Industrial LED Market Outlook - 2026
The global industrial LED market size was valued at $5.57 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach $20.16 billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of 16.8% from 2019 to 2026. The light emitted by the filament present inside an incandescent light bulb is a result of the electrical energy getting converted into heat energy, which eventually is converted into light energy. A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source that converts electrical energy directly into light energy. These devices are often used in lamps as a replacement of incandescent light sources.
Lighting consumes approximately 15% of total global power consumption. Moreover, lights produce around 5% of global carbon emission. Thus, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has released certain guidelines on energy-saving lighting solutions to reduce carbon emissions. With rapid urbanization and rapid economic growth, the lighting industry is expected to grow exponentially over the next two decades, resulting in high demand for LED based lighting. Thus, need for LED-based lighting for effective energy saving and cost saving is expected to drive the growth of the industrial LED market in the coming years.
Modern LED lamps are equipped with new LED filaments placed in high-quality glass design. Lamps are available in different socket sizes, shapes, wattages, or light temperatures. LED lamp lasts between 30,000 and 50,000 hours. Researcher predicts that replacing traditional lighting with LED lamps across all the industry verticals would minimize more than 50% of energy consumption, thus reducing around 735 million tons of carbon emission per year.
North America is one of the highest revenue contributors to the global industrial LED market, owing to advancements in technologies, innovations, and investments in respective industry.
