Global LED Market and China Animation 2014 Industry Analysis in New Research Reports

DALLAS, TX -- In 2014, the LED market is forecast to continue recovery with the market size hitting US$ 16.562 billion (up 9.0% from 2013). China's animation industry output value continued to grow and exceeded US $ 14 Billion (RMB 90 billion) in 2013, showing a year-on-year increase of around 21.0%. offers "Global and China LED Industry Report, 2013-2014" and "Global and China Animation Industry Report, 2014" market intelligence and research studies with analysis of both sectors, their major players, trends and much more.

For the past three years, China's animation industry has expanded by about $1.6 billion yuan per year as per a new update by Animation exports - a sector that the government is keen to expand - reached $160 million in 2013, up 22.8 percent year on year. About 220,000 people are working at 4,600 animation companies in China. Global and China Animation Industry Report, 2014 ( ) says that in 2013 there were a total of 33 animation films released in Chinese mainland theatres, including 24 homemade and 9 imported, generating total box office of about RMB1.64 billion, up 13.34% year on year. With respect to the animation derivatives market, in 2013 the domestic market size approximated RMB26.4 billion, up 20% year on year. As the core of China's animation industry chain, the derivatives market has encountered stormy mergers and acquisitions since 2013, thus constantly improving and extending the animation industry chain.

The global LED industry can be divided into four clusters. First, Europe and America underline general lighting with an emphasis on high reliability and high brightness. Second, Japan embodies the most comprehensive technology, performing outstandingly in both of general lighting and backlight display. Besides, it also targets general lighting, automobiles, mobile phones and TV. Third, South Korea and Taiwan targets laptop display backlight, LED-TV backlight and mobile phone backlight with large shipment, low unit price and low margin. Last, Mainland China centers AlInGaP, outdoor display, advertising screen and signal lights which require low technology and reliability; and in these fields, customers are scattered and the unit price is low.

Global and China LED Industry Report, 2013-2014 says since 2013, the development of the LED industry has been mainly reflected in the packaging field. In the future, the LED cost reduction depends on packaging instead of Epitaxy. Packaging costs over 50% of the LED chip spending. Prior to 2014, LED cost cutting concentrated in the Epitaxy field, so that Epitaxy vendors witnessed a sharp decline in profits, even many of them exited from the industry due to losses. After 2014, packaging factories will suffer the cost-cutting pressure, so some of them with poor technical capabilities may see descending profits.

Companies profiled in 2014 Global and China Animation Industry Report include Disney, Bandai Namco Group, Hasbro, DreamWorks, Pixar Animation, Toei Animation, Sotsu, Studio Ghibli, Guangdong Alpha Animation And Culture Co., Ltd., Global Digital Creations Holdings Limited, Fantawild Holdings Inc., Taomee Holdings Limited, Toonmax Media Co., Ltd., Guangdong Creative Power Entertaining Co., Ltd., Sparkly Key Animation Studio, Vasoon Animation, KAKU Media Inc., Sunchime Cartoon, CCTV ANIMATION.COM, Huawei Technology Co., Ltd and Meisheng Cultural & Creative Corp., Ltd. Of which, Alpha Animation as the leader with a complete animation industry chain has continuously extended its industrial chain through the layout of online game and mobile game since 2013. In the first quarter of 2014, it gained revenue of RMB375 million (up 18.15% YoY) and net income of RMB49.8 million (up 10.28% YoY).

The toy export-oriented Huawei Technology Co.,Ltd suffered a sharp decline of 25.64% in net income in 2013, affected by the export market downturn. The performance got improved by acquiring 20% stake in ebogame in December 2012. In the first quarter of 2014, its revenue and net income climbed 10.28% and 0.82% year on year to RMB60.1 million and RMB3.6 million, respectively.

Meisheng Culture & Creative Corp., Ltd., has focusing on anime apparel, but seeing frequent mergers and acquisitions since its listing in 2013, thus realizing the full cut-through from content (Zhejiang Dishun Technology Co., Ltd.), media (DreamFactory + The Age of Innocence) to derivatives sales (the Dutch distributor). In the first quarter of 2014, its revenue and net income saw substantial increases of 218.76% and 37.36% to RMB50.7 million and RMB4 million, respectively. Order a copy of this report at .

37 Companies profiled in 2014 Global and China LED Industry Report include Everlight Electronics Co., Ltd., Epistar Corporation, Genesis Photonics Inc., Arima Optoelectronics Corp, Formosa Epitaxy Inc, Lite-On Technology Corporation, Bright LED Electronics Corp., Opto Tech Corporation, Harvatek Corporation, Tekcore, Unity Opto Technology LTD., Huga Optotech Inc., Lextar Electronics Corporation, TYNTEK Corporation, Edison Opto Corp., Epiligh Technology Co., Ltd., Hunan HuaLei Optoelectronic Corporation, Hangzhou Silan Azure Co., Ltd., Sanan Optoelectronics Co., Ltd., Nantong Tongfang Semiconductor Co., Ltd., Shandong Inspur Huaguang Optoelectonics Co., Ltd., Foshan Nationstar Optoelectronics Co. Ltd., Shanghai Rainbow Optoelectronics Material Co. Ltd., Dalian Lumei Optoelectronics Corporation, Xiamen Changelight Co., Ltd., Elec-tech International Co., Ltd., Neo-Neon Holdings Ltd., HC SemiTek Corporation, Cree Inc., Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd., Nichia Corporation, OSRAM Opto Semiconductor, Philips Lumileds Lighting Company, Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd., LG Innotek Ltd., Samsung LED and Lumens Digital Optics Inc. From 2011 onwards, a large number of Mainland Chinese enterprises have entered the LED industry, causing panic. In reality, none of Mainland Chinese enterprises (including the giant Sanan Optoelectronics) is capable of producing white LED chips or grasping the related patents. Therefore, Mainland China has to import or purchase all needed white LED chips from foreign companies.

Mainland Chinese LED enterprises rely on local governmental subsidies which were huge in 2010-2013. For example, Elec-Tech International was subsidized with RMB270 million in 2010, RMB311 million in 2011, RMB224 million in 2012 and RMB315 million in 2013; but, the net income of the company was only RMB4.6 million in 2013. Without these subsidies, the company might be in a serious loss. Sanan Optoelectronics obtains RMB4 billion from Xiamen's government in 2014, because Xiamen is eager to make the company return to Xiamen from Wuhu.

Numerous Mainland Chinese LED downstream enterprises are featured with small scale, severe homogenization and intense price war. They cannot get governmental subsidies or conduct financing in the stock market. In 2014, many of them may go bankrupt. Currently, COB packaging and Flip chip packaging are not only the most promising, but also represent the future direction. COB performs strikingly in the field of street lighting and high-power general lighting. But, it is inferior to FLIP-CHIP in the fields where volume is emphasized, such as TV BLU. In addition, FLIP-CHIP's cost advantage is more obvious. From the perspective of cost and application, COB will become the future mainstream of lighting design.

FLIP-CHIP made its debut in 2008, and became mature in early 2012. Its biggest advantage lies in: it can go to SMT production lines directly under high current without Wirebond or separate welding; besides, its size is small. The market size is estimated to jump from USD1.5 billion in 2013 to USD5.5 billion in 2017. In the BLU field, FLIP-CHIP will become the mainstream.
