According to a new research report published by Transparency Market Research, a U.S.-based research and intelligence firm, the for Latin America energy efficient lamps and ballasts market is expected to reach US$3,510.1 million by the end of 2018. The report, titled “Energy Efficient Lamps and Ballasts Market - Latin America Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2012 - 2018”, also indicates that the market is expected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 23.0% during the forecast period from 2012 to 2018.
However, a sluggish growth rate is anticipated after a decade owing to the long life span of energy efficient lamps such as compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), and light emitting diode (LED) lamps. Most of the countries in Latin America have proactively participated in the drive to gradually phase out the use of incandescent bulbs and lamps. This has created significant opportunities for the energy efficient lamps and ballast market to capitalize on. The demand for energy efficient lamps is mostly driven by the demand for replacement of obsolete items and new installments in Latin America.
