Smart street lighting allocates to public street lighting which adapts to movement by cars, cyclists and pedestrians. It is also known to be adaptive street lighting. It is classified into many components such as hardware, services and software. Hardware components include LED arrays, communication modules, sensors, and other components.
The smart street lightnings are also used in thewide area ofstreet light management, environmental monitoring, signals, bridges, video surveillance, road & highways, urban infrastructure innovation, public messaging, internet access, traffic monitoring and smart parking. Some major lighting sources are Light Emitting Diode (LED) lamps, High Intensity Discharge lamps (HID), Fluorescent Lamps, incandescent lamps and Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL). HID consumes large amount of energy & generate heat the rising awareness &the need to decrease the carbon footprints globally, countries have started changing the street lights with smart LED lights.
According to study, “SMART STREET LIGHTING Connectivity Technologies [WiFi, Bluetooth, ZigBee, Powerline Communications and Radio Frequency], Lighting Lamps [Incandescent, HID, LED, Fluorescent and CFL], Network Components [Sensors, Ballasts and Lamp Controllers], Regions and Competitive Landscape Global Market Drivers, Opportunities, Trends, and Forecasts, 2016-2022” some of the major companies that a currently working in the smart street lighting market are Koninklijke Philips N.V, John Cullen Lighting, GE Lighting, Honeywell Lighting, Tech Mahindra, Osram Lighting, International Business Machines Corp.(IBM), SYSKA LED Lights, Acuity Brands Lighting, Inc.,Havells India Ltd., Eveready Industries India Ltd., AxiomTek, Lutron Electronics and CREE, Inc., Bajaj Electricals Ltd.,Cisco Systems Inc, Silver Spring,Hubbell Lighting, Inc., Smart Lighting Engineering (SLE),Schneider Electric S.E,Wipro Lighting,NTL Electronics India Ltd.,Trilliant holdings Inc., Eaton Corporation,Microsoft Corporation, LED Roadway Lighting Ltd.

Based on theproduct type the street lighting market is segmented into smart bulb, luminaries and fixtures. Based on thecommunication technology the street lightningmarket is categorized into wired technology and wireless technology. The wired technology comprises of power over Ethernet, power line communication, hybrid and digital addressable lighting interface. Wireless technology includes Wi-Fi, LPWAN, Zigbee, Hybrid, EnOcean and Bluetooth etc. Based on the lighting control market is segmented into LED drivers & ballasts, sensors, relays, routers & gateways, switches & dimmers and others.
The smart street lighting is determined by better safety & security, low electricity bill, steady innovation in mobile networks, improved adoption for LED lighting lamps, upward popularity of white lights and increasing market for IOT applications. Additionally, some of the restraint characteristics include cost-effective, cyber hazard, lack of attentiveness, attentivelighting regulations & standards and limited LED products accessibility in country. In addition, some new opportunities take account ofrising economics, smart cities, employment and new commerce opportunities for vendors.
Europe is the major market for the smart street lighting followed by Americas. The countries which are foremost in this market are UK, Germany, and US. The forthcoming markets for the smart street lighting are China, India, and Poland owing to the mounting number of smart cities projects in these countries. It is expected that this market will be reached at US$ 39.8 billion, by 2022.
