As LED Lighting Gets Standardized, What Are the New and Different Applications?

Manufacturers, designers and customers are LED veterans. Unlike 2010, when Lightfair transformed into LEDfair, and new technology was everywhere, today’s innovations seem incremental. For our technically oriented team, the show is now less about discovering that one new, radically interesting thing, and more about visiting our existing, preferred suppliers and socializing with other lighting professionals.

Visitors trust that LEDs have long life expectancy and deliver significant energy savings. They know the LED wattage equivalent for a 465-watt HID is at 100 watts and an MR16 is at 8 watts. While chip manufacturers are pushing past 200 lumens per watt, chips have fallen to less than 30 percent of the total cost. Now manufacturers need to push to find other points of differentiation.
