June 26, 2017: 2016 LED lighting market for horticulture application research says one of latest trends in the market is focus on development of innovative products. The growth and development of horticulture crops depend on the amount of sunlight they receive. The long period of darkness, especially in Nordic Countries and North Central Europe, makes it difficult for farmers to improve the crop output. Therefore, horticulturists are supplementing sunlight with lighting technologies. As LEDs provide optimum plant light output and are cost-effective, these are gaining traction among horticulturists. The growing preference for LEDs over traditional lighting has encouraged lighting manufacturers to develop innovative LED lighting lamps and fixtures specific to the horticulture sector.
