Lighting controls market dominated by Europe

Industry Sector

The global lighting controls market has been forecast to hit a value of US$8 billion by 2018, with the industry set to be primarily driven by the growing demand for lighting controls from various end-use industries, including residential and industrial sectors.

A lighting control system consists of a device that controls electric lighting and devices, alone or as part of a daylight harvesting system, for a public, commercial, or residential building or property, or the theatre.

Lighting control systems are used for working, aesthetic, and security illumination for interior, exterior, and landscape lighting, and theatre stage lighting productions. They are often part of sustainable architecture and lighting design for integrated green building energy conservation programs.

Lighting accounts for approximately 25% of the commercial building sector's energy use. Lighting controls offer significant potential for reducing that energy use, and new technologies that have emerged in recent years have enabled a wide range of innovative strategies, from room-level awareness of occupancy and daylight sensing to building-wide coordination of a fully networked system.

The demand for lighting control systems is growing at a rapid pace across various sectors, including airports, hospitals, auditoriums, educational institutions, railway stations, as well as factories, warehouses, and workshops.

Increased spending in R&D, sophisticated manufacturing, and technological advancements have enabled the introduction of several innovative lighting control products, ideal for both the outdoor and indoor installations across various end-use segments.

Currently, Europe is the largest regional lighting controls market worldwide. It is closely followed by the USA, with Asia-Pacific offering the highest growth potential due to an increase in construction activity and mandatory government policies that require the incorporation of green technologies and adherence to various energy efficiency standards.
