With the continuous natural disasters in recent years and the desire for a healthy and free lifestyle for human beings, portable lighting has become more and more valued by people. From emergency lighting to outdoor travel, portable lighting is a must-have item in the home, but the traditional portable device technology is old-fashioned. The design was cumbersome, and the energy-saving and environment-friendly models were greatly reduced, so the new generation of LED light sources became a hot spot. Portable lighting refers to small, light weight, lighting products with certain mobility, generally hand-held electronic lighting tools, belonging to a branch of the lighting industry.
Two major factors driving the rise of LED:
Frequent disasters cause social problems
The security of electric power is threatened. In recent years, natural and social disasters have occurred frequently throughout the world. For example, the Indian Ocean tsunami that occurred in 2004 caused 150,000 deaths and left hundreds of thousands of people homeless. The 2005 earthquake in South Asia caused more than 3 million people to become homeless. In 2010, the earthquake in Haiti killed 110,000 people. More than 3 million people have become refugees; the Japanese tsunami in 2011.
The frequent occurrence of natural disasters caused huge damage to public facilities such as power facilities in the disaster areas. The power facilities were in a paralyzed state, which caused great obstacles to the development of emergency relief work in the disaster areas. The shortage of electricity also brought great disasters to the daily lives of people in the disaster areas. Due to the inconvenience, portable lighting fixtures as a supplemental measure of power supply after disasters have played an irreplaceable role in the rapid development of disaster relief work and the maintenance of basic daily lighting. Portable lighting fixtures have also been widely used.
Rapid development of outdoor sports in developed countries
Drive the use of portable lamps; in recent years, people yearn for a healthy lifestyle, outdoor sports have a very broad mass base, providing the fundamental driving force for the development of outdoor products industry, portable lighting as part of outdoor products, showing the rapid development of Chaoyang industry The strong momentum. With the gradual phase-out of traditional light source products, the price of new LED light source products will be reduced, and the proportion of portable lighting products using LED light sources in the overall product will be significantly increased, which will become a new hot spot in the industry.
The four major advantages of LED light source are unparalleled:
Compared with traditional light sources, LED light sources have the characteristics of energy saving, environmental protection, high efficiency, stability, etc. The application of portable lighting devices using mobile power can effectively increase the working time of lighting equipment, reduce product weight, and make it more mobile. However, in the past, subject to the LED chip price factor, the application of LED light sources in portable mobile lighting devices still needs to be improved. The following table shows the penetration rate of LED light source products in portable lighting devices from 2006 to 2010.
In particular, with the gradual maturity of the LED industry since 2008, the price of LED light sources has been gradually reduced, which has greatly increased the affordability of portable lighting equipment manufacturers for LED light source products. At the same time, the gradual stabilization of the performance of LED light source products has also stimulated portable lighting equipment manufacturers to select LED light sources as the light sources of equipment. According to the statistics of China Lighting Association, the penetration rate of LED light source products in portable lighting equipment in China reached 35% in 2010 and will reach about 65% by 2013. The following figure shows the output value of LED light source portable lighting industry in China in 2007-2013 and the scale of application of LED light source.
In summary, with the acceleration of the overall recovery of the global economy, China's portable lighting products industry will continue to maintain a stable development trend. At the same time, prices gradually return to rationality, and the application of LED light sources in portable lighting products will become a new direction for the development of the industry. As China's LED industry continues to mature, LED light source performance tends to stabilize.
