US demand for lamps is projected to decline nearly two percent annually in unit terms through 2015, due to regulations which effectively ban incandescent lamps starting in 2012. Halogen lamps, which are the most similar to incandescent lamps in cost and light quality, will grow the fastest. However, light emitting diodes (LEDs) will pose a serious threat to lamp demand in the long term.
This study analyzes the $5.8 billion US lamp industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 2000, 2005 and 2010, and forecasts for 2015 and 2020 by lamp type (fluorescent, high intensity discharge, incandescent, halogen) and market (e.g., buildings, consumer products, motor vehicles, outdoor lighting).
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 31 industry players, including General Electric, Siemens and Royal Philips Electronics.
