Technological advancements within the current market landscape are predominantly aimed toward enhancing lighting performance and minimizing energy consumption. In recent times, as the efficiency of LED technologies continues to improve, the demand for dimmer and color-tunable products has witnessed notable growth.  Innovations, including tunable liquid lenses have played a key role in the development of luminaries wherein focus, beam pattern, and temperature color can be adjusted. Technologies such as ambient/optimum lighting and distribution system lighting, passive infrared motion sensing-based lighting and motion sensor lighting systems have revolutionized the lighting space in recent years. The onset of such technologies is likely to propel the dimmer and color tunable market in the coming years.

Manufacturers to Address Supply-chain Challenges Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic

The advent of the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to influence the expansion of the market for dimmer and color tunable products in the first half of the forecast period. Although new technologies are entering the market space at a rapid pace, the demand for dimmer and color tunable products is expected to witness a decline particularly in the first half of 2020. Companies are increasingly focusing on minimizing supply chain disruptions, as lighting systems are critical in both outdoor as well as indoor applications. Market players are likely to focus on addressing the demand from the infrastructure sector. However, a shortage of electric components sourced from China, along with disruptions in international trade is projected to impact the demand-supply equation in the near future.

Dimmer and Color Tunable Market: Overview

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global dimmer and color tunable market for the historical period of 2017–2018 and the forecast period of 2019–2027, growing popularity of dimmers and color-tunable lights in a large number of industries, including medical & pharmaceutical, agriculture, and automotive across the globe is expected to boost the global market during the forecast period
  • In terms of revenue, the global dimmer and color tunable market is estimated to reach value of ~US$ 36 Bn by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of ~8% during the forecast period
  • In terms of volume, the global dimmer and color tunable market is estimated to reach 403,340.2 units by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of ~6% during the forecast period

Rising Demand for Color-tunable LED Luminaires Worldwide: A Key Driver

  • LED lighting is gaining significant popularity worldwide, owing to its higher energy efficiency than other light sources such as incandescent light. Regions, including North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific are continuously focusing on the replacement of traditional incandescent lights with LED lighting. With the advancement in technology, lighting from LEDs can be easily adjusted in accordance with the application or event. These lights are called color-tunable LED lights or luminaires.
  • Color tunable LED luminaires are the products whose CCT (correlated color temperature) can be controlled. Demand for color-tunable LED luminaires is on the rise across the globe, due to their increasing adoption in commercial as well as residential spaces. These lights are being adopted by restaurants and households, as they can mimic incandescent light.
  • Moreover, color-tunable LED luminaires offer several health benefits, as they can mimic daylight exactly. This has a positive impact on the natural system as well as the circadian system of the human body.
  • Increasing demand for color-tunable LED luminaires is expected to have a high positive impact on the global dimmer and color tunable market in the near future
