Consumer choices in light bulbs for their homes have hugely changed over the past few years, and they appear to be doing so again.
Among non-LED users, CFLs are the top choice for replacement bulbs at 45%, with only 18% indicating they would purchase LED bulbs an alternative. However, among LED users, 44% would most likely buy LED bulbs again.
Prices for LED bulbs, which cost as much as US$100 for a single unit a few years ago, have fallen substantially. Even though that's still more than the cost of CFLs, not by much. The price point for CFLs is less right now, but as LEDs come down, their paths will cross in a few years.
