Luminaire Type

The type A lamp segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 31.4% in 2022. The type A lamp is a specific type of LED driver designed to operate and power type A lamps. LED drivers are electronic devices that regulate and control the power supply to LEDs, ensuring proper voltage and current levels for optimal operation. Type A lamps are retrofitting bulbs intended to replace standard incandescent bulbs without requiring changes to the existing fixtures or sockets. These lamps are often designed like classic A-shaped incandescent bulbs and have a medium screw base (E26 or E27). Moreover, these lamps are compatible with standard socket types and can be easily integrated into existing lighting systems. Decorative lamps is another crucial segment in the market. The segment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.4% from 2023 to 2030.

Decorative lamps are intended to improve the aesthetic appeal of indoor and outdoor settings by offering eye-catching lighting options.

In addition, decorative lamps come in various designs, shapes, and sizes to suit various decorative lighting applications. They can include filament-style bulbs that mimic the vintage look of incandescent bulbs, strips or ropes for accent lighting, decorative pendant lights, chandeliers, wall sconces with intricate designs, and more. Furthermore, many decorative lights offer dimming capabilities that allow you to create an atmosphere and modify illumination settings based on your needs. Drivers with dimming capabilities are used to manage the light output and enable seamless dimming of the decorative lighting. This allows users to adjust the brightness or create dynamic lighting effects.

Supply Type Insights

The constant current type segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 65.7% in 2022. It is anticipated to remain prevalent over the forecast period due to its heavy industry utilization. For several applications, it is desirable to utilize constant current drivers as they offer more control and provide the ability to design a clear display and uniform brightness. As such devices use a constant current driver, they are extremely energy efficient. Constant current drivers are popular because they provide a constant forward current independent of variations in the input voltage. With a constant current source, the driver keeps the current constant even when the voltage fluctuates with temperature, eliminating thermal runaway and over-driving the LED. While utilizing light-emitting diodes for lighting applications, such a method allows for higher brightness consistency and a longer lifetime.

The constant voltage driver is utilized when many LED lights must be linked in series. Furthermore, the constant voltage driver evenly flows the voltage, resulting in uniform illumination throughout the lights. LED drivers with a constant voltage provide more versatility than a variable voltage. This is because more LEDs could be connected until the constant-voltage LED driver's maximum current capability is reached, at which point adding further LEDs will decrease the available power to each light-emitting diode, lowering the brightness. However, the constant voltage driver is less efficient than the constant current driver as it cannot stabilize the current influx, thus consuming more energy than the latter one. Therefore, the constant voltage driver is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2023 to 2030.

Application Insights

The growing demand for energy-efficient lighting across all industry verticals has compelled users to adopt LED lights. Solid-state lighting (SSL) has a compelling value proposition and ROI due to its low maintenance costs and ability to offer consistent brightness efficiently.
