  • Lamps (separately LED and Conventional)

It is the first edition of this Report in which also lamps and lighting controls are included.

In this Report, a focus is also given to the potential growth in selected metropolitan areas (2023 forecast).

How lighting products are segmented in the Report


In 2019, consumption of lighting fixtures in the EU30 countries registered a +0.9% increase, thus reaching a total value of EUR 18.1 billion.

LED lamps registered a 14% growth (additionally 1.9 billion Eur) while Conventional lamps registered a -17% (now around 450 million Eur).

To be added also, to reach a grand total for the Lighting market (not considering only lighting fixtures), an estimate of European market for Lighting controls of about 550 million Eur (+4.8%).

Total Lighting market for Europe is so around 21 billion Eur for the year 2019 (+1.6%).

The slight increase of consumption of lighting fixtures comes from a +2% for professional luminaires and around -1% for consumer lighting.

In 2019, the volume of lighting fixtures exports reached EUR 13.4 billion, registering an increase of +0.6%% compared to the previous year. Export is growing in CEE (+5.5%, up to 2.8 billion Eur) and decreasing in WE (10.6 billion, -0.6%).

Imports of lighting fixtures in Europe reached EUR 17.1 billion in 2019, with an increase of 2.6% compared to 2018.

More specifically, imports worth Eur 14.6 billion in WE (+2.4%) and 2.5 billion in CEE (+3.9%).

The Coronavirus crisis will likely to affect, with different accent, the single countries and the many segments of the Lighting sector (Hospitality and Retail will probably be worse, Home, Office and Street lighting will be a little better).

On the whole, it is just a guesstimate at the moment, CSIL estimates that the Lighting market will reach again the levels of 2019 at the end of 2022, to reach an additional growth in 2023.

Among the companies growing in the European market during 2019: Zumtobel, Ikea, Fagerhult, Yankon, Glamox, SLV, Flos, Xal.
