Strategies Unlimited forecasts LED luminaires to comprise 60% of global luminaire shipments by 2022

Dec. 10, 2014

Mountain View, CA — Strategies Unlimited has released its annual market research report, Global Luminaires: Lighting Analysis and Forecast 2014. This report foresees revenue growth of 11% for the LED luminaire market from 2014 to 2022. The overall luminaire market will experience growth of 1% for the forecast period. This seemingly stagnant growth is due to all other technologies except for LED luminaires declining in demand and shipment. The slow growth in luminaires is also due to the anticipated price decline of LED luminaires due to price wars. Also, as penetration of LED luminaires increase, the replacement failure rates will decrease due to the longevity of the product. This will reduce shipments due to product failure. The figure below illustrates the anticipated healthy growth of LED luminaire units from 2014 through 2022.

Strategies Unlimited Luminaire Analyst Shonika Vijay commented on this expected growth of LED luminaires. “Lighting companies who do not consider LED luminaires as being the dominant product in the coming years within their company product offerings will be left behind regardless of the region they play in.” The Global Luminaires: Lighting Analysis and Forecast 2014 offers insight into the total lighting market through 2022 by covering all technologies, including incandescent, halogen CFL, fluorescent, and LED. This enables a holistic overview of the entire lighting landscape and how LED luminaires are expected to increase in adoption and penetration with respect to specific applications and regions in the coming years.
