  • The LED industry has added significant MOCVD metalorganic chemical vapour deposition - equipment used to make LEDs capacity over the last 2 years, some of it to meet genuine demand, but a majority of the incremental capacity adds were encouraged by subsidies in China.

  • According to Taiwan-based LED chipmaker Tekcore, manufacturers with yields less than 60% will likely incur losses with both metalorganic gases and sapphire substrates in tight supply.
