LED Bulb Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023

$ 1499


The global LED bulb market reached a value of US$ 5 Billion in 2017. The market is further projected to reach around US$ 9 Billion by 2023, expanding at a CAGR of more than 11% during the year 2018-2023. LED (light emitting diode) bulb refers to an electric lamp comprising of numerous clusters of LEDs which are mounted on a base. In contrast with the conventional lighting sources, such as incandescent and fluorescent lights, LED bulbs are associated with innumerable advantages which include a compact size, longer lifespan, lower energy consumption and production of less heat output. Additionally, these bulbs are available in different watts, colours, shapes and dimmable control. On account of this, LED bulbs are being commonly used in the industrial, commercial and residential sectors worldwide.

Global LED Bulbs Market Drivers:

  • Currently, power consumption has been witnessing an increase across the world. The high rate of power consumption can be attributed to a rise in population worldwide, steep subsidies for electrical power by several countries and limited attempts to rationalise the consumption. Mounting consumption of electricity, however, has not been supplemented by adequate electricity production which is leading to a power crisis. Owing to this, there is a strong demand for energy-efficient products such as LED bulbs.
  • Manufacturers are undertaking unique marketing initiatives through various advertising mediums such as newspaper, television, etc. so as to expand their consumer-base. In addition to this, constant encouragement by government and other regulatory bodies, coupled with rising product awareness amongst the population is anticipated to impel the market growth.
  • Over the past few years, there has been a growing trend of promoting environmental protection and energy conservation. For instance, governments in some of the markets, such as China, India, etc., have been encouraging the use of LED lights in their respective countries. As a result, LED bulbs have emerged as one of the major energy-efficient lighting solutions which is envisaged to drive the market forward in the coming years.
  • LED bulbs are widely used in automotive, general lighting, mobile devices, signal and signage, healthcare, forensic, street lighting and academics. On account of rapid urbanisation and industrialisation in the developing countries, we expect the demand for LED bulbs to increase across various end-use industries in the long run.
