New NanoMarkets Report Projects Smart Lighting Chips Markets to Reach Over $1.0 Billion by 2019

Based on the broad acceptance of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), of which smart lighting is a part, NanoMarkets has considerably upgraded its long-term forecasts for smart lighting compared with a previous report we issued in 2013.

NanoMarkets

Glen Allen, Virginia (June 24, 2014) — The market for LED drivers, MCUs, sensors and other chips used in smart lighting will grow from around $67 million in 2014 to $1.05 billion in 2019. This is according to a new report from industry analyst firm NanoMarkets titled, “The Markets for Smart Lighting Drivers, Controllers and Sensor Chips – 2014.” Based on the broad acceptance of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), of which smart lighting is a part, NanoMarkets has considerably upgraded its long-term forecasts for smart lighting compared with a previous report we issued in 2013.

For more details about the report: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/the-markets-for-smart-lighting-drivers-controllers-and-sensor-chips-2014.

The firm recently issued two separate reports on smart lighting markets in a two volume series. See http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/smart-lighting-markets-2014-v1-v2 for details.

About the report:

The report, “The Markets for Smart Lighting Drivers, Controllers and Sensor Chips – 2014,” provides insight into the market opportunities available to the semiconductor industry as the result of the current boom in smart lighting, which itself is part of the transition to an IoT. Smart lighting provides users high levels of energy efficiency, color tuning (mood enhancement) capabilities and/or visible light communications.

The report contains detailed eight-year market projections of seven major smart lighting chip types in both revenue and volume terms. Additional breakouts are provided by (1) the part of the lighting system in which the chips are used and (2) the technology generation of the system itself and (3) the type of building, vehicle or location in which the smart lighting systems will be used.

Firms mentioned in the report include: Acuity Brands, ARM, Atmel, Broadcom, California Eastern Labs, Casio, Cavet, Cypress Semiconductor, Daintree Networks, Digi, Dresden elektronik, Eastfield, Easylite, Echoflex, Energy Automation Systems, EnOcean, Fifth Light, FlexiPanel, Freescale, Leviton, IBSEN, Infineon, Intel, Leedarson, Libellium, Lumenergi, Lumetric, Lutron, Luxim, Marvell, Masco, Microchip Technology, MK Electric, MMB Research, Nivis, NXP, OLEDCOMM, Omnio, Osram, Panasonic, Philips, Radiocrafts, Radios Inc., Renesas, RF Monolithics, Schneider Electric, Sena, Sharp, Siemens, Silicon Labs, STMicroelectronics, Supreme Architecture, Sylvania, Telegesis, Texas Instruments, Universal Lighting, and Zonoff.

From the report:

The LED lighting market is expected to expand rapidly and much of the next-generation of LED lighting being deployed will be “smart.” We are seeing a growing interest in smart lighting by the chipmakers as part of their refocusing on Internet-of-Things opportunities. New types of intelligent LED drivers with embedded sensors and MCUs are expected to emerge as a result. Sales of LED drivers for smart lighting systems are expected to reach $525 million by 2019.

Despite such growth, LED driver chips for energy efficient lighting will commoditize quickly. It will become increasingly hard to make the case for smart lighting on just efficiency grounds anymore. As a result, NanoMarkets believes that chipmakers will then turn their attention to color-tunable lighting for improved mood, health and job performance. Here there is still considerable opportunity to designing innovative chips enabling cool-to-warm adjustment and the ability to cycle through a range of colors. Chips consumed by color tuning smart lighting systems will reach almost $260 million by 2019. Future light tuning chips for lighting systems will also be built around a new generation of LED microarrays.

Standards development for smart lighting-related wireless networking has accelerated in the past year. Important new developments in this area include the evolution of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to control lighting using QR codes and the emergence of a Google protocol for smart lighting networking that incorporates Ipv6. Meanwhile, ZigBee light bulbs getting cheaper thanks to recent “smart lamp” introductions from GE and possibly others. By 2019, the revenues generated by smart lighting sensors are expected to exceed $220 million.

New NanoMarkets Report Projects OLED Lighting Market to Hit Revenues of $1.4 billion in 2019

Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has just published its latest forecasts of the OLED lighting market predicting a $1.4 billion market opportunity in 2019.

NanoMarkets

Glen Allen, Virginia (May 15, 2014) — Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has just published its latest forecasts of the OLED lighting market predicting a $1.4 billion market opportunity in 2019. The report, “OLED Lighting Markets-2014” (Code Nano-721) notes that while the sector has foundered for the past few years it now appears to be worthy of some renewed optimism based on both on both improvements in OLED lighting panel performance and recent expansion of manufacturing facilities.

Details of the report, including a table of contents and downloadable slides are available at http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/oled-lighting-markets-2014.

A companion report titled OLED Materials Markets 2014 will be issued in early June. See http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/oled-materials-markets-2014.

Highlights:

OLEDs aren’t just for luxury lighting any more. The efficacy and luminance of OLED lighting panels are reaching levels where OLED lighting firms can claim that their products are truly energy efficient and have the brightness that make them a practical form of lighting for offices and homes. For example, LG Chem says that next year it will have 135 lm/W panels with 5,000 cd/m2 luminance.

Until recently, most of the output of the OLED lighting business was development kits for designers. However, in the next few years, revenues from kits will be rapidly overtaken by revenues from OLED luminaires, with revenues from OLED luminaires for homes reaching almost $400 million in sales by 2019 and revenues from OLED office luminaires reaching almost $380 million in the same year.

OLED capacity continues to grow. In the past three years, Osram and Philips have invested $25 million and $57 million respectively in setting up OLED production lines. Meanwhile, Konica Minolta is currently constructing an OLED mass production facility at an approximate investment of around $100 million.

By next year, worldwide capacity for OLED lighting panels is expected to be around 30 million panels. This number is expected to grow to almost 40 million by 2019. NanoMarkets believes that in the next five years there will be a major influx of low-cost (and possibly government subsidized) Chinese suppliers that will force down OLED lighting prices in a manner similar to what the solar panel industry has experienced.

About the Report:

This report provides a comprehensive analysis of the OLED lighting market, assesses its future potential and offers detailed eight-year forecasts for the OLED lighting business including volume (units and square meters shipped) and value projections of the following market segments: designer kits and related products, office and commercial lighting, residential lighting, non-automotive outdoor lighting, automotive lighting and customized installations.

The report also includes projections of manufacturing capacity for OLED lighting panels and an assessment of which geographic regions will prove the best customers for OLED lighting.

Latest NanoMarkets Report on CIGS Photovoltaics Predicts $2.7 billion (USD) Market in 2019

Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets is set to release a new report on the CIGS photovoltaics market that predicts a market potential for CIGS PV to be worth $2.7 billion (USD) in 2019 up from $1.3 billion this year.

NanoMarkets

Glen Allen, Virginia (May 2, 2014) — Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets is set to release a new report on the CIGS photovoltaics market that predicts a market potential for CIGS PV to be worth $2.7 billion (USD) in 2019 up from $1.3 billion this year. The report also predicts that CIGS will grow from a capacity of 1.6 GW this year to 7.1 GW in 2019. The report titled, “CIGS Photovoltaics Markets 2014 and Beyond” will begin shipping to clients the week of May 5th. Additional details about the report are available on the firm’s website at: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/cigs-photovoltaics-markets-2014-and-beyond.

The report follows a recently released NanoMarkets reports on the BIPV glass market (see here http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/bipv-glass-markets-2014-beyond for details) that the firm projected would reach $2.7 billion in revenues by 2019.

About the Report:

The industry shakeout in CIGS PV has been brutal. In 2010 there were more than 25 companies with plans for over 1 GW of capacity, but to date only Solar Frontier has achieved the goal. As the shakeout continued, there were even questions whether any new capacity would be added beyond the approximately 3 GW that was in place as the CIGS sector faced extreme price pressure from falling silicon based PV. Nonetheless, NanoMarkets believes that while multiple start-ups have either been liquidated or acquired, the remaining few large CIGS players are poised to add significant capacity.

This report analyzes the opportunities that are emerging for CIGS in this very new phase of the solar industry. The report takes a detailed look into the technical evolution of CIGs fabrication and encapsulation and show how this will impact CIGS market expansion and cost reduction. Much of the report is devoted to the opportunities for CIGS in building-integrated PV (BIPV market) and how CIGS flexible modules and price parity with silicon solar panels could considerably improve the revenues generated by CIGS technology in the near future.

This report also includes NanoMarkets’ eight-year forecasts of the market for CIGS PV. These forecasts are broken down by type of application-BIPV, flexible devices, etc.-and by the manufacturing technology used, including deposition technology and flexible vs. rigid manufacturing. This report is essential reading for firms that manufacture or develop CIGS PV and for everyone interested in future of the PV industry.

NanoMarkets has been following the CIGS space since its earliest days and this report provides the latest and most up to date information on the current state of the CIGS and guidance with regard to its future development and growth.
