Report Overview

The global smart LED lighting market size was estimated at USD 7.32 billion in 2018. Rising awareness regarding the technologies such as wireless optical networking data transmission, light fidelity, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is expected to positively impact the market. Over the past few years, growing demand for energy efficient lighting systems has been promoting the adoption of advanced products including smart LED bulbs.

U.S. smart LED lighting Market

Smart lights are available in the range of 0.1 to 100 watts capacity. These products provide features including automatic on/off control, Bluetooth connectivity, embedded WiFi technology, and voice control options. The rising adoption of these products as a hassle-free solution to control home or organization lighting is projected to drive the market. Furthermore, rising consumer awareness regarding the importance of energy conservation is encouraging the adoption of smart LED lights.

Governments are adopting smart city lighting projects to save energy and money. As per a report by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, around 39% of total energy cost is incurred through lighting. It has been observed that smart LED lighting has the ability to reduce energy costs in office buildings and industrial installations by 90%. A large number of cities have started investing in this energy-saving solution as it is considered safe, environment friendly, and helpful for daily data monitoring.

In August 2018, the Chicago Department of Transportation announced the implementation of the Streetlight Modernizing Program with the aim to replace 270,000 conventional street lights with LED bulbs in the next four years. Since 2013, the governing body of Barcelona installed various smart LED lampposts across the city. These lights contain motion sensors that detect vehicles on the road and automatically go off when the roads are empty.

Wired smart LED lighting generated a revenue of USD 6.02 billion in 2018. These products are predominantly used in corporates, industries, and government organizations as a result of their low installation as well as the low maintenance costs as compared to their wireless counterparts. Furthermore, the reduced possibility of failure issues associated with these products is projected to bode well for the product demand in the near future.

The wireless product segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 26.6% from 2019 to 2025. People can access the operations of smart lights remotely with the help of handsets. The majority of these products are connected through Bluetooth and WiFi. Growing consumer spending on trendy lifestyles is driving them to use wireless voice recognized smart electronics gadgets.
