2017 Top 100 LED Lighting Companies Released, How to Maintain Sustained Income Growth
In early June, the “2017 China LED Lighting Industry Top 100” complete list was announced, which attracted the attention of the industry.
As we all know, the domestic LED industry has already gone through the spring of vigorous development, with serious product homogeneity, fierce price wars, market downturn, low profits, and rising labor and raw material prices. In the context of the industry's great turmoil, the backward productivity and management capabilities are facing the established outcome of being eliminated.
So, how do the LED companies that are shortlisted this time maintain sustained revenue growth and stand out from the crowd?
The Best Management Consulting Group, which has served LED companies such as Leyard Optoelectronics, Feidiao Electric, Eagle Electric, Alto Electronics, etc., has a comprehensive and profound understanding of this. The reporter interviewed Best Founder Zhang Zhenghua, He said: “Amidst all kinds of things, only those who change can survive. These companies that have entered the top 100 are pioneers in the LED industry. They stimulate profit growth and maintain corporate vitality through cross-industry innovation, mergers and acquisitions integration, blue ocean development, and internal management upgrades. Whoever can find the right direction for transformation and upgrading will have the initiative in the future market. ”
The giants have crossed borders and opened up the industry in Xinjiang.
Representative companies: Lianjian Optoelectronics, Leyard, Lehman Co., Ltd.
At present, a competitive landscape in the LED industry has taken shape. Under the influence of factors such as the macro-economy and the weak growth of the LED industry, companies must consider improving their sustained profitability and need to explore new profit growth points. Especially for LED industry giants, cross-border upgrades and opening up new territories are imperative. Implementing the strategy of dual main business or multiple main business is the best way for an enterprise to obtain new profit growth points.
There are many examples of this among the top 100 companies in the industry in 2017. Lianjian Optoelectronics has flourished in the field of digital media, established Linkage Culture, and acquired companies such as Timeshare Media, Youtuo Public Relations, Precision Focus, and Estar, in an effort to build a huge digital media group; Lehman Co., Ltd. has been since 2015 Pursuing the "LED+Sports" dual-main business development strategy and participating in the establishment of the Lehman Kaixing Sports Culture Fund. Obviously, Lehman shares will go farther and farther in the sports industry; Leyard went deep into the cultural media business and acquired Jin Companies such as Da Lighting, Internet Yida, Lifeng Culture, Gionee and Pinneng Optoelectronics have achieved significant business integration effects and created a new type of “urban culture, tourism, performing arts”business model……
The above case analysis shows that whether it is cross-border to sports, digital media advertising, or cultural media, financial electronics, the strategic upgrades of industry giants are based on the original core resources of the company. At the same time, the main business brand remains strong.
For LED companies, cross-border transformation is indeed full of temptations, but the risks of setting foot in another field are also obvious. The degree of grasp of the market in new areas, the ability to resist risks, and the level of corporate management are all facing challenges. Therefore, most cross-border transformations occur in more mature LED companies.
