The advent of smart home technologies is changing consumer interactions with lighting in their homes. Voice-activated platforms, such as Amazon Echo and Google Home, along with other connected lighting technologies, are demonstrating new use cases in applications that range from security and home automation, to health and wellness and elderly care. According to a new report from Navigant Research, global residential connected lighting revenue is expected to grow from $644.3 million in 2017 to more than $1.9 billion in 2026.
“We are starting to see smarter lighting products enter the market as the competition grows, with large incumbents vying for market share and smaller startups offering unique point solutions,” says Paige Leuschner, research analyst with Navigant Research. “Though the market is nascent, it shows strong potential for growth as smart home adoption increases and use cases for connected lighting become more apparent.”
In the past couple of years, companies such as Lutron that have never been active in the residential sector have become key players in response to the potential opportunity of the residential connected lighting market, according to the report. Aside from increasing adoption of smart home technology and new use cases, market players are also entering this space to take advantage of new regulations and codes that may require decreased energy consumption and the use of daylighting—both of which can be achieved through the use of connected light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
