Taiwan-made LED light bulb shipments are expected to increase 20 percent from the 1.34 million units recorded in 2012, to 1.60 million this year, LEDinside said in a recent research note.
The note follows an earlier report that said Taiwan's listed LED companies had combined sales of NT$10.95 billion (US$365 million) in July, up 4.24 percent from the previous month and 24.9 percent from a year earlier.
As demand in the LED backlight market slides and LED lighting applications matures, Taiwanese LED manufacturers are increasing the proportion of their lighting products, mainly through adding orders from international makers or shipping to European and U.S. distributors to make up for the shortfall in capacity utilization, the report said.
