Continuing growth predicted for street lighting

12 September 2018

Increasing use of LED is attributed to an increase in spending on street lighting around the UK, rising from approximately £260m in 2015 and predicted to continue for the next three years.

This was one of the main statements within the UK Street Furniture and Lighting Market Report published by AMA Research.

It predicts that the UK street lighting market will exceed £300m in value for the first time this year.

By 2021, the market is expected to reach £336m, which represents an increase of 17% compared with present levels, says the report.

This will be driven by an increase in new projects, as local authorities continue to replace lighting systems with LED alternatives.

The market is driven mainly by local authorities, with public sector street lighting accounting for around 95%.

These new systems are designed to be more energy efficient, while also saving money on maintenance, with LED luminaires lasting considerably longer than traditional alternatives.

A growing number of facilities around the UK have also been seen to replace their systems with energy-efficient alternatives, in addition to investing in lighting controls.

Further savings are expected in the future as the price of LED products falls in line with the increased demand.

Although market growth in street lighting is expected to stabilise towards 2021, the potential of the government's ambitious house building targets is noted as providing further potential options for expansion.
