Electronic ballast are the devices that can control the starting voltage and operating current of lightning devise built on the principle of electric gas discharge. In a fluorescent lighting system, the ballast is used to regulate the current to the lamps and provide sufficient voltage to start the lamps. It refers to the part of circuit that limits the flow of current through the lightning device and may vary from being a single resistor to a bigger complex device. In some florescent lighting systems like dimmers, it is also responsible for the controlled flow of electrical energy to a heat lamp electrodes.
The dimming electronic ballasts for florescent lamps can save energy and increase the range of illuminances provided by the lighting system. The dimming system is very beneficial as it saves energy related to the non-dimming system, assuming lamps are dimmed and both systems are operating for similar period of time. Most of the dimming electronic ballasts are silent and they do not cause any perceptible flicker. They represent a significant improvement over dimming magnetic ballast, many of these hum and may cause flickering in the dimmed lamps. Control devise for the dimming ballasts include automatic an manual dimmers, photo sensors to dim lamps when the day light is unavailable and energy management system that dim lamp during peak demand hours or at night. t which limits the flow of current through the lighting device and may vary from being a single resistor to a bigger, complex device. In some fluorescent lighting systems like dimmers, it is also responsible for the controlled flow of electrical energy to heat the lamp electrodes.
There are several factors that are boosting up the market of dimmable electronic ballasts, such as exceptional competition due to the presence of several international players, rapid advancements in technology and recurrent variations in government protocols and regulations. The dimmable electronic ballasts are also cost effective and energy saving electronic devices that can be used for various applications in offices, commercial places, hotels, parks, streets and other places according to the requirements.
The global dimmable electronic ballast market is segmented on the basis of type, end users, and region. On the basis of type, the dimmable electronic ballast market is segmented into amalgam and non-amalgam. Generally the amalgam compact fluorescent lamps perform better in higher temperature applications making them ideal for use in enclosed fixtures and applications with excessive heat. Amalgam is a mercury alloy which is an upgrade from traditional liquid and pellet dosing mercury. The wide operating temperature range make them ideal for higher temperature or enclosed applications. Based on end users, the global dimmable electronic ballast market is segmented into commercial, industrial and others. The commercial sector is expected to hold the largest market share as these lights are mostly used in the corporate offices.
In the region wise study, the global dimmable electronic ballast market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. North America which comprises the US and Canada captured significant market share followed by Europe and Asia Pacific in 2016. North America which comprises of U.S., Mexico, and Canada showed the fastest growth rate during the forecast period due to the initiative of the U.S. government to save the power and electrical energy. Asia is also a growing market for the dimmable electronic ballast market as there is increasing number of infrastructure and China represents huge potential for the dimmable electronic ballast with the rising energy utility programs in the country. The Europe is also expected to be growing with the significant rate in the forecast period.
The global dimmable electronic ballast market is highly fragmented with number of companies operating in the segment. Leading players are currently focusing on providing cost competitive products to the customers. Some of the key players engaged in dimmable electronic ballast market include various manufacturers such as LCR Electronics, Eckerle Industrie- Elektronik, ERC Highlight, Daisalux, ELKOVO, Eaton, Keystone Technologies, Signify Holding, Lutron Electronics Co., Inc, General Electric, W. Lucy and Others. The major players are continuously implementing researches and coming out with the innovative products in the field of global dimmable electronic ballast market.
