The hospitality sector is making the transition toward energy-efficient LED lighting sources to reduce carbon footprint and utility cost. Increasing energy operating cost is the bane of most hotels’ existence. This cost is mostly associated with lighting in the hospitality sector. The interior of the Boise Wyndham hotel with 51,000-ft² area consumes 286,025 kWh of energy. The high energy cost compelled the hotel authorities to make the transition to energy-efficient ED lighting. After the LED retrofit. the hotel authorities witnessed that the energy consumption dropped to 71,456 kWh.
Further, the report states that higher import duties will be a challenge for the market. High import duties on lighting fixtures including LED products and components are hindering the growth of the global lighting market in the hospitality sector. The import duty rate for importing lighting fixtures into Brazil is 18%. This duty is accompanied by some other duties and taxes such as the airport fee, storage fee, handling fee, and declaration fee. This import duty rate is high as compared to the other BRIC nations and thus, impacts the final price of lighting product for the end-consumers in Brazil, as the main vendors are international players and import product from other countries.
