Shipments Of Lighting Equipment Surge In First Quarter Of 2006


The National Electrical Manufacturers Assn.’s Lighting Systems Index increased 7.2% during the first quarter of 2006, climbing to its highest reading in nearly six years. The topline index was supported by strong gains in domestic shipments of emergency lighting, fixtures and fluorescent ballasts. By contrast, large and miniature lamps posted modest declines in shipments compared to the prior quarter.

Evidence suggests shipments of lighting equipment will continue to expand. However, the underlying demand drivers for lighting equipment, namely residential and nonresidential construction, will begin to move in opposite directions going forward.
