Lamp: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus) September 9, 2010
The global lamps market is presently characterized by constant increase in demand for energy-saving and eco-friendly light sources such as CFLs (Compact Flourescent Lamps), and LED Lamps (Light emitting diode lamps). Backed by governments’ economic stimulus programs the world over, and huge investments in public work projects, demand for these high performance lamps looks promising over the ensuing years. Nevertheless, the emerging trend towards energy saving eclipses market prospects for incandescent lamps, with several governments, including California, Australia, Taiwan, European Union, Ireland, and Canada announcing gradual discontinuation of the energy-guzzling incandescent lamps. The future may witness complete replacement of incandescent lamps by LEDs across all regional markets. Another prominent trend in the lamps market include rapid advancements in next-generation light sources such as Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). OLEDs are expected to become core component of lighting applications, including architectural lighting, general-purpose lighting, industrial lighting, and backlighting.
Europe represents the largest region for lamps worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on Lamps. The United States trails Europe in terms of sales of lamps. Driven by increased demand from non-residential buildings, consumer electronics and motor vehicle industries, demand for LED lamps in the US is expected to exhibit rapid growth over the next few years, providing strong competition to conventional lamps. In terms of growth, Asia-Pacific is projected to be the fastest growing regional market for lamps, with a CAGR of about 2.6% over the analysis period. Rapid increase in demand for energy-efficient light sources in major countries such as China, India, Australia, and Taiwan are key factors driving growth in the Asia-Pacific market.
In terms of product segments, though incandescent lamps presently constitute the largest segment globally, the market for incandescent lamps is expected to decline by 2012, largely impacted by the incandescent-extinction policies in several countries including EU, Australia, Taiwan, China, and California. Demand for incandescent lamps is expected to decline further by 2015, when majority of the global markets would replace incandescent bulbs with energy efficient alternatives. Meanwhile, the lamps market is witnessing rapid growth of LEDs and CFLs. The LED lamps market has been witnessing high growth, primarily due to the introduction of advanced new products. Prominent application areas of LEDs include backlighting color displays in cellular phones, and dashboard lighting. Besides LEDs, the global use of Compact Flourescent Lamps (CFLs) has almost doubled during the first half of the decade. Compared to conventional incandescent lights, CFLs produce less heat, and use 75% less energy for producing the same degree of light. CFL lamps are smaller in size, starts up faster, in addition to being much cheaper.
