The global architectural lighting market size is expected to reach USD 12.2 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The market is expected to witness significant growth owing to rising demand for aesthetic lights for decorating homes and commercial spaces such as offices, malls, shops, restaurants, and hotels. Furthermore, the transition of lighting bulbs from fluorescent to LEDs provides flexibility to a lighting designer in creating a variety of lighting fixtures for commercial and residential building.

The architectural lights also help to highlight each corner and space of a large room, such as museum, movie theater, restaurant, and office by accentuating the aesthetics of interior and exterior of the building. This, in turn, is driving the market over the forecast period.

The rapidly growing construction of the commercial building and residential building owing to urbanization and globalization across developing countries such as Brazil, India, China, and South Africa, is one of the major contributing factors boosting the demand for architectural lighting. Growing investment in construction projects at smart cities and Special Economic Zone (SEZ), Free Trade Zone (FTZ), and Export Processing Zone (EPZ) are further expected to increase demand for outdoor as well as an indoor lights. Moreover, smart city projects are providing an impetus to the growing demand for technology-enabled architectural lighting solutions, thereby driving the growth of the market.

The lighting industry has evolved, which has shaped the customer perception of using light for decorative purposes. Moreover, a well-lit environment contributes significantly towards improving the safety and security of the environment.
