Reduction in Manufacturing Costs of UV LEDs to Boost Implementation of UV LED Technology

Published Date : Sep 19, 2016

Albany, NY, Sep 19, 2016: now features a report, titled “Global UV LED Technology Market 2016-2020.” Each and every aspect of this market is covered under the report for a coherent understanding of the global UV LED technology market. The report provides a comprehensive evaluation of various factors influencing the market and the extent of their impact on the growth. 

The low cost of manufacturing of LEDs will drive the growth of the global UV LED technology market. The utilization of large-size wafers in the manufacturing of LED chips will allow manufacturers to produce more LED chips per wafer. This is projected to reduce the overall cost of production, thereby facilitating large scale production of high-power UV LEDs. Moreover, the compact size of UV LEDs coupled with their low maintenance cost is promoting the demand for this technology across various industries including ink, adhesives, disinfection and purification, and coating. Furthermore, the increasing regulatory pressure globally on restricting products containing mercury is anticipated to augur well for the implementation of UV LED technology.

Other factors such as low energy consumption, zero warm-up time, low heat dissipation rate, and enhanced durability are likely to boost the adoption of UV LEDs. On the other hand, there are design and integration challenges associated with the manufacturing of UV LEDs. This makes them susceptible to operational issues, thereby posing a threat to manufacturers in the global UV LED technology market. However, the future growth of the market will be driven by novel applications in consumer electronics such as flat panel display manufacturing for touch screens, OLED televisions, and mobile phones.
