  In the past decade, the field of plasma based accelerators and light sources has witnessed remarkable progresses worldwide. In this talk, the current status of light sources based on plasma accelerators will be reviewed. For incoherent synchrotron like sources, the development and preliminary applications of Betatron and inverse-Compton X/Gamma-ray sources will be discussed. For coherent sources, the development of intense THz and Infrared sources based on plasma nonlinear optics, as well as EUV/X-ray sources based on FELs will be discussed, with an emphasis on the challenges and opportunities of compact FELs based on laser and beam driven wakefield accelerators. Particularly, the prospects of generating high quality electron beams with extremely high brightness in plasma accelerators and its implication for future light source development will be discussed in details.
