On the way into the digital future of the lighting industry
The lighting market is going through a period of technological change, with semiconductor-based technologies such as LEDs and OLEDs presenting customers with new possibilities in terms of efficiency, quality of light and flexibility. As a premium supplier, OSRAM is playing a leading role here.
For 110 years the trademark OSRAM stands for innovative and sustainable developments in the global lighting market. Today, OSRAM is one of the world’s largest suppliers of products and solutions for a wide range of customer requirements – from modules to luminaires and high-efficiency light management systems.
OSRAM focuses all its resources on the subject of light, actively supporting its customers in making the best choices to meet their requirements. With more than 33,000 employees in around 150 countries, OSRAM develops tailor-made solutions to cover the specific needs of its customers.
Passion for light, solutions for life
Change is written into our DNA. OSRAM develops intelligent and sustainable products to help conserve resources worldwide and to improve the quality of life through light. Artificial lighting is responsible for around 20% of worldwide power consumption. This means that highly energy-efficient lighting can save as much CO2 worldwide as can be absorbed by a forest twice the size of Italy. At present, more than 70% of our turnover comes from energy-saving lighting solutions.
LED technology is already a crucial factor here. LED-based products now account for around 40% of OSRAM’s total sales. OSRAM covers the entire LED value added chain, from components to light management solutions. And with around 8000 LED patents OSRAM has a considerable influence on the further development of LED technologies.
As a “pure light player”, OSRAM is a strong global brand, and as a leading innovator in all application and technology sectors it is shaping the digital future of the lighting industry.Press: OSRAM completes sale of Ledvance, 3 March 2017 On the sale of the general lighting business
