Electric lighting equipment is used throughout the United Kingdom. Lighting products are found throughout homes, workplaces, shops, hospitals, airports and sports stadiums. Because lighting accounts for approximately 20% of all electrical energy usage, improvements in lighting present a clear opportunity to save energy and slow climate change. Innovative lighting solutions can both save energy and improve the quality of light. The market for electric lighting is expected to be worth £3.1 billion in 2014-15, of which an estimated £2 billion (or 62.4%) will be satisfied by imports.

The manufacture of ceiling fans with integrated lighting fixtures and the manufacture of electrical signalling equipment such a traffic lights are excluded from the industry.
