Various government initiatives for promoting energy efficiency and energy conservation, rising number of smart cities in the region, and greater life span of LED lights are the major factors contributing to the growth of the LED lighting market in the APAC region.

New York City, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/07/2019 -- Increasing government initiatives aimed at promoting energy-efficient lighting systems, growing number of smart city projects, and longevity of LED lights are driving the growth of the sector. Due to various benefits of LED lights, such as low energy requirement, electricity expenditure reduction capabilities, and better build, their demand from businesses has increased. The APAC LED lighting market was valued at $27.5 billion in 2018 and is predicted to witness a CAGR of 13.0% in the forecast period (2019–2024).

Based on the product type, the LED lighting market in APAC is categorized into lamps and luminaires. Out of these, in 2018, luminaries were the largest revenue contributor in the market, accounting for over 75.0% share, owing to the increasing demand for LED lighting fixtures from the construction industry. Furthermore, with surging government initiatives toward the adoption of LED lighting in developing countries, such as China, India, and Australia, the LED luminaires market is predicted to advance in the region. For instance, in 2015, the Indian government launched the Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs for All (UJALA) scheme to promote energy-efficient lighting.

On the basis of application, outdoor and indoor are the categories of the APAC LED lighting market. Of these, in 2018, the indoor category held the larger share (0ver 85.0%) in the market, which is attributed to the increasing government investments on smart city projects. For instance, the construction of 321,567 affordable houses was sanctioned in 2018 under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (PMAY) launched by the Government of India in 2015. Hence, due to the increasing number construction projects, the demand for LED indoor lighting is escalating.

In 2018, among China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia, and rest of APAC, China held the largest revenue share in the market, owing to its growing number of urban lighting projects for buildings, roads and railways, rising government spending on bettering the lighting system in shopping malls, offices, and hospitals, and surging demand for energy-efficient and eco-friendly lighting products. For instance, in February 2019, the Government of China announced that to improve the rail network in the country, nearly $120 billion would be invested in construction.

With the help of energy-efficient lighting, the greenhouse gas emission and thermal pollution can be minimized. Government initiatives toward checking carbon emissions are playing an important part in supporting the growth of the APAC LED lighting market. In 2015, the Government of India launched the Street Light National Programme (SLNP) to encourage energy efficiency. SLNP is aimed at replacing 35 million conventional lights with LED lights. The same year, the Indian government also launched the Smart Cities Mission to develop 100 cities, benefited by all modern facilities.
