One of the main pillars of sustainability and energy efficiency worldwide is lighting, with special focus on the ways in which lighting can be used efficiently. Unsurprisingly, the lighting industry affords opportunities galore, more so in the Middle East, with its unique lighting needs. Industry estimates indicate that the global lighting market will grow at a CAGR of 13% until 2018, propelled by the increased use of energy-efficient LED lighting across public and private sector projects. Electricity consumption in the MENA region is also set for faster growth, with over USD 200 billion in planned investments in the region’s power sector by 2020. Global forecasts for the total LED market predict an annual growth of 5% till 2016, and 3% thereafter until 2020. With the popularity of LED lighting on the rise in both indoor and outdoor lighting, the region is poised to experience tremendous growth, with a market that is potentially worth USD 350 million by 2017.
The 4th Annual Middle East Smart Lighting and Energy Summit will bring to the fore the challenges faced by the industry, developments in smart technology, upcoming projects, the regulatory standards, and many more such topics of relevance to the industry. The summit affords a unique opportunity to share and learn, as well as network with those who matter.
