ABSTRACT
The article reports on the competition between top manufacturers of light-emitting diode (LED) lamps in India in 2011. It mentions the plan of U.S. green agent Fred Maxik to promote energy-saving and environment-friendly LED lamps in India. Despite challenges, Maxik is confident that he will make progress in encouraging India to discard compact fluorescent light (CFL) lamps. The price sensitivity of the LED market was noted by S. Niju of Frost & Sullivan.
