Research and Markets: Global UV LED Market Report 2014-2018
DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/hcp84l/global_uv_led) has announced the addition of the "Global UV LED Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Global UV LED market will grow at a CAGR of 43.51% over the period 2013-2018
An LED is a semiconductor device/light source that emits visible light or infrared light when an electric charge passes through it. LEDs are primarily used in indicator lamps and for other types of lighting such as that used in billboard signs, TV remotes, and brake lights of vehicles. Initially, LEDs would only emit a low-intensity red light. Currently, however, LEDs are available across the visible, ultraviolet, and infrared wavelengths. They work on the principle of electroluminescence, wherein the color of illumination is determined by the energy band gap of the semiconductor. A UV LED displays an ultraviolet light; its wavelength is less than 400 nm.
The compact nature and superior performance of UV LEDs is driving new and innovative applications including:
- Air purification
- Currency validation
- Dental curing and teeth whitening
- DNA gel
- Fluorescence disclosure and verification
- Water purification
- Medical phototherapy
The Global UV LED market can be divided based on application into seven segments:
- Counterfeit Analysis
- Optical Sensor and Instrumentation
- Photocatalytic Air Purification
- UV Curing
- Water Purification
