G lobal Packaged LED Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2022 – 2031

Packaged LED Market Share 2031

The global packaged LED market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 27 billion by the end of 2031 by growing at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 7 billion in the year 2021. The growth of the market can primarily be attributed to the increasing consumption of electricity worldwide. For instance, the world’s total final consumption of electricity was estimated to be ~80.2 EJ in the year 2019.

Packaged LED Market Size Overview Chart

A plastic casing that carries an LED chip and phosphor is called an LED package. The LED chip, being a semiconductor material that emits light (blue light) and this light is converted into green and red wavelengths by phosphor material. This mixture results in the white light that is emitted by the LED package. LED packaging is done to protect the LED chips and lead wires from coming in direct contact with the outside environment and also to secure the diode chip with LED phosphors and epoxy silicone resin. The demand for packaged LED is on the rise amongst the building sector, which in turn, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global packaged LED market during the forecast period. According to a recent data, LEDs are currently used in an estimated 6 billion commercial buildings in the United States.

Global Packaged LED Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Compliance with New Regulations Mandating the Use of High-Efficacy LED Lamps – In order to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 that ensures that all countries sell only LEDs by 2025 has increased the use of packaged LEDs. For instance, the LED accounted for ~51% of global lighting sales in 2020, with integrated LED luminaires making up an increasing share.

  • Rising Demand for LED Lightning Products – The demand for LEDs is escalating owing to its affordability as well as the wider choice of innovative products it makes available for consumers. This rise in the demand for LEDs is responsible for boosting the demand for packaged LEDs. For instance, as per 2021 statistics, more than 40 billion cumulative sales of LED lighting products were recorded in the past five years, generating economies of scale.

  • Increased Demand in the Automotive Industry -As per estimates, in 2020 in the United States, ~42,000 deaths were registered on the road, out of which almost 50% of all accidents occurred at night despite 25% less traffic on the road due to limited visibility. The packaged LED enables significantly smaller vehicle headlights with new dynamic functions and high luminance.

  • Increasing Number of Digital Signage –For instance, in 2020, digital signage aided in increasing the average purchase amount by 29% and also resulted in 45% customer satisfaction, creating 32% growth in repeat buyers in the United States.


  • Development of Inefficient LEDs Attributed to the Lack of Common Open Standards
  • Lack of Coordination among Various Component Suppliers
  • Limited Adoption of LED Packaging Owing to High Prices

The global packaged LED market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by type into F5, COB, SMDs, high power. Out of these segments, the SMDs segment is anticipated to garner the largest revenue by the end of 2031, backed by its excellent versatility and its growing industrial demand, along with its rising usage of LEDs in hotels to curb the carbon emission level worldwide. For instance, LED lighting consumes 40% less power than fluorescents and 80% less power than incandescent bulbs to produce the same amount of light, and the hotel industry is expected to reduce carbon emissions by 66% and 90% by 2030 and 2050, respectively.
