Moreover, in the U.S. all LED lighting products must meet regulations including Energy Star Program, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and National Electric Code (NEC).

Governments offer incentives and rebates on replacement of traditional lamps with LED products, and this enables to improve adoption of LED products worldwide. Smart illuminations are also anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities for application in industrial and commercial areas. They have the capability to adjust light using control zones. Smart city schemes have become predominant in the U.S. and several European nations with a rising focus on strategies to lessen peak power demand and overall energy consumption.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit the LED lighting market severely by disrupting the supply chain, delaying the manufacturing, and affecting the lighting industry. The construction industry has also witnessed a decline, which has led to a slump in demand for lighting products. While countries such as Australia did not halt the construction, the projects were closed for a considerable period across the U.S., India, and many European countries. Also, the slowdown in retail, manufacturing, and other industries has led to a decline in the demand owing to the reduced budget for a new warehouse or commercial space. The adoption of LED lighting products would further be affected as the vendors are planning to increase the product prices.

Product Insights

The LED luminaires emerged as the largest segment and accounted for 56% share of the global revenue in 2019. Luminaires are widely used in commercial and industrial lighting segments. They are costlier than typical LED lamps; thus, luminaires account for a more significant market share than LED lamps. New installations predominantly drive growth. It includes lights used in streetlights, high bays, downlights, track lights, troffers, and suspended pendants for various applications. The luminaires deliver more light per output power and they are easier to control and permit optic designers to use them more proficiently and use less light to illuminate the same area. According to the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), LED lights constituted approximately 23% of the overall lighting market in 2017. The U.S Environment Protection Agency (EPA) predicts that LED will be the dominating light bulb technology in the upcoming years provided the awareness and promotion of LED bulbs remain strong by manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. However, given the current pandemic situation, the international lighting events for promoting the products are either canceled or postponed due to COVID-19, online conferences can still serve the purpose of the current pandemic.

The LED lamps segment is anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR of 14.5 % over the forecast period, owing to increasing adoption in developing countries. These lamps have various advantages over incandescent ones, including robustness, energy efficiency, and right temporal stability. Moreover, they are available in multiple designs and applications, such as T-Lamps, reflectors, A-Lamps, and MR-16 lamps. In European countries, the expected to decline in prices is anticipated to create growth opportunities for the segment over the Compact Florescent Lamps (CFLs). This factor is anticipated to speed up the shift from CFLs to light-emitting diodes. In addition, accentuated regulation roadmaps to phase out incompetent lightbulbs shall contribute to demand in residential and commercial applications.

End-use Insights

The commercial segment led the market and accounted for more than 52% share of the global revenue in 2019. The demand for LED troffers, downlights are driving the growth of the commercial segment. The high-end commercial lighting market mainly includes galleries, museums, and other exhibition lighting applications that primarily use reflectors, projectors, and downlights. High brightness LED lights are anticipated to witness high demand in the industrial lighting segment. These lights must comply with industrial lighting standards and regulations defined by various governments. For instance, in the U.S., the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has announced a standard for illumination in offices and commercial spaces.

The residential application consists of portable plug-in fixtures such as table lamps, pendants, and floor lamps as well as permanently installed fixtures such as under recessed sconces and cabinet lights. The residential lighting segment has witnessed high growth in the last few years as the adoption of LED A-type lamps has grown exponentially owing to lowered product prices and subsidy programs by various governments and agencies. Price is a decisive factor driving the demand from residential the segment. Given the pandemic conditions and with prominent brands increasing the product prices, the demand is expected to slump in near future.

Application Insights

The indoor segment dominated the market and accounted for over a 69% share of global revenue in 2019. Usage of LED lights in offices, retail stores and malls, hospitals, education buildings, and others has witnessed significant growth over the past few years.
