Growing number of Streets and Roadways and public places drive the LED lights in APAC.

  • In terms of value share in 2023, the streets and roadways subsegment accounted for a majority of the share, followed by public places and others. Asia-Pacific is a vast region, and the majority of the countries are developing nations, due to which streets and roadways account for a majority of the transport connectivity with the region. The economic growth is majorly dependent upon this sector. Redevelopment of existing road networks and investment in expanding them are carried out at an increasing pace in the region. The LED lighting companies are collaborating with country-level governments to replace traditional street lights with LED lights. The Thai government plans to replace old lights in Bangkok with over 400,000 LED street lights, saving 70% of energy.
  • In terms of volume share in 2023, the public places subsegment accounted for most of the share, followed by streets, roadways, and others. With increasing population, purchasing power, and travel and tourism, the need for parking lots has also increased over the years. The three largest markets, South Korea, China, and Japan, achieved store growth of 8.3%, 2.9%, and 2.3%, respectively. The trend in the coffee shop market is expected to increase in the alpha and beta generations, leading to massive LED demand. Further construction and development of airports are expected to increase the market demand. Examples include an airport development project in Vietnam worth USD 14.5 billion, one of the most expensive greenfield airports in the world, and a new USD 13.5 billion project funded by the conglomerate San Miguel Corporation (SMC). For example, the Manila International Airport (NMIA) is under construction.
Asia Pacific Outdoor LED Lighting Market

Government programs to promote LED lights undertaken in India, China, Japan, and other APAC countries are expected to boost the outdoor LED lighting market

  • In terms of value share, in 2022, Japan accounted for the majority of the market share, followed by India, China, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific. The Japanese government has replaced incandescent bulbs with energy-efficient LED lighting systems to address the problem of power shortages. The expansion of the Japanese consumer electronics sector has also increased the use of LED lighting in smartphones, feature phones, digital video cameras, and other electronic devices. These lights are also used in the automotive, general lighting, traffic lights and signs, medical, academic, and forensic industries. The Japanese government offers various incentives and subsidy programs to promote the introduction of LED lighting in the country. Rapid advances in LED technology have led manufacturers to introduce innovative lighting products with increased efficiency and durability.
  • In terms of volume share, in 2022, Japan accounted for the majority of the market share, followed by India, China, and the Rest of Asia-Pacific. The UJALA program has transformed the LED lighting industry in India. Demand for LED lamps increased 50-fold in the three years after 2014, but retail market prices (for lamps sold outside UJALA) fell by a third. This price drop was due to economies of scale achieved by a significant increase in demand from the UJALA program in parallel with the global trend of falling LED chip prices. The production capacity of LED lamps in India has also increased significantly, with around 176 registered manufacturing facilities.
  • In the Rest of Asia-Pacific, countries are gaining momentum in the adoption of LED lights in their indoor and outdoor segments. Thus, with rising adoption, LED penetration in Asia-Pacific is expected to increase over the forecast period.
