US Lighting Fixtures Market, Freedonia
October 30, 2014
INTRODUCTION This study examines the US market for electric lighting fixtures. Products covered include nonportable fixtures (vehicular-type, outdoor, industrial-type, and other indoor), portable fixtures (fixtures that are plugged into ordinary wall sockets and thus can generally be moved easily, as well as consumer lighting products such as flashlights), and separately sold parts and accessories for lighting fixtures. Because lamp ballasts make up an important portion of the parts and accessories sector and are central to certain market trends, numbers are presented for both aftermarket and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) shipments. The study does not cover lamps (i.e., light bulbs or LED light engines), sealed beam automotive headlamps or related wiring devices, or dimming controls and related devices. However, for lighting fixtures manufactured to include a nonreplaceable LED light engine (e.g., center high-mounted stop lights on motor vehicles) the cost of the light source is included. Demand for lighting fixtures is also provided by market, including indoor and outdoor construction applications (residential, office and commercial, industrial, institutional, and other buildings; and nonbuilding construction), vehicles and machinery (motor vehicles, off-highway vehicles, and nonautomotive transportation equipment), and consumer and commercial (table lamps, desk lamps, floor lamps, flashlights, and fixtures that are built into furniture or appliances). In addition, the study discusses demand by US region.
