Why Isnít the Promising Smart LED Technology Gaining Popularity?

Bestselling smart lighting products in China are not necessarily those with the best quality, and are often average quality. The fact that they are manufactured in China also doesn’t excite consumers.


Why are not smart LED lighting products making selling if they are the next new technology? According to Ming Tsai, product manager of STF Lighting there are several possible reasons:


1. The demand for smart LED lighting is not present yet 


Popular LED lighting products on the market, such as T8 tubes, T5 integrated tube framework, ceiling lights and downs lights, have low tech entry levels, but are highly accepted by the market because of its frequent spec and performance upgrades. A new product launched on the market should consider whether consumer recognition can catch up within a specific time period. It is not a good strategy to introduce innovations to the market before consumers are ready, since newly-launched products all face the test of time and market.


2. Consumers tend to avoid risk  


Consumers tend to have set mindset, habit and even attachment to certain products. Meanwhile, consumers are worried about purchasing smart LED products and making themselves lab rats. They can only seek help from original manufacturers. Therefore, they tend to avoid trying new products to prevent uncertain losses or risks. 


3. Manufacturers are over-confident about their products 


A lot of manufacturers, especially engineers who are responsible of designing new products, are convinced that their smart LED products are technologically advanced. They do not realize the products launched are not favored by the market. This is caused by engineers overlooking consumers’ demands in their race for product innovation and novelty.


4. Not a necessity


Smart LED lighting product is not a daily essential item at this stage. It’s only a product to improve living quality, or even “spice up” people’s lives. Naturally, this kind of flexible demand makes it difficult to generate high sales volumes. If smart LED lighting products are to be integrated into consumers’ daily life in a similar way as smartphones, smart lighting usage could gain real meaning and proliferate the market.


Future smart LED lighting developments


Smart LED lighting is considered a definitefuture industry development, but is still in its early phases. Its sales and market strategies will need to differentiate from traditional lighting products. Retailers boldly expanding smart lighting product sales will probably become the market’s “martyrs.”
