This sixth annual three-day conference will bring together leading developers and executives from the traditional lighting community, high-brightness LED (HB LED) manufacturers, component and equipment suppliers, lighting designers and major end-users to discuss the latest opportunities and advancements in HB LED technology, solid state lighting and handheld electronic applications.

Industry Overview:

LEDs are a $2.5 billion dollar global industry, growing 20% per year. Forecast to reach between 4 and 5 billion dollars by 2007 - moving in synch with the growing cell phone industry where LEDs are used as backlighting and to illuminate the keypad, today is an exciting time for the LED industry. The cell phone industry alone - which accounts for up to 30% of LED revenues - grew by 30 percent last year, and recent declines in LED price should result in higher revenue potential for this application.

Success in handheld applications is not the only market where LEDs are making progress. For years the automotive industry has embraced LEDs in rear lighting systems, but have not used them in other applications due to insufficient light output. Recent announcements from Lumileds/Audi and OSRAM/Ford to integrate LEDs into front and interior lighting systems signals a coming wave of new solid state lighting applications and opportunities. LEDs also have significant growth potential in traditional large screen and projection displays, aviation and architectural/contour lighting markets, as well as emerging opportunities in non-traditional industries such as in clothing and fabrics.

Today is an exciting time for the LED industry, with burgeoning demand in new applications and significant progress in developing white LEDs for the general illumination market. This conference will provide a comprehensive overview of the progress and challenges facing the industry, along with market projections and application advancements.
