GE Lighting expands its LED product portfolio

GE Lighting, a division of GE, announced the launch of its LED Roadway product family for the Indian market. This complements GE’s recent launches of LED Down lights and LED 2×2 Recessed Troffers for Retail and Commercial office applications.  Speaking about the launch, Himamshu Prasad, President and CEO of GE Lighting India, said, “GE has a proven track record of developing products that are meant to solve world’s toughest challenges.  In India, the demand for power has been consistently outstripping the supply resulting in frequent power cuts that is adversely affecting the quality of life. Lighting consumes about 20 per cent of all the electricity generated. Using GE’s Energy Efficient LED Lighting products is one way by which the load on the power grid can be reduced.”
“Our LED range of products and solutions will enable our customers to leverage our unique technology to create an aesthetically pleasing environment while lowering the energy consumption resulting in significant cost savings,” Mr. Prasad added.
GE’s products have been designed to specifically suit the harsh environmental conditions in India. For example: Higher ingress protection (IP 66) with pressure die cast construction has been incorporated to protect the LED system from rains and dust, and wide input voltage drivers are used to handle significant voltage swings.
“The LED space is globally poised to take over 60 per cent of the lighting market by 2020. In India LEDs are projected to grow over 40 per cent on a year-on-year basis. With this new launch, GE Lighting expects to outpace the market growth in India by 2 to 3 times,” informed Mr. Prasad.
