The rapid growth of LED lighting technology has changed the global lighting market in recent years. LED lighting has a higher brightness and consumes less energy, as well as a longer life, which attracts that industrial, commercial or home lighting consumers increasingly use LED lights. |
Ever since Thomas Edison commercialized the incandescent, the General Electric Company (General Electric) International Lighting has became the market leader, but also saw the LED lighting business’s strong growth in changing market environment. With the expansion of the product portfolio, market share and penetration of strategic acquisitions, GE's LED business benefited a lot from the research and development.
GE Lighting is a part of GE Energy Management, its contributions is $ 7.4 billion in 2012 annual $ 147 billion revenues.
Like incandescent filament, why the LED lights glow is based on light-emitting diode (light emitting diode, ie LED), and light-efficient of LED lights is higher than compact fluorescent lamps’ 60-70lm / W and incandescent’s 30lm / W luminous efficiency , it has reached 150lm / W, which greatly improves the light quality particularly security in a wide range of lighting conditions such as the streets and parks.
In addition, LED lights consume less energy than compact fluorescent lamps and incandescent lamps and is less harm to the environment. 8-12 watt LED lights provide the same luminance as 15-watt compact fluorescent or 60 watt incandescent lighting. Less energy consumption and consequent tariff reduction is a significant advantage, especially the LED flood light is widely used in commercial buildings where lighting accounts for a large part of the energy consumption.
The rapid growth of LED lighting market is also reflected form LED business of GE Lighting in recent years. LED lighting was grown by 24% in 2011,the value was 35%in 2012, GE expects this strong growth will continue this year.
General Electric Company use the heat sink, the optical element and other control systems to integrate LED chip and the package to create efficient LED lighting device. In addition to sales of LED lighting products, General Electric Company also provides customized lighting solutions, delivering project management,such these Value-added services also help GE Lighting's LED products to increase sales.
Lead lighting as a medium-sized enterprises, mainly manufactures LED indoor and outdoor lighting as business objective and adopts high quality LED chip, radiator, light and other materials to build more energy saving LED lighting, just few years, the company has grown into high-tech LED manufacturers ,the professional development and production with professional technology and cheap prices and considerable service have been praising by the U.S. and European and other countries, browsing www.lead-lighting.com to more vividly and specifically understand LED lighting products.
