High Intensity Discharge (HID) Bulbs: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 04, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Global sales of HID lamps are declining as a result of the competitive threat of substitution posed by the LED lighting technology. With rising energy costs, consumers around the world are increasingly seeking to reduce energy consumption across all lighting applications. The growth in the HID lamps market is restrained by the technology’s energy efficiency and environmental concerns. Research, over the last couple of decades, has yielded improved lighting technologies that provide superior luminescence, while simultaneously consuming less energy. Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) lighting technology is a semiconductor based lighting solution that offers significant energy efficiency, durability, and performance benefits over the HID technology.
Although HID bulbs offer higher luminous efficiency and energy efficiency than traditional incandescent bulbs, these bulbs tend to degrade more rapidly than other light sources in terms of light output and efficacy. Though originally intended for high-bay/high-ceiling and outdoor applications, use of HID bulbs spread to retail applications with the introduction of Ceramic Metal Halide (CMH) bulbs that offered superior color rendering than its predecessors. HID is a dominant technology used in street lighting applications. However, LED lighting is gradually cannibalizing market opportunities in this space, supported by continued research and technological advancements that promise to make LEDs an ideal alternative to HID bulbs in the future. Additionally, HID bulbs are facing the impending threat from high efficiency plasma lights. Advanced plasma light sources offer numerous benefits over HIDs as well as LEDs. Lower maintenance costs and rugged architecture for long burning life make high efficiency plasma bulbs an ideal replacement for incumbent HID.
As stated by the new market research report on High Intensity Discharge (HID) Bulbs, Asia-Pacific represents the largest market worldwide, supported by the presence of price sensitive countries in East Asia. In these countries, proliferation of LEDs is slow and gradual with HID bulbs still continuing to be used in infrastructure facilities such as stadiums, large public areas, movie theatres, roadways, pathways, parking lots, and warehouses, among others.
