A power outage is an issue with many countries that lead to significant losses at work. Emergency lights can resolve the issue to an extent. Power outages are rising in many countries, which increases the applications of emergency lights. Egypt suffers from frequent power outages due to poor organization and lack of maintenance in the infrastructure. Countries that face power outages due to lack of organization and resources opt for emergency lighting solutions to reduce financial losses. Manufacturers of emergency lights can capitalize on these markets for growth.

Technavio’s analysts categorize the global emergency lights market into three major segments by application. They are:

  • Industrial
  • Commercial
  • Residential

By revenue, the industrial segment accounted for the major share of 49% of the global emergency lights market in 2015, due to the demand from industries like construction, warehouse, and storage. It was closely followed by the commercial segment with a share of 36% and the residential segment with a share of 15%. Increasing safety regulations and the increasing construction of commercial buildings have also contributed to the growth of the global emergency lights market.

Global emergency lights market for industrial applications

The demand for emergency lights is expected to be driven by the increasing industrialization across the world. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment in the construction industry increased from 5.43 million in 2011 to 6.36 million in 2015. The global construction industry is growing rapidly, which will have a direct positive impact on the global emergency lights market as it occupies 3%-7% of overall lighting units.

According to Sarah Haque, a lead analyst from Technavio, “Heavy industries, including machinery manufacturing, oil and gas, shipbuilding, steel, chemical, and paper mills, are a key end-user in the industrial segment. These industries are capital intensive, and any power-related issues can cause substantial damage to the business.”

Global emergency lights market for commercial applications

Emergency lights such as safety signs, directional signs, exit routes, and standby lights are used in commercial buildings like hospitals, educational institutions, shopping malls, and office buildings. In 2015, the global market for emergency lights for commercial applications was valued at USD 1.28 billion. With the increasing regulations by local and international safety authorities, the adoption of emergency lights in commercial buildings is increasing.

Commercial building owners prefer energy-efficient solutions, as there is a rise in commercial buildings. Commercial buildings account for the highest primary energy consumption and the corresponding carbon emissions in a country. So, industry stakeholders are collaborating introduce advanced energy-efficient products,” says Sarah.

Global emergency lights market for residential applications

Developing countries that face frequent power outages are engaged in constant policy planning and investments to address this issue. Consumers use flashlights, portable emergency lights, inverters, and UPS as backup sources in the event of power failures. Due to such hindrances, the growth of the emergency lights market is moderate in these regions. The urban population in developing regions use UPS as a source of power supply during power outages, while the rural population adopts cost-efficient portable emergency lights.

Emergency lights for residential application exhibit slow growth as many substitutes like an emergency light stick and battery-operated candles are available. In developing countries, the adoption of wall mounted or self-contained emergency lights for residential applications is lower than developed countries, where the high awareness of benefits using emergency lights drives adoption.
