China Makers Start On COB LED Lighting

- Oct 27, 2016 -

While international vendors have dominated the market for COB (chip on board) high-power LED chip packages used in commercial, outdoor and special-purpose lighting, China-based competitors are entering the race by leveraging lower prices and large demand in the domestic market, according to industry sources.

Currently, leading makers in COB LED lighting are mainly Japan-based Citizen Electronics, Sharp and Nichia , and US-based Cree, Bridgelus and Lumileds Holding, the sources said. According to LED inside, global market value for COB LED lighting will increase from US$580 million in 2016 to over US$700 million in 2021.

Several China-based LED packaging service providers, including Ninbo Sunpu Led and Guangzhou LEDTEEN Optoelectronics, have been developing COB LED lighting based on EMC (epoxy molding compound) substrates, the sources indicated.
