An Adaptive Approach to Modern-day Research Needs

What is the Commercial Potential of Automotive Lighting?

Apart from vehicles, lighting is used in industrial & commercial applications. Industrial lighting is mainly found in factories, chemical plants, and manufacturing plants, while commercial lighting is found in homes, offices, restaurants, schools, and any other commercial centres.

Lighting technology has made advancements in all segments over the years. Manufacturers are trying to improve the efficiency of lighting solutions for automotive as well as industrial use. Halogen, LED, and xenon headlight technologies are driving market expansion across regions. The potential for the lighting market is not only limited to automotive but across many different sectors.

Which Recent Trends are Increasing Demand for Automotive Lighting?

Modern automotive lighting solutions have enhanced performance, improved security, and sleek designs. Many manufacturers who are opting for energy-efficient electronics in cars are using LED lights for automobiles these days. LEDs have a high-tech look and longer lifespan, which is why, they are becoming so popular among manufacturers. Some companies are producing LED headlights with a bendable light source.

Laser lighting is also an upcoming trend in the automotive industry, as they are smaller in size and have brightness almost four times that of an LED. The primary benefits for drivers is that laser lighting has a long reach and offers increased visibility of the road.

Why is the U.S. a Lucrative Market for Automotive Lighting Manufacturers?

Fact.MR has predicted the U.S. to be one of the prominent markets for automotive lighting systems. Automotive lighting manufacturers are trying to establish long-term partnerships with suppliers and OEMs for furthering their businesses.

Moreover, U.S. automotive manufacturers are adapting to technological advancements that happen in the market. The U.S. market has many prominent OEMs such as Fiat Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors, which is a major driving factor for its growth.

For instance, Ford’s advanced front lighting system widens the light beam at junctions for better light illumination, which enhances the driver’s attention towards pedestrians and animals on and off the road. Thus, U.S is expected to hold more than 40% of the market share for automotive lighting in the forecast period.

What is the Outlook for China’s Automotive Lighting Industry?

The Chinese market for automotive lighting equipment is expected to expand over the coming years mainly because of the presence of large manufacturers in the country. China is one of the main exporters of electronic components to lighting manufacturers.

China’s market is surging mainly because of rapid growth in the manufacturing of LED headlamps with additional functions such as ABD (adaptive driving beams) and AFS (adaptive front-lighting systems). The Chinese government has been promoting the sales of electric vehicles, which has accelerated demand for automotive lighting as well. Fact.MR expects the Chinese landscape to hold a market share of over 60% of the total market share of automotive lighting.

Why are Automotive Lighting Sales Surging in India?

The Indian automotive lighting industry is mostly driven by increase in production of vehicles. Growth of the population and increase in purchasing power of customers are also accelerating the sales of new vehicles in India, which is also impacting demand for automotive lighting, both, automotive rear lights and automotive front lights, in a positive way.

The automotive after market plays a crucial role for lighting manufacturers, as the condition of roads in India often can cause injuries. Attributed to these trends, the market for automotive lighting is expected to capture a market share worth 58% until 2031.

Why are Passenger Vehicles Key Beneficiaries of Automotive Lighting?

The market share of passenger vehicles is significantly higher than other types of vehicles. Demand for use in passenger vehicles is increasing due to rising income and lifestyle of the population.

People are preferring to have their own vehicle over public transport, which is accelerating demand for passenger vehicles, and, in turn, heightening demand for automotive lighting. Thus, passenger vehicles are expected to hold 50% of market share for automotive lighting.

What is the Scope for LED Automotive Lighting?

LED lights are highly energy efficient, compared to halogen or other headlights. LED lighting technology is used in many luxury and high-end vehicles, but nowadays, manufacturers have slowly started to use LED lighting solutions across vehicle types due to constant development in lighting technology.

In addition, they draw less energy from the vehicle which in turn increases energy efficiency, thus enabling automobile users to economize on costs. Thus, LED lights are expected to possess 40% of market share for automotive lighting.

Competitive Landscape

The market is moderately competitive in nature, with the presence of a large number of players operating in the space. Introducing latest technologies in the market is a key expansion strategy, as are collaborations with OEMs and maintaining long-term relations with them for future business prospects.

  • In December 2020, OSRAM Licht AG introduced the Ostune E1608 and E3030 automotive interior lighting, offering a wide color temperature range from 2700 to 6500 K, which are highly energy-efficient
  • Likewise, in September 2021, HELLA KGaA introduced a new Modular Lightbar equipped with advanced LED technology for municipal vehicles. This light helps ensure optimum signalling effects as well as homogeneous illumination of the working area
