LED Taiwan will be held at TWTC Nangang Exhibition Hall in Taipei on April 13-16. As the LED market stabilizes, companies in the industry continue to invest in technology R&D as part of their efforts to stand out amid a pricing war of end products. In line with current key issues in the industry, this year’s LED Taiwan will feature five theme pavilions, several industry forums and the TechSTAGE. The Taiwan International Lighting Show (TiLS) will be co-located; with 700 booths, the exhibitions and conferences expect to attract over 20,000 visitors.
Research firm LEDinside estimated that the value of the global high-brightness LED market will increase three percent year-over-year in 2016. Despite the modest outlook, prospects still look good for niche applications in IR LED or UV LED, and may even become the main growth driver in the market. In LED lighting, the market reached US$25.7 billion of revenue in 2015 with a penetration rate at 31 percent. The numbers are expected to increase to $30.5 billion and 36 percent, respectively, in 2016.
LED Taiwan is made possible with collaboration and resources from SEMI, TAITRA, the Taiwan Lighting Fixture Export Association and the Taiwan Optoelectronic Semiconductor Industry Association. Each year, foreign buyers and leading manufacturers are invited to the exposition where various business matching events, forums and meetings are arranged to help Taiwan vendors expand connections and secure business opportunities by interacting with the elite members of foreign industrial and academic circles.
In addition to the existing pavilions (High-Brightness LED and Sapphire), LED Taiwan 2016 expands three more pavilions (LED Components, Smart Lighting Technology and Power Devices) and also invited international leading companies: Aurora Optoelectronics, Cree, Epileds, Epistar, Lextar, MLS, and Rubicon to demonstrate on show floor to help visitors explore the latest moves and trends in the market to increase their global competitiveness.
To enable innovation and bring more energy to the local LED industry, TechSTAGE will be held as part of this year’s LED Taiwan event, showcasing the Taiwan LED R&D capability in the areas of LED Manufacturing Equipment & Materials, Power Device Technology, Sapphire Processing Technology & Application, LED Advanced Technologies, and Smart Lighting & Automobile Lighting.
