development of LED intelligent lighting market

Date: 2018-2-28

The development of LED intelligent lighting market and thechanging trend of communication technology


After several years of low price competition and industryintegration, the LED lighting industry has entered a mature period. The priceof the product has been greatly improved, the penetration of the applicationmarket has been improved, and the traditional application market is graduallysaturated. The advantages and competitiveness of enterprises are graduallyshifting from enterprise scale and product cost to product and technicalability, and the added value of products is becoming more and more important.  The rise of the Internet of things, drivingthe LED lighting to a small network of high value digital lighting. Theintelligent system can collect users, environment and other information throughvarious sensors, analyze the data, and adjust the equipment. Integration ofpersonalized, people-oriented intelligent lighting is becoming the focus of futureindustrial development. In 2017, with the popularity of technology development,product maturity, manufacturers' active promotion and smart lighting concept,the global smart lighting market entered a high-speed development stage. Themarket size was close to 4 billion 600 million US dollars, and the annualgrowth rate reached 95%. The market is expected to continue to grow in the nextfew years, up to $13 billion 400 million in global smart lighting by 2020.



Intelligent lighting as the access port of the intelligentcity has a congenital advantage, and the big manufacturers are actively layout  Intelligent lighting can not only gain ahigher profit margin, but also an excellent access point for smart cities. Withthe continuous development of cities, there are more and more challenges interms of energy consumption and infrastructure. By 2030, the proportion ofglobal urban population will reach 60%, and urban energy consumption willaccount for 75% of the total energy consumption of the world. Lighting willaccount for nearly 40% of the total energy consumption of the city. As animportant part of smart city, smart lighting has inherent advantages in thenumber of access points of Internet of things. Governments are also advocatingthe development of smart city. The lighting giants including PHILPS, OSRAM andso on, also have the layout of the market in 2015, PHILPS lighting in thewisdom of the Internet for road lighting pilot project in Losangeles, thedeployment of PHILPS CityTouch intelligent road lighting management system inLosangeles in 2017, PHILPS lighting will City Touch flex intelligent roadlighting system into China, and networking with the China Telecom for a newgeneration of things (NB - IoT) technology and Tianyi cloud services combined,including access to city emergency system, traffic management system, securitymonitoring system, a variety of smart city applications, to accelerate theconstruction of smart city Chinese. In January 2018, OSRAM launched a newintelligent city central management platform, SymphoCityTM, an open platformsystem integrating software and hardware. In addition to managing lighting,multi-functional integrated intelligent city central management platform canalso realize comprehensive management of urban security, environment, energyand communication. This will help urban managers improve their efficiency, reducecosts and promote the development of smart cities. In addition, Chinesemanufacturers, Feile audio limited and Vast sun technology also vigorouslypromote the wisdom of lights, is currently undertaking a major Chinesegovernment related projects, Feile audio now with more than 20 city smart citysigned a strategic cooperation agreement, and plans to build a total investmentvolume of about 4 billion yuan of "intelligent cengong" project withthe government in cengong County of Guizhou province.  The continuous change of communicationtechnology and the trend of diversified development  Networking and smart lighting marketdevelopment to the current stage, the emergence of DALI, ZigBee, Bluetooth,LoRa, Sigfox, Wi Fi, NBIoT, Zwave, EnOcean and other kinds of communicationtechnology.  In the field of indoorlighting, although many wireless communication protocols can be applied, theDALI cable technology specially designed for lamps still occupies the highestmarket share. The system based on DALI protocol has distributed intelligentmodules, each module has digital control and digital communicationcapabilities, and addresses and lighting scene information are stored in thememory of each DALI module. The DALI module carries out the digitalcommunication, transmission instruction and state information through the DALIbus, and realizes the functions of the light switch, the dimming control, thesystem setting and so on.  The morestable and reliable system is the biggest advantage of wired controltechnology. But with the maturity of wireless technology, it will become themainstream control technology in the future. It is predicted that the marketshare of DALI will gradually shrink in the future, while ZigBee and Bluetoothwill take the leading position. ZigBee is the most common wirelesscommunication protocol for lamps and lanterns. Because of the long developmenttime and relatively mature technology, the network architecture of ZigBeeitself has advantages, in addition to more power saving. Take the Chinesemarket as an example, more and more Chinese manufacturers have joined theZigbee alliance, and the product has shifted from the past most of the overseasexport market to the domestic demand market.




The outdoor lighting part, ZigBee is also the most widelyused at the present stage. However, due to the short application distance,there are many limitations in the application of outdoor lighting. It isestimated that after 2017, the share of ZigBee in outdoor intelligent lightingmarket will slow down.  With the rise ofthe Internet of things, many low power wide area network (LPWAN), which isdesigned for low bandwidth, low power consumption, long distance and largenumber of connected applications, arises at the historic moment. By using thespectrum NBIoT, and the use of non authorized spectrum LoRa (Long Range) andSigfox as the mainstream. LPWAN's long distance communication capabilities cansupport large-scale Internet of things deployment, and avoid regular batteryreplacement and lower maintenance costs.





In several low power wide area networks, LoRa is earlier andmore open. It set up an industrial alliance in 2015, and is now the most widelyused in LPWAN. In 2016, the standard freeze NB IoT, due to the use ofauthorized spectrum, can avoid wireless interference, and has operator levelsecurity and quality assurance. Therefore, it has more competitive advantagesin the intelligent lighting scenarios with higher reliability and the fastestgrowth of market share. Generally speaking, the market of various low powerwide area networks is relatively scattered, and the market share is still low.It is expected that with the development of technology and the perfectfunction, the market concentration will be gradually improved.
