2015 LED Lighting Market Forecast

According to LEDinside research center, LED lighting market in 2015 takes up nearly US$25.7 billion.

LEDinside deputy manager, Joanne Wu said Europe will dominate 23% LED lighting market, attributing the largest market share of worldwide LED lighting market. Wu noted that commercial LED lighting and architectural LED lighting are the most increasing demand in LED luminaires application due to the high electricity cost and consumption.

China comprises 21% of entire LED lighting market, ranking second to Europe. As the worldwide manufacturing center, China boast of integral LED lighting supply chain and cost advantage. However, China LED lighting market has stirred up ignited competition. Lighting companies are expanding their LED lighting business. In 2015, LED lighting market will continue grow up on the back of stable demand. Yet developing viable business channels is the top priority of vendors in China. “With no proper distribution channels, manufacturers will be forced to exit the market.”Wu observed.

The United States hold 19% of the global LED lighting market. In America, certification for LED light products is currently on the rise. For exporters, it is one push that LED lighting products should obtain certification from relevant certification authority such as Energy Star and DesignLights Consortium. Meanwhile, commercial LED lighting in America grows up, of which LED tube lights is the most demanding segment.

Otherwise, Japan has owned 9% of the entire market. Relatively speaking, lighting market in Japan is mature with many years’ development. LED lighting products for commercial application is popular and common. Still, the outdoor and industrial LED lighting segments have considerable potential to expand.

Emerging markets, including the Middle East, Latin America and Asia, shall take up 28% of the whole LED lighting market. In 2015 growth in these emerging markets are promising and potential as a result of population growth, favorable government policies and large LED lighting projects.
