US LED Market was valued at USD 10.55 Billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 24.57 Billion by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 9.85% during the forecast period, 2023 – 2031. The growth of the market is attributed to the declining prices of LED products, growing demand for energy-efficient lighting systems and stringent regulations by government bodies.
LEDs have been experiencing drastic economic and technological development being the foremost source of lighting. The US is among the major innovators, adopters, and investors in the global LED market. The LED technology has an enormous scope of improvement and innovation. Nowadays, the quality of light is one of the important driving factors among the regional manufacturers, as energy savings are no longer the foremost driver.
The US Department of Energy (DOE) claimed that owing to the rising technological innovation, energy savings from LED lighting is likely to reach 569 terawatt-hours annually by 2035, which is equal to the annual output of more than 92 1,000-megawatt power plants, if DOE Lighting R&D program goals are accomplished.
The Covid-19 pandemic had an unpleasant impact on the US LED. The production has been on halt and reduced adoption of LED lighting from the residential sector in the country. The market suffered significant loss; however, the government’s steps and strategies have helped to neutralised the situation. This pandemic has encouraged the key players to implement advance technologies to overcome these challenges and expand the market growth.

US LED Market Segment insights
The luminaires segment is projected to constitute a large market share
Based on type, the US LED market is segregated into lamps and luminaires. The luminaires segment is expected to account for a key share of the market during the forecast period. They are widely used in industrial and commercial segments. New installations primarily drive the demand for LED luminaires. The segment includes lights used in high bays, streetlights, track lights, downlights, troffers, and suspended pendants for various applications.
LED luminaires deliver more light per output power. However, lamps segment is anticipated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to their rising adoption in residential sectors. These lamps have various advantages over incandescent lamps, including energy efficiency, robustness, and right temporal stability.
Indoor segment is expected to register a substantial CAGR
Based on application, the US LED market is divided into indoor and outdoor. The indoor segment accounts for a key share of the market and is estimated to propel even further over the forecast period owing to growing product adoption as an alternative to High-Intensity Discharge (HID), fluorescent, and incandescent lamps. The use of LED lights in retail stores and malls, offices, hospitals, and education buildings has increased in the country.
However, outdoor segment is projected to expand at a robust pace during the forecast period owing to shifting focus of public policy interventions and municipality support along with government initiatives, such as the LightSavers program undertaken by The Climate Group.
Commercial segment is expected to dominate the market
Based on sector, the US LED market is divided into residential, commercial, industrial, retail, hospitality and health care. Commercial segment is anticipated to expand at a robust CAGR during the forecast period. Demand for LED troffers and downlights are anticipated to boost the market growth over the coming years. The commercial end-use mainly includes museums, galleries, and other exhibition lighting applications that primarily use projectors, reflectors and downlights etc.
However, residential segment is projected to expand at a robust pace during the forecast period owing to adoption of LED A-type lamps which has increased exponentially due to reduced product prices and increased subsidy programs by governments and agencies.
