One result of these long product cycles can be seen in the catalogs of today’s lamp manufacturers. A typical manufacturer’s catalog may carry 3,000 products, many of which have been available for decades. Today there is negligible demand for innovation in commercial lighting, a situation that is worsened by the unusually complex distribution channel serving the construction industry. A general or electrical contractor on behalf of the building owner or manager often purchases lighting systems. While their purchases may be influenced by the recommendation of architects or light specifier, most contractors put an overriding focus on low first-cost lighting.
