US demand for lamps is forecast to rise 3.8 percent annually through 2013. Gains will be driven by federal regulations aimed at replacing conventional incandescent lamps with higher cost fluorescent lamps. Halogen lamps are also forecast to grow especially fast, benefiting from the ban on general service incandescent lamps.
This study analyzes the $5.7 billion US lamp industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by lamp type (e.g., incandescent, halogen, fluorescent, high intensity discharge) 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 32 industry players, including GE Lighting, OSRAM SYLVANIA and Philips Lighting.
