DALLAS, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- This report analyzes the market for LED drivers, MCUs, sensors and other chips used in smart lighting. It is the latest in reports on smart lighting, which covers both the lighting itself and important components and chips used in smart lighting systems. In this report we explicitly discuss smart lighting components in the context of the emerging Internet-of-Things.
The market for LED drivers, MCUs, sensors and other chips used in smart lighting will grow from around $67 million in 2014 to $1.05 billion in 2019. This is according to a new report from industry analyst "The Markets for Smart Lighting Drivers, Controllers and Sensor Chips – 2014." Based on the broad acceptance of the Internet-of-Things (IoT), of which smart lighting is a part, Researcher has considerably upgraded its long-term forecasts for smart lighting compared with a previous report we issued in 2013.

The report focuses on analysis for the chips that will be used in the newer kinds of smart lighting — color tuning (mood lighting) and visible light communications (VLC) — as well as more traditional smart lighting aimed primarily at increasing lighting efficiency. Coverage includes innovative devices such as intelligent LED drivers with embedded sensors and the latest wireless standards for smart lighting such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE).
In addition, the report also covers the needs of all the major end-user segments of the market. We take these to be commercial and industrial, residential, government and public buildings. We have also discussed the available markets for smart lighting in transportation and outdoor lighting.
Companies mentioned in the report include: Acuity Brands, ARM, Atmel, Broadcom, California Eastern Labs, Casio, Cavet, Cypress Semiconductor, Daintree Networks, Digi, Dresden elektronik, Eastfield, Easylite, Echoflex, Energy Automation Systems, EnOcean, Fifth Light, FlexiPanel, Freescale, Leviton, IBSEN, Infineon, Intel, Leedarson, Libellium, Lumenergi, Lumetric, Lutron, Luxim, Marvell, Masco, Microchip Technology, MK Electric, MMB Research, Nivis, NXP, OLEDCOMM, Omnio, Osram, Panasonic, Philips, Radiocrafts, Radios Inc., Renesas, RF Monolithics, Schneider Electric, Sena, Sharp, Siemens, Silicon Labs, STMicroelectronics, Supreme Architecture, Sylvania, Telegesis, Texas Instruments, Universal Lighting, and Zonoff.

Detailed eight-year market projections of seven major smart lighting chip types in both revenue and volume terms are presented. Additional breakouts are provided by (1) the part of the lighting system in which the chips are used and (2) the technology generation of the system itself and (3) the type of building, vehicle or location in which the smart lighting systems will be used.
The report is designed for semiconductor industry executives that want to better understand the opportunities in smart lighting electronics. It is also intended to provide guidance to firms in the LED and smart lighting systems sectors who need to better understand where smart-lighting electronics trends will take their businesses.
The LED lighting market is expected to expand rapidly and much of the next-generation of LED lighting being deployed will be "smart." We are seeing a growing interest in smart lighting by the chipmakers as part of their refocusing on Internet-of-Things opportunities. New types of intelligent LED drivers with embedded sensors and MCUs are expected to emerge as a result. Sales of LED drivers for smart lighting systems are expected to reach $525 million by 2019.
Despite such growth, LED driver chips for energy efficient lighting will commoditize quickly. It will become increasingly hard to make the case for smart lighting on just efficiency grounds anymore. As a result, chipmakers will then turn their attention to color-tunable lighting for improved mood, health and job performance. Here there is still considerable opportunity to designing innovative chips enabling cool-to-warm adjustment and the ability to cycle through a range of colors. Chips consumed by color tuning smart lighting systems will reach almost $260 million by 2019. Future light tuning chips for lighting systems will also be built around a new generation of LED microarrays.
Standards development for smart lighting-related wireless networking has accelerated in the past year. Important new developments in this area include the evolution of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to control lighting using QR codes and the emergence of a Google protocol for smart lighting networking that incorporates IPv6. Meanwhile, ZigBee light bulbs getting cheaper thanks to recent "smart lamp" introductions from GE and possibly others. By 2019, the revenues generated by smart lighting sensors are expected to exceed $220 million.
