Rare earth prices rise, energy-saving lamps enterprises accelerate transformation of LED

Recently, the price of trichromatic phosphors with rare earth as the main raw material has reached a new high. As the price of raw materials rises, the price of energy-saving lamps in each market is also rising. Industry insiders said that the energy-saving lamp industry is facing serious challenges. However, the energy-saving lamp industry is in trouble, but unexpectedly opens a door to more energy-saving and environmentally friendly LED lamps.
Since March, the price of rare earth has increased by 10 times, and energy-saving lighting has high efficiency, energy saving, good color rendering and long life. Compared with ordinary incandescent lamps, energy-saving lamps can save 60-80 energy and have a long service life of 4-6 times. The energy-saving lamp belongs to a kind of fluorescent lamp, which illuminates the phosphor coating on the inner wall of the lamp tube to achieve the purpose of illuminating, and the phosphor powder coated on the wall of the lamp tube accounts for more than 75% of the proportion of the raw material. Since April this year, the price of rare earth has skyrocketed.
In March, it was still 280 yuan a kilogram. Now it has risen to 2,600 yuan a kilogram. The quality is good and expensive. A person in charge said that this has seriously affected the development of the energy-saving lamp industry. A 100W ordinary energy-saving lamp is priced at 28 yuan, and the incandescent lamp with the same brightness in the market only needs 1.5 yuan or 2 yuan. Therefore, some enterprises rely heavily on government subsidies.
It is reported that the subsidy amount of an energy-saving lamp can reach 50% of its ex-factory price. In addition, local governments will also give a certain proportion of financial subsidies when promoting energy-saving lamps. Under subsidies, the price of energy-saving lamps below 45W is comparable to that of ordinary incandescent lamps. However, this balance has been broken by this wave of price increases. LED lights are expected to provoke the rise in the price of energy-saving heavy-duty raw materials, causing serious internal injuries to energy-saving lamps, but inadvertently provide space for the development of LED lamps.
Silicon for making LED lamps is very common on the earth. The rare earth used to make a LED chip is in micrograms, while the energy-saving lamp requires a few grams. More importantly, the price difference between the two is shrinking. For example, the most popular compact energy-saving lamps for household use, the previous price was more than ten yuan, and now it has risen to more than 30 yuan, while the price of the same power LED lamps was about 80 yuan, and recently dropped to 50 yuan. In the face of the difference of 20 yuan, many people think that LED lamps are more energy-efficient, controllable, and contain no mercury, and will tend to buy LED lamps. Li Yuzhi said.
LEDs are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly than energy-saving lamps, and the price may be declining by 20 in the future. It is an inevitable trend to replace energy-saving lamps with LED lamps. Many manufacturers have moved from the energy-saving lamp industry to the LED industry. Small energy-saving lamps should be actively adjusted. Affected by this round of price hikes, it is a small enterprise that produces energy-saving lamps.
It has been reported that many energy-saving lamps companies in Fujian and Zhejiang have closed down. The energy-saving lamp industry is a labor-intensive industry. There are problems such as low technical level, high cost and heavy pollution. The rare earth is also a valuable strategic resource of the country, and the price of raw materials remains high. Liang Yueshan believes that SMEs of energy-saving lamps should take the initiative to adjust and develop new energy-saving products such as LED lamps with higher technology content, more environmental protection, more energy saving and more promising development. This is a wise move.

Working Principle
The feed hopper sends materials into the grinding chamber. With the impact from the blade cutting edge and the knife holder, rotary knife and the fixed knife simultaneously cut and smash materials. The crushed materials automatically discharge from the outlet, under the effect of the rotating centrifugal force.

Our CSJ series Rough Grinding Machine is designed to smash hard and solid materials like plastics, copper wires, Chinese medicinal herb, and rubber. It finds a wide application in pharmacy, chemical, metallurgy, food, and construction industries, etc. In addition, our rough pulverizer could also be matched with Microparticle Pulverizer and supermicro pulverizer for the pretreatment before processing.
