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.

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.
