The article reports that the solid-state lighting industry is poised to propel light emitting diode (LED) revenue to a double-digit expansion rate in 2007 in the U.S. iSuppli Corp. forecasts total LED market revenue will grow by about 13.7% in 2007 and will expand at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of approximately 14.6% between 2006 and 2012 to reach $12.3 billion. Global LED market revenue rose by only 2.1% in 2005 and by 8.7% in 2007. These figures encompass all Surface-Mount Device (SMD) and through-hole packaged LED lamps and alphanumeric display LEDs including standard brightness, High Brightness (HB) and Ultra-High Brightness (UHB) LEDs.
