Enterprise LED Lighting: Commercial and Industrial Market Trends, Opportunities & Leading Companies
For more information on the latest edition of Groom Energy's Enterprise LED report, click here.
Since general illumination light emitting diodes (LEDs) were first introduced in 1997, the industry envisioned that LEDs with projected performance increases could someday completely replace traditional lighting systems. Today that possibility is very realistic thanks to the acceleration in LED performance over the past few years and a wave of new commercial, industrial and institutional LED fixtures that have hit the market. The US market for commercial and industrial LED lighting, for example, is forecasted to see $330 million of revenue in 2010, with potential to grow next year at over 30%, surpassing $1 billion in annual revenues by 2014. This growth will come from three emerging trends in the industry:
- Recent LED chip performance advancements, which allow more cost effective designs for replacing existing lighting systems
- Newly introduced utility energy efficiency financial incentives for converting to these LED-based systems
- Increased interest from building owners in applying sustainably-oriented lighting retrofits that save money in operation
