According to the research report, Middle East and Africa LED Lighting Market Outlook, 2028 the market is anticipated to add USD 6.38 Billion during the forecast period. When it comes to lighting, Middle East users have been concerned about telling the hype from reality, and when it comes to modern lighting technology, they still demand value for money. Various countries in the Middle East region are dedicated to deploying energy-efficient lighting solutions across residential, commercial, industrial, and other sectors to reduce carbon footprints and emissions as well as to provide a sustainable environment across the region. Changes in artificial intelligence and smart technological changes are also expected to completely reshape the Middle East’s future in the coming years. For instance, Eaton Middle East launched emergency lighting that provides a complete solution for all large open-plan areas. Electronic programming in these new products allows the 12 dedicated LEDs in each lamp head to be set up for wide light distribution for anti-panic lighting or narrowly focused lighting to illuminate escape routes or emergency equipment such as alarms and fire extinguishers.
In addition to that, the development of smart buildings and smart cities is fuelling LED growth. Huge investments in public and private infrastructure are observed in the UAE, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia. Outdoor lighting systems are also used to attract tourists to popular sites in the UAE, such as Dubai Mall, which has a light and water show, and Burj Khalifa, which has a light show. Smart lighting, also known as connected lighting, is an important lighting solution that offers better energy efficiency than halogen options, even delivers durability in terms of breakage resistance, and is largely immune to vibrations. It provides solutions for both indoor and outdoor purposes with the latest advanced technology products such as LEDs, luminaires, fluorescent bulbs, and others. The luminaries segment leads the market in terms of product type, accounting for more than 63% of the market.
Saudi Arabia is the leading country in the LED lighting market on the back of growing construction projects in the country, especially in the hospitality and residential sectors. Moreover, with the growing investment in the country’s infrastructure development projects, the LED lighting market is expected to register high growth over the next few years. Other factors driving the growth are government incentives and changing attitudes toward LED lighting. African lighting is an emerging market for LED lighting. This emerging economic modernization in African countries comes at a time of global economic recession, but Africa still maintains steady economic growth. South Africa became the first African country to phase out incandescent lamps. Africa has been committed to the development of sustainable lighting solutions, seeking effective solutions to power consumption in the global low-carbon trend, driven by increased demand for LED lighting. Over the coming years, the African lighting market is expected to record considerable growth owing to infrastructure development and rising demand for low-cost lighting solutions across the region.
The growing demand for internet of things (IoT) technology, growing awareness about energy savings among consumers and governments worldwide, and the emergence of light fidelity (Li-Fi) technology emerge as the major factors driving the market growth. The demand for energy-efficient connected lighting controls and ongoing and upcoming smart city projects, as well as various policies encouraging energy conservation and environmental protection, combined with stringent regulations, discourage the use of incandescent lamps, which will exacerbate market value in developing economies. The increasing adoption of smart and automated systems by commercial enterprises is thus expected to accelerate the market’s growth. However, the high initial cost of integration and installation services, deployment, smart equipment, and accessories acts as a restraint for the market.
