Increased focus on energy-efficient industrial lighting across the Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan

The Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan regions are focused on finding industrial lighting solutions that are energy efficient and integrated with smart technologies. Electricity consumption is consistently increasing in the region, so countries are looking for ways to increase energy supply and meet growing demands. This is especially true in countries that are now hosting Syrian refugees. The sudden population growth in these countries has also increased electricity usage and demand. Governments have also established targets to reduce electricity intensities and create more energy-efficient systems over the next decade.

One of the most common measures for reducing energy consumption is to replace traditional incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs in buildings and outdoor lighting systems with light-emitting diodes (LED) bulbs, which have a longer life and use less energy. Many countries have also implemented other measures regarding lighting to help reduce electricity consumption. These include imposing additional tariffs on — or completely banning — traditional light bulbs, promoting LED lights for residential and commercial use, and adopting global energy-efficiency standards. These targets have already had a large impact on the commercial lighting industry and will continue to change the lighting projects and technologies used in the future. This is especially true in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region.  The GCC—whose member states include Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates— was an early adopter of LED lighting systems and energy-efficiency programs.
