A recent Leaderboard Report from Navigant Research examines the strategy and execution of 15 key influencers in the commercial building market for Internet of Things (IoT) lighting, with Philips Lighting, Acuity Brands, Eaton, and OSRAM ranked as the leading companies.
IoT lighting solutions bring connectivity to devices that were previously not connected and provide data (where data was not available) through the connection. The vendor ecosystem for this market is growing as additional company types, including those that do not manufacture their own luminaires, enter the market to focus on sensors and controls or platforms.
“The Leaders within this report have separated themselves from the competition through a broad solution portfolio, strong partner relationships, and advanced technology development,” says Krystal Maxwell, research analyst at Navigant Research. “Contenders and Challengers in this market will need to improve in various ways, from expanding their solution offerings to increasing sales to differentiating themselves through unique features and applications.”
During the next decade, Navigant Research expects to see strong global growth for IoT lighting solutions thanks to technology advancements and customer demand for increased data and building insight.
