Sales of smart lighting control products are expected to soar, according to a new report by Markets and Markets, with the highest growth is likely to take place in commercial and industrial applications.
The smart lighting industry involves the use of lighting control systems that deliver correct amount of light when needed. It deals with the technology where lights can automatically perform various operations at set times or under set conditions. It makes use of intelligent lighting control systems to intelligently control light, based on various parameters such as occupancy, movement, colour temperature, amount of natural/daylight and so on.
The customers of lighting control systems apply a set of such lighting control strategies using specific technologies and methods to control consumption of light energy. Automated lighting control not only provides less expensive and more flexible lighting, but also monitors various tasks carried out by the users. The smart lighting market is growing in a remarkable way and the main factors driving this growth are the rising growth of Light Emitting Diode (LED), lighting in commercial modernisation, rapid growth of street lighting systems, and expansion of this technology in smart cities. At present there are many companies launching new products in the market.
It is observed that LED-based lighting devices integrated with different types of wireless technologies have a good opportunity in the market. The wireless networking technologies are bringing intelligence to a new generation of smart lighting. The main drivers for the market include incompatible wireless communication solutions, lack of awareness, more supply than demand, and difficulty of maintenance.
The growth of the smart lighting market in the coming years is expected to be very important, with the revenue growth estimated to reach £33 billion by 2020, at an estimated annual growth rate of 15.8% from 2014 to 2020. The major players in this market include Acuity Brands (US), Legrand (France), Lutron Electronics (US) and Zumtobel (Austria). Several other acquisitions, mergers, new product launch, agreements and so on, have taken place recently and are discussed in the report.
