The lighting market in India is being driven onward by LEDs, according to analysis from Frost & Sullivan.
In a new report, the research organisation sees conventional lighting technologies being replaced by LEDs in the country.
As a result, incandescent, fluorescent and high-intensity discharge methods of illumination are losing ground to the eco-friendly alternative.
"The Ministry for Renewable Energy and the Bureau of Energy Efficiency have also been driving initiatives such as distribution of solar LED lanterns in villages to promote energy-efficient lighting," says Frost research analyst Harish Natesan.
According to the research firm, the heat produced by LEDs is not dissipated into their surroundings, meaning that they operate more coolly than other lighting methods.
The study comes from Frost & Sullivan's Semiconductors growth partnership service.
A global team of research professionals provide insight through this service, addressing the use of semiconductors in sectors such as consumer electronics, automotive and healthcare.
