•LEDs have huge potential in the global lighting market.
•Outdoor and architectural applications are dominated by direct sales through tendering processes. The residential segment is dominated by retailers, while wholesalers dominate the professional lighting market (office, hospitality, retail, and industrial).
•Strategic involvement in government-initiated technical and market projects gives companies better brand visibility and recall among customers, architects, and installers.
•Smart lighting systems, light management systems, and color control of LED light that can affect end-user mood, are taking the market into a new dimension. In this context, it is essential to understand different investment opportunities in the LED industry and to analyze the dynamics of funding options.
•Leasing and maintenance of lighting solutions, and financing projects, will help companies overcome end-user reservations about the high initial investment required.
•Fragmentation of the LED industry implies that M&As are likely, which makes it imperative to understand M&A drivers.

LED Industry Analysis

Capital costs for installing energy-efficient designs are high.
Financing and maintenance of energy-efficient LED solutions will be key competitive factors.
Holistic, end-to-end solution providers are likely to win major projects.
Brand visibility, pricing, and product warranty are decisive factors in the mass consumer market.
There is a need for greater R&D support from larger companies that would rather invest in expanding their customer base.
Residential energy audits are rare, and customers often do not understand the energy savings from adoption of LEDs.
Strong ties with channel partners, architects, and electrical vendors will go a long way in promoting the LED industry.
