Lighting manufacturers and technology companies are partnering to further advance Power over Ethernet lighting and increase building systems integration
A new report from Navigant Research analyzes the global market for Power over Ethernet (PoE) lighting, exploring market issues, codes and standards, and regional trends, while providing forecasts for PoE lighting system revenue, through 2025.
For a variety of industries, Ethernet has served as a reliable solution for transmitting data and low-voltage direct current (DC) power through one cable. In the lighting industry, the use of PoE also offers an advantage in energy efficiency by eliminating the regularly required alternating current (AC) to DC conversion within individual luminaires. Click to tweet: According to a new report from @NavigantRSRCH, global revenue for PoE lighting is expected to grow from an estimated $35.8 million in 2016 to $419.9 million in 2025.
“PoE lighting utilizes a trusted technology that, while new to the lighting industry, has experienced proven success in other applications from phone systems to cameras,” says Krystal Maxwell, research associate with Navigant Research. “By adding Ethernet to the lighting equation, companies are expanding the technology and opening the door to increased benefits in connected lighting systems.”
While PoE’s success has not yet materialized for the lighting sector as it has in other industries, a number of market players support the technology’s potential. According to the report, technology companies and lighting manufacturers have begun partnering to further advance PoE lighting offerings and increase the integration of building systems.
The report, Power over Ethernet Lighting, examines the global market for PoE lighting. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including drivers and barriers, codes and standards, and regional trends, related to PoE lighting. Global forecasts for PoE lighting system revenue, segmented by building type and region, extend through 2025. The report also examines the key technologies related to PoE lighting, such as LEDs, networked lighting systems, and DC power, as well as the competitive landscape. An Executive Summary of the report is available for free download on the Navigant Research website.
