The study will include major issues in the lighting market, its current structure, an understanding of stakeholder decision-making and specification for both the centralized panel-based and highly integrated distributed lighting controls systems market. This analysis will further quantify the opportunity and growth for the systems market. The study will also provide also qualitative information on trends and challenges facing industry.
For the purpose of data collection for this study, select combinations of market participants were independently interviewed. Research was conducted primarily through phone interviews with chosen market participants and supplemented with comprehensive secondary research.
In combination with an extensive lighting control industry knowledge and secondary research, this study has been compiled to convey to the most clear and concise representation of the current state of the lighting control systems marketplace and its direction going forward.
Profiles of Interviewees:
- Lighting control systems manufacturers – vice presidents, product managers, sales & marketing executives, channel marketing managers, engineers, etc.
- Large wholesale distributors – vice presidents, channel marketing managers, localized sales executives, sales managers, lighting control specialists, engineers, etc.
- Other appropriate stakeholders – lighting designers, sales representatives, resellers, localized distributors, installers, commissioners, architects, engineers, etc.
Highly Integrated Distributed Lighting Controls Systems – Refers to a decentralized system with integrated controls that are able to communicate with feedback and analytics functionality. Such systems include wired and wireless networked lighting controls. This system is referred to as a lighting control system interchangeably throughout the report.
Centralized Panel-Based Lighting Controls (PBLCs) – Defined as lighting controls with zone specific functionality. In some cases, multiple zones can be integrated into a larger lighting control system. However, these systems are application specific and generally do not have advanced control feedback capabilities.
- Control modules include relay panels, group controllers, scene controllers, DMX controllers, communicating fixtures and ballasts
- User-interfaces include sliders, touch panels, networked systems with software solution, timers and dimmers
- Sensors include occupancy, daylighting and other sensors
Standalone lighting controls are not included in this analysis. Information on this established market is available in other Verify Markets reports.
