On the 17th, Panasonic issued a press release announcing that in order to cope with the Minamata Convention on Mercury (Mercury), the production of 31 mercury lamps will be completed by the end of June 2020. In the future, the lineup of LED lighting products will be strengthened and converted into LED lighting.

The Minamata Convention entered into force in the summer of 2017 and will prohibit the production and import and export of mercury lamps from 2021.

Because of the large amount of light, mercury lamps are widely used in stadiums, factories, parks, street lamps, etc., which have high ceilings. The price of LED lighting with the same amount of light is 2-3 times that of mercury lamps, but the life expectancy is about 5 times. Less than half of the electricity, so in terms of total cost, LED lighting has an advantage.

Panasonic pointed out that after the mercury lamp is lit, it takes about 5 minutes for the brightness to gradually increase to the highest, but the LED illumination can reach almost 100% brightness with a single light.

According to Sankei Biz and Co-Communication, Panasonic Mercury lamps have an annual shipment of about 200,000 units and a market share of about 1/3 in the Japanese market. However, mercury lamps are easy to attract flying insects (LEDs are less likely to be close to natural light). The shortcomings such as the problem, the current proportion of sales of overall lighting fixtures in Japan has shrunk to only about 1%.
