Taiwan, China to See LED Chip Sector Consolidation

5.0 (1 Vote)

Due to increasingly intense competition, Taiwan-based LED chip makers are expected to be consolidated into 1-2 makers and so will China-based fellow makers, according to president Jou Ming-jiunn for Taiwan-based LED epitaxial wafer and chip maker Epistar.

In addition, only 5-6 LED chip makers will survive in the global market, Jou said.

While the LED backlighting market has reached saturation, demand for LED lighting is still growing, Jou said. But product prices have been falling, with LED light bulb pricing having dropped 40-50% so far in 2015, he indicated.

As international vendors are designing new LED lighting products for launch in March 2016, Epistar expects shipments of low- to mid-power LED chips and COB (chip on board) devices to significantly increase starting from December 2015 through February 2016, Jou said.

For LCD TV backlighting, Epistar expects demand for flip-chip LED devices based on CSP (chip-scale package) to increase in 2016, Jou noted.
