The lighting industry in India is 95 billion rupee worth, growing steadily at 12% CAGR and is expected to maintain this growth rate over the next decade. The growth is being fuelled by rapid development of infrastructure & real state, exponential growth of middle class income and the upsurge of the retail boom across India. At the same time the lighting industry has undergone a huge transformation in terms of technology upgradation, new product innovation, creative lighting design and new areas of application. In addition there has been a strong emphasis on energy conservation and sustainability as lighting alone consumes 18% of the energy generated in India.
