Market Overview

The emergency lighting market is expected to witness a CAGR of 7.22%, during the forecast period (2021 - 2026). The increasing demand for energy-efficient lighting systems across the commercial, residential, and industrial sectors is driving the growth of low power consumption bulbs in the emergency lighting system.

  • The growing emphasis on strict fire and safety regulations by governments across the world is driving the market. For instance, the regulations, such as Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Code of Federal Regulations, NFPA 70 - National Electric Code, NFPA 101 - Life Safety Code, International Fire Code, NFPA 1997 5-9.3, and Standard Fire Prevention Code 1999, are some of the regulations for testing and maintaining ‘Exit and Emergency Lighting’ systems across the world.
  • The growing number of construction projects across the world is promoting the growth prospect for emergency lighting. According to CSCEC, the newly added housing construction area in China increased by over 43%, from 2015 to 2018.
  • The government regulations for industrial emergency lighting are driving the growth of the market. For instance, Larson Electronics launched a vast line of portable LED lighting systems for use in industrial and combustible environments. These explosion-proof LED units can be used in Class I, II, and III flammable environments, hazardous locations, and confined spaces.

Key Market Trends

LEDs Are Expected to Witness Significant Growth

  • The increasing government policies, such as ban in the usage of incandescent light, and the energy-efficient and cost-saving nature of LEDs, are increasing the penetration of LEDs. Moreover, LEDs are highly controllable, as the integrity of LEDs can vary based on the requirements when integrated with a driver.
  • For instance, in April 2018, the Council of Australian Government's Energy Ministers announced to replace halogen lamps with LED lamps, to improve energy efficiency.
  • Also, the Indian government's initiative of 'AHO', i.e., Automatic Headlamp On, is a safety measure used in two-wheelers where the headlights are kept on throughout the day, which makes the spotting of two-wheelers easy.
  • LEDs in the industrial environment can help in saving up to 70%. As LEDs are highly controllable, the integration of LEDs with the security industry is expected to have a significant impact on the emergency lighting market.

Asia-Pacific Region is Expected to Register a Faster Growth

  • The Asia-Pacific region is expected to have the highest growth rate, over the forecast period. The governments in the Asia-pacific countries are actively promoting the adoption of emergency lighting, which is leading to the growth of the market.
  • Various government flagship programs, including Housing for All, Atal Mission for Urban Rejuvenation and Transformation (AMRUT), Make in India, and Power for All, are expected to drive the growth of emergency lighting in the region.
  • The rapid urbanization in developing countries, such as India, China, Japan, and South Korea, is also leading to an increase in construction. A significant infrastructure spending is witnessed in Australia, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Myanmar, and Vietnam.
