Outdoor Lighting Market Trends




  • High demand for Outdoor LED lighting is driving the market growth




Market CAGR for outdoor lighting is driven by the rising demand for outdoor LED lighting. In addition to warehouses and other locations, LED lighting is also used in homes, businesses, and governmental structures. Throughout the world, electricity is mostly utilised to illuminate streets and other public areas in cities, towns, and villages. All lighting applications must make the paradigm change from conventional lighting systems to linked LED technology to be energy and financially viable. The extended lifespan of LED lights, in addition to their well-known energy efficiency, lowers maintenance and replacement expenses. Government representatives in US communities pay close attention to the most recent advancements in lighting because they view it as more than just a source of illumination. Traditional light bulbs cannot reach the same results as smart lights, which may wirelessly interface with different networks to gather various forms of data such as surrounding foot traffic and even contribute to lowering crime rates. Emerging nations are becoming more interested in the LED lighting system as it fits into their plans for economic modernisation.


Moreover, governments across the globe are promoting the adoption of energy-efficient lighting is likely to favor the growth of the outdoor lighting market. For instance, in August 2022, The US federal government unveiled the Climate Smart Building Initiative, which will enhance the government's collaboration with the private sector to modernize federal buildings. This initiative includes improving on-site renewable electricity generation, providing efficient lighting, and installing electric vehicle supply infrastructure.


Further, the growing traffic has been one of the primary reasons for the development of unique highways and streets. The growing number of passenger vehicles is the primary factor for global traffic congestion, fueled by growing urbanization and rising disposable income. To decrease traffic jams on the road, governments in various countries, including the US, China, and India, strongly focus on investing in road infrastructural development. For instance, in the US, the $3.3 billion Hampton Roads Bridge-Tunnel expansion project, such as the building of a four-lane tunnel and a widening from four to eight routes on I-64 in an area between Norfolk and Hampton, is expected to complete by 2024, which, in turn, drive the demand and utilization of highways, streets, and tunnel lightings.


The rising adoption of energy-efficient lighting solutions is driving the market growth owing to the growing government focus on promoting energy saving using energy-efficient lighting sources, predominantly LEDs. LEDs are particularly advantageous in outdoor lighting applications, as they work efficiently for long-operating hours at low- maintenance costs driving the outdoor lighting market revenue.
