Global LED Bulb Market Trends:

The Rising Consumer Environmental Concerns and the Growing Emphasis on Energy-Efficiency

Individuals across the globe are focusing on environmental sustainability and energy efficiency, owing to the elevating consumer awareness towards the detrimental effects of greenhouse emissions. Consequently, they are widely using LED bulbs, which is providing significant opportunities to the LED bulb industry outlook. For instance, in July 2023, Signify Malaysia introduced a whole range of sustainable and energy-efficient lighting products for the Malaysian market. These products included Philips Ultra Efficient LED and Philips Solar Lighting solutions. Philips Ultra Efficient LED has advanced LED design and optics technology, consisting of a range of LED bulbs and LED tubes that consume 60% less energy than standard LED products of the same category. Moreover, it could deliver up to 50,000 hours of light and more than 3.5x the lifetime usage. In line with this, the Philips Solar Lighting range has a selection of solar products, such as solar wall lights, solar flood lights, solar garden or landscape lighting products, and others. Furthermore, government bodies are launching favorable policies, which is significantly propelling the LED bulb market share. For example, in June 2023, government bodies in the United States collaborated with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to facilitate energy enhancements in K-12 schools nationwide. They have funded US$ 178 Million. This financial support helped these education facilities to undertake projects that were focused on minimizing energy expenditures, reducing emissions levels, developing enhanced LED lighting solutions, etc.

The Rising Technological Advancements and Cost-Reduction

According to the LED bulb industry report, leading advancements, including continuous innovations in LED heat dissipation systems, chip design, optical components, etc., are resulting in higher lumens per watt (efficacy) and longer lifespans. This, in turn, is bolstering the market growth. For instance, Philips introduced the WiZ Smart Lighting, which can be controlled through Wi-Fi. This range further developed SpaceSense, the latest in motion sensing technology. In addition to this, General Electric announced that its smart LED bulbs series C had been integrated to work with Google Home devices via a Bluetooth connection, which could help consumers to control lighting through voice commands. Extensive investments in R&D activities have also led to cost reductions. Moreover, the rising need for affordable housing products, owing to the policies launched by government bodies, is also positively influencing the LED bulb market growth. For instance, in India, new product developments in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) increased over two-fold to 1,24,652 units. In India, the government has introduced several energy-saving programs. For example, the central government introduced the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) program, which was aimed at building 20 million affordable metropolitan housing units nationwide. Additionally, the president in Brazil also announced plans to restart the nationwide federal housing program for low-income individuals in February 2023. It was created by the program, named “Minha Casa, Minha Vida,” which translates to “My Home, My Life,”. Such instances elevated the demand for LED lighting in the country.

The Elevating Popularity of Smart Lighting and Customization Options

Leading players are introducing smart lightning solutions and customization options. Moreover, the widespread adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) is bolstering the growth of connected smart lighting systems in China. GSMA estimates that China may account for around 4.1 billion IoT connections, which is almost one-third of the worldwide IoT connections, by 2025. In line with this, in February 2023, Signify helped the German municipality of Eichenzell become a future-proof smart city through intelligent street lighting. Its BrightSites solution enabled Eichenzell to cater to next-generation IoT applications and future 5G densification. Signify installed LED lighting, which the Interact City System manages. Eichenzell can continuously monitor and manage all lights from a single dashboard. Furthermore, in January 2023, Savant company GE Lighting announced the expansion of its smart home ecosystem, called Cync. Cync launched its entire Dynamic Effects entertainment lineup, which included 16 million pre-sets, colors, and custom light shows, on-device music syncing, and other features. These advancements and partnerships are expected to bolster the market growth over the forecasted period.
