Building the future with environmental and smart lighting

The lighting DIY market is booming than ever, particularly in North America and Western Europe. Decorative items are no longer limited to Christmas lighting but a variety of domestic lighting products, such as track lights, linear lights, spotlights of novelty designs are included.

Another trend for the industry is highly linked with environmental concerns. Lighting products of higher energy efficiency and longer lifetime are preferable. On one hand, many countries, including Canada, Australia, the EU, the US, and the Chinese mainland have already phased out imports and sale of most incandescent light bulbs. On the other hand, energy-efficient items such as integrated electronic compact fluorescent lamps and LED lamps and lighting apparatus are in demand. 

As for future developments, smart lighting systems, the technology to connect different devices and appliances at home, lighting apparatus as well as mobile devices by a smart platform, are shaping the trend of smart living style.

Distinctive thematic zones for easy sourcing

Responding to the development trend of smart living, a brand-new thematic zone, Innobuild, will be presented in the fair. It will introduce ground-breaking initiatives for building technology and showcase practical construction tools, as well as smart and green building materials and hardware.

The Hall of Aurora will continue to be the spotlight of the fair, showcasing eye-catching and forward-looking quality lighting products and technology from some 200 top-notch brands around the world. Interior designers, lighting architects and retailers who look for high quality and trendy lighting products will revel in its ample offerings.

Another highlight of the fair is the Smart Lighting & Solutions Zone, which will return to showcase advanced lighting systems, remote control and smart lighting solutions, with a special focus on IoT lighting supply chain, organized by the Shanghai Pudong Intelligent Lighting Association. The zone will showcase innovative elements such as IoT platforms, artificial intelligence and smart lighting systems from renowned industry leaders such as Tuya and Broadlink. The Horticultural Lighting Zone launched last year will also return to showcase a wide range of grow lights and garden lights.

The upcoming Spring Lighting Fair will continue to present a wide assortment of smart, energy-saving lighting products, systems and accessories in different specialty zones by their applications, namely residential lighting, technical lighting and urbanand& architectural lighting, together with advertising display lighting, avenue of chandeliers, commercial lighting, decorative lighting, and lighting accessories.
