Prices in each region differed during the New Year holiday, price adjustment leads to an exciting year for the LED lighting market

LEDinside indicated that the global average price of LED light bulb replacements of 40W and 60W bulbs differed more significantly in January, and price decline was more obvious in the Japanese market. Several original brands such as IRIS OHYAMA started to significantly reduce the promotional price, and the price of new products was lower.

As for the global market, due to the New Year holiday, prices in each region fluctuated in January. Vendors reduced inventory by lowering the price, but also increased the price to end the promotional period; this has caused the difference in product prices.

In addition, following the trend in Q4 of 2012, Korean vendors continued to sell products for reasonable prices in the US and European markets. For example, the price in the European market of LED light bulb replacements of traditional 60W incandescent light bulbs with a luminous flux of 850 lumens introduced by LG in January is approximately 28-30USD, slightly lower than the average price.

LEDinside indicated that following the transition and adjustments after the New Year holiday, manufacturers will implement new strategies and actions. This year will be an exciting year for the LED lighting market.
