Lighting Western Australia Corporate Mondoluce Western Australia Corporate SHOW REPORT Optimism at the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Spring Edition) The four-day, ninth Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Spring Edition), organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), welcomed a record of 1,340 exhibitors from 13 countries and regions, with close to 21,000 buyers from 115 countries and regions. A fairground survey indicated that the industry was optimistic about the lighting market’s outlook for the coming year, with expectations of persistent demand for smart lighting and substantial growth in LED and green lighting sectors. A new Smart Lighting and Solutions zone was introduced to showcase the latest smart lighting systems, remote controls and products. LED and Green Lighting remained the fair’s largest thematic zone. An independent on-site survey during the fair, interviewed more than 373 exhibitors and buyers about their views regarding industry prospects. The survey found that 95 per cent of respondents expect overall sales of products to increase or remain unchanged this year. Respondents consider lighting accessories, parts and components to be the sector with the highest growth (38%), followed by LED & green lighting (18%), household lighting (18%) and smart lighting & solutions (9%). Among traditional markets, respondents are most optimistic about North America, Western Europe and Hong Kong. As for emerging markets, respondents believe the Chinese mainland, ASEAN countries; the Middle East and Latin America have the best growth prospects this year. 92% of respondents believed “smart city and smart home” technology will drive development of the lighting industry in the next two years. The highest growth potential was in household lighting systems that can be controlled by smart phone/tablet applications, and in smart lighting systems primarily with energy-saving purposes for household/ industrial/commercial applications. LED and green lighting has been a focus for global buyers due to declining prices, higher energy efficiency, longer life expectancy as well as growing environmental awareness. The survey found that the respondents expect indoor household lighting (28%), indoor office and commercial lighting (21%) and outdoor lighting (18%) to be the LED application categories with the highest growth potential for the next two years. I was a first-time visitor at the fair, so it was interesting to see the differences between the Spring and the much larger Autumn editions. I have reported on the latter over many years; it is probably the most important fair in Asia. The Spring edition is still growing, as indicated by the figures above and has some way to go before it matches its Autumn cousin. However, it is certainly easier to navigate, due to less crowding and gives opportunities for more in-depth conversations between buyers and sellers. If you haven’t attended the HKILF Spring edition, I suggest that you do. The 2018 Fair will be held 6-8 April 2018. I would also like to remind you of the Autumn edition to be held this year from 27-30 October. BY WARREN JULIAN The registration area gives an idea of the high level of interest in the fair. One of my favourite activities at fairs, including the Spring Edition, is the talks and seminars. This one, held amongst the exhibits explored the rapidly developing Russian and Polish markets.
