For the third time, LEDTechExpo 2013, International Trade Fair for Led Technologies, Materials, Chip Design and Manufacturing, will take place in Crocus Expo on 10-12 April within the largest electronics industry forum in Russia and Eastern Europe.
Until recently, LEDs were used mainly for secondary decorative lighting. Now, manufacturing technologies have reached such a level that the widespread application of LEDs and their use for general lighting have become possible.
State support for the production of LEDs and a ban on the use of incandescent bulbs in the coming years will intensify competition among manufacturers of LED products, increase the light output of solid-state sources, and promote the active development of research programmes in the field of nanotechnology for the purpose of optoelectronics and the industrial development of LED production. According to the Agency of Industrial Information, in 2013 the projected size of the LED market will be $14.3 billion (almost double the figure for 2009). This has all led to the Solid-State Lighting sector becoming LEDTechExpo, the International Exhibition of International Exhibition for LED solutions, chip design and manufacturing.
Leading international brands, Russian manufacturers of LEDs and leading Russian distributors have been invited to exhibit at the event: OSRAM, Philips, Cree, Seoul Semiconductor, Sharp, Nichia, Avago Technologies, Kingbright Electronic, Mornsun Guangzhou Science & Technology, Samsung LED, Ledman, Mean Well, ON Semiconductor, Luxeon, Optogan company, Proton JSC, Neon-EK, Chip Selekt, Svetlana-Optoelectronics Company,LiderLayt Trade Co., Ltd, Rainbow Electronics Company, SDS Group Ltd., Compel,Macro groups, Prosoft, Aviton Company, the MT-System, Micro-Em Company, Tranzistor.ru, Symmetron HA Svetotronika Ltd., Polytex, Darth Electronics Co., Ltd, Golden Globe, Transled, PetroInTrade, Real Electronics Co., Ltd, Radiotekh-Trade Co., Ltd, Yue-International Company, etc.
