Innovation and technology are two persistent forces that have managed to revamp a lot of industries, and the lighting domain is no different. Over the period of time, the lighting technology has undergone significant modifications, especially in terms of functionality, utility, and practicality. It has become economical and efficient with leading LED lighting manufacturers making the best use of technologies to power highly sustainable commercial lighting solutions.
Market trends reveal that the Indian LED market is one of the booming lighting markets in the world that has embraced various technological advancements. Some of them have revolutionized the way humans interact with electrical appliances.
Here are some of the notable technologies that are revolutionizing the Indian LED Market:
1. Internet of Things (IoT)
Internet of Things, commonly known as IoT, is undoubtedly the most influential and powerful technology of this 21st century. It helps in the development of an interconnected environment and allows the users to control various connected electrical appliances from their smart gadgets. This is the reason why many commercial lighting manufacturers are now powering their LED lighting solutions with IoT.
For instance, Wipro Lighting’s intelligent lighting control system uses Internet of Things for making lighting a part of the city’s digital ecosystem. We are driving the adoption of technologies like LiFi in Asia and providing smart lighting solutions like Human Centric Lighting and Power over Ethernet (PoE) under our IoT inspired Internet of Lighting (IoL)®initiative
LiFi is by all means the technology of the future. It is a novel lighting technology that ensures high-speed, bi-directional, and wireless communication of data through light. It comprises of multiple LED luminaires that form a wireless network and offer a Wi-Fi like experience using the light spectrum. Interestingly, LiFi is not a line-of-sight technology and can work indoors, outdoors, or with dimmed lights.
3. Wireless lighting
In today’s world, we tend to require quick and easy accessibility to everything. Thus, everything including lighting is becoming wireless and smart. Experts assert that the leading LED lighting manufacturers are now embracing technologies like power-line communication that make use of the main power line to carry data “to and from” the indoor light fixtures. This eliminates the need of extra wiring exclusively to power LEDs. Moreover, the call for quick accessibility has also surged the demand of smart lighting controls like dimmers and motion sensors in the Indian LED market.
Lastly, we should not forget that LED lighting itself is a revolutionary technology that has made lighting more sustainable, effective, and efficient. It has surpassed all its traditional counterparts on all fronts and found acknowledgement in almost all the sectors.
