The October sales figures posted by 6 Taiwanese LED firms provide more reason for Western industry players such as CREE, RBCN, AIXG, and VECO to be concerned about near-term industry trends. 5 of the 6 companies posted Y/Y sales declines, with 3 reporting declines north of 25%. SemiLEDs (LEDS), whose manufacturing facilities are in Taiwan, reported weak earnings yesterday.
