Market Outlook

The ambient lighting market size stood at $60.8 billion in 2019, and it is expected to grow at a 9.2% CAGR between 2020 and 2030. The burgeoning demand for energy-efficient lighting solutions, surging emphasis on smart lighting, and increasing stringency of the regulatory policies pertaining to energy efficiency are the key factors driving the market growth.

However, the COVID-19 pandemic has hindered the growth of the ambient lighting industry, as it delayed the launch of residential projects and disrupted the supply chain of electronic components in numerous countries, including India and China.

Ambient Lighting Market Outlook

Software and Service Demand To Grow Faster

The software and service category of the offering segment is expected to record the faster growth during 2020–2030. This will be due to the soaring demand for software for controlling the lighting in multiple settings, as per the requirement of users. Lighting control software provides improved functionality, such as color and brightness adjustment.

Highest Demand Being Witnessed for Recessed Lights

The recessed lights category, under the type segment, generated the highest revenue in 2019, as these lights can be used in commercial, as well as residential, settings. These lights offer improved illumination and an enhanced feel and look to the given space.

Automotive Category To Exhibit Fastest Growth

The ambient lighting market will showcase the fastest growth in the automotive category, in the end user segment, in the coming years. The booming vehicle production and increasing integration of interior lighting solutions in automobiles will drive this industry. For example, global automobile production grew from 95 million vehicles in 2016 to 97 million in 2018.

Asia-Pacific (APAC) Market Growth Thriving on Expanding Construction, Automotive, and IT Industries

The increasing construction of residential buildings, especially in China and India, and the improving automotive sector in the region will act as strong growth drivers for the market for ambient lighting in APAC. The adoption of ambient lighting is mushrooming in residential buildings due to the implementation of several government initiatives aimed at providing housing to the masses. Additionally, the rising automobile production in the major hubs, including South Korea, China, and Japan, will escalate the adoption of ambient lighting in APAC.

Additionally, the vast population and high disposable income have pulled the demand for ambient lighting from the construction projects in the region, primarily in China. For example, in 2019, residential construction in China recorded an increase of 8.7% from the 2018 figures. With the rising construction of residential units, the ambient lighting market will continue to prosper in the country.

Moreover, the flourishing information technology (IT) industry, especially in India and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries, such as Singapore and Malaysia, is boosting the installation of such lighting systems in the corporate sector. Moreover, the fast growth of the corporate sector in Indian cities, especially Bengaluru, Delhi, and Mumbai, will propel the industry growth in the region.

Ambient Lighting Market Regional Analysis

Declining LED Prices and Increasing Focus on Energy-Efficient Lighting Boosting Market Growth

The skyrocketing demand for light-emitting diode (LED) lighting solutions has become a key market trend, as an LED light uses 50% less energy to generate an equivalent intensity of light as produced by compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs). The reduced power consumption can directly curtail the annual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by approximately 700 million metric tons (MMT), thereby minimizing greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, LEDs do not produce ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and they are neutral in nature. Owing to these properties, LEDs have become more viable for indoor lighting, and they have the potential to completely replace CCFLs and CFLs in the ambient lighting market.

Toughening Energy Efficiency Regulations Driving Market

The rising consciousness about environmental degradation has resulted in the implementation of stringent policies related to the energy efficiency of lights, which are offering immense potential for cost and energy savings in various sectors. For example, the U.S. Energy Standard for Buildings, implemented by the U.S. Department of Energy, is a national model code for commercial buildings and a vital parameter for creating design and related systems.

Such model energy codes for commercial and residential buildings are estimated to cut down CO2 emissions by 841 MMT and save nearly $126 billion in electricity costs. In recent years, China, one of the largest countries in the market for ambient lighting, has emerged as one of the leading energy consumers in the world, accounting for around 14% of the global power usage, with lighting as the prime focus area. In this regard, China made significant commitments through its Development Plan for LED Lighting Industry in 2017 to boost energy savings via the installation of LED lights.

Ambient Lighting Market Growth Drivers

Mounting Focus on Smart Lighting Solutions Steering Market Growth

The magnifying demand for smart lighting solutions is another factor driving the growth of the ambient lighting market. The popularity of LEDs in the industrial sector can be owed to their exquisite design structure and high energy efficiency. Moreover, the wide LED adoption in the residential sector has broadened the scope of advanced designs and efficiency.

In addition, the advent of the internet of things (IoT) technology and Industry 4.0 and the high requirement for smart home solutions have inspired market players to experiment more with LED lights. As energy conservation and connected domestic devices have become the prime drivers of the present-day lifestyle, players are rapidly launching solutions that leverage advanced technologies to enhance functionality, aesthetics, and performance, thus paving a smooth way for smart lighting solutions.
