WPG Americas (WPGA), a subsidiary of WPG Holdings, announced a new white paper that explores the advantages of UV LED systems over traditional disinfection technologies and an overview of LED modules brought to market by LG Innotek. The white paper was developed to help OEM's and design engineers identify and deliver the optimum UV LED sterilization system for their applications.
According to LEDinside, the market value of UV LED is estimated to reach US$ 1.224 billion in 2022 with growth momentums including surface sterilization, static water sterilization, and flowing water sterilization. The rising concerns regarding mercury health hazards, plummeting LED costs and emerging application areas of UV LEDs, are some of the factors driving growth of the market.
LG Innotek, a global materials and components company, has been utilizing its proprietary LED vertical chip technology to introduce new products providing more powerful sterilizing effects with higher light output.
"WPGA is excited to release this white paper discussing the importance of UV LEDs and its uses, continuing our commitment to providing the latest technology solutions," said Chris Miller, RVP Lighting and Power Solutions of WPG Americas. "LG Innotek has a robust offering of UV LEDs to address these important sterilization markets enhancing the quality of life."
