Global Specialty Lighting Market: Overview

With the penetration of specialty lighting in the end-use sector such as aviation, medical, and entertainment the specialty lighting market has gained traction in recent years. LED lights have long replaced the incandescent light bulbs to be used for widespread applications across the commercial and residential sector. The shift in consumer preference from CFLs to LED technology has unlocked numerous growth opportunities for the global specialty lighting market.

Changes in the street lighting projects such as the adoption of smart lighting and energy-efficient lighting have further pushed the envelope for the specialty lighting market. For instance, Belo Horizonte, one of the major cities in Brazil has upgraded 182,000 streetlights with LEDs which helped them cut down the electricity cost by 50%. Such modernization projects aimed at enhancing the energy-efficiency and the advancements in the lighting technology compelled Transparency Market Research to conduct exhaustive research on the global specialty lighting market.

In its latest study, TMR Research talks about the evolution of lighting technology and highlights the key growth opportunities for the stakeholders. It also takes into account the factors shaping the global specialty lighting market’s growth throughout the forecast period.

Global Specialty Lighting Market: Notable Developments and Competitive Analysis

Specialty lighting has now become the need of the day as governments across the world have set strict laws for air and surface disinfection. This has also led to the development of new germicidal lamps and UV disinfection systems. Mentioned below are a few new developments in the global specialty lighting market:

  • Ushio Opto Semiconductors, Inc. has recently developed a broadband LED that produces an output of 160 mW over a bandwidth that covers range from visible light to infrared light. This light finds extensive applications in the food and medicine industry.
  • OSRAM has entered in a partnership with Scout to introduce LED embedded schoolbags. OSRAM had earlier provided its services to the manufacturers of safety vests and has now extended its support to Steinmann Group.
  • Cree, Inc. has announced the launch of next gen XLamp XP-E2 Photo Red (660 nm) and Far Red (730 nm) LEDs. These LEDs have enhanced the efficiency of LED luminaires and reduced the payback periods. This affordability and optimized lighting provided by this product make it an ideal solution for horticulture applications.
