Market Overview:

The global light curtains market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for safety light curtains in industrial applications and rising awareness about safety measures among end users. The global light curtains market is segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into safety light curtain and measurement light curtain. The safety light curtain segment dominates the global market with a share of more than 85%. This can be attributed to its growing demand in industrial applications owing to its ability to protect workers from potential injuries caused by machines or moving parts. On the basis of application, automobile manufacturing accounts for majority share in terms of revenue followed by electric appliance production and others segments respectively.

Global Light Curtains Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Light Curtains are used to protect workers from the exposure to bright light. They are also used to control the brightness of a work area.

Safety Light Curtain:

Safety light curtain is a passive fire safety device that consists of two or more layers of transparent material with different colors and transparency levels. The top layer absorbs the heat produced by the flame while it burns, while the bottom layer reflects this heat away from the area. This technology was initially developed for jet engine testing facilities to protect workers against hot gases and fires but has now become an industry standard across various industries globally.

Measurement Light Curtain:

Light curtain is a semi-transparent material that is used to control and reduce light intensity in offices, retail stores, educational institutes and other commercial places. It helps in creating a comfortable working environment by reducing the brightness of the room as well as protects eyes from harmful ultra-violet rays.

The product also finds its utility in medical applications such as surgeries where it can be used to block certain lights or lenses which are believed to cause discomfort or stress during surgical procedures.

Application Insights:

Automobile manufacturing was the largest application segment in 2017 and will continue to be so over the forecast period. The need for providing safe working environment while maintaining production targets at automobile manufacturing plants globally has led to an increased use of light curtains across automotive facilities.

Light curtain used in electric appliance production is known as HVAC (heating, ventilation, and cooling) system. Manufacturers are increasingly using these products to improve energy efficiency by reducing heat loss from windows during day time. These products help reduce glare during day time which aids in improving productivity inside factories as well as reduces fatigue among employees who have to work on a bright sunlight-filled floor every day.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global light curtains market in 2017. The presence of a large number of automobile manufacturers, particularly in China and Japan, has led to an increase in demand for light curtains across the region. In addition, rising electricity consumption due to rapid industrialization and urbanization is expected to drive product demand over the forecast period. Europe accounted for a significant share owing to stringent government regulations regarding energy conservation coupled with growing electric appliance manufacturing industry within the region.

The North America market is projected to witness considerable growth from 2018 until 2030 owing its high concentration of automobile manufacturers such as Ford Motors Company; General Motors Company; Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V.; BMW AG; Mercedes-Benz AG Daimler AG; Volkswagen Group A GmbH & Co., Ltd.; Hyundai Motor Company Ltd.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for safety and security in industrial and commercial sectors
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of light curtains over traditional safety measures
  • Technological advancements that have made light curtains more efficient and user-friendly
  • Rising demand from end-use industries such as automotive, aerospace, and semiconductor
  • Stringent government regulations mandating the use of light curtains in certain industrial applications
