The general lighting market includes lighting applications for residential, commercial, industrial, architectural, and outdoor purposes. The commercial and residential segments are the major drivers for general lighting market in China. This is mainly due to growing urbanization resulting in increased number of luxury malls, hotels, and other commercial complexes. The general lighting comes in two types: traditional and LED.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – General Lighting Market in China 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the General Lighting Market in China: Dongguan Kingsun Optoelectronic, GE, Koninklijke Philips, NVC Lighting Technology and OSRAM
Other Prominent Vendor in the market is: Opple Lighting
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “With a lighting trend shift toward domestic interiors, the Chinese market is likely to witness demand for personalized luminaires. Architectural lighting is used to emphasize important features of buildings or settings. For example, Philips recently introduced its latest range of motion-sensor lighting known as Hue, which can connect with certain thermostats and fire alarms to detect smoke and emit a warning signal. These are used in residential and commercial buildings. Vendors are also offering lighting options to decorate rooms designed for children.”
According to the report, China's housing market grew at a rate of 10% in the first quarter of 2015. The growth in sales was due to declining interest rates, as policy-easing measures led to the reduction of mortgage loan rates. This increased consumer interest in the real estate market and motivated them to purchase property. The government has also lowered the required payments for purchasing secondhand homes and removed certain restrictions on purchasing homes. As there is a correlation between the general lighting market in China and the residential real estate market, including construction investment, the lighting market will likely see steady growth.
Further, the report states that Chinese products are considered to be of inferior quality in other countries.
