LED light bulbs are expected to have a CAGR of 28% through 2015.
LED's are very efficient in there use of electricity while providing differing light colors.
As manufacturing processes are enhanced, the price of these bulbs will inevitably drop and ultimately replace both the incandescent and florescent light bulbs.
It has been said that LED's are now where semiconductors were 25 years ago.Each manufacturer has their specific processes they use in manufacturing their LED's.
There is no one best way to make them.There is no one vastly more efficient maker of LED's.
I believe this is one of the next great growth industries of the future.
When PC's were being made in garages and sold for $3000 dollars not too many people had them.
I believe the growth rate of LED's will grow exponentially as the maunfacturing processes become more efficient with speed and yield ,thus allowing a significant reduction in price.
The purpose of this thread is to collectively attract insight into the manufacturing processes and companies that will benefit from this future growth segment.
Let's find the "Intel of the LED world" and the "Amat of the LED equipment companies".
May this edeavor reward us all as well as the semiconductor segment has over the last 2 decades !
