UVC LED - can they beat the UV mercury lamps?

Extract from

UV mercury lamp has an advantage of high optical power and is mainly used for disinfection in large space like schools and hospitals. However,

  • UV LED does not need warm-up time and is free of mercury, so it is safer, more sustainable with a longer lifespan, less energy cost and less thermal loss.

  • As UV-C LED uses single waveband and emits less optical power per LED, it is relatively safer regarding irradiation.

  • With the strength of miniaturized light source, it can well meet the market demands of small space and surface disinfection.

Affected by COVID-19, various UV-C LED products are rising in the market, covering disinfection bags, boxes, maternity products, UV-C disinfecting torchlights and portable disinfecting products, boosting demands of the UV-C LED market.

“UV-C LED manufacturers have been committed to develop the field of home appliance brands for many years. As UV-C LED technology gets more mature and is more acceptable by big brands, UV-C LED will eventually enter the growth booming period in 2020. Compared with the household brand market, UV-C LED product prices are more acceptable for commercial application field. As UV-C LED technology gets stable and its brand acceptance improves, UV-C LED is likely to be adopted in commercial air conditioner, surface disinfecting applications and water disinfection fields,” said Joanne Wu, Research Manager at TrendForce.

Passenger cars plans to introduce UV-C LED for external sterilization products and air conditioning to create clean air.:

  • In-car air is relatively closed and is re-circulated, it carries smells of food, cigarette smoke perfume or even bacteria and viruses brought by the passengers. Asa result, the Air inside cars often has malodorous smell and may lead to passengers’ illness. Internal UV-C LED lamp with people sensor cut-off can constantly keep the air clean and helathy.

UVC LED relate to wide application fields including home appliances, commercial space, automotive field, water purifier markets, as well as, specialty lighting markets covering sterilization lighting, food industry applications, fishery applications, horticultural lighting, phototherapy and curing equipment.
