Shenzhen still primary LED lighting hub in China

The first installment of this three-part series takes a look at the factors making the city an industry leader.

Backed by several locational advantages, Shenzhen remains the principal source of LED lighting products in China. Approximately 60 percent of national output comes from the local industry, which consists of more than 1,000 companies.

Various diode-fitted fixtures can be procured from manufacturers in the city. Targeting the midrange or high-end, most releases are compliant with CE, FCC, UL and RoHS requirements.

Nurturing the development of the sector is the presence of a comprehensive support industry in Guangdong province. Components such as PCBs, power supplies and cables can be purchased within Shenzhen or from neighboring cities. Easy access to such resources enables makers to manage logistics efficiently and sustain large-volume production.

A strong transportation infrastructure bolsters this advantage. The city hosts one of the world’s major ports. Nine harbors serve as the bases of operations for numerous container companies, facilitating importation of inputs and delivery of orders.

Shenzhen’s proximity to Hong Kong allows goods to be transported directly via international freight lines in the latter’s international airport, which is only about an hour’s drive away. Makers likewise benefit from the technology and marketing information afforded by their counterparts in the SAR.

Strong government support also contributes significantly to the advancement of the local industry. Guangdong hosts the National Semiconductor Photoelectric Products Testing Laboratory, which was set up to ensure that models are up to international standards. Located in Jiangmen, the facility is equipped with advanced spectrometers, liquid chromatography systems and cutting-edge photometer equipment. Apart from providing technological support, provincial and local agencies are promoting development of the line by encouraging consumption. Guangdong will be invested in the adoption of LED lights in roadways, government agencies and other public areas.
