New directives, growing consumer awareness, and concerns about the impact of carbon emissions on the environment are driving the overall market for energy efficient lighting to a value of £200m in 2007.
These are the findings of the report from AMA Research, which said it has witnessed 'healthy levels of growth over the last two years'.
Other factors, highlighted by the report, that have benefited the market include increasing energy costs, and better education.
"In addition, a number of schemes and subsidy programmes aimed at promoting energy efficiency in the home and improvements to products, both in terms of design and in technical performance, have also stimulated strong market growth," the report said.
It continued: "Product development may lead to a change in the market structure in the medium-term, and LEDs, which are widely considered to be one of the most promising 'pending' technologies, are expected by some to 'reach or exceed the level of CFLs in the UK market' soon after 2010."
Energy Efficient Market – UK 2007 reviews the market in terms of lamps and luminaires, and focuses on both the domestic and non-domestic markets.
The report covers distribution of energy efficient lamps and luminaires, and forecasts future growth rates.
