OVER 100 CHINA-BASED LED PACKAGING FIRMS TO GO OUT OF BUSINESS IN 2014
More than 100 relatively small China-based LED packagers will be forced out of business in 2014, and the number is expected to increase to over 300 in 2015. Economies of scale have also made the larger China-based LED packaging firms more competitive compared to smaller ones. The large makers account for most of the total capacity expansion among all China-based LED packaging houses. MLS, for example, is increasing its monthly LED packaging capacity to 22 billion chips at the end of 2014 and further to 30 billion units in 2015. International LED vendors including Cree, Philips Lumileds Lighting, Seoul Semiconductor, and Osram have either set up factories in China or increased outsourcing to China-based makers, placing further pressure on China- based packagers to merge or go out of business.
