    The lighting market continued the move towards LED technology in 2014. LED lamp revenues in in 2013 were 25 percent of total global lamp revenues, growing to 30 percent in 2014 and reaching 67 percent in 2022. A growing market for LED technology lighting means a shrinking market for halogen, compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) and other traditional technologies, and larger lighting companies have struggled to adapt their businesses accordingly.
