Financial analysis of 100 major lighting manufacturers worldwide



The report Financial Analysis of 100 Major Lighting Manufacturers Worldwide, now at its third edition, is the result of CSIL processing of a dataset made up of a large number of balance sheets (600 companies, for the period 2017-2021), including lighting fixtures, lighting components and lighting automotive manufacturers. The purpose of this study is to assess the recent trends and structural characteristics of the lighting industry through the analysis of the balance sheets for the years 2017 to 2021 of a group of around 600 companies based worldwide and to identify, among them, the top 100 performing companies in the business. Top 100 players are reported separately as Big (over 50 million USD turnover) and Small players. In addition, a focus on the financial results of architectural and outdoor-oriented lighting companies is provided. The total sample analysed, for which an homogeneous time series were available (approximately 500 companies), shows an average workforce of over 750 employees and an average turnover of over USD 158 million in 2021. In absolute terms, the industry exhibits a 2021 turnover of about USD 77 billion, an EBIT in excess of USD 5 billion, almost 365 employees. The Report is made up by a short executive summary (around 50 pages) and an Excel database of company financial data and sector average.
