be the future development of the industry in one direction, was seen as a sunrise industry, but the current price is high.

Energy-saving incandescent lamp manufacturer products will transition. However, the possibility of turning LED products is relatively small.

Optoelectronics Technology Co., Ltd. Qingdao Carl Zhang Lianxin said on this site, LED lighting manufacturers more professional. Relatively high technology content. According to statistics, LED industry chain enterprises only thousands, but do not have lighting. LED lighting manufacturer of high-end less present in the country’s market share is relatively small.


At present, out of incandescent light, promoting the use of energy-saving lamps and LED lamps in the process, as a transitional period, the state advocate the use of energy-saving lamps. With energy-saving lamps as a transition. At present, such as large office buildings, government buildings, street lights, public lighting venues, most of the use of energy-saving lamps. Because the current relatively high price of LED tube lights, high manufacturing costs.

Zhang Lianxin said that the current high-volume use of LED lighting, there are real estate companies, such as engaging in underground parking, use of LED tube lights can save energy 70%, 70% of the electricity savings. There are new shopping centers, but also willing to use energy-saving LED tube lights, decoration began to order LED, in one step. This lamp is generally life is 3-5 years. Do not consider maintenance problems. Qingdao is currently specializing in optical Carl LED lighting.

Data shows that 20% of world electricity consumption for lighting, of which 40% of the electricity is consumed the old-fashioned incandescent bulbs. If the total phase-out incandescent will save a huge amount of power resources.
