The field of lighting has witnessed some spectacular technology developments in the past few decades, especially, in the subfields of fluorescent and solid state lighting. Conventional incandescent bulbs are likely to reach obsolescence with the arrival of high-brightness LEDs or light emitting diodes. LED lighting has emerged as a favorite solid state lighting technology because of its unique features that include high energy efficiency, long working life, and robust weather proof design.

Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are semiconductors that convert electricity into light through the movement of electrons. The earlier applications of LED included the indicators on hi-fi systems (such as routers, switches), standby lights on television, indicators for operation on adaptors, and other electronic equipment. LED has evolved as a major lighting technology with a longer life; and greater durability, flexibility, energy-efficiency, and non-toxicity than other lighting solutions. There are three different types of LED’s; namely miniature LED, high-brightness LED, and ultra-violet LED (UV-LED). These LEDs find use in different applications depending upon the power factor, which is categorized as high powered, low powered, and medium powered. The various LED fabrication processes include metal organic chemical vapor deposition, molecular beam epitaxy, liquid phase epitaxy, and vapor phase epitaxy. The major applications in which LEDs find their use are: - general lighting, automotive lighting and backlighting.

High luminous efficacy and energy consumption make LEDs an alternative choice for lighting as compared to traditional and green lighting technologies. SSL transitioning phenomenon is not just restricted to large organizations and industrial sector, but many groceries, supermarkets, convenient stores, and households are also adopting these energy efficient products. These service stores make use of LED lighting system in ‘open deck cases’ that make food packages attractive and appetizing.
