Covid-19 Analysis

COVID-19 has impacted various industries across the globe resulting in travel bans, worldwide lockdown, and the slowdown in the supply chain of multiple businesses. The semiconductor industry has also been deeply affected by the ongoing unprecedented event and witnessed a sharp decline in revenues due to the uncertain positioning of technological devices. Despite the growing uncertainties, semiconductors manufacturers, especially LED makers, are trying to continue the operations and working on their long-term strategies. Many semiconductor manufacturers are also collaborating with their partners and specific LED Lighting Market with consistent business stability. For instance, while focusing on the health and safety of their employees, the semiconductor manufacturers are making constant efforts for research, designs, and manufacturing processes. The urgency for continuing operations has occurred within the semiconductor industry for their end users, including medical and healthcare technologies, such as artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0, and 5G, that are working to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.


The global market for LED Lighting is expected to grow rapidly during the forecast period. The growth of the global LED lighting market is mainly driven by factors such as the increasing demand for energy-efficient lighting systems and the rising focus on LED standardization. Moreover, the development of advanced lighting systems creates an opportunity for LED Lighting Market growth. However, the lack of awareness may slow the growth of the LED lighting market during the forecast period.

  • Drivers

    • Increasing Demand For Energy-Efficient Lighting Systems

Lighting is frequently employed in everyday life. It has a significant impact on the quality of life and the productivity of workforces. Artificial lighting extends the working day, allowing people to work in their homes, workplaces, buildings, and industries. Lighting is one of the least expensive goods for implementing such solutions. LED Lighting Market and luminaires are quickly becoming popular in general lighting applications across the world. This product demand is anticipated to increase as LED technology improves in terms of performance and becomes less expensive, replacing conventional light sources with more efficient and higher-performing LED technology.

This can be helpful in achieving low maintenance costs and longer operational life of LED lights compared to conventional lights. LEDs are being widely deployed at parking lots, tunnels, stadiums, and streets. Moreover, the increasing government initiatives promoting the usage of energy-efficient lighting sources and reducing energy consumption are augmenting the demand for Smart LED lighting solutions. Local authorities in several countries are adopting these systems to completely replace their current lighting systems. The state government of the US in NA started replacing the existing conventional streetlights with smart, energy-efficient LED Lighting Market. Hence, energy efficiency, combined with low carbon emissions and thermal pollution, the market has made LEDs a popular choice. According to the US Department of Energy, by 2027, the widespread use of LEDs could save about 348 TWh (compared to no LED use) of electricity. This is the equivalent of the annual electrical output of forty-four large electric power plants (1,000 megawatts each) and a total savings of more than USD 30 billion considering the current electricity prices. Thus, the increasing demand for energy-efficient lighting systems is expected to drive the growth of the global LED lighting market during the forecast period.

  • Opportunity

    • Development Of Advanced Lighting Systems

The adoption of improved advanced lighting systems is one of the most cost-effective ways for commercial building owners to reduce energy usage, save on operating expenses, and reduce their carbon footprints due to substantial advancements in lighting technology. Upgrades in lighting also improve the quality and aesthetics of an area, improving user comfort and raising property values and rentals. Lighting system improvements may be performed at varying levels of complexity, ranging from changing specific components (such as bulbs, ballasts, or sensors) to relighting or rebuilding entire rooms. Advancements in LED technology and continued innovation by prominent market players are contributing to the high LED lighting sales across the globe. The emergence of smart light filling technology is anticipated to boost the growth potential of the market. For example, Signify Holding introduced its GreenPower LED Interlighting Gen 3 technology to promote efficient development in crops. Such developments are likely to pave the way for new growth opportunities in the region. Many companies in the global market have introduced wireless technologies to their LED Lighting Market.

  • Restraints

    • Lack Of Awareness

Lack of awareness about the energy, as well as cost, saving potentials of efficient lighting is fairly limited amongst investors, architects, designers, developers, and construction firms. Lighting is frequently seen as a relatively minor problem in construction projects in contrast to other concerns. Hence, the selection of energy-efficient lighting solutions that best respond to the demands of individual buildings/rooms is not always a priority. The costs associated with any lighting installation comprise the equipment cost for luminaires and other hardware, the cost of labor to install it, and the charges associated with electricity usage. The overall equipment cost ranges from USD 238 to USD 510 and includes lamps, mounting hardware, and connections (labor is listed separately). The labor cost involved in electrical installations ranges from approximately USD 20 to USD 80 for troffer lighting installation, regardless of whether it is LED or fluorescent, and about USD 25 to USD 85 for simply switching the devices. The electricity cost in the US average rate in 2011 was about USD 0.12/kWh. As per the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average electricity cost in the US rose to USD 0.129/kWh by August 2016. The cost and maintenance associated with LED Lighting Market are less than conventional lighting; however, the awareness is not as much as it should be. Thus, the lack of awareness is expected to act as a restrain for the growth of the global LED lighting market during the forecast period.
