LED Taiwan to Co-Locate with Taiwan International Lighting Show in 2014

SEMI announced today that starting in 2014, LED Taiwan, the only LED manufacturing-focused exposition in Taiwan, will co-locate with the Taiwan International Lighting Show, Taiwan’s largest solid state lighting exhibition and conference. This new combination exhibition platform is expected to provide both attendees and exhibitors the world’s most comprehensive view of solid state lighting technology and products, from manufacturing to applications. The new co-located LED Taiwan (March 20-22) and Taiwan International Lighting Show (March 20-23) event will be held at TWTC Nangang Exhibition Hall in Taiwan.

Taiwan is the world’s leader in LED manufacturing with 41 LED fabs representing over 21 percent of the world’s capacity — more than any other region (according to SEMI Opto/LED Fab Forecast report). Meanwhile, worldwide LED epitaxy capacity is expected to reach 2.4 million in 2013 (4” equivalent per month), with Taiwan LED makers accounting for the largest share of capacity (around 28 percent) with their facilities in Taiwan and China. According to the analyst firm, Research and Markets, the solid state lighting market is expected to reach nearly $60 billion by 2018, at a CAGR of 18.7 percent from 2013 to 2018. The Asia-Pacific region will account for approximately 50 percent of the total, making the combined Taiwan event ideally positioned to serve this rapidly growing market.

From epitaxy, chips, packaging to end applications, Taiwan has developed a comprehensive LED supply chain that has built a wealth of knowledge and know-how. Business opportunities abound with high demands for equipment, parts/components and materials. The new co-located event is the best LED procurement platform in Asia. The event is an excellent opportunity to learn new trends and seize business opportunities, with renewed opportunities to bridge the LED manufacturing and LED lighting supply chains.

Highlights of LED Taiwan 2014 (March 20-22) include:
