In China, a large number of enterprises have been specialized into LED industry and almost every LED lights manufacturer is exploring the future development of this industry. LED light products have occupied an important position in the lighting market as they have been considered to have great potential in this field.

According to an official report before, LED firms in the United States, Japan and Europe have more than 80% of the LED chip core technology patents, but there are less than 10% of similar enterprises in China have similar patents. In a long period, the core technology of the LED upstream epitaxial chip and the chip market have been monopolized by the synthesis of several major foreign industrial giants such as Nichia, Toyoda, Cree, Osram, who account for about 70% of the output value of the whole industry chain. It also makes the structure of LED industry chain in China very unreasonable.
Although incandescent began being replaced by the T8 led tube in the market, the price still restricting the popularity of LED home lighting. With the LED technology development and continuous product quality improvement, application in home lighting is still the general trend. However, there will be still a long way for LED lighting industry of China to go.
