This market research study analyzes the leading vendors in the global lighting market for the hospitality sector such as Cree, General Electric, OSRAM, and Philips Lighting holding.

Outlook of the lighting market in the hospitality sector

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global lighting market in the hospitality sector will show tremendous growth and will post an impressive CAGR of over 7% over the forecast period. With the introduction of several energy-efficient certification programs to promote and encourage the widespread adoption of energy-efficient lighting products, the lighting market in the hospitality sector will have a positive outlook in the coming years. To save energy and reduce carbon footprint, governments of many countries have introduced energy certification programs, such as the ENERGY STAR certification, DLC, and Lighting Design Lab certification. These certifications define guidelines for products including a minimum level of requirement for color quality, lifespan, energy efficiency, and optical output that must be met before lighting products can be used. For instance, in the US, the ENERGY STAR label is also shown on the EnergyGuide appliance label for qualifying products. ENERGY STAR-certified LED products consume 75% less energy than incandescent light bulbs, leading to increased adoption among consumers.

In terms of geography, the APAC region led the global lighting market in the hospitality sector and accounted for more than 55% of the total market shares. The growth of this market is attributed to the rapid urbanization and development of the hospitality sector in the region. Investments in the hospitality sector in APAC is driven by an upsurge in domestic and international tourism; for instance, during 2015, the local tourism in China grew by more than 10% with the expansions of numerous international hotel brands and the upgradation of tourist spots. Most hotels, restaurants, and bars are designed to be visually appealing to the customers, and lighting of the place plays a significant part in it. Moreover, the Summer Olympic games of 2020 is scheduled to be held in Tokyo, Japan, and Winter Olympic games of 2018 is expected to be held in Pyeongchang, South Korea. These events are expected to attract a lot of tourists in APAC, which will, in turn, drive the demand for energy-efficient lighting technologies in the hospitality sector over the next four years.
