Ballast Technology Has A Major Impact On The Potential For Energy Savings
July 5, 2009

Bharatbook.com included a new report on "Electronic Ballasts Market Forces and Demand Characteristics" presents detailed and comprehensive analysis of trends driving demand for electronic ballasts.  

Electronic Ballasts Market Forces and Demand Characteristics Reports on (http://www.bharatbook.com/Market-Research-Reports/Electronic-Ballasts-Market-Forces-and-Demand-Characteristics-Fifth-Edition.html ) the market for electronic ballasts for energy-efficient lighting will continue to grow at a rapid rate, but the exact rate and trajectory of growth are being altered by numerous factors. In the near-term, growth for some segments will slow as a result of the current economic downturn. However, the impact of today’s economic troubles will be short-lived and will vary depending on the specific market segment and ballast type being considered. Advances in various lighting technologies, new government regulations and overall demand for energy efficient lighting solutions are more important long-term trends and all are investigated in detail in this analysis. Critical and often subtle underlying changes in demand, such as the increasing use of building automation, are also identified and discussed.

In the next five years, the global lighting industry will go through the biggest period of change since the invention of the incandescent bulb by Thomas Edison. The Edison bulb itself will be effectively outlawed in most countries and for most applications. The compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) that once appeared to be the heir-apparent for general illumination applications will be under severe pressure from environmentalists concerned about mercury content. The era of true solid state lighting will be dawning, primarily powered by ultra-high-efficiency light emitting diodes (LEDs) and to a lesser extent by organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Every type of lighting that is vying to replace the incandescent blub uses electronic ballast. During this transition period, various types of energy efficient lighting will surge in sales. High-efficiency fluorescent tubes, high-intensity discharge (HID) lighting, as well as CFLs and other lighting technologies will see increasing sales, driving growth for sales of the corresponding electronic ballasts.

That will be good news because it will drive a huge surge in ballast sales. It may also be bad news because every type of lighting requires very different types of ballasts. Only companies offering the right ballasts and ballast components will benefit. For makers of electronic ballasts and related components, this is a critical period. Targeting the wrong lighting technology at the wrong time will be disastrous. What started as a political desire to slow global warming has grown into a complex mixture of technological, economic, environmental and political issues. This report delves deeply into each of these areas and identifies the key drivers that will determine the adoption of future generations of lighting technologies. As is true in almost every area of electronics, technology availability and economic viability will be the dominant factors determining the winners and losers in the race to replace the incandescent bulb.

At the same time that lighting technologies are evolving, ballasts are improving and lighting control systems are getting more complex, governments are setting standards and implementing incentives for the use of efficient lighting. While the intent of these programs is almost universally to improve environmental performance, they can also distort markets. It is important for makers of electronic ballasts to understand the complex matrix of government programs to target the best opportunities for near-term as well as longer-term growth. It considers a broad array of technical, economic, environmental and regulatory trends and presents a path to the future for the continued adoption of various energy efficient lighting technologies.
