Synopsis:

With billions of semiconductor-based LED light sources installed annually, smart lighting is one of the largest and fastest growing Internet of Things (IoT) markets. Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) network technologies such as Sigfox, LoRa® , NB-IoT, RPMA and Weightless promise to connect billions of IoT devices through public and private networks that connect thousands of devices over multiple miles.

In this report, we analyze the market opportunity and competitive landscape for LPWA solutions for smart lighting including municipal streetlights, roadway lighting, campuses, area lighting, parking lots/garages as well as buildings and residences.

RF mesh systems have the most widespread support from the utility/energy and lighting industries and are the primary focus for two-thirds of the dozens of smart lighting vendors that we evaluated. However, the large market share by Telensa-- the current outdoor smart lighting leader-- as well as growing support from major network operators has resulted in LPWA technologies making up nearly half of the installed wireless units by the end of 2017.

For cities and businesses that do not yet have a smart lighting system, LPWA networking is an opportunity by reducing the network complexity and, potentially, the operational costs of smart lighting. Compared with RF mesh systems, tradeoffs are immature standards, higher latency and lower bandwidth that may affect the ability to support multiple IoT applications from a single control node, a growing smart lighting trend.

Within the next decade, there will be 1 billion wireless cloud-connected light fixtures making up less than 5% of the total installed base of light fixtures worldwide at this time up from 1% in 2017.

In this report, we cover the growing LPWA market opportunities for intelligent lighting controls for streetlights/roadways, campuses/area lighting, buildings and residences. It includes market size forecasts (2016-2022) for installed lighting controllers, annual unit shipments and breakdowns by market, technology, geography and equipment/services; key findings from several surveys; an in-depth technology evaluation; and analysis of 50+ companies involved with smart lighting.
