It is expected that by 2021, the LED technology will penetrate 57 per cent of the lighting market, driven by the government procurement and large scale penetration by the public sector. Private sector, due to its cost economics, will be the early adopter. By 2031,more than 80 per cent of the lighting market will be captured.
So with LED becoming the lighting of choice, a career in this industry will only have brighter prospects.
