Yole Predicts: In the LED Packaging World, Flip Chip Technology Is Rising

In the LED packaging world, a wind of change is blowing. A LED TV crisis, and new Chinese players have totally modified the LED industry and its supply chain. Under this context, with a high competitive environment, new challenges have been identified by Yole Développement (Yole) analysts: efficacy improvement, cost decrease … To answer to the LED market needs, companies have today to innovate their technologies and implement new solutions like Flip Chip for LED packaging.

“In 2013, LED based on Flip Chip technology represented 11% (in volume) of the overall high power LED market; such market share should reach 24% (in volume as well) by 2020”, explains Pars Mukish, Senior Market and Technology Analyst, LED, OLED & Compound Semiconductors, at Yole (Source: LED Packaging 2014 report, to be released end of September 2014).

End of September, the 4th International LED professional Symposium +Expo (LpS 2014) will take place for the second time. Located in Bregenz, Austria and targeting industrials and researchers involved in LED design and engineering, the symposium is a three-day event including conferences, workshops, networking and exhibition.

At LpS 2014, Yole will present its latest analysis, with a special focus on LED chip manufacturing and packaging. During his presentation, Pars Mukish from Yole, will highlight the recent developments dedicated to LED chip manufacturing and packaging. Yole’s analyst will detail main market trends, emerging technologies and technical challenges including packaging process steps and supply chain.

All these results are part of two technology & market reports, LED Front-End Manufacturing Trends (released in May 2014) and LED Packaging that will be released end of September 2014. “At Yole, we are daily working with the key players of the LED industry, to understand and analyze recent developments on manufacturing process and packaging solutions. Our objective is to evaluate the impact of the LED penetration rate in the solid state lighting market”, explains Pars Mukish.

LpS 2014 is a 60-lecture program and welcomes 1,300 visitors. Yole Dévelopement invites you to meet its expert, Pars Mukish at the LpS exhibition (more than 100 booths), booth #D12. - Discover LpS 2014 agenda and registration information.
