Light-Emitting Diodes for Residential Applications are Expected to Exceed 1.1 Billion in Annual Unit Shipments by 2023, According to Navigant Research

Connected lighting systems promise to alter the way people interact with in-home lighting, report finds

BOULDER, Colo.--()--A new report from Navigant Research analyzes the global market for residential energy efficient lighting and lighting controls, including global market forecasts for LED, incandescent, halogen, and fluorescent lighting.

Prices for light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have come down dramatically, and the market for LED luminaires and lamps is set to explode in the residential sector as prices continue to fall, efficacy improves, and new use cases for lighting develop. Accompanying the spread of LEDs are advances in connected lighting that promise to dramatically alter the way people interact with the lighting in their homes. Click to tweet: According to a new report from Navigant Research, worldwide shipments of LEDs for residential applications are expected to grow from 81 million annually in 2014 to more than 1.1 billion by 2023.

“At the same time that many countries are phasing out or banning incandescent light bulbs, prices for LED bulbs are falling dramatically, especially for the popular A-type bulbs,” says Jesse Foote, senior research analyst with Navigant Research. “While compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) are still less expensive than LEDs, they cannot offer the same performance, and their use of mercury is an ongoing concern. LED adoption is therefore expected to increase rapidly in the coming years, as consumers choose to switch from incandescent to LEDs rather than to CFLs.”

Some LEDs are being designed with an embedded radio that allows the homeowner to remotely control a bulb, or a group of bulbs, using a smartphone, rather than the traditional wall switch. For lamp manufacturers facing revenue pressure because of the longer replacement cycles of LED lamps, the connected lighting revolution is likely to provide a timely boost, according to the report.

The report, “Residential Energy Efficient Lighting and Lighting Controls,” analyzes the global market for residential energy efficient lighting and lighting controls. It focuses on LED lamps and luminaires while also forecasting sales for three additional lamp technologies – incandescent, halogen, and fluorescent – as well as a number of control devices, including occupancy sensors, photosensors, timers, dimmers, lighting-only networks, and home energy management systems. Global market forecasts for unit shipments and revenue, segmented by region, lamp type, product type, and building type, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key technologies related to residential energy efficient lighting and lighting controls, as well as the competitive landscape. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
