However, white LED fixtures have begun to capture a strong market position in selected applications such as consumer portable lighting (eg flashlights, headlamps) and solar landscape lighting , and more recently begun to be used on a limited basis in applications such as retail display Lighting, commercial and industrial lighting, and outdoor area lighting.
In 2008, white LED fixtures accounted for just over 50% of the total LED lighting fixture market. The penetration of white LED lighting fixtures into general illumination applications will accelerate when such fixtures offer quantifiable energy and cost savings relative to the use of conventional light sources .
In recent years, LED technology has made impressive performance gains, which in turn have improved the efficacy of LED lighting fixtures. In the forecast period 2008-2012 white LED fixtures will make gains in market share as the best commercial available high-performance white LEDs move beyond luminous efficacies of 100 lumens per watt.
Further improvements in designing fixtures that can optimize LED operation are expected to drive the growth in LED lighting fixture market. Both recessionary pressures and mass manufacturing of LED lighting fixtures will further reduce the cost of manufacturing.
As the LED lighting market grows beyond single color and color-changing applications into general illumination applications such as residential, commercial and off-grid applications, and ultimately into outdoor area applications, it is forecast to exceed $5 billion in 2012, corresponding to a CAGR Of 28% from 2008-2012.
By then it will be only be the beginning for the ultimate replacement of conventional light sources, including high-efficiency fluorescent and HID fixtures. However, many challenges face the LED industry to accomplish that goal, all of which are discussed in the report.
