Ultra-violet LED (UV LED) is a device which emits UV radiation having wavelength of less than 400nm and has integrated features such as compactness, superior performance, and cost effectiveness. It provides products in almost all segments where high performance and proper safety is required. It plays a crucial role in many applications such as curing, disinfection, phototherapy, equipment sterilization, printing, forensic, and so on. The consumers’ demand for UV LED is expected to increase rapidly in the next five years owing to the availability of technologically advanced UV LED devices, increased demand for UVA and UVC products, and their increasing utility in the disinfection and curing applications.
