IHS: 19 Percent Of Transportation Lamp Revenue Is LED

Sector is also beginning to shift towards smart lighting 

LED lighting is forecast to reach 19 percent of total lamp revenue in transportation lighting in 2015, according to the latest projections by IHS, Inc.

The total worldwide revenue for office lamps is projected to reach $1.0 billion in 2015, of which $0.2 billion is anticipated to be LED. LED, which is increasing its market penetration, generally has a high initial installation cost, but lower maintenance and energy costs. The other main technology is high intensity discharge (HID).

The key factors used to make decisions about transportation lighting installations are security, quality of light, upfront costs, running cost, and ease of maintenance LED does well in most of these categories; however, one notable exception is its initial installation cost, which is higher than other technologies. 

In transportation lighting projects installed in 2014, service and maintenance accounted for 21 percent of project cost, compared with 58 percent for equipment, 17 percent for installation, and 4 percent for design and engineering.

Increasing use of LED lighting is only part of the story, as the lighting industry is also a shifting toward smart lighting, which is just beginning to penetrate the transportation sector, especially in urban street lighting, according to Jamie Fox, IHS' principal analyst for Lighting and LEDs.

The reasons for the shift to smart lighting are two-fold: First, it is common to dim or turn off lighting, depending on the time of day or ambient light levels; and second, centralized control of multiple street and transport lights is becoming more common. According to one rail operator, "eventually you are going to have every single light fitting monitored; you will know how it is working and when it is not working; everything will be centralised."



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.
