Stanley Electric shifting focus on LED headlights
Intends to boost global sales of LED headlights to account for 20% of its overall sales by 2017
Japanese automotive lighting equipment major Stanley Electric intends to boost global sales of LED headlights to account for 20% of its overall sales tally by 2017, up from around 1% currently, reports the Nikkei. The company recently began mass-producing high-end and low-cost models and now offers three types of LED headlights, including the standard variety. It aims to make a full switch to LED headlights from HID (high-intensity discharge) versions. The company plans to market the low-cost LED headlights overseas, including China.
