The ever increasing demand for high quality LED light has encouraged many lighting manufacturers in India to enter this industry. In fact, a lot of companies are currently offering a wide range of LED lighting products that are immensely efficient and eco-friendly when compared to standard incandescent lamps (ICLs) and fluorescent lamps (FTLs/CFLs).
