Current government is focusing on becoming energy surplus in the near future and has focused on establishing both renewable and non-renewable sources based power plants. But, this has also led to an emphasis on minimizing the power consumption via adopting the latest technologies and making it available for common people. LEDs is one of the latest technologies which has become much more affordable in the past 2–3 years. Via this trend, the market is expected to replace many traditional light sources in the next 5 years. – KR Sreenivasan, CEO of Infoholic Research.

Most of the LEDs utilized in India are imported either from China or other South Asian countries because of high capital investment and cheap labor cost in those countries. However, the LED products market has been witnessing exponential growth in India owing to government support not only in terms of favorable trade policies but also with subsidies on products to help companies create their market in India via increasing affordability. Decreasing LEDs price and continuous support from the government are expected to help in replacing the halogen and incandescent lamps with LEDs in the Indian market.” – Somnath Das, Senior Consultant of Infoholic Research.
