The Automotive Intelligent Lighting Industry: Key Insights & Statistics

automotive lightingAccording to a recent market intelligence report from BIS Research, the automotive intelligent lighting market was valued at $9.40 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach $15.08 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 8.44% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2023.

The growth of the automotive lighting industry is directly proportional to the growth of the automobile market. Thus, the factors influencing this industry are expected to give direction to the automotive intelligent lighting market. Some of these factors include

  • rapid urbanization
  • increasing disposable income
  • rising demand for personal transportation

These factors are likely to impact not only the vehicle market but also the growth of the automotive intelligent lighting.

Advancements in the Automotive Lighting Industry

At present, the automotive industry is at the apex of technological development with respect to implementation of safety standards in vehicles on public roads. This has fueled rapid advancements in the development of intelligent lighting systems. Over the years, the automotive lighting industry has witnessed market shifts from gas discharge lamps, to incandescent light sources, to light emitting diodes (LED), to laser technology and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs).

Moreover, this paradigm shift from conventional (i.e. fluorescent and incandescent) to contemporary (i.e. LED to laser) has enabled the industry to reduce atmospheric CO2 emissions, which in turn is an important factor for driving the global lighting market. Furthermore, though the initial cost of LED purchase and installation is higher, the operational cost is much lower and they offer long-term cost and energy savings over conventional lights.

Intelligent lighting also supports advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), which ensure safer driving with the help of such smart technologies as adaptive front lighting (responsible for improving visibility and optimizing the driver’s sight lines during poor conditions and nighttime driving) and intelligent ambient lighting systems.

Key Factors Driving the Global Automotive Intelligent Lighting Market

At present, positive factors driving growth in the automotive intelligent lighting market include increasing demand for luxury vehicles, increasing sales & production of these vehicles, greater emphasis on road safety, and increasing demand for comfort and luxury vehicle customization options.

Other factors expected to further spur the market include rising demand for adaptive headlights for two-wheelers, as well as opportunities to tap into emerging economies or developing countries that can further expand the geographic scope of the market.
