LED Commercial Lighting Overtaking Traditional Lights

Picture of Lighting Solutions

Sales of traditional incandescent and fluorescent lights are falling, and this trend is likely to continue as people realise the benefits of replacing them with LED lights. This is not just in the UK. An American market research company projects that globally by 2025, over £90 billion worth of LED lights will have been sold. For a market currently worth less than £30 billion, this represents an impressive expansion.

There are several factors they say are driving this worldwide swing:

  • No matter which country they looked at, more businesses are opting for LED lights for their commercial lighting needs. This is led by the need for businesses to cut costs while also reducing their carbon footprint.

  • Some governments have initiatives to encourage people to change to LED lights, largely because of rising power consumption and the overloading burden on the electricity grid. Some of them are not just offering to help businesses make the change, but are also leading by example, altering all their premises to LED lights.

  • The longer life and lower maintenance costs of LED lights. This is even more obvious with street lights, as this not only has all the other advantages, but means there is less of a health and safety issue as workers are not having to change bulbs as often, in situations where they are working above heavy traffic on main roads.

The report goes on to say that LED bulbs will remain a top selling product, but the demand for LED tubes and fixtures will grow. The researchers expect more than 50% of the growth will be accounted for by installation service companies, with a large portion of their work being commercial lighting. As 2025 passes, more homes will be starting to follow suit and changing to LED lights, for both indoor and outdoor use.

Another report by a different market research company showed similar findings, saying that indoor lighting will continue to account for the largest amount of sales, and experience the highest rate of growth, largely due to customer awareness of energy efficiency and the increasing number of smart lighting systems.
