The Minamata Convention takes effect: LED lighting is increasing. UV LED is taking off.
2019-04-29

The Minamata Convention on Mercury, signed by more than 90 countries around the world, came into effect in August 2017. The treaty bans the production and import and export of various products containing “mercury” from 2020 onwards. Since the energy-saving bulb contains mercury, and the LED bulb has a small price difference with the power-saving bulb, the crystal TV is expected to replace a large number of LED lighting next year, and the demand for the LED lamp can complement the new capacity.


Jingshi spokesman Zhang Shixian said that after the implementation of the Minamata Convention, more countries will sign up in the future, which will increase to 146 countries. It is estimated that LED lighting will double by 2020.


LEDinside said that after the international ban on mercury (mercury) in the Minamata Convention was signed in 2013, there are only three years left until 2020, including Japan, China, and the European Union. In the field of UV lamps, UV LEDs are needed to replace these UV mercury tubes, which has also accelerated the launch of the UV LED market around the world. The development of UV LED crystals and diaphragms is also expected to benefit.
