Energy-efficient floor lamps gain prominence

Suppliers are adopting energy-saving light sources in response to stringent export regulations in key markets.



  • Power-saving light source: More makers are adopting low-wattage bulbs such as CFLs and LEDs to meet the stricter environmental standards implemented in the US and the EU. Shipments of the latter models to these locations have steadily increased in recent years as products consume up to 90 percent less electricity.
  • Shift to alternative markets: A number of small and midsize companies are turning to areas where export regulations are less stringent. The Middle East and Africa top the list of substitute destinations.
  • Multifunction & smart units: Floor lamps that can be converted for desktop use are available. They may come with radios and clocks. Intelligent designs have presetting features, brightness controls and LED compatibility.
  • Novelty contours: Versions that mimic trees are gaining ground. Such models are 5 to 10 percent more expensive than conventional releases.
  • Price projection: Quotes are anticipated to rise by 5 to 10 percent in the next half-year due to swelling material and labor expenses.
