Drivers – LED lighting

  • Attractive Features Like As Eco-Friendliness, Energy Efficiency, And High Durability Are Expected To Propel The Worldwide LED Lighting Market Forward:

LED lighting has several advantages, including flexible technology, low maintenance, a variety of colors, long-term endurance, and more. As a result of these characteristics, LED lighting is becoming more popular in a variety of applications. For example, the typical estimated lifespan of an LED light bulb is 50,000 hours, compared to 10,000 hours and 1,200 hours for fluorescent and incandescent light bulbs, respectively. Furthermore, an average LED lamp uses 50% less energy than a fluorescent lamp and 80% less energy than an incandescent lamp. The increased popularity of LED lights in commercial and domestic applications is due to improved LED product performance. As a result, the worldwide LED lighting market is expanding.

LED prices have dropped, allowing them to be used in a wide range of applications, including residential, commercial, and industrial. This dramatic reduction in LED prices can be ascribed to technological developments, which have resulted in increased life expectancy and operating efficiency, propelling the LED lighting market. Furthermore, energy consumption in lighting applications is predicted to decrease with the development of energy-efficient lighting systems. The energy consumed by lighting in the United States, for example, is expected to decline by 40–60% by 2030 as compared to 2015, according to cautious estimates from the US Department of Energy.

  • Adoption of Smart Lighting to propel the market growth

With a rising number of businesses embracing smart lighting solutions, smart lighting has become a prominent trend in the market. These lighting solutions can detect people's movement and the number of people in the nearby area and alter the light accordingly. These smart lighting systems, when combined with LEDs, save roughly 30% on electricity. Furthermore, as part of ongoing "Smart City" programs, governments in a number of nations are aggressively promoting the use of smart street lighting. In India, for example, Naya Raipur (the new capital of Chhattisgarh) has erected one of the world's most advanced linked lighting systems that can be remotely monitored in 2022. 

Challenges – LED lighting

  • High Cost Is A Constraint To The Market:

Unlike traditional light sources such as incandescent bulbs, LEDs lack efficient self-cooling mechanisms, necessitating additional heatsinks or cooling methods to prevent overheating. While materials with high thermal conductivity are commonly used to disperse heat, they come with a considerable cost and weight premium. Transportation and material expenses contribute to the overall price escalation of both light sources and their fixtures. Moreover, LED drivers are often designed as general-purpose circuitry, increasing the overall cost. The fluctuating cost of white light LEDs adds complexity, requiring designers to exercise caution when selecting LEDs for specific lighting applications.
