The global lighting controls market size was valued at USD 17.03 billion in 2021 and is projected to grow from USD 18.61 billion in 2022 to USD 57.81 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 17.6%. Asia Pacific dominated the global market with a share of 52.67% in 2021.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with lighting controls experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -2.6% in 2020 as compared to 2019. A lighting controls system is a network of smart lighting system devices that helps control the operation of lighting systems and set up communication protocols between lights and switches within a particular area. It is a smart wired or wireless network of control systems that establishes better communication within many connected output and input lighting devices by using a centralized sensor and computing system. These devices are used to increase energy saving and maintain government code for energy saving. Additionally, the devices are also used to comply with building standards with energy conservation programs.

The global market has seen significant growth in the last decades, and it is expected to grow gradually during the forecast period. However, due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, sudden global lockdown in various countries was imposed, which caused shutdown of various manufacturing plants and disrupted supply chains of raw materials in several countries. Also, increasing digitization and advanced technology, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), in emerging countries is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.


Implementation of Lockdown Regulations and Labor Migration to Negatively Affect Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively disrupted global supply chains. However, the global market witnessed a moderate decline in 2020 and is expected to show a positive market growth in future. Moderate decline is attributed to the smart home equipment manufacturing factory shutdown across China, the U.S., and European countries, which challenged the transfer of finished goods around the world.

It is critical to point out any industry, which has not been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the coronavirus outbreak began in late 2019 in China, there have been a number of cases. Similar to other manufacturing sectors, the manufacturers of connected devices and smart home industry have been heavily dependent on Chinese companies as the major source of raw materials is China. Moreover, China was the first economy in the world mainly affected by the coronavirus and had all of its production units shut down.

However, increasing use of connected devices in emerging countries led to an increase in the installation of smart lighting systems in commercial and residential spaces such as smart homes, warehouses, retail stores, and factories. China, India, the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Germany, South Africa, and other countries are experiencing dynamic improvements in use of the Internet of Things (IoT) and connected devices. This factor has increased the installation of intelligent smart lighting systems. In addition, many governmental and non-governmental bodies such as Energy Conservation Society, International Energy Conservation Corporation, and others have proposed various laws to reduce lighting consumption and increase energy saving, which has driven the global market.

This will also help to improve environmental impact positively. Nowadays, most of the smart cities have been installing smart lighting and control systems or upgrading their existing retrofit systems with the help of IoT sensors. Such adoption of smart lighting and control systems in smart city projects is expected to drive the market growth globally.


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

The smart lighting controls system is becoming popular in the last few years rapidly. However, the initial cost of the single unit of the smart lighting and control system is much higher than the existing retrofit switches. Components, such as sensors, transmitters, and receivers, 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 smart lighting and control systems is not always affordable for residential customers, which is expected to hamper the global market.
