LED Popularity in Vehicles Continues to Grow

LED Market Projection

They've been around for years, and it's way past offical: LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) have caught on in a big way, especially in the last 5 years, and marketing research shows no indication of this trend diminishing anytime soon.

"LEDs aren't just for LCDs and home lighting anymore.  The same cost/savings benefits you've heard about for other markets also apply to the automotive industry.  People are starting to think long term with respects to general maintence and performance for their vehicles.  It also doesn't hurt that the prices are starting to come down as the demand continues to grow."

They are used in so many applications already - for home, office and especially on vehicles – cars, pickups and big rigs.  These lights do not use bulbs that can burn out and need replacing, and use much less energy.  The long life – in many cases years – of these light emitting diodes more than makes up for their higher price since they don’t need to be replaced nearly as often as incandescent bulbs.

In addition, LED lights come in a wide variety of colors; some of them even change color while lit, creating some very interesting effects.  Over time, the money saving features becomes apparent in lower fuel and energy bills.  On vehicles, especially trucks and big rigs, the more lights the better for high visibility and safety.  In addition, many truckers have used them to make a statement – lots of lights and colors to match the paint and striping jobs on their rigs.  LEDs are available in a wide variety of sizes, styles and shapes to satisfy most requirements.  A full range of these products are available at Virgo Fleet Supplies in Brooklyn, NY.
