So you if you are wondering where the LED market is picking up steam, this is a summary of an article written by the DOE. http://energy.gov/eere/ssl/led-adoption-report
LED's are quickly becoming mainstay in many areas. There are alot of sockets and fixtures out there that have LED technology, however there are more that do not. The time to change is now, rebates and extremely efficient LED's are available.

Commercially, despite their relatively low market share to date, low-bay/high-bay and linear fixtures rank second and third in 2014 energy savings (after directional applications), accounting for 17% and 16% respectively.

In contrast to A-type lamps, which are typically used in residences and average less than two hours per day of operation, low-bay/high-bay fixtures, which are used in the commercial and industrial sectors, operate for an average of about 12 hours per day
