Global Human Centric Lighting Market is set to grow from its current market value of more than $1.25 billion to over $6 billion by 2025; according to a new market report by Global Market Insights.
The rapid transformation of the existing structures and development of advanced & smart infrastructures across various industries including commercial, healthcare, and hospitality is driving the human-centric lighting market.
Increasing research activities related to body dynamic light solutions & implementing them by replacing the traditional halogen bulbs is promoting industry development. Conventional lights have various harmful impacts on human vision and effect working moods due to improper illumination. As a result, the application industries are switching to LED options operated through controllers & software, further adding to the demand for the market solutions. The growing focus of the commercial & industrial sector providing body dynamic illumination to promote employee health and create enhanced working environments supports the human-centric lighting market expansion.
The human-centric lighting market is impacted by the absence of common & industry-specific standards. Lack of regulatory framework related to the technology is limiting the expansion due to safety & security risks. Developing body dynamic illumination systems do not require regulations, which may harm the occupants in case of system failure & other fatalities. Additionally, incompatibility of these systems with conventional lights hinders the market consumption owing to high initial investments.
The software segment in the market will grow at 25% CAGR from 2019 to 2025. It can be credited to the light system controlling & maintenance features installed in the products. The software is capable of altering the color brightness & temperature for suiting different people, activities, and timing. The software integrated products are being developed with touchscreens, allowing offices, hospitals, retailers, etc. to change the light settings.
Additionally, the industry players are developing new software and hardware components to enhance HCL offerings and aid the consumer sector in boosting concentration, alertness, and mood of the employees. For instance, in May 2017, Helvar announced the launch of its new software, Light over Time, specifically developed for the HCL segment. The company has developed the software in integration with its hardware products to promote human health.
Retrofit settings in the human-centric lighting market was valued at over USD 50 million in 2018 and are developing steadily due to the growing consumer awareness related to the impact of illumination on human psychology majorly in the commercial sector. The existing business, retail, and enterprise infrastructures are experiencing the need for advanced & natural illumination to create comfortable aesthetics for employees, workers, and consumers. As a result, several IT enterprises, banks, and retail stores are adopting retrofitting options, further adding up to market growth. Moreover, the widespread availability of high-quality LED fixtures and controllers, which consume less power & reduce the electricity cost, is supporting the industry expansion.
