The objective of this report is to identify and quantify the opportunities for electronics in smart lighting systems over the next eight years. It is designed to become required reading for firms in the semiconductor industry that want to better understand the opportunities in smart lighting electronics. It is also intended to provides guidance to firms in the LED and smart lighting systems sectors who need to better understand where smart-lighting electronics trends will take their businesses.

With this in mind, the focus of the analysis in this report is on the newer kinds of smart lighting – meaning those that are specifically designed for energy efficiency, color tuning or VLC. We do not concern ourselves with the standard lighting management systems that have been around for years. These systems do consume chips, but almost exclusively commoditized electronics that does not represent an opportunity in any meaningful sense.

Instead, most of the focus of this report is on where we think such profits might be made. In the immediate future, this would seem to be in the form of chips that provide better control over the energy efficiency of lighting systems. This READ MORE >
