San Francisco, CA, August 22, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The global Chip on Board (COB) LED market is expected to reach USD 9,179.7 million by 2020, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing urbanization and infrastructure spending are expected to be the key drivers for market growth over the forecast period. COB LEDs are energy efficient, have greater reliability and require less space. Furthermore, they offer high intensity and homogenous luminosity, which makes them suitable for high power applications. In recent times, the use of solid lighting technology as against traditional lighting has significantly led to increased adoption of COB LED.
High demand for COB LED owing to increased adoption by several lighting application segments to gain benefit over technologies such as CFL and incandescent lighting is also expected to positively impact the global market over the next six years. Furthermore, advancements in design and cost saving through economies of scale are expected to provide significant growth opportunity for the market over the forecast period. However, the complex manufacturing process and high price coupled with fluctuating global economic conditions may be a challenge for industry participants.
