The 60W LED bulb, each region showed stable prices of basic down trend. The United States showed a 2.6% rise in price, but the original commodity prices remained stable or showed a downward trend, mainly due to the fact that many high-priced items return to the market which could lead to a price rise.
Everychina believes that the first tier brand products spurred various regional markets to increase standards and speed up the integration. And intelligent lighting will also become one of the major trends in lighting products. However, the intelligent lighting market still faces hurdles in price and consumer acceptance which prevent it from becoming popular. Therefore, how to achieve a balance of performance and price are also the lighting manufacturers currently in dire need of solving problems.
Everychina’s LED industry analyst expects the LED price continue to slide due to the fact that Chinese manufacturers are increasingly taking market share from other countries’ suppliers. Also the process of LED technology is rapid, and there is a fierce price competition among the manufacturers. Everychina believes that LED lights’ price reduction can encourage and enable the adoption of new technologies because the LED prices are still too high for consumers.
