Using Reverse Cost Analysis to Overcome Performance and Price Hurdles in LED Manufacturing

FARMINGTON, Conn., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The light emitting diode (LED) market, despite exciting innovative devices driven by technological advances and ecological/energy-saving concerns, still face challenges in overcoming performance/price limitations and in attracting widespread consumption.


According to a new report published by ElectroniCast, high brightness (HB) LEDs face the challenge of creating definitive positions in the illumination market, as competing lighting solutions are readily available and generally accepted. While this does not limit the potential success of HB-LEDs, it does create some challenges.

The total worldwide consumption value of HB-LED Driver ICs reached $1.79 billion in 2012. This consumption value is expected to grow at an average annual rate of 27 percent between 2012 and 2019, reaching $9.59 billion in the year 2019.

Global Information (GII), with partner firm System Plus Consulting, is also pleased to release two new reverse-cost analysis reports for the Philips L-Prize A19 LED lamp and the OSRAM Oslon Square LED. "Reverse-cost analysis" disassembles these LED devices into its component parts in order to identify the core technology within and calculate the cost to manufacture the device. The results of these studies can be used to pre-analyze the cost of potentially expensive projects at a Research and Development level, to enhance the negotiation power of purchasing managers, and to benchmark competitors' products.

The "Philips L-Prize A19 LED Lamp: Reverse Engineering & Costing Report" provides a full technical and economic analysis of the L-Prize® lamp in order to estimate today's manufacturing cost. The report includes detailed photos, material analysis, LED assembly description, detailed bill-of-material, assembly process flow, and manufacturing cost and selling price estimation.
