OSRAM is a global provider of lamps, luminaires and lighting solutions with a leading position in a wide range of market segments. Our product portfolio spans the entire lighting value chain, from light sources down to custom light management systems, both in general and in speciality lighting.
Since July 1, 2015 , our business model has been implemented at an operational level using five business units: Specialty Lighting (SP) and Opto Semiconductors (OS), both of which remained unchanged, Digital Systems (DS), Lighting Solutions (LS), and Lamps (LP). The Luminaires and Solutions business units and the Services unit had already been combined under common management from October 1 , 2014 , as the Luminaires & Solutions Business Unit. This was renamed Lighting Solutions as of July 1, 2015.
As part of the carve-out of the lamps business, the classic lamps and LED lamps business activities became the key components of the new Lamps Business Unit as of July 1, 2015 . These had previously been assigned to the Classic Lamps & Ballasts and LED Lamps & Systems business units, respectively. The remaining business activities of the former Classic Lamps & Ballasts and LED Lamps & Systems business unit ballasts and light engines & controls, were bundled in the DS Business Unit.
