Between 2012 and 2018 E-commerce for the lighting fixtures sector registered an average yearly 18% growth according to the author's estimates.

If we include both B2C and B2B business, the e-commerce market for lighting fixtures worldwide is estimated to account approximately 6% of total lighting fixtures sales, worth about USD 8.5 billion at retail prices.

Residential and commercial lighting segments are the ones that registered the higher incidence in the e-commerce transactions.

The penetration of e-commerce is higher in North America (8%) where over 90% of e-commerce business is developed in the United States. In a few years, e-commerce in China developed at a very rapid path and reached a similar penetration level than the one in North America. In Asia-Pacific, India is currently the fastest-growing market for e-commerce in the lighting fixtures. E-commerce penetration in the lighting fixtures business stood at around 4.5% in Europe in 2018 with the United Kingdom and Germany to be the largest marketplaces.

Looking at the different distributors the study estimated that about 37% of worldwide e-commerce sales is in the hand of wholesalers (for example, Rexel operates dozens of e-commerce sites throughout North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific). The fastest-growing category is the E-tailers (+25% since 2012) which includes global e-commerce platforms (like the giant Amazon), specialist lighting webstores (like Lampenwelt) and furniture webstores (like Wayfair, Pepperfry). Only a few manufacturers operate their own web shop.

Lighting retailers are competing especially on the customer experience investing a huge amount of money on the so-called omnichannel approach. Through this approach, the coexistence of physical stores and webstore might be an advantage.
