NEMA, the association of electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers, has revealed that its index for LED A-line replacement lamps rose for the second consecutive quarter in 3Q13. Shipments during the quarter registered a gain of 71.9 percent QoQ, while shipments increased 60.2 percent on a YoY basis, the association noted.

Halogen A-line lamp shipments improved as well, eclipsing the level during the same period last year by 140.7 percent. Sales of incandescent A-line lamps returned to positive territory during the quarter, following declines in the previous three quarters, advancing by 16.2 percent. However, the index declined 14.8 percent versus 3Q12. The index for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) dipped on both a quarterly and annual basis, declining by 2.8 and 11.2 percent, respectively.

Despite their rapid gains, LED A-line lamps constitute a fraction of the market. The share of LED A-line lamps increased 20 basis points to 0.7 percent during the quarter. Shares of halogen and incandescent A-line lamps also grew, reaching 9.6 percent and 55.1 percent, respectively. Meanwhile, CFLs gave back 4.5 percentage points, falling to a share of 34.6 percent.
