Lighting Control Systems Market By Component (Hardware, Software), By Connectivity Type (Wired, Wireless), By End-user (Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Public & Government Buildings, Highways & Roadways, Transportation & Automotive, Architectural Lightings) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026


The global lighting control systems market was valued at US$ 14.5 Bn in 2017 and likely to witness a substantial growth, expanding at a CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. The growth of this market is mainly credited to the increasing awareness about energy conservation worldwide. Efficient lighting is undervalued as a tool to achieve substantial energy savings. Reducing energy consumption is the key factor in attaining energy sustainability objectives. As a result, controlling light is now one of the utmost needs for minimizing energy costs. When planning an energy efficient lighting installations, lighting control systems play a vital role and can help minimize energy consumption by up to 80%. Reducing or eliminating the use of electric light that is not required can save up to 30% of lighting energy costs and over 10% of total building energy costs.

Lighting control systems not only enables the lighting to be adjusted to suit the visual requirements but also allows it to shape and interpret the architecture. These systems assists in controlling lights through dimmers, sensors and timers and help adjust the power consumption in a room to its usage, while optimizing the economic efficiency of a lighting system. It has an ability to regulate the quality and level of light in a given space for precise situations or tasks. Controlling light appropriately not only enhances the experience, but also helps saving energy by using light where and when needed the most.

Rising demand for smart and better lighting infrastructure is another factor contributing towards the market growth. Smart lighting infrastructure provides assistance in sensing movement and number of people in the immediate vicinity, and then adjusts lights accordingly. Thus, development of smart lighting infrastructures likely to enhance further the growth of lighting control systems market.

"Wired Connectivity Type held the Largest Share of the Market in 2017"

In 2017, wired connectivity type accounted for majority share in the global lighting control systems market. Wired technology is more useful in new installations than retrofitting the existing lighting settings, where providing an overlay control system utilizing a wired infrastructure can be cumbersome and expensive. Although lighting control systems have been proven to reduce the consumption of lighting energy, commercial and industrial settings have been hesitant to install them due to the complexity, applicability and cost associated with wired lighting control technology. Wired technology require higher maintenance costs and larger initial investment. On the other hand, wireless technologies are eliminating these concerns while expanding the capabilities of lighting control systems. As a result, wireless connectivity type expected to provide superior growth prospects and projected to emerge as the fastest growing segment in the market during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.
