US Demand For LED Lighting To Rise More Than 10 Percent Annually

The lighting market is predicted to increase to $11.7 billion in 2017
According toFreedonia Industry Market Research's report, "LEDs & High Efficiency Lighting," US demand for high efficiency lighting is forecast to increase more than 10 percent annually to $11.7 billion in 2017.


This will be supported by technological improvements and regulatory changes designed to lower electricity used in lighting applications.


The US market for high efficiency lighting continues to adjust to the provisions of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007, which is leading to a phase-out of traditional incandescent lamps and supporting demand for products such as LEDs and compact fluorescent lamps.


Technological innovations that are improving the performance of LEDs and many types of high efficiency lamps are also supporting demand. In addition, particularly in the LED segment, improvements in manufacturing are leading to lower purchase prices for many products, thereby boosting market penetration for these efficient lighting products.


However, because high efficiency lighting products have much longer useful lives, the average replacement rate will decrease over time, eventually depressing high efficiency lighting demand.


LEDs to be fastest growing high efficiency lighting


Demand for LEDs will grow the fastest of any high efficiency lighting product through 2017. Increased penetration in many residential and non-residential building applications, as well as in the outdoor lighting market, will support advances. While the high initial price of LEDs has hindered their adoption in many traditional lighting applications, technological innovations that reduce costs and improve performance will make these products increasingly competitive.


The market for other energy efficient linear fluorescent lamps will also register strong growth, supported by heightened penetration of T5 and T8 lamps, in place of less efficient T12 products. In addition, the rebound in non-residential building construction will provide some prospects.


Building market to offer best growth opportunities


Through 2017, the building market for high efficiency lighting products will post especially strong growth, supported by a shift to higher value, longer lasting lighting products and driven in part by rising efficiency standards for lamps.


Residential demand will be bolstered by the replacement of less efficient lighting that has been phased out due to EISA. Businesses, institutions, and government entities will turn to high efficiency lighting products to lower energy expenses and to reduce the labour costs of replacing lighting products. Over the longer term, the market will be restrained by the longer service lives of LEDs and newer lamp products, which will limit replacement demand.




AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
