Navigant Research Report Shows Global Annual Revenue for Residential Lighting Controls is Expected to Reach $1.5 Billion in 2027

To improve revenue and adoption of LED technology, lighting manufacturers are turning to lighting controls

BOULDER, Colo.--()--A new report from Navigant Research provides global market forecasts for residential energy efficient lighting and lighting controls segmented by region, technology type, product type, and building type, through 2027.

The residential market for connected LED lighting lamps, luminaires, and controls is growing. Increased interest in the smart home and desire for home automation is spurring global adoption of connected LED lighting. Click to tweet: According to a new @NavigantRSRCH report, global annual residential lighting controls revenue will grow from $963.0 million to $1.5 billion from 2018 to 2027.

Despite the added value of connected LEDs, overall market penetration of these products is still small. This is partly due to consumers’ lack of understanding of the value and use cases of connected lighting products.

“Declining LED prices and the longer lifetime are helping to drive adoption of non-connected LEDs,” says Krystal Maxwell, a research analyst with Navigant Research. “However, these drivers are different for connected LEDs, which are centered around growing adoption of the smart home and added values of connected lighting focused on security and health.”

According to the report, lighting manufacturers are turning toward lighting controls and connected products to continue adding value for customers. Controls and connected LED products also provide manufacturers a new or increased revenue stream as revenue for residential lamps declines. This is due to declining LED prices and the replacement of legacy lighting products with longer lasting LEDs. However, even with the increased number of available controls products, demand for controls in the residential sector is still not strong.

This Navigant Research report, Market Data: Residential Energy Efficient Lighting and Lighting Controls, analyzes the global market for residential energy efficient lighting and lighting controls. The study focuses on residential non-LED, LED, and connected LED luminaires and lamps. Residential lighting controls are also included in this assessment, including sensors, timers, dimmers, and connected controls.
