Market Report Description

The Global LED Lighting Market size is expected to reach $115.6 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 11.6% CAGR during the forecast period. A light-emitting diode (LED) refers to a semiconductor device that releases light when an electric current is sent through it. When the particles having current join together within the semiconductor material, light is generated.

The color of light is dependent on the energy needed for the electron to cross the band gap of the semiconductor. Colors such as red, green, yellow, blue, purple, white, bi-color, tri-color, and infrared can be produced by an LED. LEDs are generally installed in indoor lighting, outdoor lighting, and as a backlight source in LCD display. Presently, LEDs are among the most effective lighting sources available and would become the first technology in the next few years. Moreover, LED provides a long lifespan, durability, energy efficiency, design flexibility, economic efficiency, zero UV emissions, and low-voltage operation, etc.
