The European Commission forecasts the intelligent lighting systems will make a significant impact on lighting market especially the LED lighting market including the outdoor LED flood light. More and more lighting companies are entering the LED lighting market , resulting in the consolidation of he lighting industry. Customized solutions will become a growth opportunity to the lighting industry .
Although Europe has Philips and Osram which are two companies and the world’s leading LED lighting manufacturers, the development of solid-state lighting particularly the LED lighting such as outdoor LED flood light is still relatively slow. The Commission believes that the outdoor LED flood light and other solid-state lighting in other countries, especially China , Korea and Japan are rapidly developing thanks to the government ‘s strong support and the national strategy .
McKinsey & Company, a new report shows that the global lighting market size is about 52 billion euros in 2010 , of which Europe accounted for nearly 30 % share. By 2020 , the global lighting market will reach 88 billion euros , and then as the share of developing countries is rising, Europe will account for only 25%.
The Commission said that Europe must address the barriers currently affecting the development of outdoor LED flood light and other solid-state lighting to help the European lighting industry to stay ahead of global competitiveness.
The Commission acknowledged that although the European lighting industry had 150,000 employees, but the LED chip production is very limited. Philips Lumileds is a subsidiary of a major LED chip manufacturer, but Lumileds mainly produce LED chips in San Jose , California and Asia. Therefore , a subsidiary of OSRAM Opto Semiconductors became the only European one production leading manufacturer of LED chips .
Osram and Philips Lighting is the main representative of the European technology and industry influence , but other countries and companies outside Europe is rapidly advancing the development of LED light such as outdoor LED flood light and other solid-state lighting , etc. , which make Europe fear being left behind. the Japanese electronics giant Sharp ‘s “Mega Zeni” LED module provides up to 100 lumens / watt white light effect , which is for indoor and outdoor LED flood light and other outdoor lighting applications .Browsing http://www.lead-lighting.com/products/sid53-1.htm for more information about the outdoor LED flood light.
