Xiamen's 2016 LED output value reached 32.3 billion, and the export volume accounted for half of the country's total output.
Thirteen years ago, the country’s first national semiconductor lighting engineering industrialization base was born in Xiamen, and Xiamen became one of the birthplaces of China's LED lighting industry. In 2016, among the top ten Chinese LED bulb exporters, Xiamen-based companies With five exclusive seats, the scale of exports accounts for half of the country. Throughout the opening year of the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan”, Xiamen’s optoelectronic industry will further enlarge and strengthen industrial clusters and create high-end lighting and intelligent lighting industry chain of one hundred billion yuan.
What are the reasons for the rapid development of the LED industry in Xiamen? In the industry, everyone hailed Xiamen's LED industry as the “Xiamen Model” and was one of the development samples of semiconductor lighting industrialization bases in 14 countries. After more than ten years of cultivation and development, the Xiamen optoelectronics industry has achieved remarkable success. The Xiamen Semiconductor Lighting Industry Base has also become one of the only two Type A bases in the semiconductor lighting industry in China.
For more than a decade, the LED industry in our city has energetically promoted innovation-driven, transformation and upgrading, and optimized and improved the development of the LED industry environment and supporting capabilities. In 2016, the total output value of the optoelectronic industry in our city was about 120 billion yuan, accounting for the photoelectric industry in Fujian Province. About half of them, of which the direct output value of the LED industry reached 32.3 billion, accounting for 26.9% of the total output value of optoelectronics, an increase of 20% over the same period of last year. Under the background of declining LED growth, it ranked among the top 14 LED industrial bases in the country.
The “Xiamen Model” became a national sample, and the scale of exports accounted for “half of the country” in the country.
Since the year of 2003, Xiamen proposed the strategic goal of fostering the optoelectronic industry, the optoelectronics industry has experienced more than ten years of leap-forward development under the utmost attention and dedication of the Xiamen Municipal Committee and the municipal government. According to incomplete statistics, in 2016, the city's photovoltaic output value reached 120 billion yuan, of which the direct output value of the LED industry reached 32.3 billion yuan, accounting for 26.9% of the total photoelectric output value, an increase of 20%, has become the country's most rapid development of optoelectronics One of the industrial clusters.
The LED industry covers the middle and lower reaches of the city. In the field of epitaxy and chips, Xiamen has become China's largest, most powerful and most complete LED epitaxial chip production base for 13 consecutive years. In the field of applied products, according to the statistics provided by the customs, Among the top 10 LED bulb exporters in China, Xiamen has an exclusive five seats, and the export scale has occupied the “half of the country” and has become one of the largest high-end LED bulb manufacturing and export bases in the world. According to statistics, 30 out of every 100 LED bulbs in the world are manufactured and exported from Xiamen.
The development of the industry is inseparable from the creation of an innovative environment and the support of the platform. Relevant statistics show that Xiamen LED Industry Base has a total of 28 national, provincial and municipal enterprise technology centers, 9 national, provincial and municipal key laboratories, 8 national postdoctoral workstations, and 8 national, provincial and municipal engineering technologies. Research Center, and the first domestic LED application product professional testing organization - National Semiconductor Light Emitting Device (LED) application product quality supervision and inspection center and other platforms.
A number of achievements have emerged in scientific and technological innovation. The first single-layer graphene industrialization production base in China settled in Xiamen.
In 2016, the National Urban Innovation Index ranks No. 13 in Xiamen, and the regional comprehensive innovation index ranks 16th in the country. Xiamen's top technology innovation capability is also reflected in the innovation of the optoelectronics industry. Last year, Xiamen’s optoelectronics companies’ ability to innovate independently accelerated, and a number of world-class products, including the first flexible AMOLED display and single-layer graphene, emerged. And technology. The Xiamen Institute of Rare Earth Materials, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the Engineering Research Institute of the Graphene Engineering and Industry of Xiamen University have accelerated the construction of the first domestic single-layer graphene industrialization production base in Xiamen, which has provided strong support for the development of the LED industry in our city.
The city's LED industry also pays attention to industrial patent technology innovation. From 2011 to 2016, the city authorized a total of 3,158 LED patents, an average annual increase of 27%, authorized 1,943 invention patents, an average annual increase of 25%, and 561 upstream epitaxial chip patents, an average annual increase of 37%. Among the representative companies, Sanan Optoelectronics' mid- and low-power chip products have reached international advanced standards in terms of brightness and stability. At the same time, Sanan Optoelectronics has also invested in third-generation semiconductor R&D and manufacturing represented by GaN. Fill our country's gap in the manufacturing process.
Leveraging policies to lead industrial upgrading, a group of companies first try to seize the commanding heights of industrial development
Some industry insiders believe that during the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” period, the LED industry chain in Xiamen will exceed 100 billion. In the key period of the “13th Five-Year Plan” development in the optoelectronics industry, the city’s LED industry will leverage the opportunity to build the Xiamen area of the Fuxianquan National Independent Innovation Demonstration Zone and continue to lead the optoelectronics industry structure by taking advantage of the “25 innovations in technology” policy. Optimize and upgrade, seize the commanding height of industrial development, improve the overall competitiveness of the industry, and achieve sustainable development.
Xiamen's “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” pointed out that the city will improve the level of development of the optoelectronic lighting industry, deepen and extend the energy-saving lighting industry chain such as LED, and expand the high-end link of the value chain, giving full play to the city’s leading “national semiconductor lighting engineering industrialization base”. Status, promote the development of LED industry agglomeration. At the same time specify the direction of industrial innovation, in the future will vigorously develop LED epitaxial substrate materials, new packaging technologies and processes, high-end lighting and intelligent lighting systems, and LED special areas (such as agricultural lighting, forest lighting, medical lighting) applications.
Fortunately, a group of companies have begun to try first and established an innovative R&D concept of “developing generations, storing generations, and planning generations”. The Rieter Group has established a R&D center of 700 people. Not only is it the world's largest exporter of LED bulbs, but it also keeps innovating in intelligent lighting systems and industrial design. It has cooperated with Huawei in the field of intelligence. The products have won the International Red Dot and IF Awards; Guan Yu Technology focuses on the research and development of high-end LED lighting and solar photovoltaic technology and product innovation, and its innovative products have successfully entered the Bai An Ju, IKEA international channel business; Fenix focuses on high-end lamps Innovative R&D and production, several lighting products have won international Red Dot and IF Awards many times; Xiamen Zhilian ICT made breakthroughs in the innovation of urban street lamp single lamp control system, and has now involved in the construction of smart city systems.
