Traditional Incandescent Bulbs: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 24, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Energy efficiency in lighting is garnering increased attention worldwide against the backdrop of accelerating energy costs. The pressing concern for reducing CO2 emissions and curbing climate change is leading to the formulation of stricter energy wastage legislations, especially in lighting. As a result, lower-efficiency incandescent bulbs have been phased out in many countries across the globe. Other inefficient technologies that are currently in various stages of phase out by majority of the countries include halophosphate TL lamps, high pressure mercury lamps and EM ballasts for fluorescent lighting. Phasing out of incandescent lamps alone is expected to result in an energy saving of up to 70%, as these bulbs utilize 5.0% of the electricity consumed for producing light and convert the remaining 95% into waste heat.
The years 2013 and 2014 were the last for incandescent bulbs as governments in the United States, Europe and many countries across the world passed measures to completely phase out these bulbs in favour of energy-efficient alternatives. Cuba became the first country to completely phase out production of incandescent bulbs and propagate usage of energy saving bulbs. Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) initially and Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) recently have attracted significant attention as ideal substitutes for incandescent bulbs. Energy efficient LEDs are cannibalizing market opportunities for CFLs, which continues to face challenges such as low light quality and flickering. LEDs score high in terms of not just electricity consumption but operating costs and lifespan. Compared to the average lamp life of incandescent lamps that hover between 1,000-2,000 hours, the lamp life of LEDs extends to 100,000 hours. LED lamp prices are expected to drop steadily in the coming years, offering a critical advantage over CFLs.
