Forecast: The high-end commercial lighting market trends of 2018
With the continuous improvement of the efficiency of LED products, besides with the color tolerance (SDCM) control ability and color rendering improved, LED manufacturers to begin to interest in the high-end commercial lighting market demand.
At the same time, LED heat sink manufacturers are aware of market factors in addition to product prices, but also noticed that although the demand for high-end products market is no different than alternative light sources, but it is quite popular in the new market, and because of this, despite the order is small, the product profit compared with the general alternative light source is able to maintain stability.
As for the lighting OEMS in Asia, the European lighting manufacturers demand Asian manufacturers for cost reasons. For Asian lighting manufacturers, they can accumulate product design strengths from foundry experience, actively promote their own brand and expand their business range.
The improvement of the light quality become the biggest topic
From the regional to see the quality of light and product luminous efficiency, with the popularity of LED, the entire light-emitting efficiency has reached 100lm/W. Cost-effective gradually increased and penetration rate is also accelerate increased, with the improvement of consumer lever, to improve the quality of light has become the biggest topic in the market.
First about the color rendering index, color temperature and luminous efficiency of LED does have a shift in the relationship, but the light quality in addition to the color rendering index and color temperature, as well as color consistency, stability, color drift are very important aspects, and these have no special relationship with the luminous efficiency. How to achieve a balance between luminous efficiency and light quality, make LED lighting applications a better performance, and create a more comfortable light environment, which has become the new LED lighting point of consideration.
LED lighting package color temperature distribution trend
According to the survey, the color temperature distribution of global LED lighting used in the light source of 2016, the cold white share the largest of 60%, white and warm white share with 15% and 25%, with the gradually increase demands about the color rendering index of the light quality. In the next few years, the proportion of white and warm white LED light source will also gradually increase. By 2020, estimated there will be share 17% and 27%, while the color white temperature will be reduced to 56%.
The main types of high-end commercial lighting COB light conditions
According to the survey, the most widely used downlights and track lights in the global high-end commercial lighting market in 2016, about 40% and 75% adopt COB light sources (as by the PCS of lamps to count, mainly power is lower by 30W of COB), after that there will be increased by 11% and 6%, by 2020, high-end commercial downlight and track lights use COB light source will reach 60% and 90%.(Some data come from the third-party channel)
