Hospital Lighting Market Size (2023 to 2028)

As per our report, the size of the global hospital lighting market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.3% and will reach USD 11.58 billion by 2028 from USD 8.53 billion in 2023.

At the Global level, improving the infrastructure of Hospitals is a vital factor for suitable healthcare services. Lighting plays an essential role in the hospital infrastructure to improvise the work of doctors as well as the medical staff. Appropriate lighting services and innovation in technology for hospital lighting services see significant changes in the emerging economies in the last few years. In hospitals, efficient lighting source is essential in the different types of wards such as examination rooms, surgical suits, external areas of the hospital, and ICU wards.


The growing number of hospitals, rising adoption of LED light products, and various government initiatives are majorly driving the global hospital lighting market growth.

Rapidly growing, several multi-specialty hospitals and their infrastructure amenities provide a significant boost to the market growth. As per the American Hospital Association (AHA), in 2019, there were around 6,146 hospitals in the United States, which was 5,198 in 2018. The growth in the number of hospitals is directly influencing the global hospital lighting market growth. Currently, the consumption rate of LED lighting products in the Hospital lighting industry is very high. It is estimated to continue the growing trend in the years to come, which is expected to create substantial growth scope to the market.

The government’s initiatives and regulations to support energy-efficient and high-quality lighting in the hospitals are further expected to drive the market growth. In the Hospital Lighting infrastructure, lighting-centric lighting provides a better experience to the patients from recovering quickly, cardigan rhythm cycling, and a better sleep experience.

Globally, Asia Pacific holds the majority of the population. The rapidly growing population in this region is increasing the need for a greater number of hospitals, which is expected to provide growth opportunities for the hospital lighting market.


The high cost of lighting products is a major factor restraining the hospital lighting market growth.

Additionally, factors like the availability of alternative products at lower prices highly consolidated the market structure and further inhibited market growth. The long-life expectancy of LED lighting products is a crucial challenge to the manufacturing companies since the replacement of products in the hospitals takes a long time. Skilled technicians are required for lighting infrastructure to avoid damages, and high maintenance costs associated with the industry are further limiting the hospital lighting market growth. 

Impact of COVID-19 on the global hospital lighting market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the global economy back several years and impacted almost every industry. Since China, which is also the source of the pandemic, is a major producer of finished electronic goods and raw materials, it has had a significant impact on the electronic device industry.  Hospital lights are important in healthcare, as they improve both the capacity of the workforce and the patient experience to have the necessary quality of treatment. Surgical torches, troffers, wraparounds, and surface-mounted lights are some of the lighting devices that are often used in hospitals. Many leading hospitals are focusing on lighting environments to improve user experience, as it has a physiological and psychological impact on the human body. Furthermore, lighting in healthcare facilities must accommodate various locations and environments, such as nursing stations, consultation rooms, operating centers, waiting rooms, and other administrative and functional areas.

Lighting is commonly used in ICUs, wards, and other hospital environments, indicating that it plays an important part in the infrastructure of the healthcare domain. In recent years, the healthcare industry has played a significant part in purchasing new LED products. During COVID-19, LED sales were actually higher in the healthcare sector, especially in hospitals. Human-centric lighting systems are used in wardrooms to increase the sleep cycle, maintain cardiac rhythm, and so on. In wardrooms, intelligent and sophisticated lighting creates atmospheric settings that help patients comfort. As a result, the global hospital lighting market has positive growth during this tough pandemic situation by considering all these factors.
