Human Centric Lighting (HCL) provides advantages such as greater alertness, improved mood, and improved memory by simulating natural light patterns and utilizing cutting-edge technologies. With the awareness that lighting affects human health, the HCL market is expanding and innovating significantly.
HCL systems simulate natural lighting conditions. It includes changes in color, temperature, and intensity throughout the day. This regulation of the circadian rhythm has been shown to enhance sleep quality, promote wakefulness during the day, and reduce the risk of health issues associated with disrupted sleep patterns. Properly designed lighting environments significantly impact people's productivity and alertness. HIC improves performance in various environments, such as offices, educational institutions, and healthcare facilities by enhancing attention, boosting energy, and reducing eye strain. HCL has a significant impact on the emotions and moods of people. Systems designed with the needs of people in mind can adjust to lighting conditions that improve psychological health, provide relaxing environments, and reduce the symptoms of illnesses such as seasonal affective disorder (SAD) or depression.
Human-centric lighting systems integrated with smart controls enable users to adjust lighting settings, color temperatures, and intensities according to their preferences and needs. By connecting human-centric lighting systems with IoT platforms, lighting is synchronized with other smart devices and data sources, allowing for more personalized and automated lighting experiences. Sensors in lighting systems enable real-time monitoring of environmental factors such as natural light levels, occupancy, and user preferences. This data can be used to adjust lighting conditions for optimal comfort and well-being dynamically.
The COVID-19 pandemic harmed various industries, including the human-centric lighting market. The direct impact of the pandemic on the HCL market was a reduction in demand due to the economic slowdown. Many businesses, including those in the hospitality, retail, and commercial sectors, reduced their operating hours or shut down altogether, decreasing the need for lighting solutions.
North America is one of the significant players in the HCL market. The region's strong market position is attributed to factors such as high awareness of the health benefits of human-centric lighting. The North American market is driven by the growing emphasis on employee well-being, green building initiatives, and a focus on creating healthy environments. Europe is another prominent region in the human-centric lighting market. Several European countries have implemented stringent regulations and guidelines for energy efficiency and sustainable lighting practices. It increased the adoption of human-centric lighting solutions, particularly in commercial and healthcare settings.
Major players in the human-centric lighting market are investing heavily in development and research to introduce new and innovative HCL products to the market which are more efficient. They also adopt various strategies such as new product launches, collaborations, mergers, and acquisitions to increase their market presence. For instance, in December 2020, Signify Holdings and Honeywell International Inc. combined to manufacture and deploy consumer lighting solutions and expand their business territory.
