Tunnel Lighting System: Market Introduction
As road transport networks become ever more crowded, the use of tunnels and underpasses is expanding, both to improve traffic flow, and to protect local environments from increased traffic exposure. Within tunnels, maintenance access can be limited, and challenging atmospheric conditions are common, reliable performance of the lighting system is critical, as it is the basic need for the absolute minimum of operational maintenance requirements. The primary functions of tunnel lighting system are:
These aims are achieved by the adequate illumination of the tunnel interior, which allows drivers to quickly adjust to the light within, identify possible obstacles, and negotiate their passage without reducing speed. These requirements apply during the day when the contrast between outside and inside is significant and at night when it is less, but reversed. The 5 zones of tunnel lighting system CIE guidance (CIE 88-1990) states that the amount of light required within a tunnel is dependent on the level of light outside and on the point inside the tunnel at which visual adaptation of the user must occur.
Tunnel Lighting System: Properties & Market Dynamics
When planning the tunnel lighting system, there are 5 key areas to consider:
Tunnels are one of the most accident prone spots on a given stretch of road, especially highways where vehicles usually traverse at faster speeds compared to in-city roads. Thus maintaining proper visibility in tunnels for passenger safety is a critical part of overall traffic safety regulations. With strong focus on preventing accidents and enhancing safety for travelers, there are strict regulations in place concerning tunnel lighting systems. Moreover, the expansion of highway networks to previously unconnected parts of the world, especially inter-country mountainous regions has led to the need to construction of a large number of road tunnels. Moreover, development of metro train and subway train stations also requires the building of tunnels and efficient tunnel lighting systems. Thus, all of these factors are projected to positively impact the growth of tunnel lighting system market across different regions of the globe.

Opportunities for Participants in the Tunnel Lighting System Market
One of the greatest challenges of tunnel lighting system is their ability to support drivers’ visual perceptions—both day and night—from the point of entry through to the point of exit. Effective tunnel lighting system, therefore, requires consistent light levels throughout the structure for safe passage. Tunnel lighting system are also highly corrosive environments requiring sealed and durable luminaires. Due to heavy traffic and fluctuations in weather and climate, tunnel fixtures are continually exposed to water, dirt, road salt, exhaust fumes, brake dust and other corrosive agents. Thus the development of lighting fixtures specific to the environmental conditions of different tunnel locations can provide new growth opportunities for market players in the tunnel lighting system market.
