Light and Wellness Market Assessment

The DLC has released a request for proposals for a consultant to characterize the LED light and wellness lighting market as it pertains to commercial applications. Proposals will be accepted until March 29, 2021.

The DLC is seeking a consultant to characterize the LED light and wellness lighting market as it pertains to commercial applications. Light and wellness (L&W) lighting products are those designed and marketed to provide some circadian lighting attribute(s), such as a differentiated spectral power distribution, color tuning to support different time-of-day protocols, an optimized spatial distribution to increase vertical illuminance levels at the eye, and/or controllability to support one or more of these attributes. Lighting for wellness1 is defined here, per IES TM-18-18, as optical radiation that stimulates the circadian, neuroendocrine, and neurobehavioral systems in humans.

The scope of this market characterization of light and wellness products does not include germicidal and antibacterial/antimicrobial lighting products, products marketed for light therapy (including products for treating depression or seasonal affective disorders, headaches or any skin treatment therapies, etc.), nor residential-grade, consumer-grade products or product categories that are not on the DLC’s Solid-State Lighting Qualified Products List (QPL).
