Global plasma lighting market grows very fast in horiculture

Plasma lighting systems are electrodeless gas-discharge lamps that produce light directly from an arc discharge operated under high pressure. The arc discharge is activated by a high-frequency electromagnetic field generated externally to the lamp. This is different from conventional high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps which have electrodes within the arc tube that turn current to keep the arc discharge.

Plasma lighting systems are also known as electrodeless HID systems. They are marketed under different names including light-emitting plasma (LEP), high-efficiency plasma (HEP), or advanced plasma lighting (APL) systems. 

According to the market report by Research and Markets, the plasma lighting market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% from the year 2021 to 2026.
The plasma lighting market volume estimation from the year 2021 to 2026
Basically, plasma lighting can reduce power consumption by about 70% compared with metal halide or soldium HID lights, which is one of the factors to drive the market to grow.

Europe has dominated a significant market share of plasma lighting in horticulture, this market trend continues to grow when European countries keep promoting plant factory. A report by Lighting Research Center shows that above 50% of farmers use auxiliary lighting to grow corps, among them, at least 25% adopt plasma lighting in their farms.

Currently, in horticulture market, the plasa lighting sysytems are competiting much with general LED lightnings. For the time being, comparatively more LED lights are adopts because the LED lighting systems are more cost-effective in terms of energy efficiency and maintenance. It is estimated that plasma lighting will grab more and more market share in horticulture after further performance and cost down is achieved.

Key players in the plasma lighting market include LUMA Group (Luxim, US), Ceravision (UK), Hive Lighting (US), Ka Shui International Holdings (China), and Green De Crop (China).
