Research and Markets: Smart Buildings: The Lighting Controls Business 2013 to 2017

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/68rw6s/smart_buildings) has announced the addition of the "Smart Buildings: The Lighting Controls Business 2013 to 2017" report to their offering.

The impact of LED technology is providing vast opportunities to improve lighting products and their efficiency. This has coincided with the mandated demand to reduce CO2 emissions in buildings; creating a unique and challenging opportunity. But this will come at the cost of destabilizing this long established industry.

Although the manufacture and design of lighting controls is for the most part a separate business, the introduction of LED Lighting opens up new possibilities for enhanced control and also extends it further across the Internet of Things.

If the lighting controls market is to maximize the growth opportunities that we forecast then it must increase its share of the retrofit market. Whilst the case for retrofitting buildings with LED lighting has become very compelling it needs wireless technology in order to bring down the installation cost and improve the return on investment in much of this sector.
