In November 2011, China issued the “Cleavage Elimination Route”. The route pointed out that the transition period from November 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012; the import and sale of 100 watts and above is prohibited from October 1, 2012. Lighting incandescent lamps; import and sale of ordinary lighting incandescent lamps of 60 watts and above is prohibited from October 1, 2014; mid-term evaluation period from October 1, 2015 to September 30, 2016; prohibited from October 1, 2016 Import and sale of general lighting incandescent lamps of 15 watts or more; or adjust according to the results of the mid-term evaluation.

Incandescent lamps have been eliminated, leaving market space for the development of energy-saving lamps. In the next few years, the output and demand for incandescent lamps will gradually decrease, and energy-saving lamps will play a leading role.

Faced with better development opportunities, energy-saving lamps are also facing other problems. In 2011, the state increased taxes on rare earth resources, causing the price of fluorescent powder for lamps to soar. Since March 2011, the phosphor has experienced a sharp rise and fall in a short period of six months: first, it has surged nine times in four months, from 300 yuan/kg to 3,000 yuan/kg. From August, it suddenly began to turn down, and by mid-September, it had fallen to around 1,300 yuan / kg. The rising price of phosphors has led to an increase in the cost pressure of energy-saving lamps, which affects the operation of enterprises. If the industry fails to smoothly increase the cost of transmission, it will inevitably bring about a new round of integration in the industry.

On the other hand, LED lighting has warmed up in recent years. LED lighting is more environmentally friendly and energy efficient than energy-saving lamps, and has an advantage in product performance. In the 2012 market, LED lamps have less penetration in civil lighting due to their higher prices. However, it should be noted that as technology is updated, the price of LED lights decreases at a faster rate each year. In the next three to five years, the price of LED lights is expected to drop to the level of energy-saving lamps. At that time, LED lights will enter the turning point of general lighting, and energy-saving lamps face enormous challenges.
