LED market updates

January 8, 2013

Diodes Inc (who already own Zetex in UK) acquired Power Analog Microelectronics in 2012.

Iconic furniture retailer IKEA will sell only LED bulbs and LED lamps by 2016, and will change more than a million of its own store lights to LED and other more energy-efficient lighting.

The total market for flexible displays is expected to reach USD 3.3 billion by 2017, a CAGR of 45.1% over the next five years, with shipments surging to 223 million units.

Solvay’s new “Lavanta” 5115 WH 011 high-performance polyester line of liquid-crystal polymers, is a 15% glass fiber-reinforced injection molding compound developed specifically for LED electronic packaging applications that utilize surface mount technology. It has high reflectivity (>95%) with excellent whiteness retention even after thermal and light aging, translating to better reliability for LEDs that operate at high junction temperatures — e.g. filling very thin-walled sections required for low-profile, side-view LEDs. It also offers dimensional stability due to its low moisture absorption and exceptional weld line strength, according to the company.
