2 ABOUT THE REPORT The LED and LED phosphor markets are growing considerably, and this growth is expected to continue in the upcoming years However, both LED and phosphor firms must quickly address consumer perceptions that LEDs are dull, cold, and not affordable if they are to maximize growth and thus their potential profitability NanoMarkets believes that current consumer concerns over the cost of lighting could end up driving LEDs and phosphors down the same path CFLs (compact fluorescent lamp) have gone. Therefore, LED lighting and phosphor firms must offer lighting technologies that encourage consumers to embrace LED lighting because of its efficiency gains and differentiating feature, thus making cost inconsequential The rapid growth of the phosphor market presents real opportunities for phosphor firms to innovate and establish novel IP. While the LED market may take a little longer than originally thought to achieve true maturity, it will get there as long as phosphor firms continue to offer novel yellow, red, and hybrid phosphor solutions at affordable prices www.nanomarkets.net ©2014 NanoMarkets, LC
