Lumiron™ LED Blog
Hello there, and welcome to your new Lumiron™ LED Blog, manufacturing and led technology blog.
This blog will provide a place to stay informed on the latest LED and LED manufacturing on the web. Be sure to follow our RSS feed and stay updated with our latest posts.
LEDs represent the most significant development in Lighting since the invention of the electric light more than a century ago. They allow us to create unique, low energy lighting solutions, not to mention their lower maintenance costs and as investment continues and volumes increase.
But when will LEDs become more mainstream? Assuming LED lighting continues to develop as expected, it is now possible to predict the future with some certainty. For some time now LED lighting systems have been used to light up buildings, bridges and monuments. Due to their flexibility and the possibility to set any desired colour, LEDs offer lighting solutions, which are not possible with any other existing technologies, such as colour wall washing, sharp light/shadow lines and avoiding light pollution on windows.
In the coming years, the light output of LEDs will continue to increase, enabling mass–market general lighting applications from approx 2010 onwards. The first effective general LED solutions to replace incandescents will appear on the market over the next two to three years, but initially they will be relatively expensive. However, as development continues the main question is not when they will replace what, but what new developments will be made possible.
