The global industrial LED market size was valued at USD 12,102.9 million in 2022. It is estimated to reach USD 47,270.6 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 17.4% during the forecast period (2023–2031).
The light emitted by the filament inside an incandescent light bulb results from the electrical energy getting converted into heat energy eventually converted into light energy. A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source that directly transforms electrical energy into light energy. Instead of incandescent light sources, these devices are frequently used in lamps. Industrial LED is a factory lighting system requiring great illumination and energy efficiency. Industrial LEDs also help prevent workplace mishaps by helping identify unsafe or hazardous working conditions and providing an illumination source for workers to conduct daily activities.
Industrial LED can be used in various settings, including loading docks, cold storage, outdoor areas, offices, task lighting, and manufacturing floors. Industrial lighting has several benefits, such as ease of retrofitting, increased efficiency, less maintenance, better durability, even coverage, unequaled controllability, improved light quality, and a safer atmosphere.
Lighting consumes approximately 15 percent of the total energy produced in the world. Moreover, about 5% of the world's carbon emissions come from lighting. In order to lower carbon emissions, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has published some advice on energy-efficient lighting options. Over the next two decades, the lighting sector is anticipated to develop tremendously due to fast urbanization and economic expansion, creating a strong demand for LED-based lighting. Consequently, the demand for more LED-based lighting to achieve high cost and energy savings is anticipated to propel market expansion in the future.
Governments from various countries have focused on deploying LED technology-based lights to curb cost and pollution. The global market is expanding because of different nations' favorable attitudes toward adopting LED technology. For instance, multiple test labs have been developed in India to overcome the lack of national testing facilities, facilities for testing, and recognized laboratories. In addition, the Indian Government has curtailed VAT to promote LED technology adoption. Similarly, the German Government provides subsidies to municipalities to replace lighting in publicly owned facilities, such as old street lighting, with new LED technology. Thus, all these factors significantly contribute to the growth of the global market.
Additionally, conventional lighting consumes high energy and requires a glass bulb to contain essential coatings and gases. For instance, fluorescent lamps generate light using a gas discharge to excite phosphors; high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps utilize an electric arc discharge, while incandescent lamps rely on a heated filament to emit light. In the case of an LED, it can directly convert electrical energy into light energy, which characterizes it with less power consumption and higher reliability. Moreover, LEDs are now much more efficient than traditional lighting due to features like their exceptionally small and compact size and long-lasting resilience, which is predicted to boost the demand for industrial LEDs during the projection period.
The performance of an LED majorly depends upon the temperature of the operating environment. Overdriving an LED in high ambient temperature conditions leads to overheating the overall LED package, resulting in device failure. The problem arises in automotive, medical, and military applications where LEDs are expected to operate over large temperature ranges with a minimum failure rate. LEDs should also be supplied with voltages over the threshold and currents below the rating because they are voltage sensitive. These factors limit the adoption of LEDs, thereby hampering the market's growth.
Creating smart cities is projected to gain a lot of momentum thanks to smart lighting solutions. Using smart lighting to overcome issues with sustainable development creates ample opportunities for the industrial LED market. The "smart cities" market was estimated to be worth USD 517.63 billion in 2017 and is anticipated to grow to USD 2,402.12 billion by 2025, with a CAGR of 21.28% between 2018 and 2025. Governments have played a crucial role in the smart cities market through their regulations and initiatives focused on deploying smart services as a major part of their infrastructure. In addition, government regulations for implementing smart cities, supported by the adoption of new technologies that support Industry 4.0, smart energy initiatives, e-governance solutions, and the need for enhanced quality of life, are estimated to act as the main opportunities for the market's growth.
