China’s LED package market saw stable prices in November as chip prices were relatively constant

The latest survey of China’s LED package market finds that prices were steady in November on account that chip prices also did not register any noticeable drop. Prices of 2835 and 5630 LEDs stayed constant in November as they had been for several months straight. Prices of 3030 LEDs, which by contrast had been on a downtrend for some consecutive months, started to see their decline easing in November. As for high-power ceramic LED packages, international suppliers including those from the U.S. and South Korea have cut their prices on these products, thus lowering their global ASPs.
