Market Overview

The global emergency lighting market size was valued at USD 7.05 billion in 2022. It is projected to reach USD 17.03 billion by 2031, growing with a CAGR of 10.3% during the forecast period (2023–2031).

Emergency lighting is an electronic light technology specifically adopted to reduce the potential injury of the occupants in case of any emergency, such as fire, storm, or any natural disaster. Fluorescent light and LEDs are mainly adopted as lighting sources in the emergency lighting industry. Certain laws and regulations by both national and local regulatory agencies have resulted in the mandatory adoption of emergency lights in residential, commercial, and industrial applications.

Emergency lights and exit signs are mainly adopted to ensure a safe exit from any location or building by providing clear visual conditions for finding escape routes. These LED exit signs have gained wide popularity owing to their low energy consumption, increased lifespan, and reasonable price. Various regulatory agencies, such as National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), have set up certain standards for exit sign implementation.

Market Dynamics

What are the key factors driving industry growth?

Safety Regulations

Buildings primarily represent an important structure where fire accidents can have fatal consequences. Therefore, strict norms and fire safety regulations have been put in place specifically for buildings. The buildings should be designed in such a way that there are appropriate provisions for early warning of fire and appropriate means of escape in case of fire from the building to a place of safety outside the building. For instance, there are various regulating agencies that set the requirements for emergency lighting and exit signs, such as National Fire Protection Association and Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Rules and regulations set by these agencies and local authorities should be followed during the construction of buildings. For instance, OSHA's requirement for lighting and marking exit routes are covered under 1910.37(b) and states that the exit routes must be adequately lit in order for a person with normal vision to be able to see the path. A dependable light source must illuminate exit signs to a minimum surface value of 54 lux. Signs made of electrified luminescence with a minimum surface value of 0.06 foot-lamberts are acceptable.

Incorporating Emergency Lighting in Aesthetics

Emergency lighting is mandated by the NFPA and International Building Code (IBC) to ensure sufficient light along the path of egress in the event of a power outage or other emergency. Although electrical engineers are normally the ones to handle this, many lighting designers and architects would rather meet these demands with stylish answers that complement the overall design of the building. However, dedicated emergency lighting is frequently considered to be big and bulky, intrusive, and even unattractive. Two lamps plus a large power pack make up one of the most popular and affordable solutions; this device is sometimes called a "bug-eye" light. However, more fashionable choices are available. The most popular choice is incorporating existing architectural lighting in the emergency lighting plan. There are more fashionable variations of bug-eye lights, as well as several choices that conceal emergency lighting until required. Some are even painted or coated in wallpaper so that they mix in with the surrounding decor.

What are the main obstacles to market expansion?

High Installation Costs

The capital investment and operational costs associated with the installation of effective emergency lighting systems are significantly high. The provision of adequate emergency illumination presents various challenges for architects, electrical specialists, and lighting designers. Before beginning any emergency lighting design, the necessary information regarding the premises must be gathered via blueprints, site surveys, or the building. The design and installation of emergency lighting systems may be subpar and inefficient due to a lack of knowledge. The high costs can result in the incorporation of low-quality components in emergency lighting systems.

Regional Analysis

Geographically, the global emergency lighting market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa (LAMEA).

North America is anticipated to have significant growth in the market for emergency lighting. Higher consumer awareness about the benefits of using emergency lights in an emergency is mainly propelling the market growth. Additionally, the lighting sector's technological developments in the region are providing the market with significant room for expansion. Favorable rules and regulations adopted by the government in outdoor lighting are also driving the growth of the emergency light and exit sign market. For instance, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) in the United States largely oversees the fire safety of commercial and large residential structures. The law requires emergency lighting and exit signage in both private and public infrastructure across the country. Canada is among the richest nations in the world and has one of the largest economies. Its economy is based primarily on construction. Around 50 towers were finished in major cities like Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary within the past ten years, which represents a significant increase in infrastructure and building. The construction sector’s growth presents lucrative opportunities for the market under study.

Europe is one of the prominent regions in the global emergency lighting and exit sign market owing to its increased demand in the residential sector. All of the nations in this region have experienced significant urbanization, which has raised more worries about safety. Confederation of Fire Protection Association Europe (CFPAE) recommends that emergency lighting have a luminous intensity of at least 1 lux on floor surfaces. The future market potential is expected to be lucrative as a result of the expansion of the construction industry, particularly in nations like Spain, the UK, and Germany. The Europe Market was dominated by Germany.

The market growth in the Asia-Pacific region is attributed to the increasing population, thereby propelling the demand for construction projects. This growth in population, coupled with rising purchasing power, is primarily driving the growth of the construction sector. The industry is also growing as a result of an increase in government initiatives, particularly in Japan, India, and the Philippines, to promote the use of LED lighting. Additionally, China and India's increasing infrastructure spending is driving the Asia-Pacific emergency lighting industry. The market for emergency lighting in India is driven by rising safety concerns, which also promote innovation in more advanced technologies, including flame-proof specifications and LED lamps' efficient energy use. Demand is anticipated to increase as construction and development activity in hotels, theatres, airports, and office complexes soar. Additionally, in the upcoming years, the APAC area will host sporting events, including the Winter Olympics, ICC Cricket World Cup, Asian Games, Summer Olympics, and Hockey World Cup. The market for emergency lighting in Asia-Pacific is already expanding due to this.

Countries in the Middle East, especially UAE and Saudi Arabia, are mainly considered central hubs for the construction of businesses, industries, and homes due to their dynamic economy and large population. In South America, the government wants to make the tourism industry more sustainable, with a focus on making the region a center for medical and health tourism. Brazil was the top nation in Central and South America for the construction of resorts and hotels, with almost 9,000 accommodations under construction. Profitable potential for the market for emergency lights is presented by this scenario.
