Session Survey
Since LEDs were introduced to the lighting market, it adapted and eventually thrived. Various predictions have been made about the future impact of SSL (most of them wide of the mark) and the industry has become accustomed to thinking that another equally “disruptive” technology is perpetually imminent. This hasn’t quite happened; instead, a potent mix of unforeseen factors – including but not limited to technological developments – have created an environment more complex and chaotic than was foreseen, yet filled with opportunities for those brave and creative enough to recognize and capitalize on them. This talk will address the current state of the industry – important economic trends; unrecognized and surprising growth areas; the impact of ESG and regulatory action – and suggest strategies for coping with uncertainty and conflicting data and predictions.
