Lighting Equipment Manufacturing

Brief Excerpt from Industry Overview Chapter:

Companies in this industry manufacture electric light bulbs and tubes, as well as lighting fixtures, lamp shades, and other components and parts. Major companies include Acuity Brands, Hubbell, and TCP Lighting (all based in the US), as well as OSRAM (Germany), Signify (Netherlands), and Zumbotel Group (Austria).


Demand depends primarily on residential, industrial, and commercial construction activity. Profitability depends on efficient operations. Large companies have advantages in purchasing power, manufacturing volume, and distribution efficiencies. Small companies compete by offering specialized products and superior customer service in regional markets. The US industry is concentrated: the largest 50 companies account for about 70% of revenue.


Major product categories are commercial-and institutional-type electric lighting fixtures (about 35% of industry revenue), outdoor lighting equipment (more than 10%), electrical, communication, and lighting system products (about 20%), and residential-type and industrial-type electric lighting fixtures (both account for 6%). Lighting fixtures consist of metal, glass, and plastic products in various decorative styles. Lamp bulbs consist primarily of incandescent, fluorescent, light-emitting diode (LED), and three types of high-intensity discharge (HID) bulbs: metal halide, sodium, and mercury vapor.
