OSRAM is one of the two leading light manufacturers in the world. The company’s portfolio covers the entire value chain from components – including lamps, opto semiconductors like light-emitting diodes (LED) – to electronic control gears as well as complete luminaires, light management systems and lighting solutions. The company, which is very much internationally oriented, has around 39,000 employees worldwide and generated a revenue of 5.4 billion Euros in fiscal year 2012. More than 70% of its revenue come from energy-efficient products. The company’s business activities have been focusing on light – and hence on quality of life – for over 100 years.
Global leader with future technologies
OSRAM is a leading player across the entire lighting value chain. This holds true both for classic lighting as well as new technologies. With LED-based products making up a share of about 25 percent of the total turnover, the company is setting the trend with regard to technological changes in the lighting market. The expenditure for research and development is at approximately 5.5% of turnover.
Light for every walk of life
The highest sales are achieved by the General Lighting division. OSRAM is the world's number one supplier of automotive lamps and LED for vehicles. OSRAM is also one of the market leaders in the field of electronic control gear (ECG) for lamps. Business with optical semiconductors is growing rapidly and has taken on major strategic importance. The special display-optic lamp sector is also characterised by a high rate of innovation.
Over 100 years of OSRAM
The OSRAM brand name was registered way back in 1906 and is one of the oldest trade names still recognised throughout the world.On July 1, 1919 AEG, Siemens & Halske AG and Deutsche Gasglühlicht AG (Auer Gesellschaft) merged their light bulb production activities. Today, Siemens AG is the sole shareholder in OSRAM GmbH.
