High Intensity Discharge (HID) ballast is an electrical device, which is used to control the voltage and arc current of high intensity discharge lamps during their operation. The HID ballast is a complex system consisting several components, (such as CANBUS modules, which are input wires with modules to smooth the power signal coming in, and provide extra resistance to the vehicle's circuit) which are tailored to accomplish specific tasks. The main controller circuit of the ballast has two main functions. Firstly, it inverts the power into an AC signal and controls the voltage output as the bulb operates and does this by sensing resistance in the bulb, thousand times per second. Secondly, it adjusts the output so that it conforms to the requirement of the application. A HID ballast is a power controller used in lighting systems. They are classified into a number of categories such as reactor ballast, lag ballast, regulator ballast, and auto regulator ballast.

Increasing Use of HID Ballast in Car Headlamps for Better Illumination Efficiency is One of the Key Driving Factors of The Global HID Ballast Market

Increasing adoption of HID ballast in the automotive sector is driving growth of the HID ballast market. HID ballast is used in car headlamps in order to increase their illumination efficiency. Moreover, increasing adoption and sales of energy efficient lighting systems for enhanced outdoor brightness in areas such as stadiums and parking places is positively contributing to growth of the HID ballast market.  Stringent regulations such as the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, is fuelling demand for energy-efficient light sources such as LEDs. Most of the legislations focus mainly on two bases, i.e., controlling the energy distribution balance (supply – demand balance) and ensuring compliance with global environmental emission norms. This is expected to boost adoption of low-energy light sources. These regulations are expected to aid the growth of the HID ballast market during the forecast period.

In September, 2016, a revolutionary ban was imposed in China against incandescent light bulbs. Europe is further accelerating the switchover to more ecological lighting sources by extending its regulations to ban low-voltage halogen lamps, and the government of India is taking initiatives to provide LED bulbs at subsidized rates. These factors are expected to aid in growth of the marker.

Global HID Ballast Market: Regional Insights

On the basis of geography, the global HID ballast market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East, and Africa. North America accounted for the largest share of the HID ballast market in 2017 and it is expected to witness further growth during the forecast period. This is owing to increase in investments made by governments of countries in the region to replace conventional lighting systems with energy efficient lighting systems According to a report released by the US Energy Information Administration in July 2018, the government extended a 30% tax credit for infrastructure developers who used energy efficient electrical systems in their constructions. Furthermore, Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. This is owing to growing awareness regarding the use of HID ballast in automotive, residential, and industrial sectors to increase energy efficiency. The United Nations Economic & Social Cooperation for Asia Pacific’s Report released in 2017 stated that Asia Pacific adopted energy-efficient lighting systems in all new commercial and residential buildings. According to a white paper released by the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) in 2017, the Latin America market for HID ballast is also expected to showcase growth due to increasing investment to replace tunnel and streetlights with energy efficient lights. Moreover, according to a press release by the Center for Industrial Studies released in November 2016, the increasing demand for decorative lighting in Latin America is expected to aid in growth of the HID ballast market.
