LED Packaging Market Analysis

The LED Packaging Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period. The growing demand and adoption of LED packaging by several industries like automotive, including surged demand for display panel market, CSP LEDs, healthcare, and others, are driving the market's growth. Further, the growing initiatives and regulations to promote LEDs for environmental benefits and energy-efficient solutions fuel market growth.

  • LED technology has been capturing the imagination of the lighting industry by offering small and efficient lighting solutions to a diverse set of consumers with enhanced efficiency. Innovations in the industry are saturated, and at the same time, the market has overcapacity. For TV display applications, the industry is moving from OLED to QLED (Quantum dot Light-emitting diode), the latest innovation. This is expected to penetrate more into the market.
  • The design process of packaging has directly influenced factors such as temperature, luminescence efficiency, wavelength, life span, and others and has reduced the overall operational costs. Hence, owing to the improvements in the packaging technology of power LED chips, there is increased adoption of LED solutions.​
  • The requirements for LED packaging are very stringent. If LED chips are not placed into the package precisely, the luminescence efficiency of the overall packaging device might be affected directly. Any variation from the established position will prevent LED light from being entirely reflected from the reflective cup, affecting LED’s brightness.
  • Rapid advancements in LED package applications are projected to boost innovation and consumption in the coming years, propelling the LED packaging market. On the other hand, high saturation may limit product acceptance, which, in turn, limits market growth.
  • The demand for new LEDs that provide improved night vision and enhanced side visibility is anticipated to outpace existing LEDs in the coming years. CSP LEDs are commonly used in automotive applications such as headlights, cabin illumination, ambient lighting, indicator lights, headlight clusters, driver monitoring systems, and parking-assistance system camera lights. LED package's demand is also driven by high demand for central stack displays, instrument cluster displays, and the introduction of augmented reality-enabled OLED in the automotive display market.​
  • Since the outbreak of COVID-19, various businesses have faced challenges in the supply chain. The LED industry is no exception; as a significant share of the raw materials for producing LEDs and Drivers originated from Asian countries, the industry was significantly influenced during March and April as the region was under severe clutches of the pandemic. Further, the pandemic led to a decline in demand for display panels from the automotive and consumer electronics industries. Consumers have reduced spending on expensive products, such as high-end smartphones and OLED TVs, negatively impacting the market.
  • The rapid enhancement in the applications of LED packaging is expected to increase innovation and consumption in the upcoming years, driving the LED packaging market. On the other hand, high saturation may restrict product adoption, which may affect the market's growth.
  • The high competition in the market is restricting the margin, as there is a continuous decline in prices by players to gain market share.

LED Packaging Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the LED Packaging Market according to our research experts:

Government Initiatives and Regulations to Adopt Energy-efficient LEDs will Drive the Market

  • The residential sector outlook has largely been optimistic, driven by a shift in consumer demand toward energy-effective lighting, such as LEDs. Moreover, recent government initiatives and growing awareness among consumers are expected to have a significant impact on the industry.
  • For instance, UJALA, a Government of India initiative launched in 2015 to promote energy efficiency in the country, has already distributed over 36 crores of LED light bulbs as of August 2021. such initiatives will show a substantial effect on the LED Packaging Market.
  • Out of all the lighting sources, LED lights hold a major share. The growing awareness and increasing government policies have increased LEDs' penetration rate. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the penetration rate of LEDs into the lighting market is expected to reach 75.8% in 2025.
  • The increasing prominence of LEDs can also lead to the adoption of smart lighting systems (connected lighting) in industries. Owing to the flexibility of LEDs in terms of color variation and brightness, connected systems are more likely to benefit from the use of LEDs over traditional lighting sources.
  • In October 2021, the US Department of Energy (DOE) announced that it would invest USD 61 million in ten pilot projects that will use new technologies to turn thousands of homes and businesses into cutting-edge, energy-efficient structures. This involves switching out incandescent and halogen bulbs for more energy-efficient LED lighting. As a result, with the increase in the LED market, the LED Packaging Market in the United States will grow in the forecasted time period.

Asia-Pacific to Witness the Fastest Growth

  • Currently, Asia-Pacific is experiencing a tremendous shift in lighting systems, as companies in this region are adopting LED lighting systems in the industries, owing to their improved efficiency.
  • China has gradually reduced the sale of incandescent light bulb products during the last five years. This ensures that outdated technology is soon to be replaced by more advanced and profitable technology.
  • The Indian government's plan of deploying cost-effective LED’s across the end users received a decent response. The country is on the verge of replacing all street lamps with LED and adopting smart LEDs for traffic signals. This move is likely to increase the demand for local LED manufacturers, leading to the growth of the LED packaging market.
  • Multiple governmental and private initiatives have been driving the need for smart and efficient lighting systems in the modernization and development of infrastructure, such as smart cities across the region, which directly boosts the market for LED packages in the region.
  • Government energy efficiency initiatives in the Asia Pacific region have made a significant contribution to the growth of the LED packaging market. Several government schemes and plans to promote energy efficiency are currently in the works in countries such as India and China. Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All (UJALA), an initiative launched by the Government of India in 2015 to encourage energy efficiency in the country, has already distributed over 36 crores of LED light bulbs as of August 2021.
