Key findings

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 2019, LED sales reached a critical milestone, achieving a record number of sales of more than 10 billion units, including both light sources (bulbs, tubes, modules) and luminaires. Both residential and commercial LED deployment is advancing, and LED sales now exceed fluorescent lamps. As LED costs continue to fall, sales are on track with the SDS, although continued robust growth is needed for LEDs to make up over 90% of sales by 2030.

The aims of the 4E TCP are to promote energy efficiency as the key to ensuring safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable energy systems. As an international platform for collaboration between governments, the 4E TCP provides policy guidance to its members and other governments concerning energy using equipment and systems. The 4E TCP prioritises technologies and applications with significant energy consumption and energy saving potential within the residential, commercial and industrial sectors (not including transport). To meet its aims, the 4E TCP harnesses the expertise of governments, industry, experts and other TCPs for joint research related to the development and deployment of energy efficient equipment.
