Global Energy Efficiency Market Estimates Point To Continued Strong Growth 

Going “green” has been a big theme over the past several years. Aging infrastructure and energy systems continue to be incredibly inefficient and cost prohibitive. In addition, growing awareness of global climate change has had an impact on the energy efficiency market. As social awareness, cost savings, and government incentives continue to take hold in the energy efficiency markets, market research firms see a bright future ahead. 

According to MarketsAndMarkets, the global LED lighting market is estimated to be worth $92.40 billion by 2022, which represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.66%. The market research firm sees the growth being driven by increasing demand for energy efficiency products, LED costs are falling, and overall greater adoption of the technology as a general lighting source. 

According to Renub Research, the global LED lighting market is estimated to be worth $100 billion by the end of 2024. The market research firm sees the vast global growth primarily stemming from exponential global urbanization and greater awareness to energy efficiency systems.  

In PwC’s “2017 Power and Utilities Trend” report, analysts concluded that a vast majority of the growth will come from a “blueprint for a service-based model.” This would include: emerging technologies, monitoring equipment, sensors, energy management technology, and more. 

According to Technavio market research, the global industrial energy efficiency services market is forecast to be valued around $10.18 billion by 2020, which represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6%.
