Cree’s market advantage stems from its use of silicon carbide (SiC) material for epitaxy and fabrication of related devices.

Eaton, formerly known as Cooper Lighting, is the largest producer of exit signs and recessed lighting fixtures in North America. It is also a major manufacturer of various other types of lighting fixtures. Before the emergence of numerous “Energy Star” energy-efficient recessed lighting and exit signs, Cooper Lighting had 19 series of lighting brands. Among them, Portfolio is the largest lighting sales brand at Lowes, a large American home improvement retail chain, while Halo is a shared recessed lighting brand between Home Depot and Lowes.

In August 2007, Cooper Lighting successfully acquired ioLighting, a company known for its LED lighting fixtures, marking another leap in its presence in the energy-efficient lighting market.

11. Flos

FLOS’s position in the lighting industry is akin to Rolex in the watch industry or Louis Vuitton in the luxury goods industry. The rise of the creative lighting brand FLOS differs from other Italian furniture brands such as CASSINA or Minotti in that FLOS’s founder, Arturo Eisenkeil, was not a designer but a lighting manufacturer. The products are designed by world-renowned designers such as Achille Castiglioni, Piergiacomo Castiglioni, Philippe Starck, Jasper Morrison, Konstantin Grcic, and others.

FLOS’s products not only satisfy basic functional needs but also pursue a poetic expression of aesthetic concepts. These products, full of novel ideas and vivid emotions, often give people a refreshing feeling and have been praised and sought after by users for a long time.
