Leaders of the lighting industry from Taiwan have showcased their innovative products at Interlight Moscow-2015, one of the world’s pre-eminent lighting exhibitions, and presented their innovations within LED-Forum.
During the forum, Mr. Wang Chien-Yeh, Ambassador of Representative Office in Moscow for Taipei-Moscow Economic and Cultural Coordination Commission, gave an overview of the development of trading relations between Russia and Taiwan. “Interlight-2015, and especially LED Forum is a great opportunity for Taiwanese producers to present their latest technologies. According to estimates by Taiwan’s Photonics Industry and Technology Development Association (PIDA), Taiwan’s LED component industry market value is expected to grow 14% in 2015 due to the high popularity of LED technologies and the trust of consumers to Taiwanese manufacturers. We hope that this event will be beneficial for Russian-Taiwan successful cooperation and will help in building and implementing ambitious goals of Taiwan producers in Russia”, said Mr. Wang. Professor Fu Chao-Ming, Director of Science and Technology Division of Taiwan Representative Office in Moscow, presented Taiwan high-end technologies and reported on the current Taiwan LED industry tendencies. “First of all, Taiwan LED-industry is based on high-volume scientific researches and uses the recent elaborations. We believe that Russian LED-users and representatives of LED-companies appreciate the innovativeness and quality of our products”, said Prof. Fu.
The forum included the reports of the representatives of major Taiwanese LED-market producers: James Chen (Edison Opto Corporation), Tlukashaev Shamil (Beautiful Light Technology Corp.) and Alexey Pankrashkin (Intech Engineering, project partner and exclusive distributor of UPRTech in Russia and CIS). All the three companies play the significant role in Taiwan lighting industry. Beautiful Light Technology has become a market leader in the production of high power LED-bulbs, owing to its expertise in electrics, optics and thermal management. Edison Opto focuses on high power LED and brand management, offering customized design and production services, which cover components, optical design, modules and high-bay products. LEDlink Optics specializes in designing and manufacturing optics for emerging solid-state lighting companies such as Cree, Edison, Lumileds, Nichia, Osram, Samsung and Seoul.
As the use of LED lighting becomes more widespread globally, renewed capital spending and capacity increases are forecast for both 2015 and 2016. In the first half of the year, the output of Taiwan’s LED packaging and testing segment reached NT$44.9 billion, according to PIDA.
