NEW YORK, June 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The increasing demand for energy-saving and environmentally-friendly lighting technologies is driving the growth of the global SSL and other energy-efficient lighting systems market. The advancement in optoelectronics has revolutionized the lighting market and led to the introduction of highly efficient technologies such as LED and OLED. Environmental concerns have an impact on the market for conventional lighting technologies such as incandescent lamps, halogens, and fluorescent lighting. Therefore, there is a need for low-power-consuming lighting systems, which are environmentally friendly, and can provide illumination for a significantly long time. SSL technologies, like LED and OLED, can satisfy all these needs and provide greater illumination for a wide range of lighting applications.
FL is currently the most popular technology in the market for lighting applications as it is more energy-efficient than incandescent lamps and halogens, and generates minimal heat. However, this technology uses mercury vapor; which is poisonous. Hence, broken and used fluorescent lamps can be an environmental hazard if not disposed properly. This has become a major concern for governments and environmentalists all over the world. SSL is being promoted as the best alternative to all conventional lighting technologies as it overcomes all these drawbacks.
SSL is an emerging technology with a high growth potential across several lighting applications including general lighting, automotive lighting, and medical lighting, among other applications. LEDs were initially used for signage, traffic lights, and backlighting. With further research and development in the field of optoelectronics and the introduction of LEDs capable of emitting white light, more market opportunities have been created for SSL, particularly in general lighting and automotive lighting. High-brightness LEDs, which can give a sense of natural light, are ideal for illumination of homes, office spaces, streets, and other commercial establishments.
