Global Handset Flash LED Modules Market 2017-2021
About Handset Flash LED Modules
Handsets consist of two types of photo flash LEDs, namely xenon flash and white LEDs. Xenon flash is used in both film and standalone digital cameras. White LED illumination is mostly used in camera phones. LEDs are faster than xenon flash and also enable flash lighting in the video mode, which is not possible with xenon flash. Flash LEDs are brighter and provide two types of lighting: blue LED and white LED. Both these lightings use Indium Gallium Nitride (InGaN). In flash applications, LEDs operate on a pulse current, which is a brief burst of direct current (DC).
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global handset flash LED modules market to grow at a CAGR of 21.26% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global handset flash LED modules market for 2017-2021. The report presents a detailed picture of the market by way of study, synthesis, and summation of data from multiple sources.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Handset Flash LED Modules Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global handset flash LED modules market: Cree, EPISTAR, EVERLIGHT, Lumileds, OSRAM, and SAMSUNG.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: SEMILEDS, Seoul Semiconductor, and LG Innotek.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Handsets with front flash LED modules. Cameras are one of the most used features of the smartphones. Consumers look to buy smartphones with good camera features. To cater to the consumer needs, smartphone manufacturers have started providing more attention to the camera specifications, including front flash LED modules and LED power consumption. For instance, in April 2017, Sony released Sony Xperia XA1 Dual. It is the latest smartphone that is an excellent companion to click selfies with improved 8 MP front camera with flash LED.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is LTE migration across markets. LTE delivers faster data access and helps the operators to provide higher data speeds to consumers. LTE can deliver more data at high speed and provide a better experience to the consumer than 3G. In developed markets, the operators have to generate revenues from premium data services such as gaming, mobile video, and business apps, which necessitates high LTE bandwidth and low latency. In developing markets, LTE offers a cost-effective strategy to bring the mobile Internet to areas that had no Internet access earlier.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Design of flash LED. The handset flash LED module vendors face high entry barriers in optical design. Handset flash LED modules should achieve a high level of brightness, and these LEDs should illuminate light uniformly at the edges in order to render the color efficiently. The demand for thinner and lighter smartphones increases the pressure to reduce the sizes of handset flash LED modules. Maintaining luminous intensity and reducing the size of flash LEDs is another design challenge faced by handset flash LED module vendors.
