    • professional luminaire market, exclusive brand retail stores,
    • electric appliance shops,
    • home appliance franchises, supermarket franchises,
    • hardware stores,
    • construction material markets,
    • and other markets.

    Currently, most luminaire products are being sold through professional luminaire markets. Additionally, advancing technology has gradually made e-commerce a new sales channels for manufacturers.

    In 2014, China’s online lighting market value reached RMB 14.68 billion, and comprised 14.4% of sales. Since most traditional lighting manufacturers have physical stores, they can offer consumers offline experiences, which gives them a greater advantage in the O2O market compared to solely online manufacturers.
