UV LED is a new journey led, is considered to be one of the next generation of light source. Half a year, UV led has become the LED forum, led laboratories and led market, one of the new favorite, coupled with water Minamata convention, energy-saving concessions and other policy promotion, more domestic and foreign enterprises to accelerate the layout, UV led market is about to explode.
Set state Consulting LED Research Center (ledinside) in the latest release of the "2017 UV LED and Module Application Market Report" pointed out that UV LED market value in 2017 will grow to 288 million U.S. dollars (equivalent to about 1.956 billion yuan), 2020 more to see 526 million U.S. dollars (equivalent to about 3.573 billion yuan), 2015-2020 composite growth rate (CAGR) up to 34%. To the UV LED package revenue, Japan and South Korean manufacturers sit in the top five, in order for the Japanese, nitride semiconductors, Seoul Viosys, LG Innotek and Ushio/epitex.
At home and abroad policy, equipment, such as the promotion of UV LED market penetration greatly improved, according to Ledinside observation, UV LED according to the application, mainly for uv-aled application of the light curing market, which requires a high degree of radiation lithography, high uniformity of light exposure machine application market most popular , some special curing market demand has gradually arisen.
In addition, Ledinside estimates, benefiting from uv-cled technology upgrading, 2017 manufacturers will launch uv-cled products. Among them, the flow of water sterilization still need to wait for the ripe, consumer products, air purifier and air-conditioning products, static water sterilization and other markets, more opportunities to take off first.
Review the first half of the year, with the company's powerful combination as well as a series of UV led new products, UV LED technology is also accelerating progress. Next may wish to look at all over the factory about UV LED development.

♦ Assist uv-cled Device Development, Osram and Hexatech signed strategic agreement
February 15, 2017, the world's leading supplier of ALN single crystal Hexatech company announced that the company and Germany Regensburg Osram Photoelectric Semiconductor Co., Ltd. signed two strategic agreements. These agreements include a long term supply agreement and a number of Hexatech intellectual property (IP) licenses, the former involving aluminum nitride (AlN) substrates, which are directly supported as a 2-inch (diameter) base-plate development project for Hexatech Corporation. The long-term supply commitment to Hexatech ALN (ALN) substrates directly supports Hexatech's 2-inch (diameter) substrate development plan, as well as authorizing certain Hexatech intellectual property (IP). Hexatech chief executive John Goehrke says that by authorizing Hexatech technology, Osram can accelerate its uv-cled device development based on Hexatech materials.
♦ Mountain in Japan to expand and wafer in the field of UV LED cooperation
February 2017, Japan chemical Giant Mountain (Tokuyama) and the Japanese electric equipment manufacturers Stanley Electric (TEPCO) decided to expand cooperation in the field of deep ultraviolet led, mountain to maintain the development of deep ultraviolet led materials, and wafer production, encapsulation, and product manufacturing and sales business by Stanley Tepco. Mountain of deep Ultraviolet led wafer production line and patent, are transferred to Stanleyelectric.
♦nitride Semiconductors cooperates with Seoul Viosys to develop uvled products
Nitride semiconductors and Seoul Viosys cooperation to jointly develop the LED, module and finished UV LED products.
According to the introduction, will be launched in 2017 275nmuv-cled products, of which, monocrystalline packaging products can reach 13mw@150ma, four-crystal packaging products can reach 30mw@400ma. At the same time finished products also introduced a number of sterilization and deodorization products, but also provide wireless charging function, the company believes that the future Uvled finished products market in the consumer level will be more to achieve the function of life.
♦ Osram acquired led engininc, special lighting layout and next city
