LEDinside, a research unit of TrendForce Corp., has released the details of its price survey on warm white LED light bulbs (replacements for 40W and 60W incandescent light bulbs). For September, LED light bulb prices took a three percent plunge compared to the previous month, with the most significant drop for 40W LED bulb ASP in Japan at two percent and South Korea at six percent.

The price decline almost seems chronic with the ASP for 60W replacement experiencing the biggest setback in Europe at six percent. At present, the LED product prices for 40W and 60W replacements have declined to $23.1 and $42.3, respectively.

In particular, the South Korean makers' low price strategy for their new products generated a considerable amount of interest, with the ASP hitting a new low of $12.2 in September. As for 60W replacement, the LED bulb ASP in September plummeted to $42.3, a three percent drop compared to August. LEDinside added that the LED bulb ASPs for 40W and 60W replacements fell to $49.7/Klm and $52.3/Klm in September, respectively.
