Navigant Research Leaderboard: IoT for Lighting

Assessment of Strategy and Execution for 15 Key Market Influencers

Navigant Research defines the Internet of Things (IoT) for lighting concept as adding value beyond illumination. IoT lighting solutions for commercial buildings bring connectivity to devices that were previously not connected and provide data (where data was not available) through the connection. Connectivity and communication can happen between devices within the lighting system and between lighting devices and non-lighting devices. Within lighting systems, such communication can be accomplished through lighting controls. Networked lighting controls achieve many of the aspects described in this definition of IoT lighting solutions.

Lighting controls, originally designed for dimming or daylighting, have shifted to more sophisticated controls that can provide space utilization, conference room management, increased employee productivity, and improved operational efficiency. This shift has expanded the vendor ecosystem for lighting controls in commercial buildings beyond lighting manufacturers and lighting control companies to include technology firms and startups. The evolution from an intelligent lighting system toward an IoT lighting system has occurred in large part because of the easy use of sensors as a host for IoT applications. This evolution has expanded the playing field to include many companies that do not manufacture their own luminaires but focus instead on the sensors and controls or platforms for an IoT lighting system.

This Navigant Research Leaderboard evaluates 15 vendors in the IoT lighting for commercial buildings market. These players are rated on nine criteria: vision; go-to market strategy; partners; technology; geographic reach; sales & marketing; solution performance; solution portfolio; and staying power.
