What are the Key Factors Driving Growth of the Automotive Clear Vision System Market?
“Increasing Vehicle Production Building Base for Automotive Clear Vision System Demand”
In 2021, total vehicle production was around 80.2 Mn. In this, production of passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles were nearly 57 Mn and 23 Mn, respectively. However, increasing number of private vehicles is unquestionably indicative of society's progress.
Growing number of vehicles has provided necessary the boost to the demand for automotive clear vision pumps, wipers, etc., around the world. This growth in private as well as commercial vehicle demand is driving the market for automotive clear vision solutions and systems.
Moreover, regulations for automotive specifications across different regions, wherein, the inclusion of clear vision systems is a must, is likely to drive demand for automotive clear vision systems and also for automotive night vision systems going forward.
“Rising Technological Developments in Autonomous Vehicles to Drive Sales of Automotive Clear Vision Systems Components”
Autonomous vehicles are designed to be fully self-driven. They rely on perception sensors that act as vision points for driving purposes. Sensor technology is of prime importance in autonomous vehicles.
Presence of mud, dirt, bird droppings, or rainwater may affect the visibility of the sensors and can hamper their ability to deliver information to the onboard systems. Such challenges in self-driving vehicles can lead to fatal incidents. As autonomous cars are the upcoming great innovation in the automobile industry, the need for sensor windshield cleaning systems will gain higher importance.
Further, demand for automotive clear vision wipers will rise owing to increasing demand for hoses & connectors to have a clear vision windshield. Global warming is increasing weather uncertainties, which is boosting clear vision windshield sales.
Increasing adoption of sensors creates the need for cleaning them during driving to have a clear vision. Sensors and other ADAS component manufacturing companies are investing in R&D to make better products. This is motivating clear vision system component manufacturers to invest more in technology to match the requirements of cleaning advanced sensors.
“Competitive Environment in Visibility Solutions Helping Market Remain Dynamic & Innovative”
Developments in the automotive industry have led to the generation of intense competition between key market players. Competition is seen in the form of new product launches that provide solutions related to visibility in both commercial and passenger vehicles.
Product innovations such as LIDAR-based cleaning systems, ultrasonic sensor cleaning, and aerodynamic sensor cleaning are a few examples that highlight the extent of the product offerings catering to the requirements of the automotive sensor market.
These developments have created intense demand for new cleaning innovations such as telescopic nozzles for headlamps and sensors. These innovations will substantially favor the growth of automotive clear vision systems market globally.

Will Automotive Clear Vision System Manufacturers Encounter any Hurdles?
“Rise in Maintenance Cost of Vehicles and Integration of Pivoted Cameras Likely Hamper Overall Growth”
A camera clear vision 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 vehicles integrated with cleaning systems.
For example, some manufacturers install the front and rear cameras behind the symbol of the vehicle in which the symbol pivots when the transmission is opposite to expose the camera lens. Thus, it reduces the chances of the camera lens getting dirty due to the deposition of mud or snow, which, in turn eliminates the requirement of camera cleaning system.
How is Demand for Automotive Washing Systems Shaping Up in China?
The East Asia automotive clear system market is a dominant shareholder in the global market. East Asia accounts for nearly two-fifths market share, where the Chinese automotive clear vision system market is a significant contributor to the growth of the market.
In FY-2021, China solely manufactured nearly 26 Mn vehicles, including 21.4 million cars and 4.6 Mn commercial vehicles, which is the highest number in the global market. It acquired about 70% market share in the East Asia market.
The Chinese clear vision system market is expected to gain 97 BPS and generate an absolute dollar opportunity of around US$ 5.4 Bn by the end of 2032.
Why is the Indian Clear Vision System Market Attracting Several Manufacturers?
From a growth perspective, South Asia and Oceania is the most lucrative market for automotive clear vision systems and automotive night vision systems owing to increasing population and rising per capita income. This is driving demand for compact cars, SUVs, and luxury cars.
India is luring automotive manufacturers to produce vehicles in the country. The Indian government is formulating attractive policies to become one of the leading manufacturing economies globally.
The India automotive clear vision system market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.9% and touch a market valuation of US$ 2 Bn by the end of 2032. It is assessed to generate an absolute dollar opportunity of around US$ 1.1 Bn between 2022 and 2032.
