According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Emergency Lighting Market is accounted for $6.03 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach $10.83 billion by 2030 growing at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period. Emergency lighting is an electronic light technology specifically adopted to reduce the potential injury of the occupants in case of any emergency, such as fire, storm, or any natural disaster. The emergency lighting sector mostly uses fluorescent light and LEDs as lighting sources. The main purpose of emergency lights and exit signs is to guarantee a secure evacuation from any area or structure by creating ideal visual conditions for locating escape routes. The required deployment of emergency lights in residential, commercial, and industrial applications is the consequence of specific rules and regulations enacted by both national and local regulatory bodies.

According to China State Construction Engineering Corporation projects survey report, the emergency lighting installation in newly added housing construction in China increased by over 43%, from 2015 to 2018.

Market Dynamics:


Raising trend of design-driven emergency lights

The aesthetics of emergency lights are currently being highlighted by manufacturers and lighting designers since they play a significant role, particularly in settings like hotels, architectural structures, and homes. The placement and look of emergency lights worry end users. But vendors have begun providing emergency lights that are aesthetically pleasing without sacrificing safety. Manufacturers additionally produce specialized goods so that consumers and governmental organizations may design emergency lights in accordance with their needs. The market demand is being enhanced by these expanding tendencies.


High installation costs

Effective emergency lighting systems need a considerable capital investment and ongoing operating expenses. To provide enough emergency lighting, architects, electrical experts, and lighting designers must overcome a number of obstacles. The relevant information about the location must be acquired via blueprints, site inspections, or the structure before commencing any emergency lighting design. Emergency lighting systems may have low-quality components as a result of their high cost. This factor is hindering the market growth.


Growing government initiatives

Expanding government initiatives will lower national GHG emissions. They improve energy security and produce large economic gains. The Australian Government, Global Environment Facility (GEF), and Global Efficient Lighting Centre (GELC) have all launched several initiatives for transition to energy-efficient lighting solutions. The effort aids nations as they switch to using energy-efficient lights, appliances, and machinery. The market is experiencing expansion as a result of these initiatives.


High design costs

Custom emergency lights and exit signs are manufactured to the consumer’s exact specifications and needs. Higher expenditures for custom design ultimately result in higher installation and commissioning charges. If the information is not obtained correctly, it may lead to a poorly designed emergency lighting system. Due to the time required to effectively arrange the controls system, more equipment is needed for an installation. The setup may cost more if you go from a bespoke design to a company-made one. Local production of emergency lights may affect their business due to such restraints.

Covid-19 Impact

The covid epidemic has an effect on every business in the world. But the emergency lighting market didn’t get worse during the pandemic. Due to the severe lockdowns, manufacturers experienced a scarcity of electronic components. 89% of members of the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) reported their companies remained operational during the shutdown, and 95% of their revenues were recovered. The market, however, was constrained by a scarcity of manufacturing raw materials.

The self-contained power system segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The self-contained power system segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. The self-contained power systems offer the most fundamental and quickest solution. It contains batteries and works independently. They install more quickly and are simple to extend or modify afterwards. They are frequently the most economical choice for modest to medium-sized projects. Since no additional wiring is needed, installation expenses are rather minimal. Since each light is independent of the others, they provide improved system integrity, which reduces the need for specialized sub-circuit monitoring and promotes the segment's expansion.

The industrial segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The industrial segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. Industrial emergency lights are appropriate for factories, warehouses, and other large spaces that need more watts or voltage for effective illumination. Safety is the top priority in industrial environments, and sustaining high production requires sufficient lighting and adequate illumination. Therefore, emergency lighting is provided in a variety of businesses to assist staff in responding to emergencies and leaving the area safely.

Region with largest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to its technological advancements. There are numerous significant corporations in this region. The increased demand for emergency lights in this region is mostly due to the rising safety consciousness. The main drivers of the the market's growth in North America are rising urbanization, the introduction of cutting-edge technology, energy-efficient goods, and an aging population.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Due to the existence of several significant suppliers, China is currently holding the highest market share. In recent years, China has transformed into a significant exporter of goods to other nations. The regional market is expanding as a result of the expanding population. The main drivers of the market expansion in the region are the government's supportive policies and significant expenditures to upgrade infrastructure.
