With billions of semiconductor-based LED light sources installed annually, smart lighting is one of the largest and fastest growing Internet of Things (IoT) markets. Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) network technologies such as Sigfox, LoRa® , NB-IoT, RPMA and Weightless promise to connect billions of IoT devices through public and private networks that connect thousands of devices over multiple miles.

In this report, the market opportunity and competitive landscape for LPWA solutions for smart lighting including municipal streetlights, roadway lighting, campuses, area lighting, parking lots/garages as well as buildings and residences is analyzed.

RF mesh systems have the most widespread support from the utility/energy and lighting industries and are the primary focus for two-thirds of the dozens of smart lighting vendors that we evaluated. However, the large market share by Telensa-- the current outdoor smart lighting leader-- as well as growing support from major network operators has resulted in LPWA technologies making up nearly half of the installed units by the end of 2017.

For cities and businesses that do not yet have a smart lighting system, LPWA networking is an opportunity by reducing the network complexity and, potentially, the operational costs of smart lighting. Compared with RF mesh systems, tradeoffs are immature standards, higher latency and lower bandwidth that may affect the ability to support multiple IoT applications from a single control node, a growing smart lighting trend.

Within the next decade, there will be 1 billion wireless cloud-connected light fixtures making up less than 5% of the total installed base of light fixtures worldwide at this time up from 1% in 2017.

This report covers the growing LPWA market opportunities for intelligent lighting controls for streetlights/roadways, campuses/area lighting, buildings and residences. It includes market size forecasts (2016-2022) for installed lighting controllers, annual unit shipments and breakdowns by market, technology, geography and equipment/services; key findings from several surveys; an in-depth technology evaluation; and analysis of 50+ companies involved with smart lighting.

With billions of semiconductor-based LED light sources installed annually, smart lighting is one of the largest and fastest growing Internet of Things (IoT) markets.  Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networking technologies such as Sigfox, LoRa ®1, NB-IoT, RPMA and Weightless promise to connect billions of IoT devices through public and private networks that connect thousands of devices over multiple miles. 

In this report, we analyze the market opportunity and competitive landscape for wireless smart lighting including municipal streetlights/roadway lighting, campuses, area lighting, parking lots/garages as well as buildings and residences.

RF mesh systems have the most widespread support from the utility/energy and lighting industries and are the primary focus for two-thirds of the smart lighting vendors that we evaluated. However, the large market share of Telensa-- the current outdoor smart lighting leader-- as well as growing support from major network operators has resulted in LPWA technologies making up nearly half of the installed units by the end of 2017.

For cities and businesses that do not yet have a smart lighting system, LPWA networking is an opportunity by reducing the network complexity and, potentially, operational costs of smart lighting. Compared with RF mesh systems, tradeoffs are immature standards, higher latency and lower bandwidth that may reduce the capabilities of supporting multiple IoT applications from a single node, a growing smart lighting trend.

Within the next decade, there will be 1 billion wireless cloud-connected light fixtures making up less than 5% of the total installed base of light fixtures worldwide at this time up from <1% in 2017.

LPWA technologies vary significantly in terms of their suitability for smart lighting. Some technologies lack bi-directional communications and the ability to be deployed in a private network. Many are lacking in widespread public network coverage.  LoRaWAN TM and NB-IoT are the top two most widely adopted LPWA standards for smart lighting today.

Support by many of the world’s largest network operators and IT giants such as Cisco and IBM, has provided the LoRa Alliance with a fertile ecosystem of 500+ members today.  The LoRaWAN TM2 1.1 specification provides support for passive and active roaming, class B devices as well as security enhancements that address many of the potential concerns about adopting LPWA for smart lighting. 

NB-IoT networks are rolling out worldwide by some of the largest mobile operators such as AT&T, Verizon, Vodafone with growing support by regulators such as the Chinese government. Weightless and ETSI’s Low Throughput Networks (LTN) standards initiatives also have much promise for smart lighting but are still nascent.

Our analysis of 50+ companies involved with smart lighting found that half of the installed outdoor smart lighting units are managed by smart lighting platforms from the IT/Telecom industry, followed by advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) vendors and then lighting manufacturers.

This report covers the growing LPWA market opportunities for intelligent lighting controls for streetlights/roadways, campuses/area lighting, buildings and residences. It includes market size forecasts (2016-2022) for installed lighting controllers and annual unit shipments with breakdowns by market, technology, geography and equipment/services; key findings from several surveys; an in-depth technology evaluation; and analysis of 50+ companies involved with smart lighting.
