2. Chinese LED lamps (HS: 94054090) exports

With governments around the world vigorously supporting and promoting its production and sales, the LED lighting industry witnessed a rapid development in 2011. The global annual demand of lighting sets has reached 12 billion, becoming the largest consumption of electric products. The unexpected rise in the price of Phosphor bizarre has led to the increase in the cost of fluorescent lamps; meanwhile, the manufacturing technology of LED lights has made substantial progress, which in turn has reduced the cost rapidly. During the end of 2011 and early 2012, Q2 witnessed an estimated drop of up to 30-50%. Besides, the problem of nuclear power in Japan after the earthquake has created an increased demand for LED lamps in the post-earthquake reconstruction.

4. LED Lighting Industry in Emerging Markets Analysis (Japan)

Affected by the 311 earthquake, there has been a surge in demand for LED lamps in Japan. LED light bulb sales in Japan in December 2011 rocketed up by 63 percent compared to the same month in 2010, and in the case of ceiling lights number was up 58% over the same month of previous year.

During the Fourth Next-generation Lighting Technology Exhibition organized by Reed Exhibitions Japan (Lighting Japan), Toshiba director and LED Business Minister Koji Sato said the original estimate of Japan LED light bulb market size was about 22 million lights, but the 311 earthquake had accelerated the popularization of LED lighting, LED bulbs sales in the last year was up to 31 million, with an increase of more than 40%. In 2011, the monthly sales of Toshiba LED bulbs rose from 2.8 million in June, to 4.8 million in December, and the annual growth rate had as much as three-fold.

Japanese retail research firm GfK Japan revealed the sales data of 4,000 home appliance hypermarkets, which indicated that in December 2011, Japan LED light bulb sales rocketed up by 63% compared to the same month in 2010, accounting for 37% of the whole bulb sales, a new record since July 2010.
