LD+A recently published an Illuminating Engineering Society survey about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the lighting industry. The survey was conducted among the IES membership with 1,083 responses from across the industry.

Many of the questions focused on how the pandemic changed work and anticipation of things returning to a semblance of normalcy.

My big three takeaways were:

  • The majority of respondents predicted the lighting industry returning to pre-COVID status either in the second half of 2021 (46%) or during 2022 (40%).
  • In terms of increasing demand, the three biggest winners in the next six months are predicted to be healthcare lighting, infrastructure, and smart/connected lighting.
  • 39% of respondents said it’s either “very likely” or “likely” UVC products will receive widespread adoption in the next six months.
