OLED General-Purpose Lighting to Reach $4.1 Billion by 2021; US Consumption Value of Flashlights Reached $1.824 Billion in 2011

FARMINGTON, Conn., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Although LED lighting clearly has a bright future in solid-state stationary applications, the market still remains on the near side of the growth curve. This will change rapidly, however, as LED lighting uptake accelerates dramatically in the latter half of the 2010s decade, dominated by new applications including medical and biophotonic devices.


Having accurate forecasts and analysis will be essential to companies that wish to compete on the global stage. With premium market research from the world's leading publishers, Global Information Inc (GII) will help these businesses stay on the cutting edge with the best forecasts, research, and analyses.

ElectroniCast United States Flashlight Market Forecast and Analysis

Flashlights used in the Consumer/Non-Specific end-user segment are typically less expensive units versus other applications/end-user groups. For example, flashlights used by the United States Military and in Law Enforcement, demand (more) rugged designed, more features and (more) lumens or brightness versus the typical household flashlights found in kitchen drawers. Of course this is true in other applications, as well, such as explosion-proof headlamps used in the Mining sector.

In this study, ElectroniCast provides a market forecast and analysis for the use of flashlights in the United States based on the following light source types, as well as flashlights equipped for recharging versus standard (not rechargeable/equipped types).

LEDs Used in Medical and Biophotonic Devices Global Market Forecast and Analysis (2011-2018)

Biophotonics has become the established general term for all techniques that deal with the interaction between biological items and photons. This refers to emission, detection, absorption, reflection, modification, and creation of radiation from biomolecular, cells, tissues, organisms and biomaterials. Areas of application are life science, medicine, agriculture, and environmental science.

This study is based on analysis of information obtained continually over the past several years, but updated through the middle of July 2012. During this period, ElectroniCast analysts performed interviews with authoritative and representative individuals in the following sectors relative to the use of LEDs: medical, science, bio-photonic, display industry, test/measurement, instrumentation, R&D, university, military defense and government.

OLED General Lighting Global Market Forecast (June 2012)

ElectroniCast estimates in 2012, the worldwide consumption value of General Lighting OLEDs will reached (only) $34.8 million; consumption value is forecast to increase at an average annual growth rate of 104 percent to $1.19 billion in 2016. From 2016-2021, the total consumption value of General Lighting OLEDs is forecast an increase 28 percent per year, reaching nearly $4.1 billion in the year 2021.

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that lighting for buildings accounts for more than 20 percent of U.S. energy use. Over the next 20 years, the agency estimates that widespread adoption of LED and OLED lighting could reduce electricity demands 60 percent and prevent almost 260 metric tons of carbon emission.

LED Professional Production Lighting in Broadcast, Videography & Motion Pictures United States Market Forecast

ElectroniCast's updated LED production lighting devices forecast for 2011-2018 in the US broadcast TV, motion picture and videography markets is now available through Global Information Inc. The LED market, despite exciting and innovative devices driven by technological advances and ecological and energy efficiency concerns, still faces challenges in overcoming performance and price limitations and in attracting widespread consumption.

LED lighting is well accepted by the broadcast TV, motion pictures and videography industry sectors for lighting effects and set lighting, largely due to the flexibility of a single light source being able to generate a great variety of colors. Additionally, continuous cost/performance improvements driven by technological advancements are driving the LED lighting fixture market from a niche-only solution to a general use solution.

The market forecast data are presented for LED lighting fixture (including the factory-installed Lamps/bulbs), segmented by Consumption Value (US$, million), Quantity (number/units), and Average Selling Prices (ASP $, each), and are further segmented into the following end-user groups (applications): Broadcast Television, Motion Pictures (Cinematography), and Videography.
