LED lighting for industrial users is the major growth segment for Dialight. The market is only 3% penetrated and Dialight is the current market leader with an overall share of 32%. The market segments served are diverse but all require durability and safety from their lighting that gives reduced maintenance costs encompassed within a product that promotes sustainability through much lower power usage.

The industrial portion of the total LED market is 3% converted and has a value of £50bn based on a 20 year retro-fit cycle.

We believe that this market will grow at a rapid but non-linear pace as traditional lighting is phased out.

"Switching out from fluorescents to the Dialight LEDs on the derrick saved us about 60% in our energy costs immediately and freed up capacity to power other activities more critical to the operation."
