Recent development and expansions

  • In May 2022, GERMITEC, a global healthcare pioneer, announced the completion of a EUR 11 million fundraising round after developing and commercializing high-level UV-C disinfection systems for ultrasound probes that tasks for healthcare professionals were significantly streamlined in terms of responsibility, time, and safety. This demonstrates that increasing investments in other sectors contribute to the market's growth rate.
  • In October 2021, Nichia Corporation launched a high-power 200mW UV-C LED and completed mass production of another new high radiant flux UV-C LED to help target the inactivation and sterilization of various bacteria and viruses, specifically in industrial water and air applications, where NC4U334BR activates new industrial water and air purification opportunities.
  • Epple Druckfarben and Zeller + Gmelin, two German ink companies, announced a collaboration in UV ink technology in May 2021. The first product of the new collaboration was a jointly developed UV LED ink for the sheetfed offset industry.
  • RMGT announced a UV LED partnership with GEW in January 2021. After months of evaluating all major UV LED manufacturers, RMGT formally adopted the high-performance GEW product as its definitive new solution in pursuit of ongoing technology improvement.
  • Epson launched the SureColor SC-V7000 flatbed UV LED printer in September 2020 to meet the needs of signage businesses that want faster throughput and a lower total cost of ownership without sacrificing results.

COVID-19 impact on the UV LED Market

The pandemic had a significant impact on several industries. However, as a result of the pandemic, there was a greater emphasis on hygiene and sanitation due to the increased public concern for a healthier and safer lifestyle. During the forecast period, an increase in the demand for UV systems in the healthcare and medical sectors is expected to drive the UV LED market. When compared to other verticals, the business of UV systems in the healthcare industry is less affected. UV systems are commonly used in a wide range of medical applications, including dialysis machines, catheters, hearing aids, hydrogels, and test strips. There is an increased demand for medical equipment and other necessary devices to assist COVID-19 patients and stop the virus's spread.
