China-Fascinating Country with Business Opportunities in Automotive Lighting: Rainer Neumann, Direct PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 28 December 2009
When you travel to China, and watch especially the big cities, you can notice how fast things are changing.
I have experienced this tremendous effect in the last five years. China is despite the financial crisis still a growing country in economy.
People in China are very active, they are very much interested in to learn and to apply this knowledge to their further improvements. Although they have achieved a lot in the past they are always friendly, polite and open minded.
Something which we can learn from the Chinese!
Lighting is a big topic in China. Street lighting, illuminated buildings and advertisement are everywhere and LED light sources are very much appreciated.

In Automotive Lighting, the Chinese are also very much interested in LED applications. Some of the European cars produced in China do have LED Rear Lamps, where the original cars in Europe are equipped with tungsten halogen light sources. Even a rear fog lamp with LED’s can be noticed.
Only the bicycles still do not have lights!

In the future, more and more vehicles will be designed according to the Chinese requirements and demands. The phase of recording and copying will turn into individual Chinese design. The European Automotive Lighting industry has to be prepared for this phase in order to be competitive in the future.

As the year 2009 is ending soon, I would like to take the opportunity to wish all the Lighting family over the Globe.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Let’s move forward, there is a lot what we can do!
