Recently Russian government has carried out a series of measures to promote LED lights project in Russia. As one member of emerging-markets, Russia played one important role in economic development. To be brought in line with international standards, Russian government has enacted law of energy strategy outline in 2009, stipulating sales ban of over 100watts bulbs in 2011; of more than 75 watts bulbs in 2013, and of over 25watts in 2014, claiming traditional bulbs withdrawal from the market. Moreover, market capacity of fluorescent tubes in Russia is still huge, while waste recycling issue has become one Gordian knot. In the long run, environmental issues will be the bottleneck of fluorescent tube development.
