Cheaper, Brighter, Cooler: The Need for Cost Reduction Past the Package

June 17, 2012 | State of the Market Report

Cost is the name of the game with LEDs, but most of the time, the focus is entirely on the package. We evaluated the opportunity for cost reduction through materials and technology innovation in the balance of system, including thermal management, drivers, and optics. We find that today’s technology solutions fall short of the dramatic cost reductions needed to mirror the LED package and alternate solutions are ineffective and uneconomical – presenting opportunities for technology innovation.
