Asia-pacific industrial lighting market to reach US$ 2.5 bn by 2023



Industrial lighting market size is estimated to witness significant gains by 2023. The growth in the industry can be attributed to rising population, increasing income and swiftly urbanization. In addition, proliferating concerns for insufficiency of resources along with climate changes might positively impact the industry growth over the few upcoming years.
Asia pacific industrial lighting market is estimated to be the largest as well as fastest growing region from 2016 to 2023. It was valued more than US$ 1.5 billion in 2012 and it is anticipated to reach US$ 2.5 billion by 2023. The growth can be subjected to rising number of industries across the region.

The industry involves high use of various lights such as incandescent, halogen, linear, fluorescent lamps (LFL), high-intensity discharge lamps (HID), compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), organic light emitting diode (OLED) and light emitting diode (LED) technology. It can be further segregated into certain sub-technologies namely metal halide, high-pressure sodium and cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL).

In addition, it aids in cost savings and also helps various industry participants in reaching their energy conservation goals. The global industrial lighting market offers various lamps with varied features such as intensity, dimensions & design and function.

Circular fluorescent and linear lamps are greatly used in manufacturing infrastructures to enlighten indoor shipping and receiving bays, production areas, warehousing and distribution operations.

Various industries have diverse lighting specification that varies from specialized task lighting to varied lighting levels. In addition, lighting specification can also be done based on cost and the colour rendered by light. Certain criteria for choosing lighting system for industrial use include retrofit, upgrade or relight. Retrofitting involves reuse of old fixtures and it is limited only to ballast and lamp improvements. Upgrading the existing fixtures proves to be a better solution at times.

Effective use of these systems assists in cost optimization. Industrial LED lighting market facilitates energy consumption, high cost compared to other lighting solutions might pose as challenge to the industry growth; however, the expected LED price erosion should see a surge in units sold. Flourishing R&D is anticipated to pose potential growth opportunities to the industry players over the forecast period.

North America was valued around US$ 1.5 billion in 2012 and it is likely to witness moderate growth over the forecast period. Europe industrial lighting market was valued around US$ 1.4 billion in 2012. It is likely to witness moderate growth owing to the debt crises in the region. It is estimated to reach US$ 1.7 billion by 2023. Latin America was valued around US$ 120 million in 2012. It is anticipated to exceed US$ 150 million by 2023.
