LEDs have become much cheaper than any other traditional lighting currently in use. The key drivers for reducing LED lighting costs are improving the brightness of light generated, in terms of the power consumed (measured in watt) and reducing production costs, per LED product. As the ASPs have been declining, the LED bulb penetration has been gradually increasing, which is further accelerating the growth of the smart light fixture and control market.
