Solid state lighting (SSL) is a type of lighting that uses semiconductor light-emitting diodes (LEDs), organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), or polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs) instead of electrical filaments, plasma (used in arc lamps such as fluorescent lamps), or gas as sources of illumination. Over the forecast period, the global solid state lighting market is expected to develop significantly. The global solid state lighting market is growing due to increased demand for environmentally friendly and energy-saving lighting solutions. Illumination sector technological advancements seek to provide more lighting output with reduced power usage. Growing consumer awareness about energy efficient LED lights, high growth potential in applications such as automotive, medical, and outdoor lighting due to the use of solid state lighting, and emerging smart city technology are among the major factors driving the growth of the global solid state lighting market. Solid state lighting is utilized in a wide range of applications because of its various benefits, including extended life, higher light output quality, inherent safety, compact size, and great durability. As a result, over the forecast period, these factors are likely to enhance the global solid state lighting market. For instance, the net sales of Acuity Brands, a commercial and industrial lighting manufacturer, peaked in the fiscal year of 2018. In the 2020 fiscal year, Acuity Brands generated net sales around US$ 3.3 billion.
The global solid state lighting market is expected to grow as several lighting firms paying attention towards improvement of white LED performance and pricing, LED-based fixture designs will become more efficient, and solid-state lighting products will get a greater share of the mainstream general illumination market. The use of high-brightness (HB) LEDs for lighting applications is gaining traction, especially as HB LED performance (lumen output, efficiency) has improved substantially in the last year, allowing for a larger range of lighting applications. The term "solid-state lighting" has become a widely recognized terminology for the use of LEDs in lighting. Solid state luminaries are very energy-efficient and cost-effective, the solid state lighting industry is primarily driven by energy savings. Furthermore, the global solid state lighting market is anticipated to grow due to significant recent advantages of this form of lighting, an increase in governmental measures to help sustainable development, and a rise in population knowledge about the impacts of lighting on human health. Moreover, the concept of smart lighting and the development of technologies to improve the efficiency of solid state luminaries present attractive growth prospects. Technology investment in the solid state lighting industry are required to drive market growth. As growing consumer awareness about energy efficient LED lights, high growth potential in applications such as automotive, medical, and outdoor lighting due to the use of solid state lighting, and emerging smart city technology are among the major factors driving the growth of the global solid state lighting market.
Global Solid State Lighting Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic
Globally, most of the countries are affected by COVID-19 and most of them have announced lockdown. COVID-19 has a significant impact on the supply-side as well as the demand side of the manufacturing industry. Companies are quickly evaluating impacts on three fronts: supply chain, market demand, and workforce. COVID-19 crisis has impacted nearly every business, and its long-term consequences are expected to have an influence on industry growth during the forecast period. The COVID-19 outbreak had a negative impact on the solid state lighting source business, with manufacturing activities being temporarily halted throughout key manufacturing centers, and supply chain resulting in a significant output slowdown. In addition to affecting manufacturing, the ongoing pandemic has impacted customer demand for display-integrated products, which has likely been increased by the lockdown conflict.
