Lux: LED Lighting Market To Grow Over 12-fold

Recessed modular will emerge as the largest luminaire market as LEDs displace incumbent technologies such as fluorescents
Driven by superior features and falling costs, the market for LED luminaires, or optimised permanent light fixtures, will grow more than 12-fold over the next decade - from $2 billion today to $25 billion in 2023.

This is a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25 percent, and is estimated by Lux Research.

Lux Research used historical trends as well as projected average price reductions to build a model that calculates the adoption rate of LEDs within each end market application - office, industrial and street lighting.

The firm found that recessed modular will emerge the largest LED luminaire market, growing from $1.5 billion in 2013 to $14.5 billion in 2023 by replacing incumbents such as fluorescent.

"As LED packages rapidly fall in cost and improve in efficiency, the cost structure of LED luminaires will shift, and present opportunities in other components such as secondary optics and drivers," says Christopher Hwang, Lux Research Associate and the lead author of the report titled, "Casting the Light: Illuminating the Opportunities in 2023's LED Luminaire Market."

"This trend, in turn, influences the rate of adoption of emerging technologies, such as alternating current (AC) LEDs and high-CRI LEDs in recessed modular, high-bay and roadway luminaires," he adds.

Lux Research analysts examined the LED landscape in order to identify the largest opportunities within the luminaire market for investors, technology developers and component suppliers. Among the firm's findings:

    Efficiencies will drive down LED package costs. LED package costs will fall over 80 percent to less than $4/klm on improved efficiency, increased manufacturing yields and utilization. As a result, the bill of materials (BOM) of a standard 3,500 lumen recessed modular luminaire will fall 35 percent, from $85 in 2013 to $55 in 2023.

    High-CRI LED will remain a niche product. AC LED-based luminaires will become cost competitive by 2018, but will provide a technology advantage only in low-power applications, such as recessed modular luminaires. In contrast, high-CRI luminaires will remain a niche product, with a 9 percent cost premium by 2023, finding adoption in high-occupancy applications.

    Optics market represents a huge opportunity. The LED package market will be dwarfed by opportunities in optics and drivers. The secondary optics market will be the single biggest growth opportunity in components, growing to $6.9 billion in 2023, while the drivers market will reach $4.9 billion.

The report, titled, "Casting the Light: Illuminating the Opportunities in 2023's LED Luminaire Market," is part of the Lux Research Energy Electronics Intelligence service.



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.
