Research and Markets: 2012 Assessment of China's Market for LED Wafers Report: Prices Have Been Dropping In This Market by Around 10% over Last Few Years
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/khgc4s/assessment_of)
has announced the addition of the "Assessment
of China's Market for LED Wafers" report to their offering.
This report is comprised of data and analysis of the China LED Wafers
market and presents a predominantly supply-side view in terms of market
numbers. In addition to suppliers, primary research covers channel
influencers, customers and end-users, and industry experts.
This study focuses on domestic sales of submersible pumps which are
segmented into five sections: low, medium, high power white, low power
blue/green, yellow/red LEDs. High and medium power colored LEDs are
included in the report as other.
Profit margins srink for domestic suppliers as production capacity
expands in the China LED wafer market.
A new study by GCiS China Strategic Research discovered that Chinese LED
wafer makers' profit margins are under increasing pressure from
oversupply and stiff foreign competition. Prices have been dropping in
this market by around 10% over the last few years, and current polls
suggest that sliding prices may continue.
The report covers all LED wafer products, from high-power white LEDs to
low-power colored LEDs and even ultraviolet LEDs. Foreign competition in
each market segment differs greatly, depending mainly on the technology
necessary for production, with high-tech product markets still mainly in
the hands of foreign suppliers.
Governmental support of suppliers through production equipment subsidies
and local lighting projects has drawn more domestic companies to enter
the market and expand capacity, competing on volume and price. However
this pits capacity against capacity, and has led the whole industry to
become inundated with the thin wafers. All are just side effects of the
Chinese commoditization strategy. This commoditization tale will span
over years, and certainly not months, however.
