ASEAN Regional Efficient Lighting Market Assessment

The ASEAN Regional Efficient Lighting Market Assessment was undertaken by the International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC) on behalf of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) as part of the ASEAN SHINE – Lighting initiative, which promotes higher efficiency lighting equipment in the ASEAN  

community through a partnership between the UNEP’s en.lighten initiative and ASEAN Centre for Energy (ACE), with financial support from the European Union’s SWITCH‐Asia programme and the Australian Government.


The assessment is expected to support ASEAN member states in the establishment of harmonized minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and test standards for lighting products, as well as the implementation of coordinated monitoring, verification and enforcement schemes to ensure compliance with the standards. It considered the current and projected lighting markets in all ASEAN member states and estimated that the total number of lamps installed in the various end‐use sectors in all ASEAN member states in 2014 was around 1.9 billion lamps. The residential sector was the largest end‐use sector in the region, accounting for about 69% of total lamp stock. Compact fluorescent lamps occupy the largest share in the residential lamp stock, accounting for about 48%, followed by linear fluorescent lamps at 34%. Indonesia had the largest share in terms of number of lamps installed in the region, about 547 million lamps.


As part of the assessment, a market forecasting tool, the Policy Analysis Model for ASEAN (PAMA), was developed to project lamp stocks and shipments in each ASEAN member state up to 2030. The model also provides a consumer‐oriented analysis and a national cost‐benefit analysis of lighting policies. The model uses country‐specific data and indices (such as population, GDP, per capita income, electrification and distribution rates) in combination with product‐specific data (lamp shipment by types, efficacies and lifetimes) to estimate impacts from various energy efficiency policy scenarios.
