Best-Selling Eight Types Of Indoor LED Lights
LEDs have been used as a light source in lighting fixtures for just over a decade, but they have gained a lot of momentum. Below, we will take stock of the eight hot and best-selling, highly exposed indoor LED lamps and lanterns on the market in 2014, including LED ceiling lights, LED bulbs, LED panel lights, LED filament lamps, LED downlights, LED fluorescent tubes, LED spotlights, LED crystal lights and so on.
LED Ceiling Light
LED ceiling light is a kind of ceiling light that chooses LED as the light source, it is installed inside the room and is called LED ceiling light because the upper part of the light is flat and installed close to the roof, like adsorption on the roof.
For consumers, the ceiling light market has become very mature, has long become the market just demand, and the current LED ceiling light is basically just an upgrade of the light source, its base plate and shell basically nothing changes, mainly inside the changes, ballast into drive, light source upgrade LED.
When the price of LED ceiling lights approaches that of traditional ceiling lights, they are bound to become popular on a large scale, thus making the market for LED ceiling lights more mature.
As early as 1995-1996, the traditional ceiling light was born, due to the shape of the sun, so the industry at the time called the “sun lamp”, 2000 years ago, the ceiling light style single, single material, mostly using low-grade materials, and inductor ceiling light is the main.
Subsequently, the ceiling lamp market has gone through three stages of development: market sales, production can not keep up; brand has been a lot, each have their own share; competition is fierce, each other to grab the cake. Just when the ceiling lamp pattern is formed, the LED era has come, the enterprises have joined the transformation team.
Ceiling lights using LED light source is in 2010, when it was the era of profiteering, the whole industry is chaotic do; 2011 is to grab the market, fighting prices, you cut prices, I also cut prices, all products have no price positioning; 2012 situation is the first to cut prices will be able to win part of the market; but in 2014, the market is not the same, cut prices are not necessarily able to win the market.
Now, with the continuous maturity of LED lighting technology, all kinds of LED ceiling lights also a large number of market, LED ceiling lights market has also become the major LED lighting companies must compete.
However, the current LED ceiling lights go in large quantities of brands or concentrated in Opple Lighting, Philips, Panasonic, Rays Lighting, Long Energy, Sanxiong – Aurora, Huayi, Crocodile Lighting, Foshan Lighting, Osram and other traditional lighting era ceiling light brands, these brand channels directly into the hardware shop.
LED bulb lamp
As incandescent lamps and electronic energy-saving lamps still occupy a very high proportion of people’s daily use, in order to reduce waste, LED lighting manufacturers must develop LED lighting products that meet existing interfaces and people’s habits, making it possible to use a new generation of LED lighting products without replacing the original traditional lamp base and wiring, LED bulb lamps are thus born.
The LED bulb lamp uses the existing interface, i.e. screw, socket (E26\E27\E14\B22, etc.), and even imitates the shape of an incandescent bulb in order to meet people’s usage habits.
Based on the unidirectional light-emitting principle of LED, designers have made changes in the structure of the lamps to make the light distribution curve of LED bulbs basically converge with the point light source of incandescent lamps.
Based on the light-emitting characteristics of LEDs, the structure of LED bulbs is relatively complex compared to incandescent lamps, and is basically divided into light sources, driver circuits and heat sinks, which work together to create low energy consumption, long life, high luminous efficiency and environmentally friendly LED bulb products.
As the best light source to replace incandescent lamps, LED bulbs are increasingly sought after by consumers in the market.
In the end market, professional lighting stores, hardware wholesale channels, super-channels, engineering channels, e-commerce channels and so on are everywhere the figure of LED bulbs.
LED bulbs are currently one of the few LED lighting products that can take the volume of products, a large number of lighting brands into the terminal LED lighting market looks “red hot” a piece.
From the current sales situation, the residential market is the main market for LED bulbs, while the more profitable market is engineering projects.
At present, the main power of LED bulbs on the market is between 3W-9W, in the civilian market 3W, 5W sold the best, in the engineering channel, 8W and 12W sold more. And in terms of price, 3W LED bulbs are available from 3.5 yuan to 25 yuan, with different prices and different quality.
The current breakthroughs and enhancements in LED bulb lamp technology have led to an increasing reduction in cost, and after several rounds of price adjustments, the market price is getting lower and lower, comparable to some energy-saving lamp brand products.
This year, the price of bulbs has been reduced by nearly half, although the price of products from well-known brands is still too high, allowing small brands to take advantage. The price of future bulbs will continue to decrease and will become more and more affordable.
LED Panel Light
The LED panel light is a high-grade indoor lighting fixture, mainly composed of lamp beads, light guide, diffusion board, housing and driving several major parts, its outer frame is made of aluminium alloy by anodic oxidation, the light source is LED, the whole lamp design is beautiful and simple, atmospheric luxury, both good lighting effect, but also can bring people the feeling of beauty.

LED filament lamp
What exactly is an LED filament lamp? From the appearance, LED filament lamps are incandescent lamps made with LEDs, imitating the form of incandescent lamps, which can directly replace incandescent lamps.
To put it bluntly, the LED filament lamp is a product that combines the “form” of traditional lighting incandescent lamps with the connotation of LED lighting – “God”. It can be called both a new vitality of LED lighting products, but also has a strong old sentiment.
2014 is a good year for the LED industry, because, since this year, countries such as the United States, China, South Korea, and Australia will expand the scope of restrictions on incandescent lamps from the existing industrial use area to indoor lighting for residential use.
The production and application of various types of LED lamps has been given a strong boost, with a large number of former incandescent lamp manufacturers also actively switching to LED lamps, and a wave of LED filament lamp fever has been set off in the industry, with major lighting companies promoting this product.
The product in Taobao, Alibaba and other online sales results, a large number of enterprises have also joined the new product sales team, will have the original LED bulbs, energy-saving lamps, incandescent lamps to replace the momentum of the whole.
Last year the Chinese market had difficulty accepting LED filament lamps, but when they saw this product, many lighting manufacturers and visitors were curious to “go around”, it was like a rejection and a welcome.
In this year’s Asia Pacific Exhibition before, the Chinese mainland lighting exhibition also rarely see the figure of LED filament lamps, but in this year’s Asia Pacific Exhibition, whether it is Foshan Lighting, Silver Rain Lighting, Sanxiong – Aurora, Dongshan Lighting, Shenzhen source Lei technology and other large lighting companies, or small enterprises have a display, for the industry to come, they still hold a reserved attitude, can be said to welcome but also refuse.
Most lighting companies look at the LED filament lamp market for two reasons.
On the one hand, customers have demand, in the light source products, customers still want to be similar to traditional light sources, they have used incandescent lamps for decades, the incandescent lighting effect has a sense of identity, and the filament lamp luminous effect and incandescent lamps are very similar;.
On the other hand, there is a certain technical height, in the process of independent research and development, the filament lamp with a glass substrate works very well and dissipates heat very well.
Some industry analysis, with the LED filament manufacturing technology, LED filament application technology, glass bubble sealing bubble inflatable technology, no strobe source technology and other technical research and supporting the perfect, in addition to the original incandescent lamp factory to take the opportunity to transform and upgrade, there will be more LED lamps and lanterns factory to share a piece of the pie, the LED filament lamp market bigger and bigger.
LED downlight is a kind of embedded into the ceiling light down type lighting fixture, belongs to the directional lighting fixture, only its opposite side can receive light, light is more concentrated, strong contrast between light and dark, can be more prominent illuminated object; lumen degree is higher, more set off the quiet environment atmosphere.
Its biggest feature is to maintain the overall unity and perfection of the architectural decoration, not because of the setting of lamps and lanterns and destroy the perfect unity of the ceiling art, the light source is hidden inside the architectural decoration, not exposed, the visual effect is soft and uniform.
At present, the amount of 5W SMD downlight is becoming more and more stable, of which Dami, EVERLIGHT, Opple and other brands are among the typical brands. In terms of light source, downlight only SMD and COB light source, of which the amount of COB downlight is not yet large, mainly SMD, SMD basically dominated the entire LED downlight market.
As LED downlight is the application of new LED lighting source in the traditional downlight based on the improvement of the development of products, compared with the traditional downlight has energy saving, low carbon, long life, good colour rendering, fast response speed and other advantages.

At the same time, most responsible manufacturers gradually realize the importance of quality, only accurate quality products can impress customers to replace traditional light sources and solve their worries, in addition to the grasp of quality, the appearance of LED downlight industrial design improvements are also gradually on the agenda.
LED daylight tube
The LED fluorescent tube is a fourth-generation LED point light source with a straight tube shape, the same shape as an ordinary fluorescent lamp, and the color of the light emitted is similar to sunlight, so people call it an LED fluorescent lamp or LED fluorescent tube.
Its use of ultra-high bright LED white light as a light source, good heat dissipation; unique shaped aluminum tube, better luminous effect, no dark areas on both sides of the aluminum alloy shell with PC mask (transparent cover, frosted striped cover, fog cover), good material, not easy to damage, durable and safe to use.
The LED fluorescent tube is one of the key products developed by the national green energy-saving lighting project, and is the most ideal product to replace the traditional fluorescent lamp.
The classification of LED fluorescent tubes is similar to that of ordinary fluorescent lamps, using the diameter of the tube is divided into T5, T8, T10, T12 and so on. There is also a classification according to its length, for example, it can be divided into 0.6m, 0.9m, 1.2m, 1.5m long, etc.
With the progress of LED lighting technology, the cost of raw materials down, the current LED T5/T8 daylight tube has entered the market competition white-hot stage, its price from more than 100 yuan at the beginning of 2013, down to dozens of dollars or even dozens of dollars.
After several rounds of fierce competition, the current market trends to be clear, business profits are also gradually rationalized, the industry towards a healthy and orderly direction of development.
From the market in the second half of this year, everyone’s awareness of LED lighting is getting higher and higher, and market acceptance is gradually increasing.
At present, most of the projects are choosing LED daylight tubes, plus part of the replacement project market share, LED daylight tube in the field of engineering sales are very good.
It is understood that LED fluorescent tubes can be described as the front runner among many LED lighting products, so the future development of LED fluorescent tubes is a bright.
Over the next five years, the cost of LED fluorescent tubes will fall further, the number of consumers experiencing the product will increase and eventually LED fluorescent tubes will replace traditional fluorescent tubes.
LED spotlights are spotlights that use light-emitting diodes as a light source. Traditional spotlights mostly use halogen lamps, which have lower luminous efficiency, are more power-hungry, are exposed to rising ambient temperatures and have a short service life.
LED light sources are far superior to traditional lighting fixtures in terms of luminous principle, energy efficiency, and environmental aspects. And the unidirectional nature of LED luminescence forms the perfect support for spotlighting with light.
At this stage, LED spotlights are mainly used to replace traditional tungsten halogen lamps, so the form factor is with reference to IEC 60630 and the lamp head with reference to IEC 60061-1.
According to the traditional spotlight situation, the current LED spotlights are mainly MR16, PAR16, PAR20, PAR30 and PAR38. Among them, MR16 usually adopts GU5.3 lamp head; PAR16 mainly adopts GU10, E26(America)/E27(Europe and China), E14 lamp head; PAR20/PA30/PAR38 mainly adopts E26, E27 lamp head.
LED spotlights are mainly used for decoration, commercial space lighting and architectural lighting, etc. With the development and progress of LED technology, the performance advantages of LED projection lights on the market are very prominent, using high-purity aluminium reflector plates, the most accurate light beam and the best reflection effect; symmetrical narrow angle, wide angle and asymmetrical and other light distribution systems, and the projection lights all come with a scale plate, people can easily adjust the irradiation angle according to the scale.
However, with the development of the economy and the dominance of the consumer market, crystal lamps have gradually become more affordable and have entered the homes of ordinary people.
The development of the crystal lamp has undergone corresponding changes, and today, compared to the atmosphere of royalty and nobility, the modern crystal lamp is more petite; as a household item for royalty and nobility, the crystal lamp embodies a majesty and nobility everywhere. The modern crystal shape, however, is more simple and avant-garde, full of fashion.
Although not as luxurious as the “noblewoman”, the modern “girl-next-door” crystal lamp is gradually becoming more sophisticated and artistic.
As the quality of life improves, people’s cultural tastes and aesthetic concepts are also undergoing radical changes. Crystal lamps are entering people’s eyes with a ‘new’ look, in terms of design concept, from traditional to simple, from classical to modern, from European and American culture into Chinese culture.
In terms of cost and price control, it has evolved from pure copper with a frame of imported crystal to a steel frame with domestic crystal, from a pure crystal structure to a combination of crystal and Spanish lucite, crystal and crystal sand glass, crystal and super white glass.
