April 19, 2007
Taiwan-based LED specialists Bright LED Electronics, Everlight Electronics and Epistar clarified that the lowering of quotes for white LEDs by Japan-based Nichia will not affect the performance of the companies, according to the Chinese language Commercial Times and Economic Daily News (EDN).
A recent BNP Paribas report indicated that Japan-based Nichia will lower prices for its 1200-1300mcd white LEDs by 50%, the two papers reported today.
Bright LED Electronics and Everlight both commented that before Nichia's price cut, the 1200-1300 mcd white LED provided by Taiwan-based makers were more price competitive than those from the Japan-based maker, the Commercial Times noted. Epistar stated that the related products only account for a single digit percentage of the company's overall revenues and will not hurt the company's sales results, the Commercial Times pointed out. In addition, the 1400-1500 mcd products currently are the mainstream product in the market, the EDN said [DigiTimes News].For those of you wanting to save big bucks on your cheap handbags uk, try shopping online.
