Lighting for Health and Wellbeing Conference: The Scientific Case for Human-centric Lighting
The Lighting for Health and Wellbeing Conference is mere days away, but a blog by analyst Jared Saunders brings to light the essential topics and latest research the LED & Lighting Network team looks forward to sharing with its audience. Read through and register to join us in Newport Beach.
The Lighting for Health and Wellbeing Conference will take place July 18th in Newport Beach, CA. The conference will feature sought-after experts from the field of human-centric lighting. Information on the research and science driving the industry will be presented by speakers like Mariana Figueiro, Ph.D, Director of the Lighting Research Center; Dr. David E. Blask, Head of the Laboratory of Chrono-Neuroendocrine Oncology at Tulane University; Dr. Satchidananda Panda, Professor, Regulatory Biology Laboratory at The Salk Institute; and many more.
With so much excitement about this market and its potential, Strategies Unlimited’s Director of Research, Philip Smallwood, will also be providing insights on how we view the potential for this market. The analysis presented will include:
1. The Total Addressable Market (TAM): The most likely applications where this kind of lighting will be installed include healthcare, educational, and office buildings. Having a better understanding of these industries, including technological installed base, business dynamics, and an understanding of potential return on investments will allow us to better understand the potential growth of the market. There are billions of sockets out there, but it’s important to understand that they are not all created equal!
2. What kind of technology is going to be utilized where: As our understanding of the impact light has on us expands, we will see an evolution in the technologies offered to implement the “right” kind of light based on the application. For example, different technologies may be required when installing light in an office space where the main goal is to increase productivity vs. installing lighting to decrease the negative impact on night shift workers.
3. Questions you should be asking: There is a lot of hype behind this market, as industry players look for specific niches to fill and to differentiate themselves from the competition. Asking the right questions of where, how, and why the market could grow is key to avoiding needless risks and properly investing for future growth.
There is still time to register for the Lighting for Health and Wellbeing Conference. The day will include tabletop exhibitors, such as Seoul Semiconductor, Circadian Light, USAI Lighting, and more. The day includes lunch and an evening networking event. The full schedule is available online. We hope to see you in Newport Beach!
