GLOBAL LIGHTING CONTROL SYSTEM MARKET SEGMENTATION
This research report includes a detailed segmentation by
- Communication Protocol
INSIGHTS BY COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL
Wired communication protocols account for over 70% share in the market. This is majorly due to high safety and reliability. They account for the highest percentage as they were invented way before wireless protocols and most buildings comprise wired systems. Furthermore, since wired systems do not need any technical skills to install or run, many end-users continue to use them. However, since the wiring is a tedious task and is highly inefficient to retrofit applications, the demand for wired control systems is growing at a slower rate.
Wireless communication currently accounts for a smaller portion; however, it is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. The increasing demand for smart and connected homes, rising internet penetration, and low installation cost are the major factors driving the demand for wireless communication protocols.
INSIGHTS BY APPLICATION
The indoor segment dominates the global lighting control system market share, accounting for over 90% of the market with an expected growth of over 18% during the forecast period. The outdoor segment constituted approx. 8% share of the global market in 2020; however, it expects to grow at a fast CAGR of over 23% during the forecast period. Increased focus of government agencies toward efficient energy usage and reduced carbon emission are taking initiatives to incorporate highly efficient lighting systems in outdoor settings. Increasing infrastructural activities in residential and commercial sectors across the world, along with rising disposable income and the growing demand for smart cities and smart houses, are the significant factors contributing to the growth of lighting systems. Installation and use of lighting controls are providing enormous opportunities for energy savings globally. The inherent properties of SSL offer the opportunity to integrate controls and increase the energy savings potential of lighting systems. The controllability of LED technology and the low cost to integrate sensing, data processing, and network interface hardware are expected to boost the demand for lighting control systems from both indoor and outdoor applications.
INSIGHTS BY OFFERINGS
The hardware lighting control system market expects to reach approx. USD 18 billion by 2026. The hardware segment accounts for over 70% share in the market. The increasing installation of LED-based systems from government agencies to achieve energy efficiency and reduce operational expenditure is likely to drive demand for hardware components. Moreover, the increasing demand for infrastructural development and modernization requiring the deployment of the hardware component is influencing the market growth.
The global software & services market is likely to reach over USD 8 billion by 2026. With the advent of software technology, the dynamics of lighting control systems is witnessing significant changes. Moreover, vendors are focusing on providing services such as installation, maintenance, guidance, and support. The increased demand for energy savings, unified monitoring and maintenance of lighting equipment for functional and aesthetical designs, detecting faults and defects, and complying with safety regulations are significant factors leading to the growth of lighting control software.
INSIGHTS BY INSTALLATION
New installations are likely to account for almost 77% share of the market during the forecast period. A significant increase in construction activities, rapid infrastructural development, rising government concern about energy consumption in new buildings, and the growing installment of outdoor lighting demand for new installation. Although new installations currently dominate the market, the demand for retrofit installation expects to grow at a CAGR of almost 21% compared to 18% for new installations. The advent of IoT, lighting control software, wireless communication protocols, and requirements for replacing inefficient lights are propelling the demand for retrofit installations. The market is witnessing a growing demand for retrofit installations from several application end-users segments. However, the residential sector and outdoor lighting replacement are the major growth drivers. The advent of wireless technologies has boosted the demand for retrofit installation as there is no need for extensive wiring, which eventually reduces the initial cost. Governments across several countries are taking immediate actions to replace inefficient incandescent bulbs, mercury vapor lamps with efficient LED bulbs and lighting controls. However, the global lighting control system market is still expected to be dominated by new installations during the forecast period.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
In 2020, APAC dominated the lighting control system market accounting for over 42% share by revenue. Owing to its huge population, increasing affordability of consumers, rising awareness, and significant shift in lifestyle are expected to add fuel to the demand for lighting control systems. China, Japan, and South Korea are leading the region. However, countries such as India, Australia, and New Zealand expect to grow high CAGRs during the forecast period. China accounted for approx. 40% share in the APAC region, followed by Japan with a share of over 28%. Although India accounted for a low percentage, it is likely to grow at a CAGR of over 34% and could emerge as one of the fastest-growing countries in the market. Significantly increasing investments in infrastructural development, rising adoption of LED, and improving disposable income of people are expected to fuel the market growth in India.
