Southeast Asia is gradually developing into a very dynamic LED lighting market. Thanks to the rapid economic growth, large infrastructure investment and large population, there is a great demand for lighting.LED lighting penetration in the Middle East and Africa is rapidly increasing, and the future market potential is still to be expected.

Analysis on the development trend of global LED lighting industry in the future

In 2018, the global economy is in turmoil, many countries are in economic downturn, market demand is weak, and the growth momentum of LED lighting market is flat and weak. However, under the background of continuous favorable energy conservation and emission reduction policies of various countries, the global LED lighting industry penetration rate is still improving.

In the future, with the continuous development of lighting energy-saving technology, the leading role of traditional lighting market is being transformed from incandescent lamps to leds, and the wide application of new generation of information technology such as Internet of things, next generation Internet and cloud computing, smart city has become an inevitable trend.In addition, from the perspective of market demand, emerging countries in southeast Asia and the Middle East have strong demand.It is predicted that the global LED lighting market will present three development trends in the future: smart lighting, niche lighting and lighting in emerging countries.


Development trend one: intelligent lighting

With the maturity of technology, products and related concepts, it is estimated that the global smart lighting market will reach 13.4 billion usd by 2020.Industry and commerce are the largest application fields of smart lighting. Due to the characteristics of digitalization, smart lighting will bring more new business models and value growth points for these two fields.

Trend 2: niche lighting

Four major niche lighting markets, including plant lighting, medical lighting, fishery lighting and Marine port lighting.Among them, the rapid increase of demand for plant lighting, plant plant construction and greenhouse lighting in the United States and China is the main driving force.

Development trend three: emerging countries lighting

Economic development in emerging countries drives infrastructure and urbanization, and large commercial facilities and infrastructure and industrial construction stimulate LED lighting demand.In addition, the energy conservation and emission reduction policies of various national and local governments, such as energy subsidies and tax incentives, as well as large-scale standard projects such as street lamp replacement, residential and commercial transformation, as well as the improvement of lighting product standard certification, are all promoting the promotion of LED lighting.Vietnam and India are the fastest growing markets in southeast Asia.,
