Investment Opportunities in Electric Lamp Industry

The statistics related to import of electric lamps and bulbs show that the import of such products has grown at an average annual rate of 19 percent over last 10 years. In FY2017/18, the Nepal’s import of various types of lamps and related articles amounted to Rs 2.5 billion. China and India accounted for 72 percent and 24 percent, respectively, of the country’s total import of such products. Given the increasing demand of electric lamps and bulbs due to the growing electrification across the country, due priority should be given to establish lamp industry in Nepal. The government should create a favorable environment to open doors of opportunities in lamp production for private investors. Policies should be formulated to protect the domestic lamp industries through tariff measures, and concerns of consumers should also be addressed simultaneously. Tax waivers to investors, government’s engagement in R&D activities and providing incentives and subsidies can be important in this respect.
