The growing energy crisis in the Latin American region and associated long term benefits of using energy efficient lighting solutions has accelerated the phasing out of incandescent lamps in the region. This will not only help the region to cut down its energy consumption by almost 4%, but also help reduce CO2 emission along with financial savings. As a result, conventional lamps are steadily losing out their market share to advanced products such as CFLs and LED lamps. Also, with the drop in prices of CFLs and LED lamps due to growing competition, the market may see a partial offset in the overall market growth in terms of revenue generated.
