Solid state technology is a developing lighting technology that sources its illumination functionality from existing LED (Light Emitting Diode), PLED (Polymer Light Emitting Diode), OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode), and other similar technologies. Solid state lighting system includes large number of semiconductors, as semiconductors  converts electricity into light. Solid state lighting devices consumes less energy, and has a longer life span. Solid state lighting devices are available in a variety of sizes to meet  demands and requirements of a wide range of consumers. Due to its excellent characteristics and global demand, the global solid state lighting market is expected to witness growth. The market is expected to witness growth, owing to improved light quality, smaller and more flexible light, and weatherproof design combined with inherent safety. Solid state lighting emits no harmful chemicals or ultraviolet radiation, and thus, it is safe for the environment.

Global Solid State Lighting Market- Drivers

Favorable government initiatives and frameworks to promote adoption of energy efficient lighting products

Policy initiatives of various governments to promote the usage of energy efficient lighting, smart city projects, and rising demand from the automotive industry are some of the factors that are expected to drive the market growth. For in January 2020, the Government of India announced the 5 year completion of LED Street Lighting National Programme (SLNP) and Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All (UJALA), country’s zero subsidiary program. Through these initiatives, the country deployed approximately 10.3 million smart LED streetlights, enabling savings of approximately 6.97 billion kWh of energy per year. Considering the data, the demand for LED lights is anticipated to grow over the forecast period. Rising product innovation resulting in higher light output, energy efficiency, and product development is expected to drive the market growth. Increasing usage of LEDs in medical devices and biological implants, due to its mobility, light weight, thinness, and low power consumption. The development of white LEDs with software controlled brightness and color, and rising demand for flexible LEDs in smartphones, are expected to drive the market growth.

Global Solid State Lighting Market- Opportunities

Improved operational efficiency of LED solid state lighting products

Solid state lighting  saves more energy as compared to traditional lighting solutions. For instance, according to the data available on the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the operating cost of 40W Standard Incandescent bulb is US$ 5.34 per year compared to US$ 0.67 per year of 5W LED bulb. Rising  energy costs is expected to boost demand for solid state lighting, in order to reduce the energy bills and carbon footprint. Lifespan of solid state lighting solutions is longer as compared to that of traditional lighting solutions, and this offer significant cost savings to businesses and consumers.

Global Solid State Lighting Market- Restraints

High initial cost of LEDs compared to ICLs and CFLs

High cost of solid state lighting is expected to hamper the market growth. For instance, according to the statistics from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), 10W LED bulb costs approximately US$ 13 compared to US$ 0.50 of 60W standard incandescent bulb. Furthermore, inefficiency of solid state lighting in heat-sensitive applications in industrial manufacturing processes is also expected to hinder the market growth. Rising demand for displays in medical equipment such as ventilators and respirators is expected to boost demand for solid state lighting in the near future.

Global Solid State Lighting Market- COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 pandemic has had a mixed impact on the global solid state lighting market. The pandemic further slowed the economic activity and a decline in consumer demand for lighting products. The pandemic caused disruptions in the supply chain, with many manufacturers and suppliers reported difficulties in sourcing raw materials and components due to travel restrictions. Moreover, the pandemic resulted in a decline in consumer spending on non-essential items. This led to a decline in sales for lighting products, including solid state lighting products. While the pandemic had a negative impact on the global solid state lighting market in the short term, the long-term outlook remains positive, as the demand for energy efficient and sustainable lighting solutions is anticipated to continue to grow.
