LEDs are taking over the lighting market because of their versatility as well as cost-effectiveness.
LED is an abbreviation for a light-emitting diode that is an electric component which glows in the presence of direct current. Before LED lights, the lights being used which were discovered in 1907, were yellowish. However, in 1994 the LED lighting was commercialized. By then, scientists had found out how to produce the LED light with various colors and at a low cost. By the year 2018, the worldwide LED indoor lighting market was an industry worth 15.87 billion U.S. dollar.
In comparison to their incandescent and fluorescent predecessors, LED lights enjoy a much longer lifespan. According to the market standards, LED lamps have the capacity of lasting up to 40,000 hours as compared to the 10,000 and 1,000 hours for the fluorescent and incandescent lamps, respectively. Furthermore, LEDs save greater amount of energy, having an 800-lumen LED bulb that only consumes 9 to 12 watts, which is about 5 times less than an incandescent bulb.
LED light bulbs get to their maximum luminosity at the moment they are switched on. In addition to that, they can also withstand being continuously switched on and off. They also provide a consistent light source without even reaching their full capacity. They further have versatile applications in homes, stages, and also vehicle lighting.
LED lights are compact that makes them an amazing replacement for the halogen spots as well as down lights that are fixed in ceilings. LED modules that connect to the light sources directly are able to integrate electronic control and turn into fundamental units in the motion sensors.
LED bulbs also function smoothly under the low tension or voltage as well as in low temperatures that enhances the safety of electrical systems in the household.
