    Strong growth in packaged LED lighting revenue from 2007 to 2014 was the result of consumers replacing incandescent and fluorescent lighting with LED lighting. However, price erosion due to competition and the trend toward less robust, inexpensive 2835 packages caused revenues to decline by 9 percent in 2015, and 1 percent in 2016. Starting in 2017, revenue growth is expected to increase by 3 percent as prices settle.

    This file of market share data contains annual Packaged LED revenue from 2007 to 2016 for top suppliers, and company revenue for 2016 by application, region and type. The file also explains how Packaged LED revenue is calculated from company fiscal LED revenue so the difference between the two is clear. The file also contains quarterly revenue from Q1’14 to Q1’17. While many companies gave data to IHS Markit to support this research, often companies gave approximate figures or commented on estimates rather than giving data to the nearest $1 million.
