Light meter market is known as LUX meter, that is, luminous flux per unit area. It is a handheld device that is used for measuring the light. A light meter can read the intensity of the light in a scene, or the direct light from a light source. Lux meters are designed with photo detector, which is positioned perpendicular to the light source for optimal exposure and detect brightness, illuminance more accurately. The demand for light meter is rising in the workplace due to safety concerns.

light meter market is expected to witness considerable growth from 2019 to 2026, owing to increase in need for wireless light meter technologies in lighting. Furthermore, increase in passion for photography among youngsters, rise in per capita disposable income, and growth in demand for high-quality photography by commercial and professional photographers in day and night lead to the increased use of light meters; thereby, boosting the market growth. 

As light plays an important role in capturing the desired photos and videos, light meters need the various required light levels for capturing a portrait or scene in order to exhibit high quality picture, which is expected to contribute to the growth of the light meter market during the forecast period.

Increase in government initiatives for the adoption of standardization of lighting protocols, rise in demand for light meters in the photography and cinematography industry, and surge in usage of lux meters in indoor and outdoor sports activities are the major drivers for the light meter market growth. However, development of smartphone applications and light measuring devices to substitute light meters restrain the market growth.
