that the total LED market is expected to grow annually by 5% through to
2016 and by 3% thereafter until 2020. Rapid growth in LED penetration is
also expected in hospitality, shop and outdoor-lighting applications.

consumption of electricity in the MENA region is forecast to grow at a
faster pace over the next decade, with investments worth more than US$200
billion set to be pumped into the region's power sector by 2020, according
to a report. These coupled with the rapid infrastructure growth augurs
well for the lighting business in the region. Tapping into this growth, we
plan to create a strong foothold in the Middle East region. With this new
range, we will offer cutting-edge, energy-saving lighting products to our
customers. We are positive that with our new expansive range, we would
effectively meet the growing needs of the lighting industry within the
