UV LED is a new journey led, is considered to be one of the next generation light source. Six months, UV LED has become the LED forum, led laboratories and led market one of the new favorites, coupled with water Minamata convention, energy-saving concessions and other policies to promote power, more domestic and foreign enterprises to accelerate the layout, UV led market is about to explode.
Set Bang Advisory led Research Center (ledinside) in the latest release of the "2017 UV LED and Module Application Market report, noted that UV LED market value in 2017 will grow to 288 million U.S. dollars (equivalent to RMB 1.956 billion yuan), 2020 to look at 526 million U.S. dollars (equivalent to RMB 3.573 billion yuan), 2015-2020 compound growth rate (CAGR) up to 34%. To ultraviolet led packaging revenue, Japan and South Korea to stabilize the top five manufacturers, in the order of Japanese-Asian, nitride semiconductors, Seoul Viosys, LG Innotek and Ushio/epitex.
At home and abroad policies, the promotion of equipment and so on, UV LED market penetration rate greatly improved, according to Ledinside observation, UV LED according to application, mainly for uv-aled application light curing market, in which the need for high radiation illuminance lithography, high uniformity of the exposure machine application market most popular , some special curing market demand is gradually rising.
In addition, Ledinside estimates, benefiting from the uv-cled technology upgrade, 2017 manufacturers will launch uv-cled products. Among them, the flow of water sterilization still need to wait for the ripe time, consumer products, air cleaners and air-conditioning products, static water sterilization and other markets, the opportunity to take off first.
Review the first half of the year, with the strong combination of enterprises and a series of UV led new products, UV LED technology is also accelerating progress. Next may wish to look around each factory on the development of UV LED developments.

♦ Assist uv-cled Device Development, Osram and Hexatech signing strategic agreement
February 15, 2017, the world's leading ALN single crystal substrate supplier Hexatech Company announced that the company with the German Regensburg, Osram Optoelectronics Semiconductor Co., Ltd. signed two strategic agreements. These agreements include a long-term supply agreement and a number of Hexatech intellectual property Rights (IP) licenses, the former involving the direct support of ALN (ALN) substrates as a Hexatech company's 2-inch (diameter) substrate development project. The long-term supply commitment for Hexatech AlN (ALN) substrates directly supports Hexatech's 2-inch (diameter) substrate development plan, as well as authorizing certain Hexatech intellectual property (IP). John Goehrke, Hexatech chief executive, said Osram could accelerate the development of uv-cled devices based on Hexatech materials by authorizing Hexatech technology.
♦ Japan to expand and wafer in the field of UV LED cooperation
February 2017, Japan chemical Giant Mountain (Tokuyama) and Japan electric equipment giant Stanley Electric (Stanley Electric) decided to expand cooperation in the field of deep ultraviolet led, mountain to maintain deep ultraviolet led materials research and development, and wafer production, packaging, and product manufacturing and sales business , Stanley Electric is responsible. De Shan's deep ultraviolet led wafer production line and patent, are transferred to Stanleyelectric.
♦nitride Semiconductors and Seoul Viosys cooperate to develop uvled products
Nitride semiconductors and Seoul Viosys cooperate to jointly develop the LED, module and finished products of ultraviolet led.
According to the introduction, will be launched in 2017 275nmuv-cled products, which, single crystal packaging products can reach 13mw@150ma; four-crystal packaging products can reach 30mw@400ma. At the same time, the finished product also introduced a number of sterilization and deodorization products, but also provide wireless charging function, the company believes that the future Uvled finished products market in the consumer level will be more able to achieve the function of living.
♦ Osram Acquisition led Engininc., special lighting layout again next city
June 6, 2017, Osram issued a circular that the company will acquire the LED supplier led Engininc in San Jose, California, USA. According to the introduction, LED Engin has nearly 30 employees, annual sales of about 10 million U.S. dollars, focusing on the provision of entertainment lighting, ultraviolet, horticulture, adjustable white light and medical lighting applications, such as the super bright, ultra compact solid-state lighting solutions, its products are mainly using Osram photoelectric semiconductor LED chip.
Among them, in ultraviolet products, led Engin for industrial applications (such as printing, curing and dental market) to provide a strong UV LED.
♦ Qingdao Jason to achieve a breakthrough in technology, the release of 100mW UVC LED products
At the beginning of 2017, following the 2016 launch life of 10,000 hours 10mW UVC LED products and based on heachips health chip technology static water and mobile water sterilization module, the circle of Jason again to achieve technological breakthroughs, heavy release 100mW level of UVC LED products. It is understood that the product uses 6868 package form, the overall volume is small, but can emit 100mW 275nm deep ultraviolet. This will bring infinite imagination and application space for the design of large flow water and air sterilization scheme.
♦ Day Machine installed more high-power UV LED applications in the water purification system
In the Nepcon Japan2017 year exhibition, the UV led Japanese manufacturers day machine technology leader Gonnechun said that the current technology has been the standard product specifications, from 30mW to 45mW, in the direction of the voltage, 6V case, UV ultraviolet light has been successfully removed to enhance the efficiency, heat resistance value from 15k/w into 7k/w.
