Market Segmentation

The global Explosion-Proof Lighting Market has been categorized based on the following categories:

Explosion Proof Lighting Market - By Type

  • High Bay & Low Bay
  • Linear
  • Flood

Explosion Proof Lighting Market - By Light Source

  • LED
  • Fluorescent
  • Others

The LED segment is to dominate the explosion-proof lighting market. LEDs are non-polluting lighting options that have a long lifespan of nearly 50,000-100,000 working hours. The governments are increasingly focusing on energy conservation which drives the segment forward. The maintenance cost of the LEDs is low, ecological, and low cost of systems compared with its conventional counterparts. This is a perfect solution for rough and dangerous applications. 

LED light fittings are a comparatively recent introduction to the hazardous area lighting market.  

Explosion Proof Lighting Market - By Safety Rating

  • Class 1
  • Class 2
  • Class 3

Explosion Proof Lighting Market - By Hazardous Location

  • Zone 1
  • Zone 2
  • Others

By hazardous location, Zone 2 segment is witnessed to have the quickest growth in the explosion-proof lighting market. Across the hazardous locations, lighting protocols like NFPA 101, IBC mandate, and National Electrical Code (NEC) need to be followed to maintain safe luminescence levels through oil and gas facilities, food and beverages industries, and chemical and pharmaceutical. The above-mentioned regulations' presence is favoring the Zone 2 segment growth. 

Explosion Proof Lighting Market - By End-User Industry

  • Oil & Gas
  • Chemical & Pharmaceutical
  • Food & Beverage
  • Mining
  • Energy & Power
  • Others

Based on the end-user industry, the oil and gas segment is holding the largest share throughout the timeline period. The segment has very stringent requirements which comprise very high illuminance levels, color performance, and contrast. The demand for explosion-proof lights is mushrooming as the need for explosion-proof lighting across drilling rings, processing facilities, and offshore platforms, and petroleum refineries. 

The chemical and pharmaceutical industry is witnessed to grow with the highest CAGR growth in the explosion-proof lighting market during the forecast period. Chemicals are handled and processed, light fittings require definite vapor protection.

Regional Analysis

Regionally, Asia-Pacific is dominating the explosion-proof lighting market globally. Different manufacturers of explosion-proof lighting exist in the region. China is leading the market across the region. 676 projects are said to begin their production during 2023 - 2030. In India, the chemical and petrochemical industry is projected to reach USD 300 billion by 2030.

North America is existing as the world's second region exhibiting excellent for explosion-proof lighting. The region is observing flourishing investments in the oil and gas industry, with the increasing number of projects that came up during the mentioned period. The ALASKA LNG project in Alaska and the Corpus Christi LNG project has invested highly with approximately 45 billion USD and 24.5 billion USD. 

Europe is said to have promising growth in the explosion-proof lighting market. The UK, Germany, France, and Italy are major contributors in the region.

Latin America and the Middle East and African regions are predicted to have slothful growth in the explosion-proof lighting market. The sluggish growth in these two regions is caused due to as the involvement of companies in the explosion-proof lighting market is very less. 

The oil and gas industry in the MEA region is scoped to offer profitable opportunities in the explosion-proof lighting market. For example, Kuwait Oil Company made a contract agreement with Halliburton for 597 USD million for fostering its production of crude oil to 100,000 stacks per day. 

The forthcoming oil and gas, and chemical and pharmaceutical projects like Basra Gas Gathering Project in Iraq and Abu Dhabi Northwest Development Project in UAE produce the highest demand for the explosion-proof lighting market.

Top key players in Explosion-Proof Lighting Market

ABB (Switzerland), Eaton Corporation Plc (Ireland), General Electric (US), Hubbell Inc. (US), Osram Licht AG (Germany), Emerson (US), Philips Lighting Holding B.V. (Netherlands), Abtech Ltd (UK), and Adolf Schuch GmbH (Germany), Larson Electronics (US) are the major key players included in the global explosion-proof lighting market. 

In November 2022, Eaton introduced HPLN Ex LED explosion-proof lighting designed to provide strong performance in hazardous situations. The new launch has estimated to grow the market forward. 

Notable Happenings in the global Explosion-Proof Lighting Market

  • On July 07, 2018, Larson Electronics LLC, broadcasted the release of a low voltage explosion-proof end-to-end LED light strip. The light strip generates 1,812 lumens and operates on 12VDC or 24VDC.

COVID-19 Impact on Explosion-Proof Lighting Market

The sudden outbreak of novel corona virus (COVID-19) has severely impacted the explosion-proof lighting market. Due to the pandemic period, key companies like Eaton, and Emerson have experienced critical losses. Governments have chopped off their expenses in diverse areas to determine on developing healthcare infrastructure, and the demand for explosion-proof lighting from national lighting projects is likely to deflate. 

Due to the imposed lockdowns, manufacturing and production units were paused and have experienced radical curb in terms of revenue. 

Post-COVID, the explosion-proof lighting market will retrieve its speed with the extension of production capacities in end-user industries and the rise in the number of oil and gas projects worldwide.
