China is confidently stepping up its market leadership in lighting products. And today is no surprise that when turning a table lamp, a floor lamp, a light bulb, or any other lighting device or product in this category, the eyes see familiar phrase «made in China». In particular, it is widely found in products group of LEDs – LED from China, today it has become the norm for the market.
Without a doubt advanced LED-product calls for a special attention due to the obvious consumer benefits, which includes substantial energy saving. LED bulbs consume 2 times less electricity than fluorescent lamps and 8 times less than incandescent bulbs. LED from China guarantees long service life compared to traditional light sources. For example, the service life of LED lamps can be up to 30,000 hours, they have a high luminous efficiency (close to the solar spectrum). LEDs perform well when working at low temperatures, to be more precise they have a wide operating temperature range (-20C to + 50C). Built-in energy-saving lamp ballast provides a discharge frequency to 50 kHz (30-50 thousand times per second), which is not noticeable to the human eye, and therefore under such conditions it feels more comfortable. Large LED light surface scatters light, thereby reducing the contrasts of light and eye tiredness.
According to the experts opinion, the flexibility of light is one of the undoubted benefits of products category LED from China due to the ability of LEDs to create a wide range of shades and glow. Lamps themselves can have any shape, which is beneficial for the room design. Not the least of the advantages of LED – is, of course, the absence of harmful substances and easy recycling process (can’t say that about fluorescent light bulbs).
According to the results of various scientific research and experiments, widely promoted in developed countries by consumer organizations, LED products and lighting devices received the status of the most environmentally friendly, safe and promising light sources available today. Many countries one after another impose restrictions or almost prohibit the sale and use of incandescent lamps, which obviously plays into the hands of the companies producing and supplying LEDs. As a result LED from China marches by leaps and bounds over the globe and this is not surprising.
As can be seen from the history, LED industry began to develop in China more than 35-40 years ago, around the turn of the 70s of the past century. So far in China about seven thousand producers are actively involved in the production of electrical goods that can be combined under the concept LED from China. The volumes of production going for export, calculated in terms of money is in billions of US dollars, making the country the global market leader in the production of LEDs.
Mass production of energy saving lamps in China conventionally dated “1995”.
In today’s China the production of such light sources is widespread. The industry is developing in accordance with the requirements of the modern market. Tracing the path of LED from China for many decades, it can be acknowledged that, as a result, the country has managed to create a complete industrial chain of goods relating to this segment. Peoples Republic of China has become a major producer and exporter of LED products, and the share of LED-products exported from China to the international market is growing.
Due to the increase of the use of LEDs by international customers more chances opened for Chinese companies. Foreign market participants also take this into an account. Nowadays in China grow production sites of such monsters as Philips, General Electric, Camelion, Linel, Nakai, Osram.
However, besides the mentioned brand-companies in China, there are national major LED manufacturers, the distinguishing feature of which is a long experience in cooperation with foreign customers. The greatest concentration of factories distinguishes the eastern and southern provinces and the area adjacent to Shanghai.
To the present date, UGL Corporation Limited has accumulated positive experience of cooperation with the manufacturers of LED products in China. We managed the contracts, which included export of LED from China to Russia and Canada, we are knowledgeable about market trends and specifics of Chinese factories, also have close business relations with more than 80 Chinese manufacturing enterprises specializing in LED. The range of products delivered with the participation of our company in the market of Russia and CIS countries, includes LED lamps and LED panel lights, garlands and outdoor lighting (projectors, screens, street lights).
