The COVID-19 outbreak has positively impacted manufacturers due to rising market demand for UV LED devices for sterilization and disinfection. According to a report published by MDPI, in July 2021, the use of UV-C radiation helps in disinfecting the surfaces and inactivates COVID-19. Furthermore, in early 2020, several major market leaders and research institutes were engaged in the development of medical and healthcare devices to decrease the spread of coronavirus. For instance, in May 2020, Seoul Viosys partnered with the Korean University to demonstrate the efficacy of its new product, the Violeds UV LED module. It demonstrated that its LED module can eliminate 99.9% of the coronavirus with a 30-second dose on the surface.
 

Increasing uptake of UV-A LEDs in forensic applications is expected to spur the market expansion

The UV-A segment dominated more than 55% of the UV LED market share in 2020 and will witness 18% growth rate through 2027 led by several high-end characteristics offered by UV-A LEDs such as low-power consumption, effective elimination, and short-wavelength energy. These characteristics increase their adoption in forensic investigations for inspection of biological stains, untreated blood, and latent fingerprints at crime scenes, among others. Adding to this, UV-A LEDs offer a low cost of ownership, higher efficiency, and miniaturization properties, which add significant advantages over conventional curing technologies, such as fluorescent and mercury, fueling the industry demand. Companies are extensively focusing on adopting UV LED technology to offer high-end products and stay competitive in the market.

The disinfection & sterilization segment will hold 30% of revenue share by 2027 on account of the rising adoption of disinfection & sterilization systems in water treatment and purification facilities. This acceptance is driven by the growing awareness of the importance of drinking treated water as a result of rising concerns about water-borne diseases. According to a report published by UNICEF, in July 2021, a total of 5.8 billion people had accessed purified drinking water, reducing the illness and death ratio from water-borne diseases. To protect families and houses from common pathogenic sources of water-borne illnesses, UV-C LEDs are integrated into POU water purification systems. These UV LED are employed in these systems to defend against bacteria and other microbial pollutants. The increasing usage of advanced disinfection & sterilization systems in European economies will propel the growth opportunities for ultraviolet LED manufacturers.  Various players are engaged in innovating new products by integrating ultraviolet LEDs to gain a competitive share in the market.
