10-Year Market Forecast

This is the 2018-2028 global market forecast of the use of light emitting diode (LED) lighting by professional photographers.

Regions

The market data are segmented into the following geographic regions, plus a Global summary:

  • America
  • EMEA (Europe, Middle East, plus Africa)
  • APAC (Asia Pacific)

Applications

There are several types or categories of professional photographers, and photographers often work in more than one-type; however, we aimed to classify work applications, at their initial major professional purposes, for the market data that is presented.

The market data are segmented into the following professional end-user groups (applications):

  • Journalism/Sports/Entertainment
  • Street/Paparazzi
  • Advertising/Sales
  • Science
  • Portrait/Event

The market forecast data are presented for the LED light fixture, segmented by the following functions:

  • Consumption Value (US$, million)
  • Quantity (number/units)
  • Average Selling Prices (ASP $, each)

Market Forecast, By Light Shape and Size

This report provides an independent assessment of the changing market dynamics for the major types of LED-based lighting, segmented by shape/size:

  • Small LED Light
  • Square or Rectangle (less than 12 x 12-inch)
  • Circular/Ring/Fresnel (less than 12-inch Outer Diameter)

  • Level 3 - Lamp/LED array; may include optics, heat sink and/or power supply
  • Level 4 - Light Fixture/Luminaire (complete with initial LEDs)

Competitor Company Profiles

Descriptions of over 50 manufacturers/brands that provide LED lights, which are used by professional photographers, are presented in this report. Also included are our projected market share estimates (2018) of leading competitors.

Overview

This is the 2018-2028 global forecast of the use of LED-based lighting in the professional photography (pro photo) business sector, segmented by photographer-primary application type, fixture size and design-type, and geographic regions.

The light emitting diode (LED) market, despite exciting innovative devices driven by technological advances and ecological/energy-saving concerns, still face challenges in overcoming marketing challenges from well-excepted incumbent lighting solutions before obtaining widespread acceptance and consumption.

The use of LED-based lights in the professional photographer category is currently driven by requirements for continuous lighting, mainly because of its flexibility. Direct, reflected or diffused, they provide the power, precision and color accuracy that photographers need.

Professional photographers are accepting continuous LED light fixtures (luminaires). Continuous lights, which are for video, are also used for photography. Some of these are attachable to (on) the camera. Also, larger-sized units that used for off the camera set-ups.

Continuing cost/performance improvements pushed along by technological advancements are driving the professional photography LED lighting fixture market from a minor solution to a general use solution.

LED photography (photo) lighting in studios and sets consume less electrical power, not only because LEDs use less energy, but also less air conditioning is required since heat generated by an LED bulb is negligible. Also, LEDs last longer than other traditional light sources; therefore, savings in bulb replacement and inventory/storage requirements are important; however, of course, if the LED light provides inadequate photos versus the tradition bulbs, then the LED alternative is useless to professional photographers.

In this market forecast, the consumption value is determined by multiplying the number of units by the average selling price. The average selling prices are based on the price of the LED lighting (initial lamp/light source and main fixture) at the initial factory level. The consumption values are based on the end-user sub-application and the end-user region.

According to this research, the worldwide market volume of LED Lighting used by professional photographers is projected to reach 708.7 thousand units in 2018.

During the forecast period, the volume (quantity/units) of the LED-equipped lighting is forecast to steadily increase every year during the next decade.

According to the market forecast report, the global consumption of LED lighting is projected to reach 708.7 thousand units in 2018; however, even though the number of units (quantity/volume) is forecast to increase each year, the average selling prices are set to decrease rapidly during the forecast period (2018-2028).

“There are several types or categories of professional photographers, and photographers often work in more than one-type; however, we aimed to classify work applications, at their initial major professional purposes, for the market data that is presented,” said Stephen Montgomery, president of the publisher.

The Advertising/Sales application category is forecast to dominate in the usage of LED lights by professional photographers, with over 400 thousand units worldwide in 2018. The Advertising/Sales application includes photo-work used for print and web-based (e-commerce). This application covers such activities as ad-work for food/restaurants ads, as well as merchandise, such as jewelry, vehicles, real estate, travel/hotels, the fashion industry, and many other major photography assignments.

For the purposes of this market study, the term “professional” is an individual that represent themselves as a professional photographer that is actively involved (full-time or part-time) to receive compensation for their work. That said, some professional photographers may (at times) provide their services for free, to promote their work/services.

“Hobbyist/enthusiasts, most certainly, may purchase professional-quality lighting with upgraded features; however, we have not included them in the market data.  However - hobbyist/enthusiasts may increasingly be involved in professional photography activity, such as wedding photography, a few times a year; therefore, this is a “grey area” for their inclusion. However - if they actively advertise or actively push their photography services for continuous compensation (for example with business cards and/or a website), and they consider and represent themselves as professionals (even part-time/semi-professional), then we include their LED lighting purchases in the market data,” Montgomery added.

The market study also breaks-down the LED light usage, by the shape and size of the product. In terms of the number of light units, the smaller lights are projected to hold substantial market share this year; however, the smaller units have a relatively low average selling price (ASP) compared to the larger-sized units.
