SUMMARY OF REPORT CONTENTS
LED lighting is a rapidly growing sector, representing a threat to more
traditional products. Product development in the LED market will continue to
offer this sector greater differentiation and result in increasing share in
the medium to longer term.
In 2011, the LED lighting market was estimated to be worth around £105
million at manufacturers' selling prices (MSP). This is a developing market
and is largely reliant on new installations and resulting in rapid growth. The
LED lighting market is expected to continue to see rapid growth as the
technology becomes more widely accepted in the mainstream. In the long term,
price decreases will impact on value but in the next 5 years, increased sales
volumes should outweigh this issue. Trading remains positive for the LED
lighting market, with higher volumes of housing required and increasingly
sophisticated, sustainable, efficient task orientated lighting being used
across all markets.
Energy efficiency continues to play an important role in the market, driven by
legislative changes and increasing fuel bills. The government remains
committed to promoting the use of energy efficient products, promoting use
within public sector projects and through the introduction of energy
conservation and monitoring legislation.
The non domestic sector dominates the market by value. This sector has been
quicker to take up LED technology as it is more focused on long term running
costs, whilst domestic users are likely to be put off by the initial cost.
In 2011, the LED lighting market was dominated by sales of luminaires, which
accounted for 90% of the market, with replacement lamps accounting for a
further 8% and lighting controls the remaining 2%. Many current LED luminaires
and modules are integrated. These products are not easily replaced as they
require mechanical fasteners to couple the LED to the heat sink. This is
changing as more replacement lamps and modules are being brought onto the
market but means the traditional product split is becoming more difficult to
The supply of LED lighting is relatively fragmented, although the leading 5
companies are thought to account for 90% of current market value. Distribution
is dominated by direct sales as munfacturers continue to introduce the
technology to ever widening applications.
