The global ambient lighting market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.84% during the forecast period to reach US$130.160 billion by 2027, from US$76.751 billion in 2020.

Ambient lighting involves a technique that uses color, temperature, and brightness to create a comfortable and even level of light throughout a space. Ambient lighting is used in the automotive industry as interior lighting in displays and indicators, illumination, and accent lighting. Displays and indicator lighting help drivers obtain information with the use of color, luminance, and luminance uniformity. Furthermore, ambient lighting is used in retail stores to make customers feel comfortable and shop for products easily in a well-lit environment. Moreover, ambient lighting is used in hospitality industries particularly in hotel rooms to make customers comfortable and relaxed. Additionally, recent trends have increased the use of ambient lights in homes for a comfortable atmosphere, and in some cases, it is used as contemporary decoration.

An increase in demand for ambient lighting from the automotive industry and an increase in infrastructural projects are expected to boost the global ambient lighting market.

The automotive sector has witnessed an increase in recent years due to the rising disposable income of consumers and new technologies which is further rising the demand for ambient lighting. Moreover, interior ambient lighting is highly used as it provides an efficient lighting system inside the car especially ambient lighting in dashboard lights, displays, reading light, door surfaces, roof liner, and indicators that ensures drivers' safety and improve drivers' orientation. Furthermore, demand for energy-efficient lighting such as LED lighting has increased as it consumes less power and provides heat management facilities. As per OSRUM annual reports, its lamps and systems segment recorded US$1,028 million in sales in 2021. OSRUM is especially known for its ambient lighting used in automobiles and homes. Furthermore, luxury car brands that have a top-notch ambient lighting system in their cars have further raised the demand for ambient lighting. For example, the Mercedes-Benz A220 sedan has the best ambient light application in the seams of the door, instrument-panel trim, door knob, and circular blade of the car. Moreover, it has 64 shades of color to choose from and flash settings for a comfortable experience inside the car. Furthermore, outdoor lighting is used at industrial developments that provide safe working conditions for workers during night-time and provide security for them.

During the forecast period, North America is expected to gain a significant share of the global ambient lighting market.

North America witnessed an increase in the ambient lighting market due to a rise in demand from the automotive sector to ensure automotive safety and to implement energy-efficient solutions. Moreover, the presence of luxury car brands such as Tesla, BMW, Lexus, Cadillac, and others is further increasing the demand for interior ambient lighting. Furthermore, rising infrastructure projects as a result of urbanization and modernization are further increasing the demand for ambient light for workers' safety. As per ILO (International Labour Organization), 2.3 million men and women suffer from work-related accidents, and one of the reasons is improper construction industry facilities.  Due to such reasons, ambient lighting in construction areas or development projects becomes essential to prevent work-related accidents that may happen in rather dim or dark work areas. Moreover, ambient lighting on streets reduces crime activities in the region. Furthermore, the shift towards energy-efficient technology such as LED lighting with a smart ambient lighting system that can be connected to the car’s interior parts is further boosting the market in the region.
