USA. Consumption of lighting fixture, 2015-2017 estimated data and 2018-2021 forecasts


In 2017, the US production of lighting fixtures is estimated by CSIL to be worth USD 13.4 billion. In 2014, it overcame the pre-crisis level and in 2015 and 2016 it continued a positive trend, mainly driven by the professional segment. During 2017, its growth softened to a level of 2.1%, as the production of residential luminaires dropped by almost 20% while the professional segment kept on hiking at sustained rates.

This trend can be explained as a phenomenon of import substitution. Cheap consumer luminaires, mainly from China and Mexico, have been progressively substituting the local production, which now satisfies only 17% of the demand of residential lighting fixtures. On the other hand, local manufacturers have been more and more focus on the professional segment that, in 2017, represented almost 88% of the value of the US production of lighting fixtures.

Between 2012 and 2017, consumption of lighting fixtures in the United States has grown at a yearly average rate of 4.6%. After years of outstanding growth, in 2016 the lighting fixture market started decelerating and in 2017 it registered a contraction of 0.9%. This slowdown can be explained by several factors. First, the pricing environment has become challenging, as pricing headwinds have eroded companies' margins. Then, international trade registered a contraction, as both imports and exports have declined. This is particularly true for the technical lighting business that over the last three years has reduced its degree of openness.

Such a weakness in internal demand is expected to continue in 2018 and 2019; for both years CSIL estimates a contraction of 1.2%.
