This report examines the outlook for upstream, midstream and downstream sectors of the LED industry in 2013. The upstream sector, which includes MOCVD equipment, rare earth materials and sapphire substrates, is also particularly significant as an indicator of trends in the LED industry as a whole over the next year.
Abstract
Global demand for MOCVD equipment for LED use, 2006-2013

This report examines the outlook for upstream, midstream and downstream sectors of the LED industry in 2013. The upstream sector, which includes MOCVD equipment, rare earth materials and sapphire substrates, is also particularly significant as an indicator of trends in the LED industry as a whole over the next year. As Taiwan's LED chip manufacturers are the global number one in terms of capacity, this report provides operational forecasts, product line makeup and capacity information for Taiwan-based LED chip makers in the second half of 2013, as well as analyses and key data for their major competitors in the Asia region. The section on downstream demand focuses on products that are exhibiting marked growth in 2013, including low-priced, direct-lit LED TVs and LED light bulbs. There is also an analysis of trends in LED light bulb specifications and prices for the second half of 2013.
