LED Phosphor Markets – 2012
  • Advanced Materials

    This new NanoMarkets report provides an in-depth analysis and forecast of the LED phosphor market in the next eight years.  It builds off the extensive experience that NanoMarkets has in the area of solid-state lighting and related materials. 

    This report examines the latest market strategies, products and technical developments in the area of LED phosphors.  We identify how performance improvements are likely to help grow addressable markets for phosphors, with an especial focus on general illumination, outdoor/street lighting and backlighting and where the opportunities are to be found to make money in the LED phosphor market.

    The report also includes NanoMarkets’ assessments of the strategies of leading firms active in the LED phosphors space.  And, as always with NanoMarkets reports, this report contains granular eight-year forecasts of the inorganic LED phosphors shipments in volume and value terms, with breakouts by type of phosphor.  This report is required reading, not just for strategy planners at phosphor firms, but for those throughout the solid-state lighting industry.
