A light control switch is an instrument that is used to regulate the operation of electrical lights, outlets, or other permanently attached light-related equipment. A light control switch can be used to turn lights on and off or modify light output up or down with a dimmer. Light control switches are primarily used to cut energy expenditures and promote sustainability, as well as to suit the lighting requirements of the user.

Various sorts of switches are utilized depending on the lights, including proximity switches, push-button light switches, dimmer light switches, and far more. This solution allows the user to control them using smartphone or tablet. With an extensive assortment of commercial lighting and control solutions that are simple to specify, light control switches enable customers to create more efficient areas.

Additionally, while compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) use little electricity, their demand grows, necessitating the use of light control switches. Moreover, advances in the electronic industry resulted in the emergence of Wi-Fi switches and remote switches that can be used to manage lights from a distance. Wi-Fi light switches work with a variety of hubs and can usually be connected to a home automation system. Also, the market for light control switches is influenced by urbanization and industrialization, due to the increasing number of residential and commercial properties.

Moreover, the flexibility offered by light control switches, the ease of implementation, the variety of switches designed for multiple purposes, and the enhancement of the customer's ease are all factors that drive the growth of the light control switches market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 caused a major decline in the economy of the world as governments were forced to impose lockdowns in their countries in order to regulate the spread of the pandemic. Moreover, Construction sales are closely proportional to light control switch sales. Construction industry has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which ultimately resulted in a significant drop in light control switch sales in 2020. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the production of light control switches was halted for a long period of time. The downfall in the demand for light control switches was also caused by the decrease in demand for electronics.

According to the UNIDO, due to the uncertainty and lack of revenue during the lockdown, 30.0–70.0 percent of pre-COVID-19 workers in various industries, viz. electrical and other third-party suppliers, relocated to their hometowns. This lack of worker availability had a direct impact on production and manufacturing activities, resulted in a decrease in demand for raw materials utilized in light control switches.

Market Growth Factors:

Unnecessary and excessive consumption of energy is one of the primary issues. The cost of operations including commercial and residential uses, in the present, is driven by it. There is gap between the consumption and production of energy across the world, wherein, consumption is increasing at a rapid pace, which is a major concern for the authorities. Aware consumers are opting for the products that are energy efficient with minimum or zero effect on environment.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Higher cost of product deployment

LED dimmers can help the user to save costs on their electric bill, which is why so many individuals have installed them in their homes across the world. However, there is one major drawback that they are prohibitively expensive. light control switches are more expensive than regular light switches because these switches comprise more components in comparison of regular light switches.
