The global LED lighting market size was valued at USD 77.79 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 85.02 billion in 2022 to USD 264.08 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 17.6% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with light emitting diode lighting experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on the analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -2.6% in 2020 as compared to 2019.

Light Emitting Diode is a solid-state light source that can convert electrical energy directly into light energy. These devices are often used in lamps to replace incandescent light sources. This is expected to be one of the most energy-efficient and rapidly growing lighting technologies in the global market. This type of diodes last longer, can operate efficiently, and can give better light quality than traditional lighting technologies. This type of diode is expected to curtail the sales in the conventional lighting market of Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) and Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp (CCFL) due to its advanced features. It's a cost-effective solution for all lighting and other applications, such as backlit widescreen and non-backlit (OLED) displays.

In addition to the aforementioned financial advantages, the initial cost of light emitting diode is very high, which limits its initial acceptability. However, due to the longer lifespan of these diodes, their overall cost valued in accordance with initial price offering, serving lifespan, and power consumption was found to be very low compared to CFLs. Consumers will realize the benefits of longer light emitting diode life and increase the use of these diode products such as LEDs and recessed lights. Growth in display backlight applications, reduction in the cost of light emitting diodes, longer lifespan, and high efficiency of these diodes are the key factors that are expected to drive the LED lighting market growth.


Shut Down of Manufacturing Facilities and Disruptions in Supply Chains Impacted Market Growth Negatively

The COVID-19 pandemic has evolved rapidly and its impact was being felt globally in supply chains. This factor had a negative effect on economic activities around the world. However, the global market is expected to see a moderate decline in 2020 and show a positive growth going forward due to the closures of manufacturing units of light emitting diode manufacturers in China, the United States, and European countries. This challenged the transfer of industrial production around the world. Since the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak in December 2019 in China, several cases have been reported. Similar to other manufacturing sectors, light emitting diode manufacturers were heavily dependent on Chinese companies, as their main source of raw materials. China is the first economy in the world to be mainly affected by the coronavirus due to which all of the production units had to close.

However, increasing use of energy-efficient lighting systems in emerging countries led to an increase in the installation of light emitting diodes in commercial and residential spaces, such as smart homes, warehouses, retail stores, and factories. China, India, Saudi Arabia, Germany, and South Africa are experiencing dynamic improvement in the use of such diode lamps and luminaries that has increased the installation of these diode systems. In addition, many governmental and non-governmental bodies such as the Energy Conservation Society, International Energy Conservation Corporation, and others have defined various laws to reduce lighting consumption and increase energy saving, which has driven the global market.

Growing Use of Energy-efficient Lighting Solutions to Fuel Market Progress

Light emitting diode is also an energy-efficient lighting system, which is anticipated to get influenced by surging trends of eco-friendly lighting systems. Energy saving or energy conservation is one of the most trending concerns across the globe and adoption of these systems has significantly contributed to the energy saving and energy conservation mission. Various facility managers and business owners became more conscious about energy saving and they established numerous organizational goals for energy saving. To achieve these goals, facility managers have been rapidly implementing light emitting diode systems in their organizations. This type of diode is an energy-efficient lighting technology and it has the potential to fundamentally transform the future of lighting in the world. Residential light emitting diode lights, which are ENERGY STAR rated products, consume as low as 75% less energy and their lifecycle is increased by 25% more than traditional incandescent lamps. Increasing use of LEDs has the potential to heavily improve energy conservation in the U.S. Majority of installation of lighting systems are using light emitting diode technology due to the benefits of these diode systems, which is expected to show positive trends in the market. Further, increasing use of building management systems in commercial buildings is expected to boost the growth of the global market.


Highly Efficient Specification and Multiple Application of LED to Drive the Market Growth

Most of the emerging countries are shifting their focus toward energy conservation and eco-friendly lighting solutions. As part of this energy conservation agenda, most of the countries are actively installing these diode systems on a large scale. Over the past decade, many customers have switched from CFL to light emitting diode bulbs. Lighting can consume up to 20% or 25% of overall energy costs, so shifting to LEDs can save money and reduce monthly energy bills. Also, light emitting diode lighting has various applications such as backlight of switches of electronic devices and internal lighting of light emitting diode screens. LEDs are lightweight and can be easily fitted in various home decorations for enhanced aesthetics representation. It is also used in the camera flash, signal lights, and aviation lights. Such benefits of these diode lighting systems are expected to drive the market globally.


High Initial and Deployment Costs of LED Lighting System to Restrain Market Growth

Light emitting diode systems have been rapidly becoming popular since the last few years. However, the initial cost of a single unit of this type of diode system is much higher than the existing CFL lighting system. The components, such as diodes, transmitters, and capacitors, which are used in this system are expensive, which will directly impact the initial retail cost of the overall system. Furthermore, the replacement of existing systems and installation of new light emitting diode lights is not affordable for residential customers, which will also hamper the global market.
