Intelligent Street Lighting Systems

The Intelligent Street Lighting Systems market research report delivers current market analysis plus a five-year market and technology forecast.  

Intelligent Street Lighting Systems: Neural Networks for Cities of the Future 

This market analysis report examines the dynamics of the global street lighting marketplace.  Lights are ubiquitous and are found illuminating infrastructure such as parking lots, campuses, parks, and streets.  Street lighting accounts for a significant percentage of a city’s total energy costs.  Cities are turning to street light networks to connect their cities and become smart in a cost effective manner.

Intelligent Street Lighting Systems: An IoT Change Agent for Smart CitiesA typical lighting control system consists of software platforms and applications plus a network of functionally and/or geographically distributed intelligent devices used for automated control of light fixtures.  Software includes light management platforms, embedded control software, and a wide range of software, that is typically sold bundled with a system.  This software can address application needs, such as traffic management, smart parking, environmental monitoring, various public safety applications such as gunshot triangulation or video analysis, advertising signage, EV charging, and smart waste management.

The street lighting controls market has only penetrated a small percentage of the global street lighting installed base.  Intelligent street lights are a transformative way for municipalities and utilities to manage their lighting networks while delivering significant energy and maintenance savings.  Beyond saving money, cities that choose to go past basic controls and utilize their network as a smart city platform can gain enhanced capabilities and functionality.  Despite a major downturn from the effects of COVID-19 in 2020, the future remains bright for the intelligent street lighting market and ARC predicts significant growth for this market over the forecast period.  

Intelligent Street Lighting Systems Market Strategic Issues

Intelligent Street Lighting Systems Market TrendsIn addition to providing a five-year market forecast, the Intelligent Street Lighting Systems market research provides detailed quantitative current market data and addresses key strategic issues as follows.

Strategic Issue for Buyers: Use Intelligent LED Street Lighting as an IoT Change Agent in Smart Cities

A smart city is one that has undergone a digital transformation, where communication infrastructure has been deployed via an intelligent network to address challenges within city communities.  These challenges include parking, traffic, transportation, street lighting, water and waste management, safety, and security.  Intelligent LED street lighting networks are proving to be a transformational force in smart cities, providing an affordable option for cities to deploy an IoT platform that is delivering real quantifiable results.

Strategic Issue for Vendors:  Address Cybersecurity from an IoT Perspective

Control systems with a multitude of microprocessors and networking components are at the heart of every smart lighting network.  A cyber compromise of any one of these control system elements could have serious consequences, including operational disruptions and safety incidents.  As lighting control becomes ubiquitous, the cyber threats go well beyond controlling lights themselves such as changing stoplights or cutting out airport runway lights or causing a city’s streets to go dark, which are life-threatening situations.  The other risks are that hackers could use the billions of devices connected to lighting networks to penetrate peripheral networks for data breaches, hijack security and life safety systems, or launch massive DDOS attacks or other malicious activity such as penetrating the smart grid.  Recent developments in IT, automation, and business processes are increasing the likelihood that such an event will occur. Industrial IoT is disrupting traditional security practices, and addressing the new requirements of IoT architectures from a cyber-secure perspective will be a crucial component of success in a connected future.        

Strategic Issue for Everyone:  The Effects of the COVID-19 Global Pandemic

As we enter uncharted territory with the economy shutting down to fight the spread of the coronavirus, this is going to have a dramatic effect on the market outlook for 2020 and beyond.  Cities’ revenue streams are gone, such as public transportation and parking fees, and tax revenues from businesses such as restaurants are depreciated, and their budgets for projects will be diminished. 

On the bright side, digital transformation and the benefits of building networks for data connectivity through intelligent street lighting systems may actually become more appealing.  The concepts of autonomous drones for contactless delivery, or the ability to utilize networked IP cameras to enforce social distancing or even detection of residents with fevers is possible with this technology.  We do not know what the outcome of this global pandemic will be, but ARC believes that after an initial severe drop in 2020 revenues, the market will bounce back in the following years of the forecast.
