Attendees witnessed a dramatic shift at this week’s Lightfair 2010, the lighting industry’s most visible, 20th annual conference and tradeshow – LED’s have become the dominant lighting technology in virtually every session, presentation and vendor booth. Goodbye fluorescent, halogen, high intensity discharge, induction, you’re all passe’, OLEDs your time will come….
While Lightfair 2009 was a coming out party for LED’s, this year EVERY possible lighting application, from 2 watt dimmable candelabras to 200 watt street lighting, was on display. LED chip performance has increased another 30% since last year and manufacturers have seen the proverbial light. UL’s engineering teams are now overwhelmed with the volume of pending new applications they need to review.
