LED lighting, lighting cross-strait cooperation opportunities

On the 13th, cross-strait lighting procurement docking and information conference was held in Xiamen. 15 international buyers from Europe, America, emerging economies and Middle East countries and nearly 100 cross-strait energy-saving lighting suppliers were invited to participate. In just one day, nearly 250 purchase negotiations brought Haixi a $60 million intent purchase order.

As one of the highlights of the 18th Taiwan Fair, the Optoelectronics series has become the largest, most influential and appealing optoelectronic industry annual event in the Haixi region, opening a window for cross-strait industrial science and technology exchanges and cooperation. Among them, the 2014 Cross-Strait LED Application Innovation Forum attracted more than 350 industry representatives from both sides of the Taiwan Straits to discuss how LED-led semiconductor lighting can light up cross-strait cooperation business opportunities and eventually enter the diversified international market.

Apply market segmentation to change future life

'The future of LED applications is extremely broad, which will lead to a revolution in the new generation of light.' This view has become the consensus of many industry experts. While intelligent lighting is closely following the construction of smart cities, innovative applications such as wearable electronics, optical communications, and plant lighting have gradually become the new favorite of the market.

'The growth and development of plants depends on photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is affected by light quality, and light quality is easy to combine and regulate. It is the characteristic of LED lighting.' In the view of Wu Ling, chairman of the International Semiconductor Lighting Industry Alliance, plant cultivation is only LEDs are a small part of the application beyond the field of lighting. She said that in the future, the application market of LED-led semiconductor lighting will be further subdivided, and on-demand lighting will also change people's future lifestyle.

In the future, LED will extend to the fields of agriculture, medical care, communication, etc. The vegetables of ordinary people can be promoted by special LED lamp illumination, and the quality and output are greatly improved. In the medical field, the filling of filling teeth can be instantly solidified by LED light, shortening Our painful time; daily small broken wounds can be repaired by applying a special material and illuminating the LED light, which is painless and hygienic. In the field of communication, the WiFi module can be implanted in the LED lighting fixture to realize signal transmission. Let us really experience the ubiquitous signal.

'LED lighting is leading the major changes in the lighting industry, and will enter the new development stage of LED lighting driven by application demand.' Academician Zheng Youzhen of the Chinese Academy of Sciences said that in the future, LED will stand on the new starting point of human application of light, innovative technology, Aiming at the application of wide-angle lighting, creating LED lighting has become a new era of intelligent, digital and networked lighting that is more efficient, energy-saving and green.

According to a survey conducted by the National Semiconductor Lighting Engineering R&D and Industry Alliance, in 2013, China's semiconductor lighting industry was generally warming up, and the LED functional lighting market was quickly launched, which ushered in the spring of LED lighting. In 2014, China's LED industry will continue its upward trend in 2013 and usher in a new round of growth. It is expected that the growth rate of output value will reach 40% this year.

Cross-strait cooperation with LED as the entry point

In the development goal of semiconductor lighting proposed by Wu Ling, by 2015, the national total output value will reach 500 billion yuan, and the cost will drop by 50%; in the functional lighting market, the penetration rate will reach 30%, and the power saving will be 100 billion kWh; Over a trillion yuan, the market penetration rate reached more than 70%, a total of 340 billion kWh of electricity.

'The most important thing for the cooperation between the two sides of the optoelectronic industry is to find a good entry point.' Ma Chengbai, secretary general of the Xiamen Optoelectronic Industry Association, believes that in 2008, the two sides launched the 'bridge project' for the first time, with the concept of 'government bridge, private bridge' Piloting the cross-strait LED cooperation plan in Xiamen and Guangzhou, which laid a good foundation for the cooperation between the two sides of the optoelectronic industry. Nowadays, cross-strait cooperation and exchanges are further deepened, and LED as a pilot project will be a good entry point.

'LEDs consume only about 20% of the power of traditional tungsten light sources with the same brightness. Its high-profile industrial status has made pure semiconductor light sources an indispensable component of the new era lighting system.' Taiwanese workers Zhu Mudao, head of the optoelectronic components and system application group of the Institute of Electro-optics, said that how to use the LED industry development experience requires the joint efforts of the cross-strait industry to make continuous investment in the key technology research and development of LED lighting.

In 2004, Xiamen City took the lead in implementing the photovoltaic industry development plan in the country forward, and achieved remarkable achievements through good cooperation with Taiwan's optoelectronic industry. In the past 10 years, the total number of optoelectronic enterprises in Xiamen has increased from more than 50 to more than 300. The total industrial output value has increased from 6 billion yuan to 121.8 billion yuan, an increase of more than 20 times. It has become the two photovoltaic enterprises in Fujian Province with a value of over 100 billion yuan. One of the cities; in March of this year, Xiamen was the first national semiconductor lighting industrialization base awarded by the Ministry of Science and Technology, and was named one of the only two Class A bases in the national semiconductor lighting field by the Ministry of Science and Technology; Focusing on the development characteristics of the LED lighting industry, it has become a sample of the development of semiconductor lighting industrialization bases in 14 countries across the country. It has been hailed as the “Xiamen Model” by the industry and has become one of the two modes of LED industry development in China.

'The LED lighting industry on both sides of the strait should stimulate each other's advantages and complement each other to create a Chinese brand.' Wang Binglong, chairman of the Taiwan Optoelectronic Semiconductor Industry Association, believes that Taiwan's LED lighting research and development is early, with strong experience and outstanding advantages in semiconductors. There are good conditions in terms of capital and technology. As a frontier of Taiwan, Xiamen is a major town for the manufacture and export of LED epitaxial chips and high-end LED bulbs. The industrial cluster effect is remarkable. Therefore, to play the advantages of both sides, look at the world, and cooperation and development is the road to win-win and common prosperity.
