​The Future of OSRAM and LEDVANCE Products

OSRAM has until now combined various business segments which it used to address both professional and private customers. In order to develop the optimum impact on the market in each business segment, the business segment with LED and traditional lamps as well as Smart Home products and LEDVANCE over-the-counter lights for end consumers under the LEDVANCE name will be operating independently, effective immediately.

As opposed to this, OSRAM will in future be focusing on digital lighting solutions, Smart City and Smart Building applications as well as Opto Semiconductors for commercial customers. OSRAM solutions will be structured under the following divisions: Specialty Lighting with Automotive Lighting, Projection Lamps and Event Lighting, Opto Semiconductors with its cross-market offer of LED, infrared and laser components, as well as Lighting Solutions & Systems, the solution business together with lights and electronic components for the project sector and wholesale business.

Frequently Asked Questions:

   Who will my contact partner for service or sales be in the future?  

 Your contact partner will as far as possible be the same in the future, since after the separation, those employees responsible will be moving over to the new business together with the products. 

   When will the separation be legally concluded? 

 From (the beginning of) July 2016. 

   What will happen to my OSRAM warranty? 


Warranties will be preserved. The first contact partner in the event of a warranty claim is always the dealer which the consumer purchased the product from. The warranty arrangements will still be valid after sale of the lamp business.

   Which products can I buy from LEDVANCE? 

 LEDVANCE supplies specialist shops and end consumers with a wide range of products ranging from LED and halogen lamps, right through to Smart Home products and LEDVANCE brand OTC lamps. 

   Why is OSRAM selling its lamp division? 

 The lighting industry finds itself in a continuous state of change. In order to be able to respond to this change and remain competitive in the long term, businesses like OSRAM have to adapt to this. Through independence, LEDVANCE will gain more streamlined structures and creative freedom which will enable the new company to react quicker to changing market conditions and individual customer requirements. 

   What is the difference between OSRAM and LEDVANCE? 

 LEDVANCE is focused on general lighting for end customers, whereas OSRAM is also developing digital networked lighting solutions and components for industry and commercial customers. 

   Will OSRAM continue to offer Smart Home products/LIGHTIFY? 


Yes, OSRAM is still pressing ahead with technological development of the LIGHTIFY Internet of Things Platform (IoT).

LIGHTIFY will be distributed for the household sector via LEDVANCE, whereas LIGHTIFY Professional as well as the IoT platform and its respective services which belong to both fields will be marketed by OSRAM.

   Will I continue to receive the OSRAM quality which I am accustomed to? 

 Yes. In general, the responsible employees and plants have moved over to the new company LEDVANCE together with the respective products. LEDVANCE products will however in certain isolated cases continue to be produced at OSRAM. Nothing will initially change about the production processes. Product quality will remain the same.
