Automotive Camera Cleaning System Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Production, Consumption and Forecast 2020 to 2027

The global automotive camera cleaning system market value is estimated to reach around US$ 1.5 Bn by 2027 and estimated to expand at a CAGR of 23.1% between 2020 and 2027.

Proliferation of advanced driving systems (ADS) and autonomous vehicles (AV) has catalyzed the demand for automotive camera cleaning systems. Companies in the automotive camera cleaning system market are increasing their efficacy in technology that supports ADSs and AVs. For instance, in December 2019, leading supplier of fluid management products, dlhBOWLES, announced a collaboration with the RAPA Group - a developer of automotive hydraulic and pneumatic valve systems to introduce camera and sensor cleaning products that support ADSs and AVs.

The global automotive camera cleaning system market is projected to witness major expansion, owing to dirty cameras, which has prompted automakers to adopt camera cleaning systems for externally mounted cameras.

Increased reliance of automotive safety features on cameras and 360o view cameras is anticipated to propel the automotive camera cleaning system market at an exponential growth rate during the forecast period. Moreover, rise in per capita income is anticipated to positively impact the automotive camera cleaning system market, as investment in luxury and leisure is expected to rise, which ultimately increases the demand for premium and luxury vehicles incorporated with advanced safety systems, including automotive camera cleaning systems.

The automotive camera cleaning system market is expected to expand at a significant pace, as it is helpful in cold and tropical regions, such as North America and Europe, owing to higher chances of deposition of snow and mud on camera lenses. Expansion of the automotive camera cleaning system market can also be attributed to the increase in integration of cameras in newer vehicles that are fitted with safety systems. Park assist camera is a highly common system, which is mounted at the rear end of the vehicle. Deposition of dirt or snow on the camera is expected to reduce visibility and consequently, OEMs are more likely to adopt camera cleaning system for mounted cameras. Camera based technology has improved significantly in the last two decades. Moreover, safety features, such as blind spot detection, lane keep assist, and other ADAS based technologies, depend exclusively on the automotive camera. Increasing penetration of cameras in vehicles is fueling the demand for automotive camera cleaning systems. Rising demand for premium and luxury vehicles by consumers in several regions, including Europe and North America, is likely to augment the demand for automotive camera cleaning systems, as premium vehicles are fitted with more number of advanced safety features.

Market Challenges

Adoption of camera cleaning systems in mid and entry class vehicles is likely to face barriers due to a rise in initial installment & maintenance cost of the vehicle and integration of pivoted camera. The camera cleaning system comprises numerous components and a 5 to 10 liter reservoir, which significantly enhances the cost of the whole system. Moreover, it would also increase the maintenance cost of the vehicle, which, in turn, is likely to hinder the adoption of vehicle integrated with the cleaning system. Several vehicle manufacturers install the front and rear camera behind the emblem of the vehicle, wherein the emblem pivots when the transmission is in reverse in order to expose the camera lens. Consequently, it reduces the chances of camera lens getting dirty due to deposition of mud or snow, which, in turn, eliminates the requirement of the camera cleaning system. This is likely to hamper the market. For instance, Volkswagen and Mercedes have integrated these types of parking cameras in their models, which eliminates the requirement of an automotive camera cleaning system.

Key Segments

Based on vehicle type, passenger vehicle was a highly attractive segment, and is anticipated to hold a leading share of the automotive camera cleaning system market, owing to the presence of camera cleaning system in a large number of passenger vehicles, while the system is present in a few light commercial vehicles in specific regions.

In terms of application, the parking camera segment accounted for a major share of the market. Mirror camera and CMS camera are anticipated to be high prominent segments of the market owing to the rising integration of side cameras for various ADAS features such as 360 degree view, and blind spot detection system. Night vision cameras and interjection cameras are gaining popularity in Europe, and these segments are expected to expand significantly in the market in Europe.

Based on sales channel, the OEM segment is likely to hold a significant share of the market during forecast period, owing to rising integration of the system in premium vehicles. Furthermore, the segment is likely to expand at a high growth rate during the forecast period, owing to increasing integration of the system in ADAS equipped vehicles. Availability of camera cleaning system as a customized addition is driving the aftermarket segment of the market.

Regional Analysis

In terms of region, the global automotive camera cleaning system market has been segregated into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Europe held a notable share of the global automotive camera cleaning system market, owing to higher production of premium vehicles in the region incorporated with automotive camera cleaning systems.

Furthermore, the adoption and production of technology in Europe is comparatively more, as compared to that in other regions. Several decisions by governments of countries in Europe have hampered businesses in the region. Rise in revised taxes due to Brexit is likely to hamper production and sales of automobiles in Europe, which in turn is estimated to restrain the overall automotive industry. This is likely to hinder the automotive camera cleaning system market in the region.

Self-cleaning Camera Systems for Uninterrupted Autonomous Driving

Companies in the automotive camera cleaning systems market are developing multi-camera washing systems to meet end user demands. For instance, in December 2018, Clarion - a Japanese manufacturer of automotive navigation systems, announced the launch of their novel self-cleaning camera systems that automatically wash the dirt on each camera of a vehicle.

After years of R&D, manufacturers in the automotive camera cleaning systems market have been successful in developing innovative cleaning systems that ensure accuracy of cameras used as external sensors for autonomous driving. Thus, the trend of self-driving vehicles is driving the market for automotive camera cleaning systems.
