“Growing use of LED materials in general lighting is a prime factor driving the growth of the LED materials market.”

The global LED materials market is projected to reach USD 12.55 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2016 to 2021. The growth is fueled by the rising demand for LED materials for LED for residential LED applications under the general lighting application segment.

Volatility in raw material prices resulting in lower demand for LED materials and high initial cost of LEDs can curtail the growth of the LED materials market.

“Wafers is the fastest-growing material type segment during the forecast period”

Wafers segment is the fastest-growing LED material segment, in terms of value, in the LED materials market. Typically, gallium arsenide and gallium nitride are used to develop wafers. Gallium nitride LEDs are based on thin layers of gallium nitride grown on other materials such as silicon or sapphire. Many manufacturing companies are moving towards the production of 6-inch and 8-inch wafer production as it is more cost-effective compared to the production of 4-inch wafer production.

“Rising demand in Asia-Pacific is the major driver of the LED materials market“

Asia-Pacific is the fastest-growing market for LED materials, in terms of value. Growing manufacturing industries, high economic growth rate, cheap labor, and increasing foreign investments make it a manufacturing hub of the world. The growth of various industries such as automotive and building & construction in Asia-Pacific will boost the demand for LEDs.
