Lamps: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 22, 2011
Follow us on LinkedIn - Lighting industry is witnessing a sea change, with constant replacement of old technologies with new-fangled lighting technologies so as to reduce energy costs and address issues such as global warming. The emergence of novel technologies and the subsequent developments have captured the industry’s attention in recent years. Cost reduction and energy savings have been the key factors behind the replacement of inefficient and conventional lighting solutions, including HID fixtures and lamps, electronic ballasts and T12, with new and integrated systems and sophisticated solid-state technologies such as T8 and T5 fixtures, and lamps. Solid-state lighting controls products help reduce energy costs by efficiently controlling lighting energy. Due to the high price, these new technologies initially embrace high-end markets as exotic substitute of existing technologies. Novel light sources, such as CFLs and LEDs, are fostering the current trend by providing better power and energy-efficiency.
Globally, several governments have initiated the process of phasing out the traditional incandescent (GLS) lamps from use. Countries that have formally adopted/initiated policies to phase out GLS lamps include countries across the EU, signatories to IEA (with the exception of Norway), virtually all OECD countries and several non-OECD countries across the world. By the end of 2006, as many as 37 countries worldwide have embarked on policies to phase out incandescent lamps from use within their geographies. However, regulations towards this end vary in terms of timelines, scope, and stringency among these countries.
Advanced lighting options currently available for consumers are helping them in easily replacing the traditional incandescent lights. Alternative lighting technologies that have garnered significant demand over the recent years include LED lamps, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and advanced halogen lamps. Of late, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) have witnessed significant improvement in terms of performance and diversity. Superior quality products in this segment have made their way into the market over the recent years. Resultantly, CFLs currently emerge as the most likely replacement technology for to-be-phased-out incandescent lamps, before LEDs make their full fledge entry into the market. Through this transition, halogen lamps are also garnering significant success, owing to factors such as close characteristics of these lamps to incandescent and their lower prices. The lower prices as well as the positives in the characteristics of halogen lamps, as opposed to relatively higher prices and deterring features of products such as CFLs, such as longer time to gain full brightness, are currently making halogen lamps more favorable across some markets worldwide.
As stated by the new market research report on Lamps, Europe continues to remain the largest regional market. Growth in the global lamps market would be driven by developing countries worldwide. Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing regional market displaying a CAGR of about 10.3% over the analysis period. Growth in the market would be spearheaded by Halogen Lamps, and Fluorescent Lamps. Of the various options, compact florescent lamps and LED lamps have attracted significant attention over the recent years.
LEDs continue to be a technology serving a niche application, although there is no doubt about its potential to spread its wings to several other applications. The technology is touted to play a major role in minimizing energy consumption in lighting across various settings. LED technology has witnessed significant success in applications such as flashlights or torches. These advanced lighting sources are known to provide superior performance in this segment when compared to other technologies, hence their significant success in this application. On the other hand, LEDs are finding significant adoption in architectural lighting, use in retail sector such as in jewelry and fashion stores, and in supermarkets. Given the time being taken by CFLs to outshine demand for GLS lamps, LED is expected to witness much of its growth from professional lighting segment and decorative luminary segment of the residential market in the next few years. LEDs are expected to take several years to oust other energy-efficient technologies in the residential lighting market.
