Photonics21 WG 4: Emerging Lighting
Swiss Emerging Lighting Market - SWOT analysis
Photonics Enabled Industries
Strengths Weakness
  • Research activities for customized
    solutions, only.
  • New interesting developments
    mainly around low cost high efficient
  • Good pull from industry to develop
    OLED market segment midterm.
  • Integration and special solutions
    in the focus of the industry.
  • No major LED manufacture in
  • Funding and development activities
    small compared to energy related
  • Labor and production cost too
    high in Switzerland for significant
    manufacturing efforts.
  • Difficult market access for new
    technologies (inexperienced
    SMEs with little support).
Opportunities Threats
  • Good technology base and research
  • Funding of organic solar cell research
    yields additional activities
    around high brightness OLED development.
  • Momentum and national market
    not sufficient for a sustainable development.
  • Continuous prize / cost pressure
    from Asia.
