LED Drivers Market: Introduction
The basic functionality of an LED is to emit light when an electric current is passed through its semiconductor material. However, there can be damages to LED lights due to the type of current passed through them. LED drivers were introduced for this purpose. LED drivers prevent the damage to LEDs by regulating the forward voltage of the LED that changes with temperature, thus avoiding thermal runaway while delivering a constant current to the LED. LED drivers also help compliment the energy star rating that leads to energy conservation. LED drivers provide better longevity, reliability and efficiency to LED lights.
LED Drivers Market: Drivers and Challenges
One of the drivers for the LED drivers market is the penetration of LED lights all over the world, which require the usage of LED drivers for efficient lighting. Increase in the usage of LED lightings at locations, such as amusement parks, stadiums and other locations, has increased in the recent times, which is increasing the demand for the LED drivers as these applications require efficient lighting. Another driver for the LED drivers market is the penetration of smartphones worldwide. The LED flash, which is now a mandatory hardware for mobile phone, requires the usage of an LED driver, and this is driving the LED drivers market. Some of the other factors driving the LED drivers market are the easy availability of LED drivers due to the presence of several players in each region, the energy efficiency of LED lights as well as the ability of LED drivers to save electricity cost & consumption.

However, some of the developing regions in the world still use traditional incandescent lamps, CFLs and the like owing to the high cost of LEDs as compared to these traditional forms of lighting. This is likely to restrain the LED drivers market in these regions because since LEDs are not being purchased in these locations, there will be no demand for LED drivers.
