Due in part to increases in LED lighting adoption, conservation initiatives, changing energy efficiency codes, new construction project increases, and wireless technology benefits, the market for lighting control systems in the U.S. continues to grow at a considerable pace. Researchers estimate that the market, including lighting controls, devices, systems, and gears, will reach well over $1 billion by the end of 2013.
The state of California has been at the forefront of the growth, setting the bar for an established national standard. Title 24, which will be enacted by January 2014, will require automatic daylight harvesting controls to be added to many commercial buildings—a code that other states are sure to enforce. Title 24 will also mandate occupancy sensing functionality for many applications driving the market further as end-users tend to not adopt control technology improvement unless mandated.
Value-chain participants have had to adapt to evolving market dynamics as lighting control system specifications, designs, sales, and installations have become increasingly complex. The shift has led to a number of end-users looking for alternatives sales channels—a move that has subsequently made value-chain participants adjust their business models. For instance, many electrical distributors including Graybar, Gexpro, and Rexel have now established sales channels through energy audit teams in order to specifically target the retrofit marketplace.
