India. Private, furniture, furnishing and appliances (including lighting) consumption expenditure, 2011-2015.%change


With 1.3 billion people, a fast-growing economy and favorable demography, India is the country that many companies around the world are looking to for repeating the performances registered in China. Nevertheless, in its last World Economic Outlook, the IMF revised the Indian growth projections for 2017 and 2018 downwards, citing " still lingering disruptions" associated with the currency exchange initiative introduced in 2016 and the transition costs related to the launch of the national Goods and Services Tax. The Indian middle-class expansion is far from meeting the level predicted by many analysts. Therefore, private consumption, even if growing, is not registering the expected outstanding performances. In this context, the lighting business is a bit of a black swan, driven by the breakthrough of the LED lighting technology in the country.

Between 2011 and 2017, the Indian lighting fixtures market has grown by an average annual rate of 7% in USD (+13% in local currency). The professional segment has led the market, gaining 8 percentage point in term of market share at the expense of the residential business, which still had outperformed both the private and the furniture consumption (see the figure above). The real driver of such a growth has been the advance of the LED technology, identified by the Government as a key instrument to control energy consumption, in a country with over 1.3 billion people and where the lighting load accounts for approximately 17% of the total connected load (worldwide average is around 8%). Through National and State government incentives, laws, and giant infrastructural projects LED-base lighting fixtures passed from accounting 5% of the market in 2011 to 43% in 2017, reaching a market value of USD 1.1 billion.
