Speaking Out: LEDs: The Time is Now

LED usage in commercial lighting is expected to grow at an annual rate of 39 percent for the next three years, putting LED commercial lighting sales at $4.5 billion a year by 2015 (from a report published by the Strategies in Light conference). The overall market for LED products for applications such as backlighting for televisions, laptops and mobile devices is declining due to the saturation of the TV market, which will cause a flood of LED components into the commercial lighting market bringing lower prices and increasing adoption rates. In 2010, the global LED market — all products included — increased by 93 percent (Strategies in Light report). Such impressive growth rates for products using LED technology have brought major global attention from electronics manufacturers eager to enter large markets that previously had barriers to entry, such as the U.S. commercial and residential construction markets.
