GLOBAL CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT LIGHTING MARKET
- Construction equipment lighting market is dominated by aftermarket players, as some OEM’s don’t offer lighting placements as required for different operations.
- By switching from convectional lighting (halogen) to LED’s lights vehicles are saving 50% energy.
- In work area’s like underground operations, LED lamp stands will be used for better illumination along with the minimum vehicle lighting available.
Lightning in construction machineries plays a major role in night on-site operations and in Urban areas. As it is a popular method for reducing the traffic impacts of lane closures, expediting project completion dates, and (in hot climates) providing a more comfortable environment for workers.
Ordinary headlamp lighting is intended to provide illumination for vehicles during normal street and highway operations. The illumination levels are usually less than 20% of what is required for work operations. In addition, the headlamps on vehicles are also generally unsuitable for production lighting. As a result, it is always necessary to have side lights and flood lights mounted on every corner of equipment. Night work operations pose special challenges due to reduced visibility. Adding to this challenge, adverse atmospheric conditions such as fog and wet pavement can exacerbate the risk of night work.
Most of the construction machineries have front halogen headlights and OEM’s prefer LED working lights mounted on all the four directions to have proper view while operation and will be power saving, as machine run-time will be high. Lights will be placed at different positions like – Main headlights, working lights, side lights, rear lights, parking lights, brake lights, direction indicators, cabin lights and hazard beacons. The requirement of lights in different positions is more, the aftermarket products have high demand as the placement of lights cab be customized for different work sites.
Poor lighting conditions in work of loader operators with significant challenges. This is true for operations underground, at twilight or at night. OEM’s are tending to the new adaptive working lighting for their machines which addresses this issue and increases safety and comfort. Using an intelligent light control system, adaptive working lighting evenly illuminates the entire working area. With conventional lighting systems, machine operators have to compromise on the brightness of the headlights.
On full beam, the light is reflected on steel machine parts or on the drop sides of trucks, which creates glare and shadows. And when light output is reduced, visibility deteriorates. Adaptive working lighting solves this problem with the help of sensors, the light output automatically adjusts itself to the position of the lift arm and the working equipment and to the articulation angle of the machine and. This will be advantage to customers as they will be attracted to the new technology like this for better productivity in work area.
GLOBAL CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT LIGHTING MARKET SIZE AND FORECAST
Global Construction Equipment Lighting market is growing at XX% CAGR and has a market size of $XX Billon in 2025.
Carlson launched new LED Blade Light, which has the ability to mount on a wide range of equipment including rollers, pavers, milling machines and more. Low profile and directional light create safe working environments by eliminating dangerous glare while illuminating positions and mobile equipment.
Volvo’s front and rear work lights and optional high-mounted LED lights help illuminate the site and stairway lights are push-button operated from inside the cab to light machine exits and also from ground level when going to work in dark environments. They offer Optional LED lighting package for increased illumination.
Liebherr has developed innovative lighting options for their X-Power wheel loaders – adaptive working lighting and the Liebherr key with remote control.
Komatsu’s LED headlights provide rapid and strong lighting with low energy consumption. The colour temperature of the new lights is more powerful than xenon. and with LED technology is considered very reliable, resulting in LED headlights having a long service life. These lights are tolerant of vibrations and are enclosed in a sturdy casing. Their headlight glass has greater durability than standard glass while also exhibiting good heat dispersion properties.
