Our world is changing. Population growth, resource challenges and digitalization require immediate action in order to meet the needs of our customers and planet. The world needs more light, more energy efficient light, and more connected digital light. The demand for lighting will grow dramatically in the years ahead as the global population heads toward 10 billion by 2050, with two-thirds of the world’s population living in cities. This, coupled with increasing wealth, especially in emerging markets, will mean a surge in demand for lighting. Currently, there are approximately 50 billion light points globally – this is expected to grow to over 59 billion by 2030.
