Lighting sales by type in the Sustainable Development Scenario, 2010-2030


Lighting is one of the few technologies on track with the Sustainable Development Scenarios

In 2018, LED sales reached a critical milestone, achieving the same share of global residential sales as less-efficient fluorescent lamps (40%). LED deployment is also progressing for commercial lighting and outdoor applications, especially for linear LEDs to replace fluorescent lamps. As LED costs continue to fall, sales of LEDs are on track with the SDS, although continued robust growth is needed to make up over 90% of sales by 2030.
