The hardware segment held the largest market share in the aspect of the offering segment. This growth can be attributed to the growing adoption of outdoor LED-based lighting systems over traditional lighting systems, which is mainly driven by the increasing consumer demand for energy-efficient lighting systems. The hardware segment led the global outdoor LED lighting market in 2021 due to the increasing installation of hardware like lamps, luminaires, and control systems in outdoor applications such as streets and roads, public places, sports complexes, and large areas.
The sports and large areas segment is expected to witness the highest growth rate during the forecast period. Hundreds of sporting arenas and stadiums have already begun retrofitting their facilities with LED lights. LED lighting features a wide beam angle, ensuring optimal light spread throughout the stadium. The stadium LED lighting range offers incredible energy savings of up to 75% and eliminates maintenance overheads. More stadiums are expected to switch to LED lighting soon.
Direct sales channels are expected to provide lucrative opportunities for market players during the forecast period. As the buying behavior of consumers changes, online sales channels are expected to record significant growth in the coming years. Direct sales channels also include contract-based sales, mainly in commercial and larger outdoor projects wherein LED technology is also gaining momentum. Most commercial lighting projects and outdoor infrastructure project development contractors prefer direct sales or contract-based channels to meet the lighting requirements of their customers. The direct sales channel has several benefits as it eliminates any third-party interference, thereby reducing procurement costs.
