2023-2030: The explosive era of the LED light market

In every household today, alongside electronic appliances that support human life, there must be the presence of light bulbs. With the purpose of illuminating space, each family usually has many light bulbs in various forms, equipped in many areas. These can be mentioned as rooms, hallways, stairs or gardens.

LED lights tend to be a better solution than other types of lights such as halogen, compact, and incandescent lights with durability, flexibility, smaller size, longer lifespan, and environmental friendliness. Another big advantage of using LED lighting systems is that they don't emit heat like incandescent or compact bulbs. This helps LED lights from getting too hot or burning during use. Moreover, LED lights operate at low energy input while providing high brightness, which is the main reason they are widely deployed in outdoor and indoor environments.

It can be seen that raising consumer awareness of the benefits of LED lights, along with the shift in consumer preference towards "green" lighting, is expected to drive the demand for LED products in the future.

Global LED Lighting Market 2023-2030

The global LED lighting market is projected to reach USD 152,442.3 million by 2030, expanding at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.5% from 2022 to 2030 (according to Grand View Research and Research And Markets). Previously, this figure was forecasted to be only 6.1% from 2017-2025. India recently announced plans to develop 100 smart cities by 2030 and approved an investment of nearly USD 15 billion for this project. This could potentially boost the increasing demand for LED lighting.

Vietnam LED Lighting Market 2023-2030

The Vietnamese government is strongly supporting the use of LED lights through two major projects: the Vietnam Energy Efficient Public Lighting Project (VEEPL) and the Vietnam National Energy Efficiency Plan (VNEEP) – aimed at reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions, with the goal of having 100% LED street lights by 2025.

According to statistics from the Ministry of Planning and Investment, in 2022, Vietnam's urbanization rate is estimated to reach 41.7% (1.2% YoY) and is projected to exceed 50% by 2030. Vietnam has over 400 industrial parks as of December 2022, and experts predict that this number will increase by 1.5 times by 2030. Additionally, in the first 9 months of 2023, international visitors to Vietnam are estimated to reach 8.9 million, 4.7 times higher than the same period last year. Tourism in Vietnam is becoming increasingly popular, leading to a positive impact on the LED lighting market due to the growing number of hotels. It is evident that the LED lighting market has great potential for the future and is expected to reach a value of USD 982.8 million by 2028, with a growth rate (CAGR) of 7% during the period 2023 – 2028 (According to IMARC Group's forecast).

Currently, there are over 200 companies registered with LED lighting product brands in the Vietnamese market, divided into 4 groups:

+ Group 1: consists of companies directly producing traditional lighting equipment on a typical scale (Rang Dong, Dien Quang, etc.).

+ Group 2: consists of small and micro-scale companies. Products are manufactured in the form of ODM, OEM - Vietnamese companies set requirements for products, then outsource ODM, OEM manufacturers to design, manufacture, and the Vietnamese companies will put their brand on those product lines.

+ Group 3: includes companies that do not invest in production, but only order products based on existing models in the market at low prices to sell to customers.

+ Group 4: consists of brands that switch from production to importing finished products for distribution in the Vietnamese market, according to the quality standards of LED lighting brands worldwide, at relatively high prices.

One of the biggest advantages is that the world has been and is listening to the "Green Deal" of the EU. Vietnam is also rapidly transitioning from incandescent and compact lamps to LED lamps. Policies and initiatives are being put in place to encourage the use of LED lamps, which is becoming increasingly effective and is an important factor in market development. Although LED lamps are considered the product of the future, there are still many factors slowing down the development of LED lamps in the Vietnamese market, such as: blue and white LED lamps are said to emit light exceeding the safety standard with excessive blue light, which is harmful to the eyes according to the health ministry's standards; The LED coverage in urban areas is quite high, but for areas with lower incomes such as rural areas, being willing to pay for LED products is truly a concern and difficult decision.
