Global Underwater Lighting Market (SARS-CoV-2, Covid-19 Analysis)

The report encompasses the major developments within the Global Underwater Lighting Market amidst the novel COVID-19 pandemic. The report offers a thorough understanding of the different aspects of the market that are likely to be feel the impact of the pandemic.

Market Synopsis

Underwater lighting systems usually comprise lights that are guarded with resilient materials for smooth functioning in ponds, lakes, seas, and other underwater areas. Since these lights are often submerged in saline water, it becomes necessary for the manufacturers to design cases that are resistive to corrosion. According to the law of refraction, the direction of light changes in water and does not follow a straight path. This results in the scattering of light and does not provide ambient light to divers under water. Therefore, over the past few years, the traditional source of light has been replaced by light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for better illumination underwater. Underwater lights are also used by oceanographers for determining the physical and biological aspects of the ocean.

The global underwater lighting market was valued at USD 269.4 million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 359.7 million by the end of the forecast period with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.26%.


Several factors affect the growth of the global underwater lighting market. Increasing demand for underwater lighting in swimming pools and the shift towards the adoption of energy-efficient LEDs has attributed to the growth of the global underwater lighting market. In addition to this, the applications of underwater lights for fishing is one of the factors contributing to the growth of the overall market. However, high installation cost of LEDs is expected to hamper the growth of the global market.


The global underwater lighting market has been segmented on the basis of light source, mounting type, installation type, application, and region.

By light source, the global underwater lighting market has been segmented into light-emitting diode (LED), xenon, halogen, and others.

By mounting type, the global underwater lighting market has been bifurcated into flush mounted and surface mounted.

Based on installation type, the global underwater lighting market has been bifurcated into new installation and retrofit installation.

Based on application, the global underwater lighting market has been segmented into boat/yacht lighting, swimming pools, fountains, and others.

By region, the global underwater lighting market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Central & South America.

Key Developments

  • In November 2018, OceanLED launched Explore Underwater LED Light Series. The series feature flush-mount underwater LED light that is technologically advanced and highly efficient. The company has launched two models in its Explore series –E3 and E6.
  • In November 2018, Light & Motion launched a new underwater light – the Video Pro 3800. The light features a power level and a battery status indicator. Also, the 3,800-lumen video light is placed in a dome port optic which increases the illumination while reducing the light fall-off at the edges of the beam.
  • In May 2018, T-H Marine Supplies, Inc., acquired the assets of Blue Water LED Enterprises, LLC. Through this acquisition, assets of Blue Water have been moved to T-H Marine headquarters in Huntsville, Alabama, for further assembly and shipping of products.
  • In November 2017, SeaLife launched a new handheld light for viewing fluorescing marine life. The Sea Dragon Mini Fluoro Light emits a powerful blue light beam and is integrated with a dichroic filter which creates the optimal light wavelength and offers 7 Watt/M² brightness at full power.

Regional Analysis

The global market for underwater lighting is estimated to grow at a staggering rate during the forecast period from 2019 to 2025. The geographic analysis of the underwater lighting market has been conducted for North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East & Africa, and Central & South America.

As per MRFR analysis, the North American region is estimated to dominate the global underwater lighting market, followed by Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the rest of the world. Presence of underwater caves and government initiatives to support underwater activities has attributed to the adoption of underwater lighting in this region. Moreover, construction of private swimming pools in hospitality sector has also increased the demand for underwater lights in the region. On the other side, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth due to the increasing construction of amusement parks and fountains in China, South Korea, and Japan.
