LED Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

Based on our research output, there has been a negative impact on the market growth during and post COVID-19 era. The declining manufacturing cost of LEDs is notably driving the LED market growth, although factors such as high average cost per fixture may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the LED industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key LED Market Driver

One of the key factors driving growth in the LED market is the growing adoption of energy-efficient lighting technologies. The increase in demand for lighting has resulted in a rising demand for electricity. As lighting consumes about 20% of the global electricity production, governments of many countries are focusing on promoting energy-efficient lighting technologies. In some countries, governments have banned the use of incandescent bulbs. This, in turn, is expected to result in the high adoption of other energy-efficient lighting technologies, including halogen, CFL, LFL, and LED. Manufacturers of lighting products have started focusing on energy-efficient and environment-friendly lighting solutions because of increasing awareness of green technology and decreasing the price of LEDs. This is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the global LED market during the forecast period.

Key LED Market Trend

The growing number of households and urbanization is a LED market trend that is expected to have a positive impact in the coming years. The increase in urbanization is driving the installation of new lamps and LED luminaires, which, in turn, will lead to an increase in unit shipments and, thereby, revenue from LED products. More than half of the global population lives in urban areas, which is expected to increase further. APAC is the major contributor to the increase in urbanization across the world. Over the next three decades, more than half of the increase in the global urban population will occur in Asia, particularly in China and India. The LED market in China will observe high growth because of the increasing demand for luxury homes and high-end residential areas, which is expected to accelerate the demand for LED lamps and luminaires. Brazil is becoming a popular destination among commercial business entities. This is leading to the rapid urbanization of many areas of Brazil, including Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Rapid urbanization drives the governments of various countries to invest in large-scale urban infrastructure projects. Megacities concentrate on investing in infrastructure development to meet the needs of the growing population. All these factors are expected to lead to the growth of the global LED market during the forecast period.

Key LED Market Challenge

The high average cost per fixture will be a major challenge for the LED market during the forecast period. Despite the declining ASPs of LED lighting products worldwide, adoption is a challenge because of the high average cost per fixture. The initial costs incurred by customers for the installation of LED lighting fixtures are comparatively much higher than that of traditional incandescent or halogen bulbs. This initial cost includes the cost of LED fixtures such as wires as well as labor costs. There are a few challenges related to the use of LEDs. For instance, in newly built homes, wiring is not a concern while installing LED bulbs. However, older homes might require renovation of the electrical system for the safe installation of LED bulbs, which increases the installation cost of LED bulbs. Moreover, if consumers are opting for smart lighting solutions, they incur additional costs on procurement and installation of the required IoT infrastructure.

This LED market analysis report also provides detaiLED information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2021-2025.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic led to the imposition of lockdowns in many countries. The lockdowns led to the temporary closure of the production units of LEDs, which negatively impacted the sales for LEDs in the region in 2020. However, the market is expected to recover during the forecast period as vaccination drives are increasing in the region, resulting in the resumption of industrial activities. Hence, the regional LED market is expected to witness growth during the forecast period.

The LED market share growth by the general lighting segment will be significant during the forecast period. The general lighting segment is witnessing unprecedented demand for LEDs, largely due to the favorable government regulatory framework across the globe for LED lighting. For instance, the Indian government launched a campaign called the Domestic Efficient Lighting Program. Under this program, LED lights were distributed at a subsidized rate throughout the country, and many promotional activities were encouraged to spread general awareness about the use of LED lighting and energy-savings. Similarly, governments across the globe are extensively focusing on the implementation of energy-efficient lighting solutions, which is driving the penetration of LEDs in the general lighting segment.

This report provides an accurate prediction of the contribution of all the segments to the growth of the LED market size and actionable market insights on post COVID-19 impact on each segment.
