Seoul-based materials and component manufacturer LG Innotek (a subsidiary of South Korean electronics company LG Group) plans to launch the brand InnoUV (combining ‘innovation’ and ‘ultraviolet’), applying the name to all 40 types of UV LED packages and modules that it has developed (with varying UV wavelengths and light outputs, depending on application).

UV LEDs eliminate germs and viruses (depending on their wavelength) and are used for water, air and surface disinfection, medicine, biotechnology and curing and light exposure equipment because of their ability to chemically react with particular substances. UV LEDs are eco-friendly because they emit light without using any chemical substances or heavy metals. They also offer high usability, due to their long lifespan, high durability and small form factor (under 1cm).

LG Innotek says that InnoUV reflects its aim to make increase the sterilizing power of UV LEDs. The firm’s record-output 100mW UV-C LED (unveiled last November) can wipe out 99.9% of Salmonella (a cause of food poisoning) in just 3.4 seconds, it is reckoned.

LG Innotek says that companies can use the InnoUV brand logo on the exterior, packaging and promotion materials of their finished UV LED products after they go through a prior negotiation process with LG Innotek.

According to market research firm Yole Développement, the UV LED market is expected to grow more than sevenfold from $151.9m in 2016 to $1.1178bn in 2021.

LG Innotek is holding a UV LED Forum on 27 June at the Kyobashi Trust Tower in Tokyo (the third forum, following others in Seoul in March and Shenzhen in May).
