10-Year Market Forecast
Market Research Study – Consultant Service: Description        
Directly managed from our regional office in Lima, Peru this report provides estimates and forecasts, based on market research study work performed by ElectroniCast Consultants.
The LED-based lighting covered in this study is used in fixtures in stationary/fixed locations (non-vehicle or non-portable) General Lighting applications; the lighting (lamps and PCB/printed circuit boards with driver), which are used in new fixtures or retrofitting/ replacement of existing (installed-based) lighting.
General Lighting Definition – lighting that is used to provide the main illumination of an area. The ElectroniCast definition of General Lighting also includes directional and supplementary lighting.
LEDs are used in both functional and decorative light fixtures, with an advantage of energy savings. Compared to incandescent lighting, LED-based solid-state lighting (SSL) delivers visible light with reduced heat. In addition, its solid-state nature provides for greater resistance to shock, vibration, and wear, thereby significantly increasing its lifespan.
LED Level Quantified in the ElectroniCast Study Below, are four levels (or “food chain”) pertaining to the LED marketplace.  For the purposes of this ElectroniCast study, we quantify and provide a market forecast for “Level 3”

Level 1 - The chip or die
Level 2 - The LED component (packaged LED) or other components

Level 3 – Lamps, complete LED-equipped PCB, or Module

Level 4 – Luminaire (light fixture/lamp holder/including lamp/s)

Market Forecast, By Function         This report provides the 2017-2027 market data review and forecast by the following functions:
·        Consumption Value
·        Quantity (number/units)
·        Average Selling Prices
The consumption (use) value is determined by multiplying the number of lighting units by the average selling price (ASP) in US Dollars. The average selling prices are not retail prices; the prices are based on the price of the LED product at the initial factory level.  These are the original manufacturer’s (“factory”) prices invoiced to the first (original) customer, or transfer prices for internal (captive) production.

Not Covered – Lighting types not counted in this study report (see below):
·        Vehicles – lighting used in automotive, buses, trains, airplanes, ships, other
  • Holiday-Specific Lighting
  • Signage, Signals and Digital Display; back-lighting units of monitors/TVs

  • Professional Task Lighting – Horticultural; Medical/Surgical; Production lighting in Stage/Studio; UV Curing; Other professional task lighting
  • OLED or Laser-based lighting
Market Research Methodology
Market analysis and technology forecasting are complex tasks. Any predictions of the shape and trends of technology and economic movement start from the notion that the germ of what will be important tomorrow is present, although smaller or larger or in a different form, in our environment today. However, taking as a basis for a prediction the assumptions of current, conventional belief creates a set of preconceived notions that can lead to serious mistakes. ElectroniCast, instead, looks to the basic driving forces.
Information Base
During the market research process, ElectroniCast analysts performed interviews with authoritative and representative individuals in the LED and lighting industry, plus – R&D and factory/manufacturing, from the standpoint of both suppliers and users of LED and lighting illumination products. The interviews were conducted principally with:
·        Architectural lighting Designers/Installers concerns, Engineers, marketing personnel and management at manufacturers of LED lighting and related equipment, as well as other lighting technologies.
·        Design group leaders, engineers, marketing personnel and market planners at major users and potential users of LEDs and lighting
·        Other industry experts, including those focused on standards activities, trade associations, government and investments. 
The interviews covered issues of technology, R&D support, pricing, contract size, reliability, documentation, installation/maintenance crafts, standards, supplier competition and other topics.
Bottom-up Methodology     ElectroniCast forecasts, as illustrated in the forecast data structure, are developed initially at the lowest detail level, then summed to successively higher levels. The background market research study focuses on the amount of each type of product used in each application in the base year (2017), and the prices paid at the first transaction from the manufacturer. This forms the base year data.
ElectroniCast analysts then forecast the growth rates in component quantity use in each application, along with price trends, based on competitive, economic and technology forecast trends, and apply these to derive long term forecasts at the lowest application levels. The usage growth rate forecasts depend heavily on analysis of overall end user trends toward equipment usage and economic payback.

Fiber Optic Cable from Guantanamo Bay to South Florida

WASHINGTON, July 5 (UPI) -- The U.S. Defense Department wants to install a $40 million underwater fiber-optic cable from Guantanamo Bay to South Florida, an official told The Miami Herald.

The newspaper said the cable, which needs congressional approval, would be a sign the military is preparing for detentions and other operations at the Navy base for the long-term.

"It only makes sense to do if we're going to be here for any period of time," said Navy Capt. Kirk Hibbert, before the end of his two-year term as the base's commander.

Construction wouldn't start for more than a year.

The Herald said the U.S. military has told the Cuban military to expect a U.S. surveyor ship off the base's coastline this summer.

Army Lt. Col. Todd Breasseale said the Defense Information Systems Agency had conducted a feasibility study. The agency put the tentative price of the fiber-optic cable at $40 million, which has been included in the fiscal 2013 budget.

Data delivery for the base, which is home to the war court and the prison camps' intelligence unit, has strained communications through a satellite system and planners looked at whether to expand that system or opt for fiber optics.
