In the first quarter, a number of LED enterprises full orders, capacity utilization increased, based on optimistic expectations of the market broke out, many companies will put on the agenda of new capacity planned capacity expansion to become the midstream term goal. Continued explosive growth of the downstream lighting market, driven by the upstream production release, the overall industry climate index upward.
But the North American lighting market opportunities and challenges.
