The global LED panel light market was worth US$ 15.02 Billion in 2018. According to the estimates, the market is anticipated to exceed US$ 32.28 Billion by 2024, growing at a CAGR of 13.86% during 2019-2024.
Unlike fluorescent light fixtures, LED panel lights have no-restrike delays and can start instantly and can be easily installed in fast retrofitting situations. Apart from this, these lights are rapidly gaining preference in highly controlled environments owing to their advanced features including dimmability, remote plug and play drivers, maintained three hours emergency options, compatibility with building controls, motion sensors, and timers.
They are also being considered as a green alternative to traditional light fixtures as they are constructed with non-hazardous materials such as high-grade extruded aluminum and steel which have no disposal issues. Owing to these benefits, governments of various nations are also encouraging the use of LED panel lights to conserve energy and promote environmental protection.
Moreover, with the advancements in LED technology, manufacturers have launched LED products in new color variants, which is further contributing to their demand.
