Current Market Trends

Sales in incandescent Christmas lights continue to stay strong in light of surging LED string lights and bulb sales.
We recently polled our customers and here are their responses:
  • 100% decorating a house
  • 33% Indoors, 67% Outdoors
  • 33% Christmas Only, 60% Christmas + other holidays, 7%  for football and sports
  • 33% typical with strings & nets, 47% lights & yard art, 20% see from space
  • 47% Incandescent, 53% LED
  • 13% bulbs & cords, 87% strings
Additional trends: 
We continue to see strong sales in traditional lighting. When customers select Christmas lights, personal taste frequently outweighs technical pros and cons of LED vs. incandescent.

For customers who are using just a few lights - 100-200 feet - to outline their roofline, traditional incandescent lights remain a popular choice.


Business and retail customers are using both LED and incandescent lighting in 2015 with electrical service often used as a limiting factor since LED lighting uses up to 90% less electricity than incandescent lighting.
