The latest models come with water- and fire-resistant housings, better sensors and PV panels.
- Commercial applications: Many suppliers are going beyond residential illumination and expanding selections for commercial areas. Recent releases include luminaires for gyms, parks, walkways, subways and billboards.
- Performance upgrades: To meet the requirements of target users, makers are adopting water- and fi re-resistant housings. Several are also installing sensors with a 360-degree detection angle and 10m operating range.
- Solar-powered designs: For outdoor lighting, many enterprises are introducing units with PV panels and photocells. The latest fixtures can store enough power to function for as long as two weeks of overcast weather.
- Aesthetic innovations: Design options are increasing. Apart from traditional round and square types, several makers have released models with housings constructed similar to a celestial body, cartoon character or heart.
- Sales & price projections: Export revenue is expected to jump about 10 percent in the months ahead. Product quotes will climb 5 percent to cover higher manufacturing outlay.
