Halogen Bulbs: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Halogen is the most widely used lighting technology in the automotive sector. The features of low purchase- and replacement-costs and easy availability made halogen lamps the preferred auto lighting option over the years. Xenon/HID and LED lighting represent the other two chief lighting options. Despite being the widely used lighting type, halogen has been facing decline in demand since the past few years due to the rapidly rising popularity of LED lightings for automotive applications.

While in the automotive sector, metal halides in the medium term and LEDs in the long term are expected to replace halogens, in the residential sector, CFLs in the medium term and LEDs in the long run are expected to become dominant light sources. LEDs are currently being used in front DRLs (Daylight Running Lights), tail lamps and also in vehicle interiors. LEDs are touted to offer improved visibility, longer lifespan and display high resistance to harsh conditions on the road when compared to traditional halogens. LEDs are also expected to penetrate into the two wheelers market. Tail lamps and blinkers of quite a few two wheeler models have already started to integrate LED lighting. However, despite the increasing popularity, LED lamps are still at a cost disadvantage when compared to halogens. Therefore, at least for the next few years, halogens will rule as the most widely used lighting technology for vehicles.

As stated by the new market research report on Halogen Bulbs, Europe represents the largest market worldwide, followed by the United States. Asia-Pacific is expected to replace Europe as the largest market by the end of the analysis period. Rising employment levels, economic prosperity, increase in discretionary income, relatively lower per capita car ownership is boosting demand for new cars, including luxury cars, in the region. This in turn is driving automotive production, which is poised to benefit demand for halogen auto lamps in the near term.

Key players covered in the report include Autolite (India) Limited, Bulbrite Industries, Inc., Crompton Greaves Ltd., Eiko Ltd., Feit Electric Company, General Electric Company, Halco Lighting Technologies, Halogen Lighting Products Corporation, Halonix Limited, Havells India Limited, Havells USA, Hi Score Corporation, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Larson Electronics LLC, Litetronics International Inc., OSRAM GmbH, PIAA Corporation, Surya Roshni Ltd., USHIO America Inc., and Westinghouse Lighting Corp., among others.
