Jointly organized by Bureau of Foreign Trade (MOEA), Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taiwan Lighting Fixture Export Association (TLFEA), 2018 Taiwan International Lighting Show, with 114 global companies manning 420 booths, just ended another successful year on April 28th. The exhibition hosted several launch parties and forums, as well as 153 one-on-one procurement meetings matching 38 Taiwan lighting companies and 20 important buyers from 11 countries including the U.S., Brazil, Russia, India, Germany, and Israel.

The four-day exhibition attracted nearly ten thousand visitors from over 40 countries and around one thousand foreign buyers from the U.S., China, Japan, South Korea, Philippine, with 29.8 percent of whom from Southeast Asia.

Felipe Lopes Bastos, product manager from LEMCA ILUMINACAO, a professional lamp manufacturer located in Brazil, noted then that he was looking for LED drivers with stable quality and reasonable price, and found what he has needed in the procurement meetings. Mr. Lee, CEO of BTS, an American LED lighting company that has been cooperating with Taiwanese suppliers for a long period of time, also praised Taiwanese suppliers for their friendly attitude, impressive responsibility and high reliability, which have combined to make Taiwan a prime option for his company to purchase needed products.

With more than 100 visitors attending, the international lighting forum was another highlight at the show. During the forum, Mr. Jan Denneman, chairman of Global Lighting Association, said in response to the rising demands of end-users that “Human Factors” technology will be the turning point of the lighting industry. Meanwhile, Mr. Yu Yung-tao, general manager of Philip Electronics Ltd., took the firm's “LiFi” products as an example and forecast that smart lighting products will gain increasing popularity among customers in the market. On another front, Lo Jung-huang, deputy president of Nan Ya Photonics Incorporation (NYPI), shared that NYPI has integrated multiple technologies from different industries, like lighting and security, to provide several cutting-edge solutions for smart street lighting systems incorporated with security systems, DC energy concentration systems, medical treatment area lighting auxiliary systems, etc. It is estimated that that those solutions will greatly enhance the lighting efficiency and stability in the near future.

During the first three days of the exhibition, the organizers hosted many “TechSTAGE” new technology presentations to showcase advanced, innovative lighting products, including an LED light engine and customized optical lens from Shinyu Light, CoolStar® series cooler from MechaTronix, Multicolor Smart LED Lamp from CAI HUI Technology, and many other.

Benefiting from well developed local LED and semiconductor sectors, Taiwan's lighting industry has effectively taken advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT) to develop smart lighting featuring human factors technology, a trend as suggested in the wide-ranging products and technologies displayed by local exhibitors at Taiwan International Lighting Show 2018. The trade fair successfully attracted suppliers throughout the industry to show off the latest products and technologies, providing visitors a close look at the trends of the future lighting industry. With an outstanding turnout, the show will likely lure more international companies to exhibit their innovative products next year.
