Market Overview

The outdoor LED lighting market is expected to register a CAGR of over 14.0% during the forecast period (2019 – 2024). LED technology helps offer small and efficient lighting solutions, to a diverse set of consumers, with power saving and enhanced efficiency.

  • LED is energy-efficient and provides better illuminating experience than incandescent lights. Additionally, the awareness about conserving energy among the consumers is driving the adoption of LED for outdoor applications.
  • The maintenance cost of LED lightings is significantly lower than that of the incandescent lights. Hence, in countries, like China and India, the governments are encouraging the adoption of LED technology for roadway and highway applications, in order to save energy and maintenance cost.
  • Additionally, the demand for smart controls in street lighting systems is boosting the growth of outdoor LED lighting market. On the other hand, the high initial investment for adopting LED lightings is restricting the market.

Scope of the Report

The energy-efficient and cheaper solutions offered by LED lightings have several applications across various industries. The scope of the study for the outdoor LED lighting market is limited to hardware product types and their wide range of end-user applications.

Key Market Trends

The Roadway and Highway Segment to Show Significant Growth

More than half of the global population now live in urban cities, and the ratio is continuously increasing per year. Moreover, in highly dense cities, this rate is even higher. Owing to rapid urbanization, major infrastructure developments, including construction of highways for connecting cities, are taking place. Hence, the demand for outdoor LED lightings is increasing.

LED lights consume 75% less energy and last for 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs.  They have the highest potential for saving energy and cost. Hence, replacing old lighting systems with LED lightings has been observed to be beneficial, due to which, the demand for new installations in the outdoor LED lighting market is significantly increasing.

The global LED penetration has been continuously increasing. According to Goldman Sach, it is expected to cross 60%, by 2020.

Government initiatives are also fueling the market growth, as many governments across the world are structuring regulations for encouraging LED adoption. For instance, in India, the government aims to replace 14 million street lights, across the country, with intelligent lighting control systems.

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Witness Highest Growth Rate

Asia-Pacific is currently experiencing a tremendous shift in lighting systems. Several companies operating in the region are increasingly adopting LED lighting, as compared to its counterparts, like incandescent and LFL, for use in their manufacturing plants, owing to the improved energy-efficiency offered by LED lighting systems.

In India, the government has implemented a series of policies and programs to support the development of the outdoor LED lighting industry, among which, the most important is  the SLNP (Street Light National Program), which is an initiative to replace 21 million streetlights with LED.

Additionally, in order to promote investments in the market, the Indian government has only imposed free tariff (basic tariff) on LED component imports, facilitating the LED products to enter the market as semi-finished products, in turn, developing the local market.

Southeast Asia is also becoming a major export hub for Chinese LED lighting products.

Additionally, the Japanese government’s long-term goals incorporate lighting projects and infrastructures related to the 2020 Olympics. These trends signify the growth of the outdoor LED lighting market in the region.
