The top three revenue contributing application segments are discussed below:

Global general lighting market: General lighting is the most popular segment as it is most widely used in applications such as homes, offices, factories, streets, stadiums, and theaters. Major players in the market space, such as Philips, GE Lighting, OSRAM, and Cree, primarily focus on this segment. Market research analysts at Technavio predict the global general lighting market to post growth at a CAGR of around  6% between 2017 and 2021.

The introduction of LEDs is one of the key driving forces behind growth of the global general lighting market. LEDs are highly preferred by customers because albeit their high initial purchase cost, their maintenance cost is very low. They last significantly longer than traditional incandescent bulbs, consume very less electricity, and are environment-friendly,” says Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on lighting.

Global automotive lighting market: The automotive lighting segment is experiencing the fastest growth among the three segments. There are many reasons contributing to this, such as the implementation of LED in automotive lighting, which is a major development propelling growth of the global automotive lighting market. LEDs in car lights bring down the service and maintenance costs, and due to their better and brighter luminescence than incandescent bulbs, safety on roads is ensured.

 Global backlighting market: The growth of the global backlighting market will be driven by the growing needs and requirements of customers in display technology. OLED (organic light-emitting diode) is the next evolution of LED technology. It is much sought after as it offers clearer and crisper images than LED or other technologies. The global backlighting market is projected to account for a revenue of more than USD 29 million by the end of the forecast period according to the industry analysts at Technavio.
