IMS Research releases 2011 Lighting Report - world lamp and luminaire market to reach $115 billion in 2015

July 20, 2011
Date Announced: 20 Jul 2011 Austin, TX – The global lighting market is currently going through tremendous changes. Increased efficiency standards, a growing concern with energy efficiency and breakthroughs in the LED sector are all affecting a previously slow moving market that was extremely difficult for new entrants to penetrate. According to the latest analysis from IMS Research, in 2010 the world lighting market was worth $83 billion, with lamps making up 24% of the total. By 2015, the value of the market will stand at $115 billion, with lamps making up 33%. IMS Research Lighting Market Analyst, Philip Smallwood, states that “Growth is stemming from advancements in LEDs which are increasing their efficiency, while decreasing their overall price. Currently, LEDs make up 10% of the total lighting market ($US), but by 2015, this is expected to increase to 46%.” Much of the growth will occur in more developed regions of the world, such as North America and Western Europe, which comprise approximately 50% of the market ($US). As is usually the case, the big exception to the rule is China. In 2010, 14% of the lighting market belonged to China, by 2015 it is estimated that this will increase to 20%. Continued economic growth, a construction boom, concerns with increased electricity consumption and the increased purchasing power of the general public will all have an impact on the market in this region. While the leading light suppliers have been dominant for decades, innovations in LED technologies have opened the door for emerging suppliers to fight for different niches within the lamp and luminaire markets. This is creating a race where early market entrants are expecting to see big gains.
