Global Lighting-as-a-Service Market: Snapshot
The rise of circular economy is driving business model innovation across all industries, with a key spin-off being the emergence of ‘something-as-a-service’ business model. The lighting-as-a-service (LaaS) is fast emerging as an innovative service delivery model in the lighting industry. The transition to LaaS is mainly motivated by numerous short- and long-term gains, increased cost savings, enhanced energy efficiency, and better control of resources. In addition, a large number of LaaS providers and end users can harness the capabilities of a wide array of digital analytics, with the IoT at the forefront. The lighting-as-a-service model is fast gaining traction across businesses who want to unleash the value proposition of the LED technology. Several end-use organizations, particularly government facilities, restaurants, and hospitals, seek to garner substantial cost and energy savings brought about by using LED lights. The LaaS model helps them get over expensive retrofits and avoid large upfront capital investment since they usually pay monthly subscription fees to the provider throughout the contract.
Driven by reduction in maintenance cost and a better control of lighting, restaurants and hospitals are increasingly shifting from traditional fluorescent lighting to LED lighting for all spaces. The LaaS model helps them ease installation of fixtures, negotiate monthly rates, and increase energy savings over time. Typically, LaaS providers audit the energy usage from lighting and demand a percentage of the energy cost savings for the upfront investment they make in retrofitting. Once the contract matures, buildings can own the LED lights, which further leads to sustainable benefit enjoyed by the end users. During the contract, all technological upgrades are managed by the LaaS provider, and any significant advancement may warrant for new contract; however, the end users do not need to invest any capital upfront, thereby enabling them to enjoy efficient lighting continuously.
Lighting as a Service Market: Overview
The global lighting as a service market is displaying significant growth due to the increasing demand for energy efficient lighting systems and support from several governments for phasing out traditional lighting systems with energy efficient ones.
Lighting as a service (LaaS) refers to a service delivery model wherein light service is provided based on a subscription model rather than a one-time installation model. The basis of the idea is that manufactures install, maintain, and operate customer’s lighting systems and does not have any upfront investment for the customer.
The global lighting as a service market can be analyzed by end-user, installation, component, and region. By end-user, the market can be segmented into commercial, industrial, and municipal.
