2016 SYLVANIA Socket Survey

Eighth Annual SYLVANIA Socket Survey Shows Rise of Smart Lighting and LEDs

The eighth annual SYLVANIA Socket Survey found lighting to be one of the top forms of smart technology Americans own, with survey respondents reporting a 40 percent increase in adoption since 2015. The results also showed more than 60 percent of Americans believe smart lighting fits their lifestyle, and 55 percent confirmed they’re likely to purchase smart lighting when they need new bulbs. The survey also showed 76 percent of Americans agree smart light bulbs will eventually replace regular light bulbs.

As LEDs continue to gain in popularity, the survey found that 38 percent of consumers have switched to LEDs since the phase-out of incandescents, making LEDs the number one replacement option for Americans. This is a 27 percent increase compared to last year. The survey also found nearly 70 percent of Americans having purchased at least one LED bulb and 48 percent having purchased at least one LED bulb in the last 12 months --  a 17 percent increase over last year.
