Security Lighting Procurement Category Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2014 Security lighting products have a buyer power score of 3.2 out of 5. This score reflects a mix of favorable and hindering conditions existing in the market that have influenced buyer power in the three years to 2014. During the period, strengthening business activity across major downstream industries and rising input costs have lifted up prices. Buyers in various economic sectors, particularly construction and manufacturing, have revived their production capacity and construction projects. "As buyers have increasingly started investing in upgrading their facilities with more technologically advanced lighting fixtures, demand for security lights has picked up, causing prices to follow suit," according to business research analyst, Anna Son. In the three years to 2017, surging construction activity will facilitate demand for security lights, while rising raw material prices will raise input costs, prompting prices to rise. Still, rising import penetration will warrant strong domestic price competition.

Despite rising product prices, low product specialization and switching costs buoy buyer negotiation power. There are multiple types of security lights in the market, including motion activated, dusk-to-dawn and solar security lights. While there are some exceptions among specialized products, most security lights are homogenous across suppliers by class. As a result, low product specialization and a plethora of viable suppliers provide buyers with a stronger hand in price negotiation and make it easier to switch suppliers without fear of incurring significant financial losses.

Alternatively, the lack of substitutes and rising market share concentration diminish buyer power. In the three years to 2014, market concentration has increased slightly as large suppliers have acquired smaller competitors, thus gaining greater control over market prices. "While more players are projected to enter the market, consolidation activity among suppliers will likely continue as they seek to expand their product offerings and customer base in the next three years," says Son. Growing market share concentration can hurt buyer power by lessening price competition. Major vendors include Koninklijke Philips NV, Acuity Brands Inc., Cooper Industries Ltd. And Hubbell Inc.
