WHY SUPPLIERS EMBRACED THE IoT AT LFI 2017
The accelerating adoption of LED lighting, spurred by advantages in safety, cost, durability & longevity, is on target to dominate the global industry by 2020, with several leading manufacturers already generating over 60% revenue from LED related products.
Gooee’s ‘full-stack’ operating platform uniquely enables lighting companies to develop a range of smart lighting products & offer service-drive solutions.
Whilst the increase in adoption is exciting, growing international LED supplier competition – driven by new materials & manufacturing processes – as well as, large supplier mergers & acquisitions, are pushing LED prices downwards & pressuring LED profit margins. An effect of this trend is the invalidation of many traditional OEM business models based on channel dominance and replacement sales.
The IoT, however, provides lighting suppliers with an unprecedented & unique opportunity to generate new revenue streams, across almost every customer vertical. Disruptive sensory/data enhanced IoT applications, when considered in terms of the ubiquitous nature of lighting in built environments, affords transformative opportunities, including the creation of new business models & the diversification of revenue streams, based on more circular, service-based business models, often dubbed “LaaS” or “Lighting as a Service.”
