UV LED在UV照明市場上急速成長，其市場佔有率從2012年的11％(5,300萬美元)至2018年預計達到5億2,100萬美元。儘管如此，UV LED光源面臨著許多技術問題。譬如，採用AIN(氮化鋁合金)為基礎的材料，難以製造高品質的薄膜，還有UV LED設備製造、包裝的技能勞工和資源的不足導致照明生產量低。由於近幾年許多企業進入UV LED產業，預計技術開發將更為成熟。
本報告提供近幾年在LED產業上受矚目的UV LED專利的詳細分析、主要應用的技術開發趨勢與預測、全球主要專利分析、整體專利趨勢分析、主要專利趨勢分析、發行專利分析，及UV LED技術的時間軸分析等彙整，為您概述為以下內容。
This report is intended to provide in-depth analysis of UV LED patents which has been receiving growing interest in the LED industry. This report will also cover the market forecast (2012-2018) to provide a comprehensive overview of the UV LED industry, the related companies and the research institutes in the two aspects- markets and patents.
As UV lamps are rapidly replacing mercury with the help of high efficiency and high output, a lot of efforts to use them in various applications are being made. This is because UV LEDs using UV light sources have more advantages than existing Hg lamps as follows.
With these advantages, UV LED products are expected to replace existing mercury UV lamps rapidly. In fact, UV LEDs have already started to replace mercury-vapor lamps in many applications as UV curing and counterfeit detection. In addition, there are on-going efforts to apply the UV LED technology to the fields of agriculture and medicine and some products are being deployed at initial prototype stage.
In this sense, UV LEDs are expected to show rapid growth in the UV lamp market. The share of UV LEDs is expected to grow from 11% ($53M) in 2012 to 62 %( $521M) in 2018.
Nevertheless, UV LED light sources are facing many technical challenges. Using AlN-based materials, for instance, makes it difficult to fabricate high-quality thin-film, and lack of skilled labor and resources in UV LED device fabrication and packaging causes low light outputs. As a lot of companies have recently participated in the UV LED industry, technology development will be further matured.
In this context, SNE Research has published a patent analysis report on UV LEDs. The data used in this report extracted from patents filed in Korea, the United States, Japan and Europe until June, 2013. From this, of 3,563 patents, 1,326 valid patents were extracted. These patent data are to be a good help to attain prior art data or related problems, technological progress, and other useful information for exploring novel ideas and solutions for possible problems. It can also serve as a useful tool to prevent or prepare future patent disputes in advance through investigation of third-party patent rights.
This report is also expected to be a great help to examine the patent trends and relevant key patents in the field of UV LEDs.
