Intelligent lighting has become the foundation for smart cities. Offering a fast ROI and ongoing operational benefits, there are strong reasons for cities to adopt lighting control systems. Government mandated migration to LED lights combined with low-cost, low-power wireless sensor network technologies and cloud IoT frameworks has accelerated adoption.
There are over 100 companies from the lighting, utility/energy, IT and Telecom industries targeting the smart city lighting market with networking systems, software platforms, add-on devices and services. Smart city platforms are a multi-billion-dollar investor opportunity with mergers and acquisitions underway such as Verizon of Sensity Systems and Itron of Silver Spring Networks.
Competition is continuing to grow for smart lighting wireless technologies. Wireless mesh systems are used in the largest deployments such as Florida Power & Light's recently completed installation of 500,000 smart streetlights using Silver Spring Networks ' smart lighting platform. However, Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) networks such as Sigfox, LoRa, NB-IoT and RPMA are aggressively targeting this ecosystem with accelerating adoption by major network operators worldwide. In addition, Telensa, a LPWA pioneer, remains the outdoor smart lighting leader.
In 2025, there will be nearly half a billion outdoor lights in use worldwide. From our most aggressive viewpoint, 1 in 4 will have a control system and reach 108 million connected lights by this time. Streetlights will make up the majority, but other market segments such as campuses, car dealer lots, parking garages, shopping malls and other forms of area lighting have faster deployment cycles.
Our analysis of hundreds of outdoor smart lighting projects worldwide found that over half of the installed outdoor smart lighting units are by companies from the IT/Telecom industry, followed by advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) vendors and then lighting manufacturers.
North America became the largest geographical market last year based on the total installed units, including streetlights and other forms of outdoor smart lighting. The UK has had the most aggressive regulatory environment for promoting smart streetlights that has resulted in it having the highest penetration rate to date. As major smart streetlight rollouts reach completion in the UK, the focus has shifted to other European countries, the U.S., Latin America and China.
In this report, we analyze the status, market opportunity and competitive landscape for outdoor smart lighting including municipal streetlights/roadway lighting, campuses, area lighting, parking lots and garages.
It includes market size forecasts for installed lighting controllers (2017-2025) and annual unit shipments with breakdowns by market, technology, geography and revenues for equipment and services (2017-2022); key findings from several surveys; an extensive technology evaluation; in-depth analysis of 60+ companies involved with outdoor smart lighting; and market shares by networked controllers and central management system (CMS) platform. Also included is a summary of the key streetlight and roadway lighting projects by region including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the rest of the world.
