The LED lighting industry is fast-flourishing with a surge in LED usage across the globe owing to the continuous emphasis on sustainability. As various government agencies worldwide keep pushing for eco-friendly alternatives, the paradigm shift to LED is inevitable. Supreme Components International Pte. Ltd. (SCI) has been at the forefront of this disruption by trying to understand the dynamics of this market and helping suppliers and OEMs.
The ecosystem of an LED supply chain can be understood in terms of how manufacturers and suppliers interact with their customers.
This infographic underscores the various players within the LED supply chain and how each one influences the demand/supply for LEDs.
When a property developer or house owner decides to go ahead with designing a real estate/property, the architects along with the lighting and interior designers play a key role in finalizing the type of LED lightings to be used. The specifications for different luminaires are documented and sent to the builder (general contractor) who in turn delegates it to the electrical contractor. The procurement of these lighting supplies is handled by electrical wholesalers.
At this point in the supply chain, general contractors can try and convince the builders to use low-cost lighting products substituted in place of the specific high-tech LEDs requested for by the lighting specialists. This can prove detrimental to the progress of many OEMs as lower quality variants may be pushed in by the wholesalers for a cheaper price.
LED-based Original Equipment Manufacturers should look to actively tap into the interests and trends observed in the rapidly changing LED market. Close attention should be paid to research & development to identify customer needs and key factors influencing the design of lighting products.
