Chapter Three: Lighting Market Size and Market Trend Analysis

The lighting market scale of the six major SEA countries which referred to in this Research was estimated USD 4.8 billion in 2015, while LED lighting market is expected to reach USD 1.5 billion. LED lighting has a very high market and import growth rates, and LED lighting penetration rate has gradually increased. Despite the slow down of growth speed in 2015 due to overall economic condition, it is estimated in the next few years, government policies and incentives will continue to spur lighting replacement demands. SEA LED lighting market penetration and import volume is expected to soar. SEA market has gradually become the main export market for Chinese lighting manufacturers.

Chapter Four: Major Manufacturers and Business Strategy Analysis 

Imported Chinese lighting products, can be classified into five types in the SEA lighting industry supply chain:  1. Chinese manufacturers supply lighting components to local lighting manufacturers. 2. Semi-finished products are imported from China and locally assembled. 3. Imported light sources are assembled locally. 4. Chinese manufacturers playing the role of Original Design Manufacturer (ODM) and shipping the products to SEA countries. 5. Chinese manufacturers distribute their products through wholesale channels or construction projects. In general, due to the lack of local manufacturing capability, international brands have the largest market share in SEA countries, followed by major local manufacturers.

Provides major LED, LED lighting and LED industrial lighting manufacturers lists in the six countries.

Three major LED lighting manufacturers in each country, 18 in total, including ODM/OEM and in-house production line, as well as distribution channel analysis.

 

Chapter Five: Major LED Products Analysis (LED Bulbs, Tubes, and Streetlights)

The indoor LED lighting products certification standards and regulations in SEA market are relatively low compared to mature markets, such as Europe and the U.S., with the exception of construction projects. By and large, low lumen and high C/P ratio products are favorable in SEA lighting market. Nevertheless, municipal projects such as streetlight constructions have certain product specifications and energy efficiency effects. In addition, the prices of LED lighting products vary across SEA countries.

Summarizes local manufacturers’ streetlight specifications (take one major manufacturer’s products in each country as example).

 

Chapter Six: Lighting Policies and Regulations

SEA countries have developed national LED standards that are based on IEC regulations to meet each country’s specific needs. In addition, upon the establishment of ASEAN Economic Community, the ASEAN Harmonized Electrical and Electronic Device Regulatory Regime (AHEEERR) will be implemented as guidance for electronic device policies and standards. Electronic devices can be sold in other ASEAN countries upon receiving approval in one of the ASEAN countries. The introduction of uniform standards undoubtedly profits the market of Southeast Asia. Besides, SEA countries have set energy conservation targets and initiated several energy saving projects, which lead to local demands for new energy saving lighting products. This has in turn raised new products quality and performance.

 

Chapter Seven: ASEAN developments and its impact on lighting industry

Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Economic Community is established in 2015, and has become the second global single market aside from EU. ASEAN nations have signed bilateral agreements with China, some of the agreements have lowered tariff or tariff-free on LED products. The lifting of tariffs frees investment and finance flows, plus human resources and transportation facilities and infrastructures. All these can become points of entry into the ASEAN market for Chinese LED lighting manufacturers. Lighting manufacturers have also implemented different strategies, for instance package manufacturers have taken the opportunity to enter local lighting manufacturers supply chain or invested in local factories. Lighting OEMs have also shifted towards new modes of transport that have shortened freight time and distance by directly ship products to emerging markets. Southeast Asian market lighting manufacturers can adapt a single agent, or they can construct local factories and make Southeast Asia their manufacturing hub.

 

Chapter August: General Strategy for Southeast Asian Lighting Market

For these manufacturers which are planning to enter SEA market, it need to choose the right distribution channel based on the brand and channel condition; take initiatives to develop and maintain good relations with government; prepared product certification and examination to meet local market requirements; plan for products’ retail prices and specifications in accordance to local market demand. Manufacturers have to focus on their own market positioning based on their company strategy and every aspect mentioned above. Whether it is high end or low end product positions, distribute through construction project or retail, acting as an brand or ODM / OEM, choosing the right positioning strategy is a key factor in entering SEA market.
