And according to China research organization, Chinese LED lighting manufacturers recorded total export value of over $5 million for LED lamps used for growing plants during Jan.-Feb. 2015.
As much as 90% of China's production of plant-use LED lamps is for export. The research organization indicated that nearly 75% of makers of such LED lamps are located in Guangdong Province, southern China, due to clustering of LED packaging service providers and LED component makers.
The research organization forecasts that there will be a large increase in the number of plant factories in China, demand for plant-use LED lamps there will grow fast over 2018~2020.
