Lighting and Smart Lighting

Based on the available data, over the past ten years the Italian lighting lamp market has been characterized by the massive replacement of old incandescent lamps and traditional, low-efficiency halogen lamps (definitely banned in the EU in 2012 and 2018, respectively) with more efficient lighting technologies such as fluorescent compact lamps and LED lamps. The rate of this replacement can be quantified by considering data from 2015 and 2016. In 2015, over 40 million LED lamp and 3,5 million LED integrated devices were sold in Italy, corresponding to a market value of 520/560 million euros, with about 90% of it driven by residential buildings and 80% (440/460 million euros) driven by LED lamp purchasing. In 2016, the Italian lighting lamp stock was estimated at over 648 million, of which 614 million installed in residential buildings (about 95% of the lamp’s stock), almost 23 million in commercial and industrial buildings, and over 11 million used for public lighting. Among these figures, the residential sector accounted for about 350 million fluorescent compact lamps, 124 million LED lamps, 90 million efficient halogen lamps with new bulb generation, and 37 million spotlight and linear halogen lamps. Most recent data show that the current market is basically a substitution market although the replacement of old lamps is not yet completely over.
