Key Highlights

  • The rising trend of smart lighting systems, which smartphones and other smart devices can control, has also contributed to the rising demand for LED lights. This is because LED lighting systems are much easier to integrate with smart controls to create intelligent and responsive living environments in homes, offices, and cities, delivering light when and where needed, compared with fluorescent lighting technologies.
  • Manufacturers have started to lower the cost without compromising quality. This makes residences a suitable option for LED lighting applications. Residential owners can also get the advantage of monetary savings when using LED lamps as it last a long time and use a fraction of the energy. Many homeowners are constantly looking for ways to be more eco-friendly. LEDs provide that as they contain no mercury and are recyclable.
  • Apart from houses, office spaces are also becoming one of the common LED lighting applications. In current business world, managers and owners are placing more focus on the overall well-being of their employees. By switching to LED lighting, offices can facilitate bright light for their employees. This aids them see better and experience less eye fatigue and the color of the light can help brighten moods and comfort.
  • One of the main challenge with the market is the requirement of high initial investment. The reasons why the initial investment for LED light manufacturing is high is the cost of raw materials. LED lights require high-quality semiconductor materials, such as gallium arsenide, gallium nitride, and indium phosphide, which are expensive. In addition, LED lights require other materials, such as electronic components and phosphors, which are also relatively expensive.
  • Furthermore, the Trade war has had significant economic and political consequences. For instance, in April 2018, the U.S. government proposed a list of 1300 Chinese exports and announced 25 percent tariffs on these products following the Section 301 investigation. Later in July of the same year, the U.S. administration released the plan of additional tariffs enforcement on USD 200 billion worth of Chinese goods that included LED products. Notably, the LED products included in the first list were primarily intermediate goods such as wafers and backlight products. The tariff influenced U.S.-based companies with factories in the U.S. and used to buy intermediate products from China for manufacturing.

LED Lighting Market Trends

Residential Sector is expected to share major market share

  • One important way many property owners are making significant efforts towards sustainability is by implementing LED lighting throughout their residential communities. These properties contain large lighting networks that operate most hours of the day and are required to remain operational. Upgrading to LED lighting results in significant energy savings. Thus, many renters and homeowners are also taking the initiative to upgrade their interior lighting with a wide array of LED options.
  • The primary benefits of LED lighting are energy efficiency and durability. LED lighting also provides a design flexibility that cannot be achieved with other lamp types. Owing to their small size, LEDs can be used in lamp shapes that are not possible with halogen and fluorescent bulbs. LEDs can also be designed to produce any light color needed for an interior design, and some products have an adjustable color output.
  • Such benefits offered by LEDs have accelerated their uptake in the residential segment. As per the latest Residential Energy Consumption Survey (RECS) completed in 2020-2021 by IEA and published in 2022, 47 percent of US homes now use LED products for most or all of their lighting needs. Residential LED lighting also has a larger market share than halogen, incandescent and fluorescent lighting.
  • Ambient lighting provides the general illumination of a room. LED-based ambient light can come in different forms, such as ceiling-mounted LED downlights, LED strip lights, LED bulbs, or even chandeliers that use LED luminaries to produce light. Ambient lighting with LEDs serves the first and foremost purpose of illuminating the room. However, due to the high-quality light emitted, LEDs also deliver attractive lighting. One of the most popular ways to create ambient lighting nowadays is with indirect installation, where the LED fixtures are hidden but still spread a gentle, even light over the room.
  • In June 2022, Syska Group launched Syska Glowring LED Recessed Downlight and Surface Downlight. Thermo plastic body forms the majority of the lamp’s main component, adding to its light weight, high safety factor, and effective heat dissipation. The lights come with two wattage and size options that are 6W having the size 87.5 x 42 mm which can be both recessed and surface mounted and an additional option of 12W which has the size as 114.5 x 44.5 mm. The lights also feature dual colors and three way switching that helps match with every aesthetic.

Asia-Pacific Expected to Hold Significant Market Share
