Who says incandescent lamps are dead?

CFLs lost market share to incandescent lamps for the second consecutive quarter, decreasing to 22.0%, according to the latest figures from NEMA's lamp indices for incandescent and compact fluorescent lamps. Moreover, the share of CFLs has remained fairly consistent for the last three years indicating consumer demand has hit a plateau that could persist into the foreseeable future absent a stronger pick-up in U.S. economic growth or re-emerging concerns over energy costs.

NEMA also says the decline in CFL sales slowed to 4.3% in the last quarter of 2009 on a year-over-year basis versus a decline of 17.5% for the previous quarter.
