UV-C LED Market Research, 2032

The global UV-C LED market was valued at $381.2 million in 2022, and is projected to reach $8.1 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 36.6% from 2023 to 2032.

With the suitable UV intensity and exposure time, UV-C LED is proven to be effective to diminish viruses and bacteria including the pathogen of COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2. UV-C are smaller in size and flexible to adopt thereby attracting the attention of several industries for disinfection application. Disinfection times are very fast in UV-C technology. A typical disinfection cycle takes about 15 minutes. In this way, different rooms and areas are disinfected with a fast cycle time. Due to its simplicity, UV-C LED disinfection is extremely easy to understand. All surfaces within a certain distance will reach the guaranteed level of disinfection within the specified time, unless shaded. However, UV-C LED systems require very little maintenance due to their simple structure. These factors are thereby driving the growth of the  UV-C LED Industry.

UV-C LED Market

The UV-C LED market is segmented into Application and Region.

UV-C LED Market by Application

The UV-C LED market size is analyzed by application and region. On the basis of application, the market is categorized into water/air disinfection, sterilization, healthcare, industrial, sensing, and others. The water/air disinfection segment acquired the largest share in 2022 and healthcare segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR from 2023 to 2032.

UV-C LED Market by Region

On the basis of region, the UV-C LED market trends are analyzed across North America (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (the UK, Germany, France, and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East, and Africa).

Compared to other conventional UV lamps, UV-C LED has a number of benefits. They may be easily integrated with a variety of home equipment, including air conditioners, air purifiers, and even washing machines, due to their small size. UV-C LEDs are frequently used in portable goods. While it takes mercury lamps between 10 and 30 minutes to give the necessary UV dose for disinfection, they can start up right away and do not require preheating. 

In addition, UV-C LED market players over the years have further increased their investment to develop new products for disinfection application. For instance, AquiSense Technologies in 2021 launched its new UV-C LED disinfection system for water and wastewater treatment. Similarly, new developments across research institutions are also observed over the years. For instance, research personnels at the University of California in 2022, developed a new UV-C LED that emits less heat as compared to the traditional ones. This new development is further expected to make UV-C LED disinfection usable across wider applications over the years.

The UV-C LED market is expected to witness notable growth during the forecast period, owing to a rise in integration of the technology across consumer electronics. The COVID-19 outbreak has improved public awareness of disinfection, which has increased demand for related products and services. Due to its germicidal properties, UV-C LED has become increasingly popular among different home appliance makers. For instance, LG Electronics introduced a new refrigerator with ice and a water purifier in May 2020. This appliance uses UVC LED technology. Similar to this, Samsung introduced their new Samsung Bespoke Family Hub refrigerator in January 2022. This refrigerator includes an integrated UV-C LED light for air disinfection application. According to a test by the Korea Construction & Living Environment Research Institute (KCL), a UV-C LED is installed at the water purifier output of the refrigerator and can reduce Staphylococcus aureus and E. coli by 99.99%. Nevertheless, businesses like Hisense and Haier are also attempting to include UV-C LED into their products. Therefore, the incorporation of UV-C LED into consumer goods and home appliances has lucrative potential for the expansion of the global UV-C LED market outlook.
