According to the relevant institutions of the "2011-2015 European Lighting Market Report", traditional European lighting manufacturers mostly use halogen lamps as the main light source. Now they are actively developing LED point light sources and working with local architects, designers and around the world. The distributor has established a close relationship with the European region and undertaken lighting projects. It is expected that the European LED spot light source market will grow to US $ 3.01 billion in 2012, which is an important market worth developing.
According to statistics, in European countries, the European LED spot light source market has exceeded 2.08 billion US dollars in 2011, due to the policy prohibiting high-wattage incandescent lamps in some European countries. At the same time, in the next few years, due to the EU's comprehensive ban on the sale of incandescent light bulbs in 2012, the market growth rate is expected to increase significantly. LEDinside estimates that European LED point light source lighting will reach 10 billion US dollars by 2015, and the compound annual growth rate for 2011-2015 is estimated to be about 38%.
The overall European lighting market is relatively mature and is more willing to pay higher amounts for lighting products. In the future, the European LED lighting market will continue to grow rapidly and will become a place where Asian and European LED point light source manufacturers compete. If you can obtain orders at European exhibitions and establish a reputation in the lighting product supply chain, then it will become a stable leader in the future point light source market.
The European lighting market has always led the popular culture of the global lighting market. Since the start of the biennial Milan International Lighting and Architectural Technology Exhibition in 1977, it has a history of more than 30 years and is arguably the most representative in the world. One of the light exhibitions. The Light + Building exhibition in Frankfurt was exhibited at the same time as the Milan Lighting Fair. Since it was first held in 1999, it has been difficult to find. The exhibition has rapidly developed into one of the industry's most influential international exhibitions. In addition, related lighting exhibitions will be held throughout Europe each year, demonstrating the importance Europe attaches to the lighting industry. The European population currently has a population of about 380 million, accounting for 13-14% of the global population. The lighting market has been affected by the large environmental economy and population. According to statistics, from 2008 to 2010 European lighting demand also accounted for more than 20% of the global lighting market. LED point light source manufacturers in the European market use direct lighting and indirect lighting to create the overall atmosphere of the indoor lighting industry. From the perspective of enterprise access, among the three major LED point light source lighting manufacturers, Philips, Singular, and Osram are also very important in the European market. This shows that Europe has a pivotal position in the global lighting market.
European LED point light sources are developing rapidly. In addition to European environmental protection and energy saving concepts, another important factor is the impact of high electricity prices in Europe. High electricity prices are an important driving force for LED lighting. Using 7-watt LED point light source, it can replace the traditional 40-watt incandescent bulb. For example, if you calculate 8 hours per day, it will be saved once a month (31 days). If calculated through the EU-27 electricity price, more than 8 degrees of power means that using LED point light sources every month will save $ 2 in electricity costs compared to traditional incandescent lamps. If you use more outdoor lighting or commercial lighting, you will save more money. High electricity prices have prompted the increase in the use of energy-saving light bulbs in Europe, and will also be one of the important factors affecting the penetration rate of LED point light sources in the future.
In addition to high electricity prices, Europe is another part of the light culture worth exploring. Outdoor lighting in Europe focuses on creating a light environment rather than simply emphasizing the type of lighting or brightness level. For example, in France, Lyon integrates lighting and urban culture. The government introduces budget lighting every year and organizes a lighting festival once a year. It also launched the "International Urban Lighting Joint Family" (LUCI) to attract 30 to 40 international cities to join, whether it is tourism or economic benefits.
