Although premature and unregulated, the lighting controls and systems market in India witnessed strong growth until recently. This was largely due to the boom in the construction sector, which saw huge investments in commercial, industrial, residential, and infrastructural construction. Growth over the next few years is likely to decelerate through 2010 due to the economic meltdown and the reduction in construction activity. Nonetheless, the market is likely to pick up momentum, primarily driven by energy-saving requirements.
The growing awareness on energy saving and the popularity of green building concepts in India is helping the lighting controls and systems market evolve rapidly. Technological developments have enabled more flexibility and compatibility to facilitate system integration. Other benefits conferred by this technology are carbon emission mitigation and reduction in utility bills.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (buildingtechnologies.frost.com), Analysis of the Lighting Controls & Systems Market in India, finds that market earned revenues of Rs.1571.0 million in 2008 and estimates this to reach Rs.3640.0 million in 2013. The study covers lighting control gears (electromagnetic and electronic) and lighting control devices (sensors, controllers, user interfaces) for commercial, residential, industrial, outdoor, and others applications.

"Rising energy costs has become a major driver for this market because of the insufficient power production in the country," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Vivek Vijayakumar. "The evolution of energy-efficient technologies and the need to save energy and environment have led to the introduction of energy-efficient products."
Higher income levels and greater need for occupant comfort have revved up customer interest on lighting controls. Increased spending in global R&D infrastructure, improvements in technology and best-in-class manufacturing has helped unleash a slew of products suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation across various end-user industries. Lighting greatly enhances the ambience in hotels, restaurants, offices, and private houses. High-end lighting controls offer enormous potential, which will be further amplified by light-emitting diode (LED) technology.
Besides these two segments, the industrial sector encompassing factories, workshops, and warehouses is another growth segment. Airports, metro railway stations, auditoriums, hospitals and educational institutions such as schools, colleges, universities, and libraries are other promising arenas. The demand is expected to strengthen as the pace of growth in the Indian construction sector begins to accelerate.
The indoor segment remains a lucrative sector as demand from commercial and residential buildings continues on an upward trajectory. In the commercial environment, electronic ballasts are supplanting electromagnetic ballasts owing to the capacity for energy savings. LEDs are deployed in new constructions rather that retrofit installation. The future looks promising for retrofit installation in the wake of the recent evolution of wireless technology and the advantage of easy installation.
However, knowledgeable and qualified manpower is mandatory for systems with high-end automation products that need to be integrated with other systems. Otherwise, indecorous system designing and poor installation will have to be dealt with.
"Suppliers should ensure availability of qualified manpower and clearly define the benefits of these systems," Vijayakumar. "To obtain the edge over competition, it is crucial for lighting control vendors to offer seamless and efficient products, services and solutions at extremely competitive prices, design the system at the initial stages of the project by showing a realistic return on investment and back it up with effective service and training support to customers."
