Published Date : Apr 2020 | No. of Pages : 200 Pages | Category : Automation and Transport

The global automotive lighting market size was valued at USD 18.00 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach USD 29.86 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 6.9% from 2020 to 2027. The rear lighting segment was the highest contributor to the market, with $5.61 billion in 2018, and is estimated to reach USD 9.53 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period.

Lighting plays an important role in automotive vehicles to provide illumination for the driver. In addition, lighting systems also help other drivers and pedestrians on the road to detect the vehicle’s position, direction of movement, and size. It adds aesthetic looks to both interior and exterior parts of the vehicle and at the same time increases the conspicuity of the vehicle. It comprises lighting and signaling devices. These lighting equipment are mounted on different locations in the vehicle such as front, rear, top, and interiors. Traditionally, halogen, being a low cost and easily available technology, is the majorly used lighting technology and includes xenon and LED as the other prominent lighting technologies. Increase in concerns regarding road safety and government regulations for lighting are the major factors that drive the demand for lighting equipment. In addition, the factors such as increase in disposable incomes and improvement in lifestyle and transportation requirements are contributing to the increase in the production of vehicles, which, in turn, fuels the demand for automotive lighting.

The factors such as growth in emphasis toward road safety, implementation of stringent government regulations, and rise in automobile production drive the growth of the automotive lighting market. However, high cost of LEDs is expected to restrain the automotive lighting market growth. Furthermore, rise in demand for automotive in developing nations is anticipated to provide a remarkable growth opportunity for the players operating in the market.

The key players including DENSO Corporation, Hella KGaA Hueck & Co., Hyundai Mobis, Koito Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Koninklijke Philips N.V., Osram Licht AG, ROBERT BOSCH GmbH, Stanley Electric Co., Ltd., Valeo, and Zizala Lichtsysteme GmbH holds the major automotive lighting market share.

Growing emphasis toward road safety

The demand for safety features along with adaptive lighting system has increased due to increase in number of road accidents worldwide. Vehicles with adaptive and advanced lightings can detect objects on the road, thereby enabling the driver to take appropriate actions required. Furthermore, increase in concern regarding road accidents, globally, fuels the demand for better safety features in vehicles eventually leading to the installation of efficient lighting systems; thereby, providing optimum road illumination. Automotive lights are primarily installed to enhance the visibility in harsh environments and to improve the vehicles conspicuity in critical conditions.

According to World Health Organization’s report, nearly 1.25 million people die in road accidents each year. Moreover, road traffic injuries leading to death are higher among teenagers. These factors are leading to the growing demand for adaptive and better lighting system in vehicles. Automobile companies are developing and introducing new lighting system equipped with different features such as communicating to the pedestrians to ensure safety and to meet the needs of the customers. Thus, growing emphasis toward road safety is expected to drive the growth of the automotive lighting market.

Implementation of Stringent Government Regulations

Insufficient visibility was the prominent factor that accounted for increasing number of road accidents, globally. Governments across the world have formulated effective regulations pertaining to the use of lighting systems in automobiles. The European Union mandates the use of Daytime Running Lights (DRL) due to unfavorable weather conditions in this region. Presently, 17 countries in Europe have formulated effective legislations related to the installation of DRLs. Since 2011, in European countries Daytime Running Lights (DRL) have mandated for the cars, small delivery vehicles, buses, and trucks. The MVSA (Motor Vehicles Safety Act) in Canada mandated the use of DRLs in all vehicles. Additionally, numerous countries are taking active initiatives to curb CO2 emission levels in vehicles. Thus, implementation of stringent government regulations for the safety and security across the globe is anticipated to boost the growth of the automobile lighting market.

High cost of LED lights

Halogen, xenon, and LED lights are commonly used lighting technologies in automotive industry. Application of LED in headlights, rear lights, and in interior lighting is prominently increasing due to the associated benefits including reduced power consumption, cooler temperatures, and the longer self-life of LED lights. However, with the installation of LEDs in automobiles, a lot of heat is dispersed to the emitters, which can be controlled only with the installation of other equipment. This eventually increases the cost for LED lights to be used in automobiles; thereby, restraining the growth of the automotive lighting market during the forecast period.

Increase in demand for advanced technology in vehicle

With increased production and sales of vehicle across the globe, the demand for vehicles equipped with advanced technology has increased. This has led the vehicle manufacturers to develop and install latest components in the upcoming vehicle models. For instance, companies such as Hella KGAA HUECK & Co. is developing and introducing new lighting system equipped with different features such as communicating to the pedestrians to ensure safety and to meet the needs of the customers. Developing countries such as Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) are witnessing a rapid growth in the sales of automobiles. Furthermore, growth in urban population, improvement in income levels, and changing in lifestyles are the factors that supplement the automotive lighting market growth. Automobile manufacturers across the globe have an increased focus toward manufacturing the vehicles equipped with advanced components technology such as advanced driving system, adaptive lighting system, and various other systems, which ensure safety and increase the comfort while driving. This has led to the use of better and efficient lighting system for automobiles. Thus, the rising demand for automotive in developing nations has led to the growth of automotive lighting market; thereby, enabling the manufacturers across the globe to adapt new strategies to introduce new lighting products for the safety of passengers.
