Rexton Technologies, which recently inaugurated the region’s largest light fittings manufacturing facility in Sharjah Airport International Free (SAIF) Zone, Sharjah, is all set to  embrace the futuristic LED lighting approach.

The LED lighting industry has seen a paradigm shift, propelled by the exponential urban expansion expected over the next decade and the drive towards ever bigger energy efficiency, said a statement.

The increasing consumer demand for energy-efficient lighting systems, reduction in prices of LEDs and high penetration of LEDs as a light source are expected to drive the growth of this market.

The GCC lighting market is currently witnessing a strong growth which can be attributed to factors such as growing environmental concerns, increasing infrastructural investments along with government initiatives focused on promoting the usage of efficient lighting systems.

Industry reports indicate that the demand for LED technology in GCC is expected to grow by 18 to 20 per cent annually. The demand is fuelled by government›s smart lighting initiatives undertaken across all emirates.
