The global hazardous location LED lighting market was valued at USD 309.81 million in 2017, and is expected to reach USD 585.19 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 11.17%, over the forecast period of 2018-2023. The scope of the report is limited to solutions offered by various players, including providers of cart light, flash light, and flood light LEDs.
Hazardous environments are high-risk places where potentially explosive materials or harmful substances that are susceptible to reaction with external environment, are manufactured or processed. The importance of installing safe and efficient lighting solutions in these environments cannot be ignored, because they are usually located in very remote, inaccessible locations. With 318 deaths in the manufacturing industry and 89 deaths in the mining and quarrying industry in the United States alone in 2016, according to the US Department of Labor, there is a critical need to provide appropriate lighting solutions in these areas. The market for lighting hazardous locations is driven by the emergence of LED lights as a viable alternative to traditional lighting applications, owing to their sturdiness, reliability, and non-toxic nature. LED-based applications offer optimal efficiency, as they do not contain any flammable substances and offer higher cost effectiveness and lighting performance, making them a preferred choice in a wide array of industries, such as mills, pharmaceuticals, fireworks agencies, etc.
Stringent Regulations Demanding the Stoppage of Other Harmful Lightings and Promoting LED Use
Changes in regulatory standards favoring the use of energy-efficient lighting applications in all major end-user industries, has been one of the major drivers for growth in the overall LED industry, and particularly in the industrial LED market, where hazardous location lighting accounts for a considerable portion of the market share. Governments and public organizations across the world are bracing down on the use of incandescent lamps, which have been deemed redundant, due to high energy consumption and low performance. India, the second most populated country in the world, has a strong economic growth prospect and a significant market size. In October 2014, the Indian government issued carbon emission reduction policies, which advocated people to use LED bulbs instead of approximately 750 million incandescent bulbs available in the market.
The United States has been at the forefront of LED adoption, ably supported by the introduction of reforms, such as Energy Star Program, which mandates lighting applications to adhere to industry standards and test procedures. Safety standards for lighting applications manufactured for use in hazardous standards, such as IEC, NEC, and other regional regulations, have also been major contributors to the increased demand for LED solutions, although lighting solution providers have been impacted by constant changes in regulations. These regulatory standards have been successful in creating greater awareness for LED solutions and have also provided a guide for new consumers, by compelling LED-based solution providers to manufacture optimal quality products.
Oil, Gas, and Petroleum accounted for the Maximum Share
The processes of oil, gas, and petrochemical refineries can create explosive and flammable conditions. Refineries, being spread across big open areas, require a vast lighting network, which results in excessive cost of energy consumption and regular maintenance. Refineries across the world are using traditional lighting sources that generally deal with maintenance issues, as the light sources generally react with the gases around and they form a different compound, which degrades the physical quality of the lighting sources, forcing the companies to change these lights at a regular interval. For example, incandescent light and high-pressure sodium gets easily compounded, due to surrounding reactive gases, thus creating maintenance issues for the company. Thus, petrochemical refineries are increasingly adopting vapor-proof LED lighting solutions, which are isolated from any sort of reaction. Europe and Middle East & Africa (EMEA) is expected to boost growth in the market, driven using hazardous location LED lights in the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries, at a faster growth rate compared to the Americas.
Europe Accounted for the Largest Share in the Market
Due to the presence of some of the major oil & gas companies, in addition to a robust power sector, Europe has an immense potential for hazardous location LED lights. Major Players: GE LIGHTING, INTERTEK, COOPER INDUSTRIES, EMERSON INDUSTRIAL AUTOMATION, THOMAS & BETTS CORPORATION, DIALIGHT PLC, NEMALUX LED LIGHTING, FEDERAL SIGNAL CORPORATION, RAB LIGHTING, AND LDPI INC., amongst others.
