LEDinside: Vietnam’s LED Lighting Demand Boost Caused By the Establishment of Factories And Infrastructure

According to a survey regarding the Southeast Asia market by LEDinside, a division of the global market research company TrendForce, judging by the overall dynamic of the LED industry around the world, it can be seen that the western market is experiencing a saturation and the price wars in the China market are rather heated-up; thus, many manufacturers are eyeing on other regions, such as Southeast Asia, South America, and the Middle East.
