Report Overview

The global LED lighting market size was valued at USD 55.5 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.5% from 2022 to 2030. Increasing construction activities in developed and developing countries, along with stringent government regulations to lower the adoption of inefficient lighting technologies, are the major factors expected to drive the market. LED lights offer high lumen power by consuming less power, better service life, and no flickering. Also, LED manufacturers are focused on integrating solutions such as Wi-Fi, occupancy sensor, and daylighting which is attracting consumers in turn responsible to increase product sales. These factors are contributing to the market growth. 

 North America LED lighting market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

LED lights tend to be a better solution compared to other lights such as halogen, CFL, and incandescent lights. LEDs operate at low energy input providing high illumines which is a major reason they are widely deployed in outdoor and indoor settings. LEDs provide manufacturers the design flexibility, along with the ability to withstand frequent switching. Rising awareness among consumers related to the benefits of LED lights, along with consumers' shift towards green lighting is expected to spur the demand for LED products.

International Electrotechnical Commission, American National Standards Institute, and China Compulsory Certification are some major regulatory bodies that regulate product certification. Manufactures after obtaining relevant certifications to sell, import, export, and use the product in business and services. The governments of developed and developing countries are focused on lowering the high energy consumption, they are imposing various regulations related to quality which helps them ensure consumer safety, energy consumption, and monitor environmental issues. LED lights are energy-saving solutions that consume less energy and deliver 50,000 hours of illumination. Thus, strict government regulations related to the use of high energy-consuming lighting are anticipated to favor the market growth.

Initially, halogen lights were used in overhead surgical lighting creating distress for doctors during surgery or examination. Also, the examination room and minor surgical lights consisted of 50 to 100 W halogen bulbs which resulted in high energy consumption and high heat emission. Thus, rapid technological advancements in the medical devices industry to replace the outdated or inefficient devices/equipment and manufacturer approach towards integrating LEDs in surgical lighting, exam lights, phototherapy, and endoscopy to enhance the patient treatment experience are factors expected to boost the target market growth

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the global market. Strict lockdowns and temporary suspensions of construction sites resulted in a decline in demand for LED lighting. However, in the second quarter of 2021, construction activities witnessed growth with the introduction of new as well as redesigning projects, thus leading to the gradual recovery of the LED lighting market.

Product Insights

The LED luminaires segment accounted for the highest market share of 55.7% in 2021 and continued its dominance in the global market. LED luminaires comprise the lights used on high bays, track lights, streetlights, troffers, etc. Rising smart cities projects, coupled with increasing commercial construction activities are resulting in the new installation of streetlights and track lights which is a primary reason to support the segment growth.

The LED lamp segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the increasing adoption of LED lamps in the residential sector. LED lamps are available in various designs and provide benefits such as better energy efficiency and high stability compared to other solutions such as incandescent lamps and CFL. Likewise, the government's approach toward rising LED awareness among consumers to lower/manage energy usage are factors expected to support the target market growth.    

Application Insights

The indoor segment accounted for over 68.0% revenue share in the global market in 2021. This can be attributed to increasing demand from supermarkets, malls, and retail stores for efficient lighting solutions compared to fluorescent and High-Intensity Discharge (HID). LED lighting solution save more light, emits less heat, and is cost-effective compared to other lights solution. Likewise, high demand from hospitals and educational institutes is expected to support the segment growth.

The outdoor segment is expected to witness moderate growth over the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing infrastructure development projects related to airports, highways, and public places. In addition, increasing government initiatives to attain net-zero emission by lowering energy consumption is expected to increase demand for LEDs lights for outdoor applications.

End-use Insights

The commercial segment dominated the LED lighting market in 2021 and accounted for more than 52.2% of the global revenue share. The commercial construction sector across the globe is witnessing rapid growth and demand for advanced lighting solutions among museum, exhibition, and gallery owners for better lighting applications are responsible factors expected to support the market growth. In addition, the workplace lights need to meet/comply according to the standards and regulations set by the government which is major reason demand for high brightness LED lights is increasing, thus supporting the segment growth. For instance, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) mandates the covering of light fixtures with a protective plate, the installation of fixtures above 7 feet in the workplace is mandatory, and compulsory covering of wires and exposed parts of lights parts.

 Global LED lighting market share, by end use, 2021 (%)

The residential sector is witnessing faster growth globally, which is augmenting the adoption of lamps, floor lamps, cabinet lights, etc. Typically, the efficiency of LEDs used in the residential sector is expected to be over 100 lumens per watt (lm/W). Also, many developed countries are using LED with an efficiency of 110 lm/W to 130 lm/W. Thus, rapid advancement in LED efficiency is expected to support the target segment growth.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific accounted for a revenue share of over 42.8% in 2021 and is anticipated to witness high growth in the coming years. This can be attributed to rapid infrastructure development activities in developing countries, coupled with increasing initiatives by the government related to energy saving is expected to increase demand for LED lighting. China, Japan, and India are major contributors to the market growth due to the booming construction industry, along with the presence of a large number of players operating in these countries with a focus to introduce new products are factors expected to support the regional market growth.

North America & Europe region accounted for a significant revenue share in the global market. This can be attributed to stringent government regulations and initiatives pertaining to energy efficiency. From September 2021, under EU regulations the minimum efficiency requirement for general service lighting was set at 91 lm/W. Likewise, in 2017, European Union started using an A (efficient) to G (inefficient) scale which is expected to help the customers make better-informed purchasing choices related to purchasing energy-efficient electronic goods.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights

Favorable business policies by the government of developing countries and backed by new venture capital firm is resulting in the emergence of new entrants in the market with an innovative solution. Likewise, major players are inclining towards acquiring major market share through strategic business acquisitions. For instance, in October 2021, Luminii, a U.S.-based global LED lighting solution provider announced the acquisition of Precision Lighting and Remote Controlled Lighting, two British lighting manufacturers. This acquisition is expected to help the company enhance its business presence and increase its customer base. Some prominent players in the global LED lighting market include:
