SBI has released an in-depth analysis of the $16.5 billion U.S. lighting fixture and equipment industry. This study covers all sectors of this growing and profitable market including residential, commercial, industrial, and outdoor lighting fixtures, as well as portable electric lamps and electric and nonelectric lighting equipment using their own power source. Separate chapters cover each of these sectors providing data for over 100 types of lighting fixtures and equipment. Each chapter includes data on U.S. shipments and imports, and provides data in units and dollars. Shipment and import data is further segmented by incandescent, fluorescent, and high intensity discharge types. These chapters provide readers with information needed to uncover growing sales opportunities. Shipment and import data is also segmented by major end-use market. Data is segmented by new building construction, residential repair and remodeling markets, consumer purchases, street and highway construction, and business and government replacement markets. Data trends can be used in developing new products for the strongest growing user markets. Consumer spending on lighting fixtures and lamps are further investigated by demographic characteristic. Dollar purchases and the likelihood to purchase are analyzed by income, age, size, and region of U.S. households and other demographic characteristics.
Marketers should target purchasing groups most likely to spend on high-end lamps and fixtures. In addition, SBI analyzed factors affecting demand such as residential and nonresidential construction data, interest rates, and energy costs. Currently, demand is benefiting from lower interest rates and a heightened interest in energy conservation. Data on distribution channels such as wholesaler sales, major retailer sales, and export shipments are provided as well .Our analysis points to the growing importance of home centers and mass merchandisers.

Scope And Methodology
The SBI Market Profile on Lighting Fixtures and Equipment Industry is a guide to sales and profit-oriented opportunities in this growing and profitable sector of the U.S. economy. This comprehensive database covers U.S. shipments, imports, end-use markets and factors affecting domestic demand, distribution and demographics, exports, the cost structure of U.S. plants, and the competitive environment. In addition, major U.S. manufacturers and marketers are profiled to review competitor strengths and strategies.
The U.S. market supply is calculated from U.S. Department of Commerce statistics by collecting data on domestic plant shipments and adding imports (Section 1). This data was provided for the total industry and each industry sector. The market supply is provided on current and real (factoring out price increases) bases. Price trends were collected from the Bureau of Labor Statistics Producer Price Index. In addition, the industry’s plant profit margins are compared to the U.S. manufacturing average. Section and report findings are provided in the Executive Summary to assist the reader in developing strategies to outperform the industry averages.
Sections 2 to 6 conduct a similar analysis for each of the industry’s important market sectors — residential lighting fixtures, commercial and industrial lighting fixtures, portable electric lamps, outdoor lighting fixtures, and flashlights and related products and nonelectric lighting fixtures and lamps. Data trends include U.S. shipments for over one hundred separate product categories among all industry sectors. Shipments are for all domestic manufacturers, whether plants are owned by U.S.- or foreign-based companies, and whether or not plants specialize (50.0% or more of total facility revenues) in lighting fixtures and equipment. U.S. import data is derived from U.S. Customs records. Import data is provided by fixture material and by major country of origin.
Based on data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis’s Input-Output Structure of the United States, SBI estimated lighting fixture and equipment purchases by major end-use market (Section 7). SBI correlated these data trends with factors affecting domestic demand in order to estimate and forecast the data provided in the previous sections. This section analyzes data on U.S. residential and nonresidential construction activity, residential remodeling markets, street and highway and other nonfacility construction spending, and other factors affecting U.S. demand.
U.S. lighting fixture and equipment consumer demographics and distribution are discussed in Sections 8 and 9. A survey by the Simmons Market Research Bureau conducted in the spring of 2000 provides data on household purchases of table and floor lamps and indoor and outdoor fixtures. Spending is segmented by sex, age, race, income, household size, education and occupation, type of residence, and region. HomeWorld Business provides data on the top 25 U.S. lighting product retailers, and the U.S. Department of Commerce provides data on lighting fixture sales of domestic electrical apparatus and equipment wholesalers. The distribution section also provides data on U.S. exports and the Canadian lighting fixture and equipment market.
In addition, SBI supplies data on the cost structure and profitability of U.S. plants specializing in the sale of lighting fixtures and equipment by industry sector (Section 10). U.S. Department of Commerce data covering these plants are supplemented with individual company sales data in order to calculate top company market shares (Section 11). Company sales statistics are compiled as part of an exhaustive effort to provide competitor intelligence (Section 12). Annual reports, databases, and trade journals were searched for growth- and profit-oriented strategies.
Action-oriented executives are urged to use this comprehensive statistical database and competitor information to uncover growing product lines, end-use markets, distribution channels, and profitable operating strategies. Executives are urged to compute their own company’s market share and compare their company’s operating ratios to the industry averages as part of this process.
