What is the Future Outlook on Industrial Lighting in Comparison to Historic Sales?

In earlier times, the market was dominated by high intensity discharge lighting for heavy duty usage, but as industries developed, this lighting proved to be inefficient in terms of electricity consumption (it takes 20-25 minutes for HIDs to run at full power after starting), low flexibility, usage of toxic substance, high maintenance, etc.

However, the market gained pace with the entry of advances products such as LEDs, and the availability of these products became easier for end users across the globe. Manufactures have increased production capabilities and are encouraged by Industry 4.0 and energy and resource savings, which led the market for industry lighting to expand at a CAGR of over 3% during the last 5 years.

Research & development in industrial lighting is anticipated to make significant contribution to market growth over the years to come. Several other new features by existing as well as emerging companies are likely to attract customers from other domains of the industry.

Owing to the ongoing crisis caused by COVID-19, production and supply chain activities witnessed a slump in 2020. Yet, consumption will improve with economic recovery post-pandemic. However, looking at the silver lining, the outbreak of COVID-19 had a positive effect on the demand for industrial lighting.

JLL, a private real estate service provider in the U.S. projected that the country needs another 100 million square feet of cold-storage facilities just to keep up with consumer demand and sales trends from e-Commerce, and this trend is not limited just to the U.S. Customer preference is inclining toward online shopping, thanks to pandemic. Increase in storage facilities will surge demand for industrial lighting across regions.

Persistence Market Research expects the global industrial lighting market to expand at close to 7% CAGR through 2031.

What is the Commercial Potential of Industrial Lighting?

Industrial lighting is mostly used in warehouses & cold storage and factory & production lines. Earlier, industrial lighting use was limited to provide illumination to the workspace, but in the 21st century, with the spark of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), industrial lighting manufacturers are focusing on providing smart, connected, and sustainable products.

With the use of advanced technologies such as AI & IoT, combined with sensors embedded in LEDs, end users have the ability to monitor and adjust lighting intensity (manual and automated sensing through movements) and perform regular remote maintenance and collect data for future reference.

Competitive price offerings and rise in end user satisfaction based on the performance and use of advanced technologies are the end results of R&D activities. Moreover, establishing sales and service facilities in emerging countries coupled with long-term partnerships with regional distributors are also paving the way for the expansion of channel reach.
