UV LED Market by Technology (UV-A, UV-B, UV-C), by Application (Medical, Lithography, Electronic Device), by End-User (Healthcare, Residential), by Region (North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, South America) – Global Forecast 2020 to 2027

UV LED Market: Summary

The Global UV LED Market is projected to reach a value of over USD 2.1 billion by 2027 at a CAGR of around 20.7%.

UV Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) refers to a solid state devices, which helps to produce light when the electrical current permits to flow from the positive node to the negative node. Whereas, it can convert electrical energy into an ultraviolet light. However, operating temperature of these light is below 100 degrees. It used in the electronic devices for the purpose of exposing PCB to air. As well as these are extensive used for the purification, indoor gardening, sterilization, and medical phototherapy.

Hence, in ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the UV LED is witness to play a significant in demand to disinfect the surface of hospital area mostly the place where patients are being admitted. These may lead to increase the market growth in the forecast period.

UV LED Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Driver:

  • Increasing Adoption of LED products

With the increasing adoption of LED products is witness to boost the growth of the market in the projected period. Whereas, the Minamata Convention on Mercury is an international treaty which is designed for the protection of human health as well as surrounding form the anthropogenic emission and releases mercury compounds. However, the UV LED is a semiconductor device which also limits the use of mercury as well as the energy efficient. One of the initiatives has been taken by the Osram (Opto Semiconductors) of UNIQUE project for the growth of UV LEDs for disinfection and also for the ecofriendly purification of water using LED based UVC.

Hence, the industries and the government are also supporting the growth for adoption of the market across various sectors. These will lead the growth of UV LED market in the forecast period.

Market Restraints:

  • Heavy Installation Cost

One of the major key concern of the UV LED market is the heavy installation cost which may hinder the growth of the market. Whereas, the UV LED technology limit for providing the desirable results as well as must expensive than other products may create a negative impact for the growth of the market. Also, the factors such as high cost of installation and the investment needs for the production is expected to hamper the growth of UV LED market in the forecast period.

Hence, it is projected with the ongoing research and development may lead to boost the market performance to enhance the desirable outputs.
