Taiwan facing Chinese threat in LED market

日期: 2014-01-02

 
Taiwanese LED makers are fast losing their market shares to Chinese vendors, with a Chinese company recently overtaking a Taiwanese producer as the second-largest LED company in Greater China.
China’s MLS Coposted revenues of NT$12.9 billion (US$408.49 million) in the first three quarters of this year, according to the Taiwan-based Photonics Industry and Technology Development Association (PIDA, ).
That means it has surpassed Taiwan’s Lite-On Technology Corp as the second-largest LED company in Greater China, and is closing in to the top spot currently held by Taiwan’s Everlight Electronics Co, PIDA said.
Much has changed in five years. In 2009, only three Chinese LED vendors were ranked in the top 15 companies in Greater China and only one — Foshan NationStar Optoelectronics Co— made it to the top 10, according to PIDA.
So far this year, six Chinese companies are already on the top 15 list and most have had at least a 40 percent increase in revenue from the previous year, PIDA said.
These companies are MLS, Foshan NationStar Optoelectronics, Shenzhen Jufei Optoelectronics Co , Shenzhen Refond Optoelectronics Co, Guangzhou Hongli Optoelectronic Co (Honglitronic) and Shenzhen CF Lighting Co.
China’s technology in LED packaging and module production has improved in recent years and Chinese manufacturers are now increasingly able to meet their domestic demand, PIDA said.
PIDA advised Taiwanese companies to cooperate with more large international companies and focus on developing a few high-potential products, such as ultraviolet and infrared LED products, to differentiate themselves from their competitors.
