Shipments of Lighting Controls for Residential Applications Are Expected to Total Nearly 1.1 Billion through 2023, According to Navigant Research

Benefits of LEDs are projected to beat out alternatives as incandescent bulbs are phased out, report finds

BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A recent report from Navigant Research analyzes the global market for residential energy-efficient lighting and lighting controls, including global market forecasts for light-emitting diodes (LEDs), incandescent, halogen, and fluorescent lighting through 2023.


The market for residential energy-efficient lighting is in the midst of a transformation, particularly as prices for LEDs decrease and new lighting technologies emerge. Many residential applications center on LEDs that are connected, allowing for the remote control of and interaction between devices. Click to tweet: According to a recent report from Navigant Research, worldwide shipments of residential lighting controls are expected to total nearly 1.1 billion worldwide from 2014 through 2023.

"The home energy management and home automation movements are ramping up, and smart lighting plays an important role in both," says Jesse Foote, senior research analyst with Navigant Research. "Residential consumers are finding that connected lighting is a convenient way to manage energy and to also tie in elements of safety, security, and functionality - sometimes with just a couple swipes of a smartphone."

LEDs are expected to gain additional traction as many countries start to phase out or ban incandescent bulbs. Though alternatives, such as compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), tend to be less expensive, LEDs present fewer health concerns and offer better performance, according to the report.

The report, "Residential Energy Efficient Lighting and Lighting Controls," analyzes the global market for residential energy efficient lighting and lighting controls. It focuses on LED lamps and luminaires while also forecasting sales for three additional lamp technologies - incandescent, halogen, and fluorescent - as well as a number of control devices, including occupancy sensors, photosensors, timers, dimmers, lighting-only networks, and home energy management systems. Global market forecasts for unit shipments and revenue, segmented by region, lamp type, product type, and building type, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key technologies related to residential energy efficient lighting and lighting controls, as well as the competitive landscape.
