How to describe the UVC market now? I will say: Chaotic. But it’s also full of attractive because when the product supply chain becomes stable, there will not be good opportunities anymore.
So, what are these Chaotic things in the UVC light market now?
1. Fake Power-Some table lamps show 38w, actually only 28w or less. Some UVC Tube bar marked 100w, actually only 60~80w.
Below is the Electric testing for the UVC light in our lab, the actual result is <75w, but supplier said it’s 100w ↓
We tested several pcs UVC lights(60-100w), the provider said it’s CE, but they failed at the EMI testing
I was testing EMI for the UVC light in the ISO17025 lab↓
The result was fail ↓
3.Some Quality issues:
Appearance issues ↓
Safety issue: Earth cable not connected well ↓
Bad Soldering on the ballast: may cause failure during the lifespan ↓
4. Fake product use LED UVC: seller hint it can kill COVID 19, but it is almost a lie.
I have already shared a lot of this if you want to know it, please see my post here:
What are Attractive things:
1. They can really provide 254nm or 254+185nm(ozone), to kill the coronavirus, to save people’s life.
2. The market is good with a good margin
3.Bright future: it’s a good chance for a lighting business company to get involved in the health industry, which is proved a huge & long term market. Now we can see for the big Giant like Philips or GE, they are saying goodbye to the lighting business, but they are keeping the health\hospital business.
