LEDinside noted that global average retail prices of 40W LED bulbs were down 0.9% to US $10.8, while 60W LED bulbs average retail prices slid 2.4% to US $14.5.
“Compared to the sharp price falls observed in July and August 2015, the recovering LED market in September has eased LED bulb and package price drop,” said Allen Yu, an analyst of LEDinside.

Leading international LED package brands including Lumileds, Samsung, Seoul Semiconductor and LG Innotek have all lowered product prices. In the short term, it will be difficult for the market to break free from anemic market conditions. Chinese LED package manufacturers overall production utilization rates remained low, and most face oversupply issues that has led to the continual pricing downtrend.

Bulb prices stabilized after sharp price declines throughout July and August, but some manufacturers have continued to promote LED bulb package deals. For instance, prices of Cree’s four 6W LED bulb packed package (which has 450 lumens (lm) output) plunged 17.7% from US $27 to US$ 22.22. The four-packed Cree LED bulb prices have been slashed more than 40% since July 2015.
