Market Overview

Focus on Intelligent and Energy-efficient Luminaires to Boost the European Lighting Equipment Markets

Although the European luminaires market is well established and matured due to the construction boom in early-2000s, the subsequent construction slump and prolonged economic downturn affected the market significantly. However, a greater emphasis on energy savings in the lighting sector and a new legislation that phases out inefficient lighting will help the European lighting equipments market to bounce back to positive growth by 2010. "The European lighting equipments market has seen a shift towards energy efficient technology and greater intelligence within luminaires in recent years as more consumers aim for savings and further integration with building and lighting controls," says the analyst of this research.

The last ten years have witnessed a change in the staid market structure as manufacturers and consumers have scrambled for technology that is more efficient. A string of new legislation mandating greater energy efficiency in buildings has emphasised the role of lighting and high energy prices. Therefore, energy efficiency and a move towards intelligent luminaries have become the major objectives for both the manufacturers and end users, resulting in a greater level of integration between controls and luminaires over the last few years. A shift in lamp type preference has also caused a stir in the portfolios of luminaire manufacturers.

Advanced Controllers to Play a Larger Role in Lighting and Building Automation

While new lighting legislation and mandates have effectively signalled a new phase in luminaire production, it is not a simple redesign for manufacturers. Most new technologies require special ventilation and heat dissipation means and better adoption of controls to continue functioning at optimum levels. Manufacturers are progressing towards controllers that are more intelligent. "As building control technologies become more intelligent, advanced controllers are playing a larger role in lighting and building automation," explains the analyst. "The advent of the new energy efficient legislation has also resulted in a large number of consumers trying to incorporate building control systems into their lighting and building management systems."

Manufacturers are developing luminaires that have a good interaction with controllers, with some even integrating simple controllers with their luminaries. While this trend is still catching on in the residential sector, it is becoming common in outdoor and commercial lighting. For now, the high-end luminaires market is a crucial growth avenue for manufacturers seeking to provide greater intelligence in systems.
