Key Challenges to Automotive Tail Light Industry Expansion

The poor weather conditions causing functional concerns would be a principal challenge for the car adaptive lighting market in countries like U.S & Canada.

Besides, commercial vehicles such as freight trucks drive thousands of miles regularly. Thus, the utilization of advanced lighting technologies may not be reasonable. Moreover, high cost discourages manufacturers from offering advanced lighting systems in this vehicle section. Consequently, only a few commercial vehicle creators have presented advanced lighting systems in their vehicles.

Country-wise Analysis

How Opportunistic are Growth Prospects across North America?

North America captured nearly 3/5th share in 2021 and is poised to record a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period. Adaptive headlights offer enhanced visualization to the driver during the night and other poor-vision conditions by altering the headlight angle and delivering the required intensity of the light.

These systems emanate white or amber light in the countries of the region, unlike other countries where white is the authorized color for automotive lighting systems.

Besides, adaptive headlights also decrease shimmer from oncoming traffic and pedestrians, and the implementation of ALS as a safety system has augmented significantly even across mid-price segment vehicles in North America. The advancement of projector lamp systems, along with developments in sensor technology, will stimulate the growth of the market significantly in the province.

Owing to the towering fatality rate in traffic accident rates in the United States on curved and dimmed light roads joined with inadequate flexibility of the static headlight systems are some of the foremost drivers thrusting the growth of the North American adaptive lighting systems market.

Fact.MR’s recent analysis reveals that the North American market for Automotive Tail Light is estimated to surpass US$ 3 Billion by 2032 end, estimated at nearly US$ 1.5 Billion in 2021.

Why are Automotive Tail Light Providers Venturing into APEJ?

APEJ is estimated to foster the demand for the automotive tail light at a substantial rate; backed by the gradual introduction of automotive manufacturing facilities. The launch of products like interior cabin lights that comprise sterilization features in vehicles may also nurture vehicle sales, further propelling the automotive lighting market.

In terms of country-wise growth, China, the global manufacturing hub, has been one high-potential market for automotive taillight over the years. The lower-Price points in terms of raw material as well as labor will continue to enable the Chinese market for automotive tail light to remain the key revenue generator over 2022-2032.

The market value is forecasted to exceed US$ 6.5 Billion, following a growth rate of 6.6% throughout the forecast period. In 2021, the market evaluated nearly US$ 3.2 Billion.

Additionally, prominent manufacturers in this region are concentrating on technological advancements, including lighting, therefore, thrusting the demand for automotive lighting. The rise in consumer per capita income and high sales of SUVs in emerging economies such as India will drive the market further.

Which Vehicle Type is Most Preferred in the Automotive Tail Light Market?

The passenger car segment accounted for 4/5th market share in 2021. The commercial vehicle segment is also anticipated to show lucrative growth in the market over the forecast period due to governments' initiatives for improving commercial vehicle safety standards.

With a market valuation of nearly US$ 5 Billion in 2022, passenger cars are foreseen to remain the most attractive vehicle type for automotive taillight manufacturers.

By Technology Type, which Automotive Tail Light is expected to Dominate?

LEDs last 20 time longer than conventionally used incandescent bulbs, making an excellent attribute for adoption for the former. Moreover, while conventional lamps achieve an electrical conversion of up to 10%, LEDs have been proven to convert nearly 90% of the energy into light.

Several manufacturers are also focusing on providing LED tailgate light bars for an additional safety and functionality element in heavy transport and commercial vehicles. Despite holding the largest value share of over 50% in the global automotive tail light market, the performance of halogen is presumed to face rigorous competition by LED, which is anticipated to exhibit a higher CAGR through 2032.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent automotive tail light providers are reliant on partnerships, collaborations, acquisitions, and new software launch to stay afloat in the global market. Constant innovations to ensure a seamless client-customer relationship are the main focus of prominent market players.

  • In August 2021, the lighting and electronics specialist HELLA and French automotive supplier Faurecia signed an agreement on the combination of the two companies.
