  Networked Lighting Controls Will Surpass $5.3 Billion in Annual Revenue by
  2020, Forecasts Navigant Research

BOULDER, Colo. -- August 29, 2013

The market for lighting controls in commercial buildings has entered a period
of dramatic transformation, as the demand for both local controls, such as
occupancy sensors and photosensors, and networked controls, rises and the
adoption rate of light-emitting diode (LED) lighting systems begins to climb
as well. According to a new report from Navigant Research, worldwide revenue
from networked lighting controls will grow from $1.7 billion annually in 2013
to more than $5.3 billion by 2020.

“Building owners and managers, who are accustomed to the idea of centrally
monitoring and managing their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning
systems, are beginning to expect the same level of control from lighting
systems,” says Jesse Foote, research analyst with Navigant Research. “To meet
this growing demand, a number of different types of vendors – including
pure-play startup companies and traditional lighting vendors – are moving
aggressively into the lighting controls market.”

As falling prices for LEDs drive up adoption rates of LED lamps, the adoption
of lighting controls will also accelerate, the study concludes. The
semiconductor nature of LEDs makes them inherently controllable, with a high
degree of dimmability, easy integration of controls with drivers, and
instantaneous startup. In fact, many LED lamps are being sold with built-in
controllability, whether or not there are plans to make use of those features.

The report, “Intelligent Lighting Controls for Commercial Buildings”, analyzes
the global market for lighting controls for commercial buildings, including
both new construction and retrofits. Sensors, ballasts, drivers, switches,
relays, controllers, and communications technologies are examined, with a
specific focus on networked lighting controls. The report details the market
drivers for these technologies, as well as barriers to adoption, and includes
profiles of select industry players. Market forecasts for unit shipments and
revenue for each type of equipment, segmented by region and building type,
extend through 2020. Forecasts are also broken out for control equipment in
buildings with networked lighting controls, as well as for wireless lighting
controls and LED drivers. An Executive Summary of the report is available for
