Chip-on-Board (COB) Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Market 2020 Emerging Technology, Global Size, Industry Share Current Statistics and Forecast 2023

Top Drivers and Key Barriers

Market Research Future (MRFR) estimates in its latest report that the global chip-on-board (COB) light-emitting diode (LED) market value in 2017 was USD 2,010.5 million, which can touch USD 5,261.8 million by 2023. MRFR believes that the market has the potential to achieve a strong growth rate of 17.88% during the forecast period (2018-2023).

Smart LEDs have gained massive traction in recent years, as they let the users have control over their switching mode, color, and brightness with the use of mobile applications. The demand for LED lighting solutions has risen significantly in recent years, on account of surging investments in the development of smart cities as well as the rising adoption of energy-efficient lighting systems in streetlights, residential, and public office buildings. With the aim of attaining miniaturized design along with high light intensity from smart lighting applications, manufacturers are now concentrating on adopting a higher number of COB LEDs. Therefore, the increasing adoption of COB LED in smart lighting is expected to be one of the chief reasons behind the strong growth expected for the chip-on-board LED market in the following years.
