10-Year Market Forecast

Market Research Study – Consultant Service: Description        

Directly managed from our regional office in Lima, Peru this report provides estimates and forecasts, based on market research study work performed by ElectroniCast Consultants.

The LED-based lighting covered in this study is used in fixtures in stationary/fixed locations (non-vehicle or non-portable) General Lighting applications; the lighting (lamps and PCB/printed circuit boards with driver), which are used in new fixtures or retrofitting/ replacement of existing (installed-based) lighting.

General Lighting Definition – lighting that is used to provide the main illumination of an area. The ElectroniCast definition of General Lighting also includes directional and supplementary lighting.

LEDs are used in both functional and decorative light fixtures, with an advantage of energy savings. Compared to incandescent lighting, LED-based solid-state lighting (SSL) delivers visible light with reduced heat. In addition, its solid-state nature provides for greater resistance to shock, vibration, and wear, thereby significantly increasing its lifespan.

LED Level Quantified in the ElectroniCast Study Below, are four levels (or “food chain”) pertaining to the LED marketplace.  For the purposes of this ElectroniCast study, we quantify and provide a market forecast for “Level 3”

Level 1 - The chip or die
Level 2 - The LED component (packaged LED) or other components

Level 3 – Lamps, complete LED-equipped PCB, or Module

Level 4 – Luminaire (light fixture/lamp holder/including lamp/s)

Market Forecast, by Product Type

This market forecast is presented for eight (8) major product categories.  

Total Consumption: LED Lighting at Summary-Level

  • Decorative Types: Candle, Fancy Round; including filament-type style

  • OLED or Laser-based lighting
Market Research Methodology

Market analysis and technology forecasting are complex tasks. Any predictions of the shape and trends of technology and economic movement start from the notion that the germ of what will be important tomorrow is present, although smaller or larger or in a different form, in our environment today. However, taking as a basis for a prediction the assumptions of current, conventional belief creates a set of preconceived notions that can lead to serious mistakes. ElectroniCast, instead, looks to the basic driving forces.

Information Base

During the market research process, ElectroniCast analysts performed interviews with authoritative and representative individuals in the LED and lighting industry, plus – R&D and factory/manufacturing, from the standpoint of both suppliers and users of LED and lighting illumination products. The interviews were conducted principally with:

·        Architectural lighting Designers/Installers concerns, Engineers, marketing personnel and management at manufacturers of LED lighting and related equipment, as well as other lighting technologies.

·        Design group leaders, engineers, marketing personnel and market planners at major users and potential users of LEDs and lighting

·        Other industry experts, including those focused on standards activities, trade associations, government and investments. 

The interviews covered issues of technology, R&D support, pricing, contract size, reliability, documentation, installation/maintenance crafts, standards, supplier competition and other topics.

Bottom-up Methodology     ElectroniCast forecasts, as illustrated in the forecast data structure, are developed initially at the lowest detail level, then summed to successively higher levels. The background market research study focuses on the amount of each type of product used in each application in the base year (2017), and the prices paid at the first transaction from the manufacturer. This forms the base year data.

ElectroniCast analysts then forecast the growth rates in component quantity use in each application, along with price trends, based on competitive, economic and technology forecast trends, and apply these to derive long term forecasts at the lowest application levels. The usage growth rate forecasts depend heavily on analysis of overall end user trends toward equipment usage and economic payback.

Illumination: Fibre optic lighting in signs and displays

By Stephen Montgomery

Fibre optics may be best-known to the public for their broad use in residential Internet and other telecommunications services, as they can transmit more data across longer distances than copper- or wire-based cabling. They are also increasingly being implemented for lighting applications, however, including sign and display illumination.

An optical fibre is a thin and flexible tube, made of either glass or plastic, that can carry light from one end to the other. It may be installed inside a cable jacket or externally from a cable (i.e. ‘individually’).

Fibre optic lighting has proven practical for a wide range of industrial, automotive, military, aerospace, medical and scientific uses, but has also found its way into store display cases, swimming pools and spas, landscaping, offices, casinos, holiday decorations, toys and consumer products. Indeed, research shows the overall value of the worldwide market for fibre optic lighting grew to US$312 million in 2016.

While the use of fibre optics in signage is still in its infancy, this could change quickly. The process of assembling, testing and manufacturing fibre optic lighting products already allows for mass production capabilities. Over the next few years, the average prices of these products will be driven lower by these production efficiencies, as well as by quality controls, higher yields, greater competition (in terms of both markets and technologies), improvements in sales, marketing and distribution and other factors. As such, the technology will move on from the ‘development’ and ‘introduction’ stages in the sign industry and into the ‘growth’ stage of its product life cycle (PLC).
