Replacing traditional HID sports lighting with LED stadium lights is very important to save lighting and maintenance costs
United States, December 29, 2020/PRNewswire/-According to LED supplier HISHINE Lighting, LED lighting has already occupied the residential lighting field and is now expected to take over very high-output stadium and stage lighting. A study by Research and Markets pointed out that “the stadium lighting market is expected to grow by nearly US$600 million by 2025 to reach US$1.5222 billion.” Chino Wong, CEO of HISHINE Lighting, further said: “Despite the strong growth of 77% of the US dollar, The lower price point of each lamp may be equivalent to a unit volume increase of more than 65%."
The driving factor for adoption is cost per lumen. Lumen measures light, while traditional watt measurements use only power. The increase in cost per lumen is driven by more efficient LEDs and cheaper lamps. LEDs in large outdoor lamps have dropped from an average power of 80 lumens in 2018 to an average power of 130 lumens in 2020. The cost of this watt in high-output lighting equipment is falling, and the current market price in 2020 is $1.36/watt. Even if a lot of energy is saved, the upfront cost is still an obstacle to entry. Now, with high efficiency, cost reduction and versatility, it is not surprising that LED lights have occupied the world of stadiums and stage lighting.
LED lights entered the professional sports market a few years ago, and their presence in this market is constantly increasing. The NFL Bowl game introduced LED lighting in 2015. In the same year, Major League Baseball began to use LED lighting. “LED Magazine” stated: “San Diego Padres’ Petko Park is one of the first stadiums to switch to LED lights in 2016.” “MLB needs a very bright sports field with a minimum distance of 250 foot candles in the field. The minimum is 200 foot candles.” In comparison, the average parking lot is about 10-20 foot candles. In places such as department stores or car showrooms, even the bright indoor retail lighting can be as high as 80-100 foot candles, which is still less than half of Major League Baseball stadiums. As sports organizations such as FIFA and the Premier League begin to adopt LED lighting in many events and stadiums, the trend of LED stadium lighting has been growing. These major sports organizations may be the driving force behind LED stadium lighting, but their use is more widespread.
For local communities, universities and high schools, this change is even more obvious. The common sports and stadium lighting currently found in local schools and fields is 1500 watts of metal halide. HISHINE Lighting now offers LEDs to replace 500-watt Stadium lights. This light produces approximately 64,000 lumens at a beam angle of 30 degrees. Independently certified performance by UL and DLC. The light and ballast save about 1050 watts of power, which can save 70% of energy. In addition, it also has the advantages of instant connection and no maintenance. Chino Wong of HISHINE Lighting continued: “For areas with limited human resources and tight budgets, short maintenance time and long service life are important.” For these areas, the LED penetration rate in 2021 may exceed 80%.
The use of LED stadiums and sports lights goes far beyond sports. Rodeos and rope arenas, high school and university sports venues, racetracks, concert arenas, etc. can all use sports lighting. With the decline in the cost of LED lighting and the continuous improvement of efficiency, LED lighting has seen rapid growth. The last area is super-large lighting, and now it seems that LED has already occupied this market.
In January 2020, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) issued an updated ANSI C136.18 to use LED lights on the road. The same stadium lights for high altitude applications can also be used in high mast applications on the road. Since both require precise, clean and low-glare lighting, the penetration rate of this technology should be fast, creating a whole new market.
HISHINE Lighting, we provide efficient LED stadium lights to meet the needs of different types of LED lighting in stadiums (soccer, basketball, baseball, tennis, football) and arena applications, and maintain sufficient lighting to illuminate these stadiums . At the same time, it reduces light scattering and causes light pollution. LED lights can save up to 90% of energy consumption and have a service life of more than 100,000 hours. The high-quality radiator reduces heat generation, thereby reducing the load on the air conditioner. Our durable stadium lighting can also be used for outdoor and indoor LED lighting, such as indoor stadiums, warehouses, parks, streets, loading ports, airports, safe areas, highways.
