Since 2010, global LED general lighting has developed rapidly, and many countries have issued relevant policies to promote its application. China has introduced a series of measures to promote the application of LED lighting, such as the Ten Cities, Tendering for Semiconductor Lighting Products Application Demonstration Project jointly carried out by the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Housing, Urban and Rural Construction and the Ministry of Transportation, etc. The price subsidy policy of LED lighting which is the most concerned in the industry is also coming out, and the LED lighting has gradually entered the stage of large-scale application.
1. China's lighting market is huge, and its products are mainly incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps and other traditional light sources. According to the sales volume of lamps, the share of LED lighting in general lighting market is less than 1%, and it is far from becoming the mainstream lighting products. In addition to street lamp and tunnel lamp, LED lighting applications in China lag behind the major lighting markets in Europe, America and Japan. The application market needs to be supported and promoted. In addition, compared with the market demand, the specific implementation of standards and specifications is still insufficient, which has caused obstacles to the promotion of LED lighting applications.
2. The lighting industry has a strong foundation, and China is the largest lighting source and lamp producer in the world. According to the statistics of China Lighting Electrical Association, in 2010, China produced 3.8 billion incandescent lamps and 6.69 billion fluorescent lamps, including 1.83 billion straight-tube fluorescent lamps, 1.8 billion ring fluorescent lamps and 4.43 billion CFLs. In 2010, 174 million HID lamps were produced nationwide, including 56 million high-pressure mercury lamps, 54 million high-pressure sodium lamps and 63 million metal halide lamps. At the same time, the consumption of lighting fixtures in China is mainly provided by domestic manufacturers, and the share of imported products in China is less than 5%. At the same time, nearly 70% of domestic production is used for export. Good lighting industry foundation not only provides reliable product supply for domestic LED lighting market application, but also provides very good support for domestic LED lighting industry to improve the performance-price ratio of LED lighting through scale effect.
