Global Smart Lighting Market Trends:
The global smart lighting market is witnessing various trends, among them increasing urban populations around the world is a major trend expected to boost the market growth in the near future. As the urbanization is increasing globally, the concerns regarding reliable, secure and affordable energy supply, environmental effects such as climate change, greenhouse gas emissions and loss of biodiversity are increasing. This in turn is leading to the growing adoption of efficient lighting sources in residential and commercial cities, and this trend is likely to continue in the global smart lighting market over the forecast period.
Furthermore, growing technological developments such as IoT, Cloud computing and Bluetooth is another trend in the global smart lighting market. Due to advent of such technologies, smart homes is now a reality. The number of features implemented in smart homes continues to grow in common households, which boosts the demand for smart LED lighting systems that can be linked to other devices and can be remotely controlled. Thus, smart lighting systems that are powered by LED lightings is trending in the market, which is likely to support the market growth.
Global Smart Lighting Market Restraints:
Factors such as high cost of smart lighting are expected to hamper growth of the global smart lighting market over the forecast period. The overall cost of owing smart lighting comprises the indirect and direct expenses incurring throughout the life cycle of using or owing a smart lighting product. This includes the equipment, installation, operation, deployment, production, maintenance, and upgrading cost. Moreover, the initial cost of smart lighting is higher than traditional lighting, which makes low-budget end-users and residential owners skeptical about the use of smart lighting, and make them opt for conventional energy-saving lighting. Thus, this factor is likely to impede growth of the market.
Compatibility concerns of smart lighting is another factor anticipated to restrain growth of the global smart lighting market over the forecast period. Smart lighting sometimes can be incompatible with traditional infrastructures as well as fittings, as the form factor and circuitry of these lighting is different. This further require replacement of switches. Likewise, all the fixtures of smart lighting related to existing or conventional fittings cannot always be used with all the lighting sources. Moreover, use of LED bulb in an enclosed housing may fail to effectively dissipate the heat, which could affect the lifespan of the LED lamp. Thus, these compatibility issues of smart lighting are limiting the market growth.
