A few days ago, Mr. Wen Qidong, Deputy Secretary-General of China Lighting Association, released the article “Ups and Downs, Rising Adversity-China’s Lighting Industry Export Report in 2020”, which summarized the export situation of China’s lighting industry in 2020 through comprehensive data and rigorous analysis. Industry development contributed excellent reports and opinions.
According to the article, from January to December 2020, the total export value of China’s lighting industry was 52.588 billion US dollars, a year-on-year increase of 15.7%. Among them, the cumulative export value of LED lighting products was 35.594 billion U.S. dollars, a year-on-year increase of 17.9%. Both are the largest increases since 2016. In terms of overall performance, the export of China’s lighting industry showed “a sharp decline in the first quarter and hit the bottom; in the second quarter, the offensive and defensive changes, ready to go; the third and fourth quarters rebounded strongly, setting new highs repeatedly, and finally produced an exciting V-shape. Type reversal.” The status quo.
The article summarizes the difficulties faced by China’s lighting industry exports: 1. Price issues; 2. Exchange rate issues; 3. Supply chain issues; 4. Logistics issues; 5. Energy issues.
The article also puts forward eight major challenges that China’s lighting industry exports will encounter in 2021: 1. The high export growth of epidemic prevention materials is difficult to maintain for a long time; 2. The sustainability of the “transfer substitution effect” remains to be seen; 3. The global economic recession Downward external demand; 4. Supply chain spillover risks still exist; 5. The continued decline in profits increases the pressure on companies to survive; 6. The growth base has expanded; 7. The uncertainty of the prospects has increased; 8. The lighting industry “exports to domestic sales” “.
The above problems and challenges can indeed give Chinese lighting companies a deep understanding and inspiration. Every enterprise has its own different situation, facing the above problems, it is bound to think about its own solutions. Combined with the international and domestic development situation, I believe that light health must be good medicine to solve the problems of the lighting industry.
Although the global economy is changing, we can see that technology is still on the ladder of social progress. Because of its powerful technology, the United States is calling for wind and rain on a global scale. Because of technological innovation, China’s overall strength continues to rise. Developed countries lead the global trend because of leading technology. Because of the backwardness of science and technology, developing countries continue to seek lessons from developed countries. The development problems of the lighting industry ultimately need to be solved by technological innovation.
Light health is the inevitable direction of technological innovation in the lighting industry. Light Health integrates a series of disciplines such as semiconductors, integrated circuits, lighting, optics, medicine, physiology, neurology, dermatology, ophthalmology, etc., and is an industry that has risen to a higher level in the lighting industry. An important part of the growth of China’s lighting industry in 2020-ultraviolet sterilization lighting is an important section in the optical health industry.
The important foundation of light health technology is based on the core theory of “sunlight is the healthiest light”. The application of lighting is just a part of the visible light in sunlight. Sunlight and invisible light such as ultraviolet and infrared are worth learning, imitating, and combining with artificial light sources. With light health technology innovation, will the market space needed for the development of China’s lighting industry still be small?
Looking back at the 2020 new crown pneumonia epidemic, it has brought huge trauma to the world, but it is also promoting continuous progress in the field of global health technology. The lighting industry related to epidemic prevention and fighting has benefited a lot, and this is only the first step. In the future, there may be a decline in the demand for sterilization and disinfection lighting products, but the demand for lighting products that are closely related to health will continue to rise. This is the future development space of light health and the rising space of the lighting industry’s transformation of light health.
