A recent article in Electrical Wholesaler reports on four major trends in the lighting controls market.

Electrical distributors, sales reps and manufacturers need to recalibrate their sales and marketing strategies to increase their share of lighting controls that accounts for 2.2% (approximately $2.64 billion) of the estimated $120 billion in sales through full-line electrical distributors.

  • App-based lighting control is commonplace for homes and other smaller applications.
  • Wireless lighting control is popular for applications with a small footprint and retrofit work with a relatively limited number of fixtures to control.
  • Networked lighting control systems are often tied in with HVAC, building automation and security systems in larger applications.
  • Field-selectable CCT (correlated color temperature) and wattage is now widely available across the lighting industry.
