Moreover, the rising prevalence of new-generation LED lighting, which is more versatile as it has spectrum-turning characteristics which allow changes in the quality and nature of lights for different events is gaining high traction across the globe. Various new and advanced innovations in the lighting industry by key market companies such as the integration of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, and remote control is likely to fuel the adoption of these light and contribute to the market positively in the coming years.

For instance, in August 2021, Signify introduced new “Smart Wi-Fi lights” in India. The newly developed smart lights mainly work on Wi-Fi & do not need any dedicated hub and can be easily controlled through Wiz mobile app or the voice assistants like Amazon Alexa & Google Assistant.

However, various stringent rules and regulations for lighting industries like the Energy Star Program, United Nations Environment Programme, and National Electric Code along with the higher installation cost of these types of lighting solutions are key factors hampering the growth of the market.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the growth of the specialty lighting market. The rapid emergence of the deadly coronavirus led to curfew and lockdown all over the world, which resulted in temporary shutdowns of manufacturing units and disruptions in the supply chain and various regulations for organizing an event was also a major reason for the decline in demand for lighting products. However, due to the rise in the construction activities of temporary hospitals, thus the demand for medical illumination was anticipated to gain growth during the pandemic period.
