LEDs Used in TestMeasurement Medical Other Science Devices

LEDs Used in Test/Measurement, Medical & Other Science Devices

Report code: SDMRIC1517674 | Industry: ICT | Published On: 2021-01-08

We announced the release of an update and application expansion to their annual market study and forecast of the use of packaged light emitting diodes (LEDs) used in test/measurement, medical and other science devices.

Last year (2018), the global consumption value of packaged LED chips in the selected devices reached $476 million, up from $426 million versus the previous year (an increase of 11.7 percent). The value is forecasted to continue to increase in all product categories, with strong to moderate quantity growth, partially offset by a decline of average prices, especially during the 2018-2023 timeframe. Market forecast data refers to LED consumption for a particular calendar year; therefore, this data is not cumulative data.

The market data for are also segmented by the following colors (type): Red, Green, Blue, White, Multiple Color/Multiple Chip, and UV and others.

According to the study, the worldwide value of UV-LED packaged chips used specifically for test/measurement, medical and other science applications is forecast to reach over $360 million in 2028. “Many devices, which have traditionally used mercury (Hg)-vapor Ultraviolet (UV) lamps are now utilizing LEDs, capable of producing UV radiation,” said Stephen Montgomery, president of the California-based consultancy.

This LED market study is also segmented into the following major application categories:
• Sensing/Detection and Analytical/Monitoring
• Photo-therapy/Sanitation/Cell Regeneration/Curing
• Instrumentation Light Source and Imaging

Sensing/Detection and Analytical/Monitoring applications, in 2018, represented 33.7 percent of the worldwide consumption value of packaged LED chips in the selected test/measurement and medical/science devices. The relative market share of LEDs used in the Sensing/Detection and Analytical/ Monitoring applications is forecast to increase to 37.5 percent in value in 2028.

Also, covered in the study are the use of LEDs in horticulture, sterilization of surface areas, air and water, medical, health & beauty Photodynamic Therapy (PDT), as well as medical/science curing, and several other uses. LEDs used in Instrumentation Light Sources and Imaging devices are forecast to increase in value by a multiple factor of nearly 4x over the next decade.

This year (2019), the America region is projected to hold a 34.5% share of worldwide quantity of packaged LEDs in selected test/measurement and medical/science devices. The Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region is forecast for aggressive growth. “This year, the Asia Pacific region (APAC) is forecast to hold a slight lead in relative volume market share,” Montgomery added.

Primary Research: This study is based on analysis of information obtained continually over the past several years, but updated through the end of March 2019. During this period, ElectroniCast analysts performed interviews with authoritative and selected 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/space and government. The interviews were conducted principally with:

• Engineers, marketing personnel and management at manufacturers of LED test/measurement & medical science equipment/devices and related equipment, as well as other technologies

• Design group leaders, engineers, marketing personnel and market planners at major users and potential users of LEDs and test/measurement & medical and other science equipment/devices

• Other industry experts, including those focused on standards activities, trade associations, and investments.

The interviews covered issues of technology, R&D support, pricing, contract size, reliability, documentation, installation/maintenance crafts, standards, supplier competition and other topics.

Analysis The analyst then considered customer expectations of near term growth in their application, plus forecasted economic payback of investment, technology trends and changes in government regulations in each geographical region, to derive estimated growth rates of quantity and price of each product subset in each application. These forecasted growth rates are combined with the estimated baseline data to obtain the long-range forecasts at the lowest detailed level of each product and application.

Secondary Research A full review of published information was also performed to supplement information obtained through our interviews. The following sources were reviewed:

• Professional technical journals, papers and conference proceedings
• Trade press articles
• Company profile and financial information; Product literature
• Additional information based on previous ElectroniCast market studies
• Personal knowledge of the research team

In analyzing and forecasting the complexities of geographical regional markets, it is essential that the market research team have a good and a deep understanding of the technology and of the industry. ElectroniCast members who participated in this report were qualified.

Bottom-up Methodology ElectroniCast forecasts, as illustrated in the forecast data structure, are developed initially at the lowest detail level, then summed to successively higher levels. The background market research focuses on the amount of each type of product used in each application in the base year (last year = 2017), and the prices paid at the first transaction from the manufacturer. This forms the base year data. ElectroniCast analysts then forecast the growth rates in component quantity use in each application, along with price trends, based on competitive, economic and technology forecast trends, and apply these to derive long term forecasts at the lowest application levels. The usage growth rate forecasts depend heavily on analysis of overall end user trends applicable products/applications and equipment usage and economic payback.

Cross-Correlation Increases Accuracy The quantities of packaged LEDs, LED Driver ICs, LED materials/wafer/die/chips, LED Lamps and LED fixtures (luminaries) and other LED-based components, manufacturing processes/quality control/yields, and end-use products used in a particular application are interrelated. Since ElectroniCast conducts annual analysis and forecast updates in each LED component field, accurate current quantity estimates are part of the corporate database. These quantities are cross-correlated as a "sanity check".

ElectroniCast, each year since 2002, has conducted extensive research and updated their forecasts of several LED lighting categories. As technology and applications have advanced, the number of component subsets covered by the forecasts has expanded impressively.

The calculation and analysis data spreadsheet technique is based upon input/output analysis, leveraging the quantitative consumption quantity, price and value of each item in each application at all levels to achieve reasonable quantitative conclusions; this interactive analysis concept, first applied on a major scale by Leonteff, of the US Department of Commerce, in the mid 1950s, was then adopted successfully by analyst/forecasting firms Quantum Science, Gnostic Concepts and (in 1981) by ElectroniCast
