A new report from Navigant Research examines the global market for networked and non-networked intelligent lighting controls within commercial buildings, providing forecasts for unit shipments and revenue, through 2026.
Lighting controls in commercial buildings continue to advance in sophistication and overall deployments. The growth of light-emitting diodes (LEDs), in particular, play a key role in this market, offering improved controllability over legacy lighting technologies, as well as increased energy savings. According to the report, revenue from networked lighting control systems across all building types globally is expected to grow at a 14.3 percent compound annual growth rate between 2017 and 2026.
“The commercial lighting sector is experiencing unprecedented change with the continued growth of LEDs,” says Krystal Maxwell, research analyst with Navigant Research. “On top of that, networked controls not only increase energy savings, but also provide greater insight and analytics into lighting and other building automation systems for commercial buildings.”
Helping to drive market growth further, building codes and standards are also propelling the lighting controls industry, according to the report. Regional codes, such as California’s Title 24, are encouraging adoption as the state works to reduce energy use and incorporate lighting-specific requirements into its Energy Efficiency Standards.
The report, Market Data: Intelligent Lighting Controls, analyzes the global market for intelligent lighting controls, both networked and non-networked, within commercial buildings. The report briefly covers the market issues, including key drivers and barriers, related to the lighting controls market for commercial buildings. Global market forecasts for unit shipments and revenue, segmented by equipment type, building type, construction type, and region, extend through 2026. The study examines sensors, multi-feature controls, relays, switches, ballasts, drivers, network control gear, and network services, with a specific focus on networked lighting controls.
