It is managed by third parties more precisely by specialized service providers and may include, light design, financing, installation, maintenance, and other services. Furthermore, the LaaS model has become more common in commercial and citywide installations of LED lights, specifically in retrofitting buildings and outdoor facilities, with the prior aim of reducing installation costs. Moreover, light vendors have used the LaaS strategy in selling value-added services, such as internet-connected lighting and energy management.

Increase in adoption of lighting as a service products and cost & energy saving properties of lighting as a service are factors driving the growth of the lighting as a service market. Moreover, the market is majorly driven by the escalating demand for energy-efficient lighting systems across the globe. This can be attributed to the paradigm shift of the masses towards sustainable lighting solutions from conventional lighting. Moreover, continual product innovations and launch of new products are providing an impetus to the LaaS market growth. Also, rapid utilization of light-emitting diode (LED) as an energy-efficient lighting technology is creating a positive outlook for the market. Therefore, growing adoption of lighting-as-a-service products is driving the growth of the market. However, lack of familiarity with new technology and lighting control products limits the growth of the market. On the contrary, few initiatives for energy efficiency and energy conservation taken by government through Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) initiated the standards & labeling programme for equipment and appliances to provide the consumer with an informed choice about the energy saving is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the market in the upcoming years.
