According to a recent report published by TechSci Research, “India LED Lighting Market Forecast and Opportunities, 2020”, the country’s LED lighting market is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 32% during 2015-20. Presently, the outdoor LED lighting segment is the largest revenue generator on account of growing demand for LED installations in parks, streets, railways, metro stations, parking lots and other public places. However, the indoor segment is anticipated to witness strong growth in future owing to rising awareness about LED technology and various government initiatives to subsidize cost of LEDs. Presently, Philips continues to dominate the country’s LED market, followed by Havells, Syska, Innovlite and GE.
