Exporting electronic lighting to the United Kingdom
The United Kingdom (UK) is the second largest market for electronic lighting in Europe, benefitting from the increasing focus on sustainability and energy efficiency. Currently, the UK market is driven primarily by political measures (mandatory substitution of conventional bulbs) combined with incentives. Positive automotive industry prospects and state support in the promotion of electronic lighting in public projects will drive LED and OLED production and consumption up in the UK. In order to meet market requirements, including product quality and design, exporters from developing countries should continuously work to improve their competitive advantage, e.g. by increasing LED/OLED life expectancy.
