January 02, 2001 by Jeff Shepard

Darnell Group (Corona, CA) has published an update to their Global Electronic Ballast Market report. Published December 2000, the report numbers 231 pages and provides an in-depth look at the sizeable $5.8 billion electronic ballast market. Designed to provide a competitive edge, the study includes detailed market forecast tables, a look at future market trends and an inclusive list of company profiles for all the major players in the industry.

The comprehensive report breaks down the electronic ballast market by four major ballasts technologies: cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) ballasts, compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) ballasts, high-intensity discharge (HID) ballasts, and linear fluorescent lamp (LFL) ballasts. In order to give you a better understanding of the ballast market, each of these technologies is further broken down by wattage and application segments. For example, it is shown that the CCFL ballast market share shift from 15.5 percent in 2001 to 22.4 percent in 2006 in the unit market is caused by its fast-growing flat panel monitor application. The report also explores the high market growth of the HID ballast, which is due to its automobile headlamp segment. Additionally, the report includes discussions of energy-efficiency laws and regulations passed by various governmental agencies and the effects these have on the CFL and LFL ballast markets.

Considering that lighting is everywhere, the report carefully examines the worldwide electronic ballast markets, which it breaks into five regions: North America, Europe, Asia, Central and Latin America, and the rest of the world. It then shows how each regional market share is affected by the role electronic ballasts play in the total ballast market, electronic and magnetic.
