Question ID: 764791
Looking for market size and growth info of commercial applications
using UV LEDs (emitting light below 400 nm).
Applications I know of include curing, medical, gas detection,
fluorescence exitation, but there are certainly more. Not interested
in LEDs for general lighting (above 400 nm).

Hello Theodore,

The most comprehensive sources that I have found accessible for free
on the internet, addressing both LED uses for lightening and other
applications -- which is your focus -- are two Global Watch Mission
reports -- one about US and the other one about Japan led industries
(the one about Japan is more comprehensive about the uses of LEDs
other than lightening)

LED technology: lessons from Japan

LED technology: lessons from the USA

You're not interested in lightening, but anyway, there is a very good
report on this part of the LED industry (which is still the more
voluminous, although the segment you're focusing in seems to be less
mature, hence, the one that might be about to experience the highest
*relative* growth, i.e., it might not reach the volumes of lightening
LED industry, but the latter is already more mature). The
abovementioned report is: Light Emitting Diodes for Lighting
Applications, by

Now, if you're willing to invest on fee basis reports, you have the
option of Technology Tracking, which offers you the possibility of
purchasing individual records for $250:

There is also the Intertech's report The future of LEDs - strategic
ten years forecast, which is really expensive ($6475) - See brochure
and order form at:

As to LED applications other than lightening, besides the ones very
thoroughly depicted in the Global Watch Mission reports above
mentioned, you can visit articles at LED Magazine, such as:

Module with AlGaN LEDs purifies flowing water

Industrial, Medical & Miscellaneous

LED medical treatments approved by FDA

LED innovations benefit banks and vegetables

Permlight, Osram use IR LEDs to stop movie piracy

Natus widens market for blue LED phototherapy

I believe that the information provided so far should meet your
requirements. Otherwise, please ask me for clarification and I'll be
glad to work it out. Thank you.
