Bridging the spectrum between lighting manufacturers and growers, LEDsMagazine.com/Horticulture is the premier resource for all things horticultural lighting, including case studies, videos, press releases, and articles from LEDs Magazine and OSRAM Opto Semiconductors detailing roles and applications of LEDs in horticulture.

“The new horticulture lighting microsite is a platform that both manufacturers and growers can utilize to learn more about the exciting industry of horticultural lighting. With our sponsor OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, we were able to seed the site with in-depth information through products, case studies, and videos, all while creating a space where growers and manufacturers can contribute as the industry continues to grow,” said Ms. Christine Shaw, Senior Vice President of PennWell’s LED & Lighting Network.

Editor-in-chief of LEDs Magazine Maury Wright has witnessed the growth of the industry first hand. “Horticultural lighting is one of the most exciting emerging applications for the LED sector. Our new microsite promises to serve up the latest in enabling technologies and lighting products for the application along with the latest thinking on topics such as light recipes and details on successful projects around the globe,” he said.

The soft opening of the microsite was announced at the opening plenary of the Horticultural Lighting Conference at The Palmer House Hotel in Chicago on October 12, 2016 to a sold out room of over 250 industry manufacturers and growers.

“While the global market for horticultural LED lighting products in 2015 was approximately $600M, we are forecasting that the market will have a CAGR over 50% through 2021. This potential growth makes LED lighting for horticultural applications one of the most exciting sectors in the lighting market today,” said Philip Smallwood, Director of Research for Strategies Unlimited market research firm.
