Smart Street Lighting

LEDs, Communications Equipment, and Network Management Software
for Roadway and Highway Lighting: Global Market Analysis and Forecasts

Falling prices for light-emitting diode (LED) street lights have spurred a global transition from older lamp technologies to the newer, more efficient, and more controllable lamp technology. Prices for LED street lighting have come down to the point where payback periods are becoming reasonable with or without subsidies. Residents in cities worldwide are appreciating the improved nighttime visibility provided by the whiter light of LED street lights. Meanwhile, city managers are enjoying the cost savings that come from the resulting reduction in both energy consumption and maintenance costs.

Although the LED transition is in large part driving the adoption of new networked street light systems, most LED upgrades continue to be completed without any additional controls beyond simple photocells. After years of pilot control projects, however, a growing number of large-scale networked systems have proven that networked systems can work and can provide real benefits. These smart street lighting systems can provide substantial energy savings and a host of non-energy benefits. Yet, as LED prices continue to erode and the long lifespan of LED lamps results in fewer replacements, overall revenue from street lighting will begin to fall. Navigant Research forecasts that global street lighting revenue will decline from $2.5 billion in 2014 to $2.3 billion in 2023.

This Navigant Research report analyzes the global market for roadway and highway lighting. The study provides an analysis of the market issues, including drivers and trends, barriers, and ownership models, associated with lamps, luminaires, and lighting controls in these street lighting applications. Global market forecasts for unit sales and revenue, segmented by region, application, and equipment and construction type, extend through 2023. The report also examines the key codes, standards, and technologies related to street lighting, as well as the competitive landscape.
