The global power over ethernet (POE) LED lighting market size was at 192.3 Million Units in 2018 and is expected to reach 544.8 Million Units by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 14.1% during the forecast period.

More commercial buildings are moving towards advanced lighting systems, which would support to maintain energy usage and required less Ethernet. Among some advanced lighting system such as enterprise network and LED Lighting  system, deployment of power over ethernet  LED lighting is gaining more popular among end-users. POE LED Lighting operates on direct current (DC) power this utilized low voltage category cabling system, instead of requirement of traditional electrical AC wiring system. POE lighting requires maintenance energy, energy end-users, and installed with another lighting system at low-cost deployment.

Power over ethernet (PoE) is a LAN switching technology. PoE technology helps to transmit data and low-voltage direct current (DC) power from power sourcing equipment (PSE), over ethernet cable. These Ethernet cables help to connect powered devices, including IP phones, cameras, point-of-sale machines, access control card readers, LED luminaires, and other industrial and building automation applications.
