Infrastructure Boom Turns Southeast Asia into a Goldmine for LED Lighting Vendors, TrendForce Says

2015/03/12

LED

LED lighting markets in Europe, the US, and Japan have gradually matured, and China is also entering a period of intense competitions over pricing and scale With the formation of the ASEAN Economic Community, LED vendors’ attention on the emerging markets in Southeast Asia has grown over the years According to a recent estimation made by LEDinside, a division of Trendforce, the lighting markets of the six major Southeast Asia countries – Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Philippines – had a combined value of US$45 billion in 2014 Out of that amount, around US$11 billion came from the LED lighting market The growing infrastructure needs within the countries of Southeast Asia are expected to bring great demands for LED lighting as well  LED lighting market grows rapidly and its market penetration rate to exceed 30% by 2015  Terri Wang, an analyst for LEDinside, said that Southeast Asia’s LED lighting market had the fastest pace of growth in 2013 with a year-on-year increase of 63% Though growth lagged during the 2014-2015 period, the rate was kept at 30% and above Also, the market penetration rate of LED lighting in Southeast Asia has risen with each passing year and at an accelerating speed Overall, the market penetration rate of LED lighting in the region is projected to grow from 12% to 32% within 2012-2015    Among the major countries, Singapore’s lighting market demand is highly saturated and its traditional lighting segment is shrinking As a result, Singapore’s lighting market on the whole has seen a scale reduction in the recent years This downward trend is likely to continue in 2015 However, the scale of the LED lighting segment is still growing Besides Singapore, other countries in the region have experienced overall positive growths in their lighting markets during the same period As a general decline set on these markets’ traditional lighting segment, LED lighting has become the main growth driver Indonesia in particular leads in the general lighting’s market size as well as LED lighting’s Based on LEDinside’s estimation, Indonesia’s general lighting market in 2014 would be valued at US$320 million  Bullish Southeast Asia to become the main export destination for Chinese vendors  Southeast Asia has seen strong growths in the LED market in the past few years and the rate of replacement for traditional lighting has also increased Since countries in the region have weak local manufacturing capabilities and rely on imports, the growing demands for LED lighting can also create huge import demands The scale of imports from China will therefore multiply because of China’s advantages in manufacturing capabilities, geographical proximity, and product pricings Wang expects positive policies and rising replacement demands will speed up the growths of Southeast Asia’s LED market penetration rate and LED imports Furthermore, the region will eventually become the major export destination for Chinese LED vendors Hence, vendors should accordingly direct their market development efforts to the area

Affected by the global economic downturn, there has been rising number of city bankruptcies In turn, city management are increasingly valuing sustainable development Outdoor lighting construction and maintenance costs have gradually increased over the years in city public lighting expenditures City managers are creating suitable living environment that uses low investment and maintenance costs and can be met on a limited budget As LED streetlight solutions mature, city governments have proven from early pilot projects that LED luminaires are energy efficient, environmental friendly and have long lifetime LED streetlight prices have also dropped to prices close to conventional luminaires From manufacturers’ exponential shipment growth statistics, and concentrated release of city government bid contracts, LEDinside believes LED outdoor lighting has moved from the development phase to a mature market In the next few years LED outdoor lighting shipment volume and market size growth will soar on a YoY basis North American Market By the end of 2013, more than 600 US cities have planned to install LED streetlights For instance, there will be 142,000 LED streetlights installed in Los Angeles, 41,000 in Seattle, 40,000 in Las Vegas, and 32,000 in Boston New York is also planning to replace 250,000 streetlights with LEDs by 2017, which is to be followed by the replacement of decorative lights in urban commercial areas In addition, most areas in Canada are also actively implementing LED streetlight installation programs or incentives The North American outdoor lighting market is maturing as more manufacturers enter the market Manufacturers’ competitive strategies mainly include providing high cost performance products, paying more attention to environmental factors, and satisfying professionally high-end demands For example, Cree launched 100W  LED streetlight priced at US$ 99 to meet low-budget council’s installation demands In addition, consumer demands are switching from halogen and incandescent lamps to LED lights that are more energy-saving and have long-lifetimes Top manufacturers such as Osram and GE have started to reduce their traditional lighting business and focus more on LED products and solutions European Market The European street light market has always been a business-to-government (B2G) oligopoly market with few products and fairly stable supply chains Typically, local brands or manufacturers are dominant in the market with good government relations and considerable scale European consumers are less sensitive to LED street light prices than consumers from other regions, but have high quality demands Japanese Market The Japanese government 2014 budget of 9588 trillion Japanese yen (US $920 billion) announced on Dec 22, 2013 set a new record high The budget is mainly for increasing financial support for social welfare, national defense, and public buildings To reach their target of halving the current financial deficient of around 50 trillion Japanese yen, the Japanese government increased taxes and cut back on bond issuance The government’s more long term goals incorporates lighting projects and infrastructures related to the 2020 Olympics Some related construction has already  kicked off The government plans to introduce LED lighting and OLED lighting into these projects in order to attract international attention Chinese Market There has been high consistency in Chinese new streetlight installation volume and government fiscal expansion cycle In 2009, Chinese government proposed a RMB 4 trillion economic stimulus plan As a result, the annual number of newly installed street lights reached 184 million units (YOY +1217%) Since 2012, China has tightened monetary spending and strictly managed public expenditure budgets New street light installations in Chinese cities are forecasted to decline The future growth momentum will mainly come from LED street lights replacement demands, especially the outdoor street light project supported by EMC business models Emerging Market LED outdoor lighting installation and related policies are increasingly receiving attention in different emerging markets including India, Russia, Southeast Asia Region (Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand), Latin America( Brazil, Mexico, Argentina and Columbia), and Australia Russia has started phasing out 25W and above incandescent bulbss in 2014, while Malaysia has also implemented measures to phase out or ban incandescent bulbs and traditional lighting in all buildings by 2014 LED penetration rates are projected to increase significantly in Thailand and India in 2015, according to LEDinside In addition, major cities in Australia, Argentina, Colombia and India have begun LED streetlight installations In general, North America, China, and Europe still have the highest demand for outdoor lighting However, due to slashed budgets and high market penetration rates, growth rates have eased The Latin America market has been developed much later, while in Brazil the 2016 Olympics and 2014 World Cup will lead to soaring outdoor lighting market
