Jessie Lin, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 16 February 2012]

A recent invesitgation by Digitimes Reseach of the recent LED product prices and trends in the Japan market has revealed that the latest buzz there is the LED ceiling light.

LED ceiling lights are more diverse than the traditional incandescent lighting fixtures and relatively thinner. LED ceiling lights use similar tube lights as LED-backlit TVs, hence it would help LED firms to reduce inventories.

The price of LED light bulbs that are to replace the traditional 40W bulbs (the most common in Japan) is around JPY1,000-2,000 (US$12.76-25.51). In the retail stores, light bulbs are packed together from two a set to five a set with average price of JPY1,000 per bulb.

LED light bulbs are currently on sale in Japan and lighting firms are aiming to promote LED light bulbs that are to replace the 60W traditional light bulbs in 2012. This LED light bulbs are omni-directional with brightness of at least 800lm.

In electronics retail stores, the price of 60-inch LED TV falls to around JPY190,000-210,000, making them more affordable to most families.
