Single Row LED Light Bars Accounted for Half the Sales in 2018
Five out of every ten LED light bars bought in 2018 were single-row LED light bars, according to the FMI poll. The popularity of single luminaires is rising, which is good news for single-row LED light bar sales. Two-row or dual-row LED light bars will sell second-highest in the market, with single-row LED light bars expected to grow at a rate of 4.1 percent in 2019.
While applications of triple row or quad row can be found in bigger public spaces or private event areas, single and dual-LED light bar applications are still preferred for small to mid-sized locations like residential and commercial spaces.
Combo Beam Pattern Top Selling, Accounting for Over 6 in 10 LED Light Bars
According to the survey, over one-third of the worldwide LED light bar market’s sales in 2018 were of LED light bars with combination beam patterns. As a result, more than 60% of LED light bars sold in 2019 will have a combination beam pattern. Off-road heavy-duty cars and some niche applications continue to have a very consolidated demand for LED light bars with combined beam patterns.
In 2018, the combined revenue from flood and spot beam patterns amounted to over one-third of the market. However, demand for LED light bars with flood beam patterns continues to be stronger than that for LED light bars with spot beam patterns.
Application in Events and Shows Continues to Surge
According to FMI, 4 out of 10 LED light bars purchased in 2018 were intended for use at exhibitions and events. As stakeholders look for money- and energy-saving strategies to improve the entire cost structure, the use of LED light bars in events and performances continues to rise. The demand trend for applications for events and exhibits is expected to continue in the future, with a growth of 4% predicted in 2019.
Automotive is another lucrative market for LED light bars, and manufacturers are competing to offer distinctive and eye-catching LED light bar designs. With a 4% growth rate, the automobile industry is anticipated to sell approximately 3 out of 10 LED light bars in 2019.
