Presently, lighting accounts for huge amount of the electricity bill in the Latin America, which makes it full of potential for electricity and cost savings. Although fluorescents have been considered for offering greater efficiency compared to incandescent bulbs, LEDs have been revealed to be the most efficient and to last longer than fluorescent and HID lighting source in the market, making them the next logical step. LED light bulbs typically last for about 50,000 hours - twice as long as fluorescents - and are up to twice as efficient as fluorescents, which are four to six times more efficient than incandescent. Further, unlike fluorescent lamp or incandescent bulbs, LEDs do not get hot. LEDs are supposed to be the market leader in energy efficient lighting solutions in near future.
The impending ban on the utilization of incandescent bulbs in most of the Latin American nations will considerably boost the LED (Light Emitting Diode) and florescent lighting market. Post 2015, LED lighting applications are expected to witness the highest market share in overall lighting market. Quite the opposite, growth of industrial and office applications of LED lighting will be slower. This is mainly because of the existing high penetration of fluorescent lamps in this region and cost-competitive attribute of CFLs and linear fluorescent. LED lighting market is relatively very small in Latin American nations in comparison to other lighting technologies, however growth prospect is huge. CFL (Compact Fluorescent lamp) is the second fastest growing market in Latin America with a CAGR of 16.4% from 2011 to 2015.
Unit sales for ballasts in Latin America region is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 17.3% from 2011 to 2015. The Latin America electronic Fluorescent ballasts market is expected to reach USD 124.8 million in 2015 from USD 81.3 million in 2011 at a CAGR of 11.3 percent for the same period. Growth drivers of ballast industry include government regulations, technological developments, price reduction, and augmented consumer demand. The growth in real estate industry and increased adoption of advanced technologies like electronic ballasts by lighting designers and building developers will support the growth of Ballast market further.
In 2011, South America accounted for 69.0 per cent of energy-efficient lighting market in Latin American region. South American lighting market is expected to reach USD 1,145.3 million in 2015, growing at a CAGR of 14.5% from 2011 to 2015. Mexico is expected to be the second largest energy-efficient lighting market at USD 365.2 million in 2015.
