NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Sports lighting remained virtually unchanged for decades, especially when it came to outdoor sources of illumination, with metal halide lamps being the default option for stadiums and open courts. In recent years, however, the market has been moving steadily towards LED lighting amid a global push for energy efficiency and sustainability and recognition of the benefits associated with smart solutions. As the number of national and international sports events continues to rise, so do the construction of new sporting facilities and the expectations of fans, both in terms of live experiences and television broadcasts. LED installations are becoming increasingly popular due to the combination of superior light quality, longer life, energy savings, and reduced maintenance costs. Guy Albert de Chimay, executive vice-president of Green Arc Energy Advisors, firmly believes that LED is the future of outdoor sports lighting and is proud that his company is in the vanguard of promoting these solutions.

The overwhelming majority of reports focus on stadiums, which represent the main sales driver for sports lighting. According to Zion Market Research, this segment will grow at a compound annual rate of 7.4% from 2018 through 2024, with global revenues rising from $389 million to $641 million over the forecast period. In its own report on the market, Technavio comments, "With rising construction of stadiums across the globe owing to the growing popularity of sporting events, the demand for stadium lighting will rise considerably in the forthcoming years. Stadium authorities are increasingly focusing on installing high-quality lighting systems as they enhance the viewing experience in the stadium. These lights also provide sports broadcasters with high-quality visuals, particularly for slow-motion replays." Despite the leading role of these facilities in driving LED adoption, there are numerous other venues where implementation is accelerating, Guy Albert de Chimay points out, giving as examples tennis, golf, and cricket courses and recreational playing fields. His company has identified particularly strong demand from tennis court operators, most recently completing the installation of outdoor lighting at Town Tennis Club in New York, NY.
