Energy-efficient technologies are expected to make up over 75% of the U.S. lighting market by 2020, according to a new report from Pike Research, Boulder, Colo., which describes the key technology and market trends that are driving the use of LED and other high-efficiency lighting in the commercial, industrial, and outdoor stationary sectors. The report analyzes the performance requirements for a number of lighting applications and assesses the suitability of various current and future lighting technologies for these applications. It also includes a ten-year forecast for lamp and luminaire sales in the United States across ten different lighting technology categories in seven major building types and application sectors.
Key questions addressed in the report:
- What is the size of the U.S. commercial lamp and luminaire market through 2020?
- Which lighting technologies will see sales growth or declines over that period?
- Which building types and lighting applications will be the most significant targets for various lighting technologies?
- What are the market trends driving the adoption of energy efficiency in general, and energy-efficient lighting in particular, in commercial markets?
- What are the lighting requirements of applications that determine the suitability of a lighting technology?
- What factors are currently influencing the adoption of LED lighting and how will this progress over time?
- What are some of the key market players, including governments, doing to influence the development and adoption of more efficient lighting technologies?
