Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PressExposure) October 26, 2009 -- Even better, the industry offers a superior product with an earth-first attitude. The LED light bulb, which use current passed through a diode to provide light, is in the midst of serious growth. Databeans, a leader in electronics market research, estimates that the global LED market will grow to $5.3 billion by the need of this year. An impressive figure by itself, this number is all the more striking when taken into account that very few consumers are using LEDs, as they are currently far more common in commercial applications.
The rate of growth is remarkable, but the fact that the size of the energy efficient light bulb industry is growing should come as a surprise to no one. These bulbs provide significant financial savings by reducing energy costs up to 75% compared to incandescent bulbs. Maintenance costs are also lowered due to a far longer life (up to 50 times longer than incandescent lamps. This also means less time spend climbing ladders, recycling bulbs, and dealing with outages. Other benefits of LED light bulbs include a much cooler operating temperature and more flexible color options.
The most important reason for the growth of the LED light bulb industry is that these bulbs have a much smaller environmental footprint. Less energy used due to an efficient product and less trash in our landfills due to a longer life and fewer replacements are both very compelling reasons for eco-conscious companies to make the shift today. LEDs are great as part of your commercial lighting plan, which should be developed with a lighting consultant or expert.
