The UK lighting market is a mature market that has undergone significant changes in recent years. The most important of these being the withdrawal from production of incandescent, halogen and fluorescent lighting. These products are progressively being replaced by energy efficient LED lighting; however, with higher levels of competition, this technology has seen a sharp fall in price over the last decade, impacting on market value growth.

The focus of this report is on the main types of lighting products & systems used in residential and non-residential applications. It covers the following key product categories in depth: –

  • Lamps
  • Luminaires
  • Lighting Controls

Although these have been relatively separated in the past, the market is now witnessing an increasing overlap between these categories. Much of this can be attributed to the development of connected lighting systems, such as equipment combining luminaires with lighting controls, also growth in the number of luminaires supplied with integrated LED lamps.

The UK lighting industry is facing a number of challenges in 2024, including a decline in construction new orders, increasing competition, high production costs, changing legislation, stricter health & safety regulations, and environmental issues.

As such, the market is expected to remain flat in 2024 and be supported primarily by RMI activity. The market is then forecast to return to steady growth in 2025 to the end of the forecast period. Although market demand is highly influenced by construction output, the market is expected to also be sustained by many of recent technological advances in LED lighting, also growth in demand for smart lighting devices and connected systems & controls.
