LONDON — Technavio announces the top 10 leading vendors in their recent global LED lighting market for horticulture application report. The report presents the major vendors that manufacture LED lighting products for horticulture applications in the Americas, APAC, and EMEA.
The competitive scenario of the global LED lighting market for horticulture applications is entirely different from the global LED market. In other applications, big players such as Cree, Nichia, Samsung LED, Philips lighting, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, and Seoul Semiconductor dominate ; in the global LED lighting market for horticulture applications, Technavio sees no dominant players. The market is flooded with several small players that have captured significant market share in their respective regions.
“The competition in the market is moderate because vendors in the market are focusing on increasing awareness about the use of lighting systems in the horticulture sector, said Navin Rajendra, a lighting analyst at Technavio. Most of the horticulturists lack the knowledge of type of lighting products and technology suitable for different kinds of horticulture crops.”
Vendors are collaborating with local horticulturists to provide knowledge about the hardware and software required in the sector. Bid players with strong financing background, advanced technology, strong geographical presence, and strong awareness about the market deployment strategies are posing a threat to regional players.
For instance, Philips is conducting several trial projects in Europe, Americas, and APAC, resulting in higher demand for their products in the regions.
