DUBLIN, February 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/58mxdn/uv_led_key) has announced the addition of the "UV LED - Key Patent Analysis and Market Forecast (2012-2018)" report to their offering.
This report is intended to provide in-depth analysis of UV LED patents which has been receiving growing interest in the LED industry.
The research covers the market forecast for 2012-2018 to provide a comprehensive overview of the UV LED industry, the related companies and the research institutes in the two aspects- markets and patents.
As UV lamps are rapidly replacing mercury with the help of high efficiency and high output, a lot of efforts to use them in various applications are being made. This is because UV LEDs using UV light sources have more advantages than existing Hg lamps.
With these advantages, UV LED products are expected to replace existing mercury UV lamps rapidly. In fact, UV LEDs have already started to replace mercury-vapor lamps in many applications as UV curing and counterfeit detection. In addition, there are on-going efforts to apply the UV LED technology to the fields of agriculture and medicine and some products are being deployed at initial prototype stage.
In this sense, UV LEDs are expected to show rapid growth in the UV lamp market. The share of UV LEDs is expected to grow from 11% ($53M) in 2012 to 62 %($521M) in 2018.
Nevertheless, UV LED light sources are facing many technical challenges. Using AlN-based materials, for instance, makes it difficult to fabricate high-quality thin-film, and lack of skilled labor and resources in UV LED device fabrication and packaging causes low light outputs. As a lot of companies have recently participated in the UV LED industry, technology development will be further matured.
The data used in this report extracted from patents filed in Korea, the United States, Japan and Europe until June, 2013. From this, of 3,563 patents, 1,326 valid patents were extracted. These patent data are to be a good help to attain prior art data or related problems, technological progress, and other useful information for exploring novel ideas and solutions for possible problems. It can also serve as a useful tool to prevent or prepare future patent disputes in advance through investigation of third-party patent rights.
This report is also expected to be a great help to examine the patent trends and relevant key patents in the field of UV LEDs.
