Industry heads, vice president upbeat about '13 prospects for LED industry

Author : Adam Tyrsett Kuo Date : 4/8/2013 1:57:33 AM

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The LED industry will return to normal this year after two years of turbulence, Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd. Chairman Y.F. Yeh said yesterday.

His sentiments were echoed by Epistar Corporation Chairman Lee Biing-jye, who forecast that demand for lighting products will see a rapid increase this year.

Yeh and Lee made the comments at the opening ceremony of this year's Taiwan International Lighting Show held at the Taipei World Trade Center Exhibition Hall.

The opening ceremony was also attended by Vice President Wu Den-yih and Taiwan External Trade Development Council Chairman Wang Chih-kang.

This year's trade show features 333 firms and 786 booths, setting a new record.

Wu said that energy conservation and carbon reduction are issues which nations around the world are all concerned about, and that the LED industry is “only just beginning” and has yet “to reach its apex.”

To ensure consumer rights, the Industrial Technology Research Institute also released its LED LightMeter yesterday.

China Subsidy Decrease to Rebalance Industry: Yeh

This year's LED industry is in a different place compared to last year, Yeh said, adding that over the past two years, mainland China has been heavily subsidizing Metalorganic Chemical Vapour Deposition (MOCVD) reactors, leading to an oversupply, which threw the industry off balance.

However, Yeh said, the mainland government has cut back on its subsidies, allowing competition to return to normal. He added that he feels especially optimistic about the competitive edge of Taiwanese firms.

Taiwanese manufacturers are able to manufacture products with better cost advantages despite steadily decreasing retail prices, the chairman said. Yeh said he expects his firm to see growth in the first half of this year.

Shipments May Double This Year: Lee

With regard to Epistar's massive loss in the last quarter of 2012, Lee said that fourth quarters are traditionally the offseason of the industry, with firms tending to ship out testing units in small quantities. This, combined with falling prices, leads to less than satisfactory earnings, Lee said.

This year has shown strong signs of growth in demand, and shipments are expected to double in scale, easing the pressure of dropping prices, according to Lee.

He added that price decreases will be more moderate this year, falling between 15 and 20 percent.

Ministry to Replace All Street Lights with LEDs: VP

In addition to traffic lights, the Ministry of Economic Affairs plans to replace the country's 326,000 street lights with LEDs within three years, Wu said.

Taiwan has a solid 30-year foundation in optoelectronics and a strong ICT background, giving itself an edge in the lighting industry in terms of development, design, production and marketing, he said.
