How to Start LED Light Manufacturing Business

LED stands for light emitting diode. Currently, LED lights are becoming very popular day-by-day. LED lights are available in wide range of colors from 2700K to 6500K which are dark, yellow, mild yellow and ultra white. Initiating a full scale LED light manufacturing includes a large-scale factory operation with definitely a complex production process. However, any individual can initiate an LED  light assembling unit as a small and medium scale manufacturing operation.

The key strength of LED lighting is reduced power consumption. LED’s are available with at the most Lumen efficiency of 110 Lum/Watt compared to 65-80 Lum/Watt of CFL and FTL, 45 Lum/Watt of Mercury vapour and 75 Lum/Watt of metal halide or 94 Lum/Watt of Sodium Vapour. The operational life of current white LED lamps is 50,000-80,000 burning hours as compared to 5000-10000hrs of CFL and FLT, 18000 hrs of T5 lamp, 5000 hrs of Mercury vapour, 8000 hrs of Metal halide and 8000 hrs HPSV lamp.

LED Light Manufacturing Market Potential

Total electricity and maintenance cost during the lifetime of LED bulbs is around 1/10th of that of normal bulbs. LED Home Lights can be designed to consume about 0.6 Watt and are nearly equal in luminance to a 25 watt incandescent light bulb or an 11 Watt CFL lamp- with about 90% saving of energy. If all the lights are replaced with LED lights it will save 50 percent energy and 5 billion units of power every year.

LED Street light with solar panel is the best solution for minimizing electrical power consumption from hydroelectric power stations so far available. You can spread the huge amount of power from the hydroelectric plant in this manner. Also, this combination is the most energy efficient and green lighting solution available today. Several state of India undertakes the LED lighting projects widely. Therefore, it will open up a huge business opportunity for the local LED industry.

With so many advantages and potential applications, LED is sure to succeed in large markets such as India. Thus, LED light manufacturing is a profitable investment opportunity for the new entrepreneurs.

LED Light Manufacturing Business Registration

First of all, you will need to obtain different registrations and licenses from Government authorities. However, it depends on the manufacturing process and what type of LED light you are producing,

  1. Company registration with ROC
  2. Obtain Trade License from Municipal authority
  3. Udyog Aadhaar MSME Registration
  4. BIS Certification
  5. Bureau of Energy Efficiency Certification
  6. NOC from Pollution Control Board
  7. GST Registration

LED Light Manufacturing Machine

LED light manufacturing or assembling process is complex. Basic Knowledge and skill are required in starting any type of unit operation. It is difficult to list machinery as a whole. You will need to select machines according to the specific type of LED you want to produce and the raw material. Some of the common machines are

  1. LED PCB assembly machine
  2. LED lights assembly machine
  3. High speed LED mounting machine
  4. LED chip SMD mounting machine
  5. Candle light assembly machine for LED
  6. LED tube light assembly machine etc.

In starting a LED light manufacturing business, it is advisable to have a detailed project plan or business plan. This will help you in getting information about area requirement, machinery cost, working capital investment and financial analysis like break even and ROI.
