DUBLIN, September 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gwcgrf/global_uv_led) has announced the addition of the "Global UV LED Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
An LED is a semiconductor device/light source that emits visible light or infrared light when an electric charge passes through it. LEDs are primarily used in indicator lamps and for other types of lighting such as that used in billboard signs, TV remotes, and brake lights of vehicles. Initially, LEDs would only emit a low-intensity red light.
Currently, however, LEDs are available across the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared wavelengths. They work on the principle of electroluminescence, wherein the color of illumination is determined by the energy band gap of the semiconductor. A UV LED displays an ultraviolet light; its wavelength is less than 400 nm. The compact nature and superior performance of UV LEDs is driving new and innovative applications including:
- Air purification
- Currency validation
- Dental curing and teeth whitening
- DNA gel
- Fluorescence disclosure and verification
- Water purification
- Medical phototherapy
The analysts forecast the Global UV LED market will grow at a CAGR of 43.51 percent over the period 2013-2018.
The Global UV LED market can be divided based on application into seven segments: Counterfeit Analysis, Optical Sensor and Instrumentation, Photocatalytic Air Purification, R&D, UV Curing, Water Purification, and Others.
The report, the Global UV LED Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the APAC region, Europe, North America, and the ROW; it also covers the Global UV LED market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
One of the major trends being witnessed in the market is the transition from UV lamps to UV LEDs. This rise in the UV LED adoption rate is because of its compact size, long lifespan, and its eco-friendly nature when compared with UV mercury lamps.
According to the report, one of the predominant drivers in this market is the increased adoption of UV LEDs in the Global UV Curing market. UV curing is being adopted at a high rate in multiple industries such as the Automotive, Telecommunications, Electronics, Graphic Arts, Metal, Glass, and Plastic Decorating industries.
Further, the report states that one of the key challenges faced by vendors in this market is the high cost of substrates. Substrates such as Aluminum Nitride (AIN) are scarce and very expensive. In addition, alternative substrates are not very effective; two-inch wafers are not widely available and are much more expensive than sapphire substrates.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
