Light plays a very vital role in every sector. Nowadays, lighting technology is so important in daily life that nowadays it is helping in the production of plants, artificially. According to the European Commission, lighting holds 15% - 18% of electricity consumption, globally. Furthermore, over the past few decades, the lighting industry has experienced continuous technology transformation.

This technology transformation allows light manufacturing companies to develop new and innovative products. For instance, LEDs are the new technology, which has been adopted by light manufacturing companies for the past decade. Also, scientists have discovered the usage of LEDs in growing plants. Additionally, scientists say that LED light plays an important role and an essential product in plant growth and development.

LEDs will hold the largest market share in the global lighting industry, owing to their multiple beneficial features. Moreover, the overall market will grow moderately in the coming future. This moderate growth is attributed to the less adoption of traditional lamps as compared with CFLs and LEDs. Moreover, light manufacturing companies are more focused on increasing their market share by producing and providing LEDs to their customers.
