Get To Know These LED Market Trends

It is the education of the public, about the benefits of LEDs and how this new technology has surpassed other lighting options in comparison, that was the aim of most LED lighting companies and the whole LED lighting market in general.

After several years passed and we can see major milestones that are accomplished by the LED industry, with recognition of its importance by the general public, and thus reaching around 30 billion dollars of market all over the world. In our modern times today, LED lighting is facing a different challenge and that is to be able to create market trends in the lighting business.

There are now several generic fixtures and lights in the LED lighting market such as bulbs, panels and tubes, that have become saturated with more manufacturers joining the LED bandwagon, and this leads to a price war in the industry. So, in order for a LED manufacturer to standout in the LED industry, it is now considering a shift into the design perspective of the LED products.

The year 2017 would bring in signs that LED manufacturers would be developing customized products for specific industries that will bring them more profits, and these are in the areas of interior decor, hotels, bars, parking lots, outdoor areas and others.

One customization option that we can expect to be develop this year is the use of innovative designs, thus allowing different manufacturers in the LED industry to distinguish one from the other. Through this customization of LED fixtures, a LED company will be able to set its own pricing for their own product designs.

Manufacturers are well aware that many things have still to be done to make successful innovations that would spell success and profitability of the LED lighting business. There is a couple of LED manufacturers who took the challenge by the horns leading them to develop the TVilight, which is smart lighting start up using LED systems.

A testament to a bullish invention is in the city of Eindhoven,that in order to provide enough lighting for the commuters, they installed a smart LED system that can determine how busy a street is. Busy pathways can be illuminated through this system and can be switched off too once the pathways are detected to be empty. The success of this TVilight system has led to a possible integration of the smart LED system all over countries in Europe.

Integrating the LED systems in the internet world is also being accepted as a challenge and manufacturers are starting to study this possibility. Applications in the LED system for the home automation system will create a breakthrough in the domestic market.

Further in the competing world, the LED community has led manufacturers to concentrate on LED applicatons where the non-visible light spectrum is involved.
