The market penetration of LED lamps and lanterns will reach 16.8% in 2015

The good prospect for the development of LED lighting industry enables people to have confidence in the LED lighting market. Under the condition of the energy shortage in the 21st century and national government support to promote energy conservation and environmental protection policies, many enterprises continuously increase investment and support in the LED lighting market. At first, it was widely used in LED outdoor lighting such as road lighting, landscape lighting and so on. With the rapid development of LED lighting lamps and lanterns, the application of LED lighting lamps and lanterns had promoted to be used in the field with huge potential, such as LED indoor lighting (the ordinary household lighting), commercial lighting, etc.
Now LED lamps and lanterns are being widely applied to civil lighting areas. Although LED lighting is mainly given priority to road lights and commercial lighting in the market, LED panel lights and LED tube, with the functions of dimming and color modulation, have attracted the people’s attention. The price is still an obstacle for LED lamps. As the main factors to stop the promotion of LED lighting, the high prices have kept this new type of energy saving and environmental protection lamps and lanterns outside the civilian market. According to the insider’s introduction, LDE lighting lamps and lanterns are used sapphire substrate as a chip substrate and must use gold to create electric conduction; all of these advantages make it no doubt to become a "noble" lamps and lanterns.
The market penetration of LED lighting market is expected to reach 16.8% in 2015. A report also noted that under the government's stimulus policy, the application permeability of LED in the fields of household lighting and street lighting will be improved, such as mainland China's 12th five-year plan, and Taiwan’s LED subsidy policy, these policy benefits also include commercial lighting. LED bulb and LED fluorescent tube are growing year by year in Japanese market, the main reason is that since the earthquake in March 2011 after, the Japanese government launched the subsidy policy and increased energy saving consciousness. At the same time, many new LED suppliers are going to join the business war, and soon began to produce. With the calculation of 500 x500 micron chip size, the overall supply of LED lighting grew 41% in 2011, but by contrast, the demand only grew 10%, thus furnishing the oversupply of 2011. Anyway, the competition is good for consumers to buy high quality LED lamps with lower price.

The scale of lighting industry will grow to 500 billion Yuan in 2015

From the 18th Guangzhou International lighting fair, we know that the entire lighting industry scale of China is close to 300 billion Yuan last year. This year it will grow to 300 billion to 400 billion Yuan, and it is expected to increase to 500 billion Yuan by 2015, the future LED production and market demand will be higher.
After suffering a short winter last year, the growth of the market has made LED recovery this year. In the first half of this year, according to organizers, most LED enterprises operating in good condition, many companies look good on the LED market, and they have made expansion plan. Despite the good market prospects, the problem of excess production capacity still exists. Industry experts said that the threshold of LED lighting industry is low, and the government also provides high subsidies and preferential tax policy. All of these factors make a large number of enterprises enter into LED lighting industry, and then resulting in low-end products severe overcapacity.
A number of small and medium enterprises and small workshops have a large "damage" to the market.
LED excess capacity is mainly due to too many companies. China has more than 7000 registered LED companies, plus some not registered small workshops and other working groups, it is countless for those engaged in LED lighting industry enterprise. The existence of many small and medium enterprises and small workshops make low-end products serious excess capacity, which can lead to a vicious price competition. It is known that in just two years, the prices of LED lighting products had experienced a "roller coaster", the market price from the original 180 Yuan has low to 20 ~ 30 Yuan. At the same time, there are a lot of low-cost low-quality products sell for 10 ~ 15 Yuan on the market (such as cheap LED tube and LED bulb). A CEO of well-known enterprise said anxiously, now the price of LED lighting is lower, but the quality is worse, the LED enterprise does not agree with the value of it at all. He believes that only when the companies and consumers agree with the value of LED, they can accept the price naturally; we cannot blindly rely on low prices to win the market.
Future market leaves to the enterprises that have brand and independent innovation ability.
It is known that 80% of China's industrial lighting will be replaced by LED products in the next eight years (such as LED tunnel light and LED high bay light), the replace period for lighting products have come. At the same time, there are about 30% ~ 70% of small and medium LED enterprises will be eliminated by the market. Guangzhou international lighting fair is to guide the industry to the healthy and sustainable development. LED is a revolution of light source technology, the future of the market must belong to those enterprises with brand, scale, channel and innovational products.

The rapid development of China’s unknown LCD manufacturers makes Samsung under pressure

According to the Reuters’ reported on September 18, Chinese flat-panel display manufacturers, once were considered as the second-class participants of global LCD market, now makes the industry’s great manufacturers such as Samsung and LG display envy. When South Korea giants were busily developing a new generation of organic light emitting diode (OLED) TV, little-known Chinese companies have started selling another display, it is clearer than the standard LCD, cheaper than OLED, which is Ultra HD (UHD) display.
Data research firm IHS said UHD market barely exist before 2012, only about 33000 UHD TVs were sold among the total sales of 200 million LCD TVs. But ever since then, UHD TV shipments soared about 20 times, and it thanks to China. People all like to assemble UHD display screen with mouse and keyboard to play games. Chinese consumers who want bright and clear images, but can't afford to buy the OLED screen manufactured by LG and Samsung are considering buying UHD.
In the long run, OLED has huge potential, high resolution, enough thin screen, can also bend, all these advantages make it has strong competitiveness. But if consider from the price, we still have some difficulties to let OLED enter the Chinese market. In China, 55 inch UHD model sells about $1800.But by contrast, the sales price of the same size of OLED TV that Samsung electronics sales is about $10000. Including Samsung’s CCTV products, its price is always higher than other ordinary brands.
By comparing to the growing threat of South Korea display manufacturers, Chinese UHD manufacturers are enjoying the most lucrative profit margins in the industry. By the second quarter of this year, Beijing Oriental technology had achieved 8.9% operating profit margins, and China star photoelectric technology (CSOT), an agency of China's largest TV maker, TCL Company, also reported a 9.6% profit margin. By contrast, Japan's panel pioneer enterprise, Sharp only faint the profit margin of 0.5%. And the world's first LCD maker LG display also released the profit margin of 5.6%.
As South Korea beyond the panel pioneer Japan before, at the beginning of the 21st century, China's market develops rapidly. Securities investment analyst Nam Dae jong said that China is doing very well, so far this year, their momentum probably will last for at least about one year, they have discovered the potential of this market, as well as larger rivals. Nam said, "Samsung and LG made a strategic error decision that they ignore the UHD potential market, and focus on mobile phone manufactures and notebook research, so they will need quite a long time to catch up".

Chinese government clearly put forward that the LED lighting industrial production was grown by an average of about 30%, it will reach 450 billion CHY in 2015 (including 180 billion CHY in LED lighting application products).
Technical performance has made remarkable progress; innovative applications are on a large scale promotion
In recent years, China constantly improves the luminous efficiency of LED device, blue-ray device technology levels has been increased to 120 lm/W, red light device is 70 lm/W, and green light device is 140 lm/W, these devices has reached the international advanced level. Silicon substrate technology makes a breakthrough and reaches to 120 lm/W. China's independent innovation Metal Organic sources have achieved large-scale supply which account for more than 60% of domestic demand. In the epitaxial chip link of the highest technical content, the biggest equipment investment and the most competitive patent, China’s independent innovation of the sapphire substrate can meet more than 50% of the market demands.
In recent years, China’s LED self-dependent innovation products apply to a number of major projects, such as the 2008 Beijing Olympic stadium lighting, the 2009 Shanghai world expo venue lighting and lighting transformation of the Great Hall of the People in 2011, has entered the high technical requirements of medium/large size LED display screen backlight and other fields.
The trend of intelligent development is obvious
First, market demands have speeded up the technological progress, and the costs of production have fallen dramatically. Now all countries are promoting the use of LED lighting in the field of automotive, street, corridor and so on. We can find LED street light everywhere when we go outside. With an annual rate of 30% drop in production costs, it has greatly accelerated the process for LED lamps to replace traditional lamps.

Samsung will launch another smart watch next year

On September 17, Samsung has showed the Galaxy Gear smart watch in Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA), lead ahead of the Apple Corporation in this kind of product’s competition. But, according to a report by South Korea Digital Times that Samsung is still accelerating the speed to improve the product, and plans to launch another version of the smart watch in early 2014.
Quoted from an anonymous industry officials, Samsung’s new version of the smart watch will have GPS function, with better battery life, and also will be able to synchronize with other Android devices. When Samsung released the first Galaxy Gear smart watch on September 4th, industry analysts have criticized this product because of its only one day battery life. In addition, Galaxy Gear does not have GPS function, and only can be used with Galaxy Note 3; this factor also makes analysts have little confidence in its selling.
Online Forbes magazine writer Larry Magid said, from his early trial Galaxy Gear's experience, the limited battery life is one of the largest deficiencies about this kind of equipment. He said: "the users have to remember charging every day, and must remember to take the portable power bank during the trip." If Galaxy Gear can equip with the large capacity lithium batteries, then its standby time can be longer, and problem can be solved in the meantime.
Samsung is known by quickly responding to the changing market and catering to consumer’s tastes, so the industry pointed out that the Galaxy Gear brought the overall impression that it is not only Samsung’s one commercial effort, but also an attempt in this field. Despite it has some shortcomings, when the Galaxy Gear comes to market in October this year in the United States, it will sell for $299, which means that this product may be the main aim to appeal to early adopters.
Samsung is committed to improving the Galaxy Gear’s battery life, but no matter for the Galaxy Gear or other smart watch products, the real potential may come from the applications and services which can run on these devices. Galaxy Gear can run some software applications like eBay, Pocket, RunKeeper, Path and Line. Samsung’s self-developed communication service AppsChatOn will also be landed on the new platform. Besides, if Galaxy Gear can be used with audio equipment, then it can meet more people’s different tastes.
Industry insiders said, if Samsung can continue to collect a series of attractive services for the next version of smart watch, plus the necessary hardware improvements, then the new product can have more chance to get the welcome of mainstream consumers, not just for early adopters.

Nokia: What else can we do after selling mobile phone business?

Although Microsoft has spent $7.2 billion in buying Nokia mobile phone business and a series of patent portfolio, but the dying old cell phone company will continue to focus on their maps and network technology. For this series of changes, Nokia's current chairman and interim CEO Risto Siilasmaa, takes optimistic attitude toward this, and said: "this is the starting point of Nokia's next 150 stories."
150 years ago, the enterprise from Finland made a fortune with their own paper manufacture, shoemaking, production of tires and other business, and finally got into the mobile phone manufactures field that made her famous. In a recent media interview, Siilasmaa expressed a view on the topic about specialized equipment and services department acquired by Microsoft, and the influences on 32000 employees. "After leaving the mobile devices and services fields, Nokia will become very different, but it is still a powerful company, and have a healthy financial performance. Nokia still has three mainstay businesses, includes Nokia Solutions and Networks, Here map and Advanced Technologies. Besides, each of them is the leader in the field of technological innovation." Siilasmaa said.
In short, after stripping the mobile phone business, Nokia will continue to focus on the business development of network, Here map and Advanced Technology. Among them, the Nokia solutions and network company is mainly responsible for the sales of communications equipment, R&D of mobile broadband; Here map belong to one of Nokia's long-term plans, the service has become the default map provider of Microsoft Windows Phone, and Nokia hopes the service can further offensive to the vehicle-mounted navigation field; Advanced Technology development actually is equivalent to Nokia’s future products R&D department.
In the past, Nokia has established a set of fairly strong mobile and data patents portfolio, Nokia hopes to be able to take more profit from this in the future."Previously, we have successfully established a whole set of patent and technology authorization process, our company plans to take use of this advantage to increase revenue and profit." Siilasmaa said.
In fact, in the current deal between Microsoft and Nokia, Microsoft has cost $2.17 billion to buy Nokia's patent portfolio. Currently, the main work of Siilasmaa is to reshape the Nokia with no mobile phone business, and find a new CEO for the company. After losing the Smartphone business, Nokia Here map technology is perhaps the only link between her and consumers. At the same time, Nokia’s pride brand: Lumia and Asha are now owned by Microsoft. We all love the large capacity lithium batteries Lumia Smartphone, but now the company cannot ensure that Microsoft will continue to add Nokia’s genes on these two brands. Microsoft’s surface makes users can operate the PC without mouse and keyboard, we hope Microsoft can launch a series of innovative Smart-phones.

Samsung will launch GalaxyNote3, new tablet and GalaxyGear smart watch, Sony also will launch the new 5 inch Honami mobile phones and the first lens module on the same day.
Recently, the greater China's vice President and general manager of lighting solution department, Chandra Vaidyanathan said “the future world needs to go toward the three directions of more lighting, more efficient lighting and digital lighting. The development of LED and control technology can reduce energy consumption to 20%. In 2015, LED lighting will own a 45% share of the global lighting market. Especially in China, with the government’s strong promotion, this proportion will be bigger." Though there are many LED lighting products appear in the market, such as LED indoor lighting and LED decorative lighting, many new innovative products will be invented in the future.
In order to meet the Chinese market opportunity, Chandra, Philips lighting is continuously invest in China to build a "end-to-end" customer value chain that takes the customer as the center, from market research, products design and develop, manufacturing to marketing. And accelerate the steps of strategic transformation from lighting products parts manufacturer to integrate lighting solution provider, create a closer local market business model. "These are in order to achieve the goal that LED business accounted for 45% of overall volume in 2015." Chandra said.
At present, the OLED is a hotspot of current market, its brightness is higher than LED, the thickness is thinner and maybe it will replace LED display screen in the future. But the China r&d director and institute director of Philips, klaasVegter thinks OLED is still in the early development stage, there are more development spaces for it, but the LED enters into “full age” is the development trend of today's lighting.

The lightings have various kinds of styles and different colors. When you decide to choose household lighting, you should not only consider household style or lamps shape and price, but also handle the relationship between the lamps and their use. For example, you can use LED decorative lighting if you want to create a colorful interior zone.
The main function of bedroom is to rest, but not a single sleep area. On the choice of lamp model and color selection, you should mainly care about how to create a quiet and warmth atmosphere. You’d better use indirect or diffuse lighting and choose light-warm color. You can use wall lamp or table lamp to replace the interior overhead light. In addition, you can also install the footlights under the bed in order to avoid strong light stimulation during the night. There are so many LED indoor lightings for you to choose in the market, the only thing you need to do is to select the suitable one.
The lighting in kitchen and bathroom requires high brightness, but these two places are the most easily for you to ignore. You should install kitchen lighting in the location that can avoid steam and smoke. It’s easy to wash and corrosion resistant if you use appropriate glass or enamel lamp shade. You’d better use energy saving lamp in the bathroom to avoid the water vapor condenses on the lamps and then extend the service life.
Daily maintenance of lamps
To maintain the bright and clean lighting source, so as to achieve the purpose of saving energy, you need to follow these three points in daily maintenance: first, clean the lighting lamps regularly. It is easy to make the dust accumulation in tubes and then affect the output efficiency if you do not clean for a long time. We suggest you to clean them once at least 3 months. Secondly, change the old incandescent lamps regularly. When the service lives of the fluorescent tubes and incandescent lamps reached 80%, the output beam can be reduced to about 85%. Therefore, you should change the old lamps after it has used for a long time.

Touch is the future of computer

Julie Larson, chairman of the Windows product R&D department, said the computer keyboard and mouse operation will be simpler in the future once she joined an interview, touch will be a part of the PC’s total user experience. "Due to cost considerations, PC manufacturers now offer PC products mostly traditional without touch, but I believe the touch will become a very important measure of PC in the future." She said: "we have seen the development trend and potential of the touch screen PC is very strong, I can't imagine how bad it would be if we do not have touch screen PC. Once you experience, it is difficult for you to use the traditional PC with no touch"
Truly, now we have accepted the phone and tablet touch operation, so that we would subconsciously use hands to click the computer screen after we had just finished using the cell phone. After clicked the screen, you suddenly realized that you are just using ordinary notebook. So we can only have a helpless smile, and then took up the acquainted mouse. As Julie said, now the cost of the touch screen is very high, PC manufacturers will not give up the current greater market instead of pursuing perfect experience. But it conflicts with the user’s need, the user always like to pursue a better experience and higher cost performance. As for now, though Microsoft had launched Windows 8 computer product with better user experience, most of users do not have better experience equipment.
Due to the price fails to meet consumer expectations, many users start to solve the problem of touch by themselves, technicians began to DIY their computers, transform their own computers with a touch screen. With the use of audio and video equipment, they could have the better use experience. Another part of the users try to find all kinds of auxiliary peripherals, such as touch mouse, touchpad with gestures, but it still has a certain distance to the perfect touch experience, cannot better experience the charm of Windows 8. Later, some manufacturers began to launch more perfect touch solutions, the digital equipment like Windows 8 stylus recently appeared on the market. Some users had gotten the firsthand experience and wrote a lot of feelings. Its use experience is the same as official propaganda, and the touch operation is perfect that can be able to reach the level of finger operation, even may be better in more sophisticated operation.
Believe as Julie said, touch will be an important criteria to measure PC in the future.

McAfee inserts biological identification into cloud storage

In 2011, Intel acquired MacAfee with $7.68 billion. After that, Intel takes some steps to apply this security company's assets to the chip level. The combined product is DeepSafe. A security layer in the Intel chips allows McAfee malware protection software to identify and block some security threats, or analyze potential hidden behavior of malicious software. This application would improve the safety index of computer products.
Intel is introducing new ideas to ensure the safety of the public cloud. Intel will provide a service that the users would be allowed to access online files after face recognition and voice recognition. Intel's McAfee will add a product called "LiveSafe". This product provides 1 GB online storage and it can be accessed through biological identification. LiveSafe has a web-based management console, it can identify the users by face recognition, speech recognition, or entering the PIN number. In addition, LiveSafe includes anti-virus and other security features. McAfee compared the service to the online storage in the cloud, and users can store sensitive information there. You can access the service with tablets, smart phones and PC. The identification schemes of all sorts of digital equipments are different.
The functions of biological Identification and identity protection bundled together can add an extra layer of protection to Intel’s chip. Audio and video equipments are crucial to PC. A PC needs to configure a network camera and an Intel processor to use voice and face recognition. Biological identification is not all effective in Mac computers, mobile devices and the PC with AMD’s x86 processors. But the users can access the files after entering right PIN number without biological identification. LiveSafe will also compatible with Android and apple's iOS operating system in the future. The price of the software is $19.99 for 12 months if you install it in new PC. After that, the users need to pay $79.99 a year. For current users, the software for 12 months subscription fee is $79.99.
McAfee’s vice president of global consumer business department Gary Davis said that security files stored in the McAfee data center. We need to make sure that we put the files in absolute safety place. McAfee software, like “Total Protection”, has a function to store files in local storage’s safe place. LiveSafe will not synchronize the security files that created in local storage. Intel said it will use the McAfee's assets to integrate security functions into chip level, so that their products are different from competitors' products. Some functions will be embedded into the atom chip to protect the security of smart phones and tablets.

The collocation design of coffee shop lighting

In the hotel, people prefer to stay in the coffee shop. When interior designers design the coffee shop, they like to highlight exotic amorous feelings, with romantic warmth and comfortable. In the process of achieve a better light environment, there are many details need to be considered. A good coffee shop environment can not only attract guests in the hotel, but also become the preferred location for individual traveler to check in.
The coffee shop is indispensable in the region of the five-star hotel, and is not included in the western restaurant. Although the guests can drink coffee in the western restaurant, the taste of coffee in the coffee shop is mellow taste and the feeling is completely different. In the west, the status of coffee is like Chinese tea, a drink with national blood. So, it is necessary to provide a drinking place.
Coffee shop needs a relaxed, peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. It needs to cooperate with the dimming system. According to the area, coffee shop can be divided into three parts, and the need of light and shade degree is different. Due to the coffee shop interior room is made up of various materials, such as desktop material, the materials on the surface of chair and floor. Under the condition of same illumination, the reflectance on all sorts of material surface is different, and its brightness changes different, too. Besides, the brightness of the surface will affect the whole space’s light environment effect. If the reflectance on the surface is low, then the intensity of illumination should be higher. And it is opposite if the reflectance on the surface is high. At the same time, it is important to note the different intensities of illumination between smallpox, metope, desktop and floor. Or the visual will feel drab. Desktop illumination, with candles or energy saving lamps, can completely meet the lighting requirements. Using candles can create a hazy, quiet atmosphere, make the environment has more daydream space.
Interior designer will selected suitable artistic adornment for space carefully, such as sculpture, relief, tapestry, water curtain, etc. Although the interior light environment will be darker, we usually use LED indoor lighting to bright the art decorations. Some manufacturers have begun to research professional use lighting source. There are so many lighting lamps for works of art to choose. We can use color temperature about 3000 k halogen lamp to irradiate relief and hanging decoration of tapestry. Water curtain has a high flexibility, we used underwater lamp, collocation of LED decorative lightings to build subtle effect of light color changing. It is important to pay attention to the concealment of the light source that we only can see the light without seeing the lamps.
