Northeast Group LED & smart streetlighting study excerpt

There are currently 317 million total streetlights in the world. This number will grow to 363 million total streetlights by 2027. The public outdoor lighting market is currently undergoing a period of change where legacy streetlights are being replaced with new and more efficient LED, or solid-state lighting, technology. Taking this new technology a step further, these LED streetlights are also being networked together with communications to become “smart” streetlights. This study analyzes and forecasts the global market for both LED and smart street lighting through 2027.

 

While there are still challenges to overcome, the rapid growth of LED and smart street lighting is providing clear examples and benefit cases for cities in diverse contexts to follow. Given these
clear advantages, LED and smart streetlights are projected to reach 89% and 29% of the total streetlight market, respectively, by 2027. This will total a $64.2 billion market opportunity over the next decade.
