The installed base of intelligent street lamps is expected to grow to 73 million in 2026




According to Navigant Research, the global smart street lamp market will reach $610 million in 2017 and grow to $6.9 billion in 2026. Market share is expected to increase from 2% in 2017 to around 20% in 2026. It can be seen that LED lighting has become a standard substitute for traditional street lighting in most cities around the world, and intelligent control has become more and more widespread, and is gradually being deployed along with LED lighting.


 


However, Navigant said in the report that intelligent control currently accounts for only 2% of the 2017 streetlight installation base and is not fully utilized. At the same time, the report also believes that the installed base of intelligent street lamps is expected to increase significantly from the current 6.3 million to 73 million in 2026.


 


Clearly, replacing existing streetlights with new, more efficient lighting will be a worldwide trend, and LED lighting has long been considered a better alternative. According to reports, as LEDs become street lighting upgrade technology, the next frontier of intelligent street lighting network is to rapidly increase the deployment of control technology and transform it into an innovative platform for smart cities. Sensors and other technologies are being added to the intelligent street lighting network to provide a host of new urban services, including gunshot detection, air quality monitoring, electric vehicle charging, traffic management and smart parking.


 


Navigant pointed out in the report that installing intelligent control systems while deploying new LED lighting is the cheapest way, which explains why intelligent control measures still lag behind. Smart streetlights may be an important tool for cities to adapt to future energy efficiency requirements, but there are still some obstacles.


 


For example, to alleviate citizens' concerns about surveillance and privacy intrusion, there are still legacy streetlight ownership models in some jurisdictions, the complexity of application projects and the need to raise upfront capital, which are challenges for the smart streetlight market. It is predicted that by 2026 Europe will have the largest installed base of intelligent street lamps, followed by Asia Pacific and North America.

More than 300 cities in the country have arranged smart street lights to meet the outbreak this year.


 


On the domestic front, smart street lights have become hot in the industry in recent years, and more and more traditional enterprises are accelerating their transformation at this node. It is understood that there are two types of enterprises entering the field of smart street lamps in the industry. One is that they have strong R&D strength and channel resources in the field of street lamps. Most of these enterprises develop intelligent lighting control systems through their own intelligent lighting control systems. The overall layout, such as Shanghai Yaming, Zhouming Technology, Sansi Electronics. The other is to have a certain product production base, but lacks the grafting ability on the Internet of Things, so through a third-party platform to achieve cooperation, such as NVC lighting and the Chinese Academy of Sciences hand in hand of the smart street lamp project.


 


Due to its wide distribution and strong performance-based features, the smart street light pole has received much attention from local governments in recent years. According to reports, more than 300 cities across the country have been deploying smart street lights, and this year will be ushered in an outbreak. At present, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has reached a cooperative relationship with many governments and street lamp manufacturers, and is deploying smart street lamps throughout the country. The Chinese Academy of Sciences' smart streetlight project has been piloted in Guangzhou and Foshan.


 


According to reports, this year, the Smart Street Light Pilot Project, which will be hand-picked by the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Guzhen Town Government, Guangdong Base Lighting Co., Ltd., China Dengdu International Street Light City, will also open two demonstration sites in Dengdu Ancient Town. Among them, the one-kilometer "test light road" at the entrance of China's Dengdu International Street Light City has been completed and will be used as a pilot of smart streetlights this year. At the same time, it will also be a main road in the vicinity of the ancient town government, which will be used as a pilot road for smart street lamps in the ancient town. Both goals are expected to be completed in 2017.
