The field of lighting has witnessed remarkable technology improvements in the past few years, especially in the area of compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) and solid state lighting. Conventional incandescent bulbs are expected to reach obsolescence with the onset of CFL and LEDs (light emitting diodes).
LED lighting is enjoying robust growth because of its exceptional features that include high energy-efficiency, long operational life and robust weather resistant design. Lighting accounts for about 18% to 20% of total energy consumption globally; and about 27% to 30% of total energy consumed is for domestic purposes. LED lighting applications are likely to see double-digit growth with the highest market share in overall lighting market post 2020. On the contrary, growth of office and industrial applications of LED lighting will be slower due to the existing high penetration of cost-competitive CFLs and fluorescent lamps.
Compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) are about 70% more energy efficient than incandescent light bulbs. The advantages of CFL include improved light quality and longer operational life in comparison to incandescent lamps. Additionally, CFLs give healthier concentrated light than linear fluorescent and their sizes are just about one-fourth of the size of conventional fluorescent lamps. CFLs help fight global warming as their electricity consumption is appreciably lower than that of incandescent bulbs. Each CFL is expected to slash carbon dioxide emissions by about 1,300 lbs over its lifetime. CFLs cost a little more up front, but still offer more savings than incandescent bulbs by using less electricity. Full spectrum fluorescent lighting may also benefit the immune system, and thus improve general health and well-being.
Our report covers the key energy-efficient lighting technologies that include Light Emitting Diode (LED), Fluorescent and Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL).
The report has covered in-depth energy-efficiency lighting market on the basis of correlated color temperature (CCT). The report also covers all the major products, applications, ingredients, and submarkets under each of these technologies. We have conducted an exhaustively geographic analysis for the major regional markets, viz. the U.S, Europe, Asia, and Rest of the World (ROW). We have not included conventional power consuming technologies like incandescent and halogen lighting technologies.
