Environmentally friendly energy efficient LED tube light output increasing, but is still facing difficulties widespread use. LED manufacturers are actively increasing the output of LED lighting products, which this year has just launched a product --- LED Fluorescent (FL) Tube --- has been output range. According to the latest report of NPD Display Search LED Lighting Marketand Forecast Report, LED lamp 2013 's international market share will reach 6 %, and will rise to 22.3% by 2016. FL lamp output in 2013 will be 23,000 million, the 2016 is expected to increase to 79,100 ten thousand.
NPD Display Search LED analyst Steven Sher said: "LED lighting provides innovative lighting, and effectively reduces energy consumption especially in the areas of power shortage, LED lamp will most likely be popular, and LED lighting equipment will be widely around the world."
In Japan, the U.S. and Europe LED tube light output continued to increase. As the market newborns, LEDFL clearly not the first choice of consumers, but it is still a growing market for the following reasons.
LED tube light is considered a green product because it does not use mercury in the manufacturing process. LED tube lights can save 50 % power factor between 0.9-0.99 while T8FL only 0.7. LED tube lights are suitable for replacement of old lamps or basement office use, since these areas often require 24 hours lights, energy saving is essential.
However, challenges remain, especially the problem of high cost, which has become the most important issue will be the promotion of a vintage lamp LEDFL alternatives facing the process, because, after all, old-fashioned lamp lower prices. However, LED manufacturers are trying to narrow the price difference between the two. One way is to design a product suitable for most LED lighting power supply module. In 2013, some of the power module manufacturers to design a new product to the MR-16, A-Lamp and LED tube light use, making the cost of these products decreased by 10%.
Sher added: "The market has already launched a number of different types of LED tube lights, including different shapes, rated power, length, color and lighting features, but due to the lack of standard specifications, the consumer is difficult to accurately choose the most suitable."
