LED Phosphors

NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

LED Phosphors

LED PHOSPHOR MARKET TO MORE THAN DOUBLE IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS

At the dawn of the HB LED industry in the early 2000's, the bulk of the LED phosphor industry was under the control of the major LED players that held key IP in the various domains, and selectively granted licenses and cross-licenses. The landscape changed in the mid 2000's with the emergence of phosphors that were "IP-free" credible alternatives to YAG and TAG, commercialized on the open market by independent phosphor manufacturers unaffiliated with LED manufacturers.

This report provides a detailed list of more than 50 companies that are involved in LED phosphor manufacturing. More than 20 of them are located in China, where we're observing the emergence of vendors with improving quality and potentially credible IP to satisfy the tier-one Chinese LED makers that have world class ambitions and who favor IP and performance vs. price.

Overall, we expect the phosphor market to grow significantly during the next five years, and potentially pass the $1 billion mark by the end of this period. However, a significant fraction of this market will remain captive. This report provides average selling price trends and detailed forecasts by phosphor type and composition.

TECHNOLOGY IS STILL A KEY OPPORTUNITY FOR DIFFERENTIATION IN ORDER TO INCREASE PERFORMANCE AND DESIGN IN THE FACE OF A STRONG AND LIMITING IP

The combination of YAG phosphor + blue LED remains the solution of choice for applications where high CRI and warm color temperature are not required, but Nichia's strong IP limits access to YAG to selected partners and major LED manufacturers that have been able to negotiate cross-license agreements thanks to their own strong IP position. While still not on an equal footing with YAG in terms of performance, Silicates have improved significantly and are closing the gap. However, as Nichia's critical IP is set to expire in the next few years, an increasing number of phosphor manufacturers are offering YAG compositions as well.
