Top Impacting Factors
The significant factors that impact the growth of the global automotive camera industry include a rise in demand for passenger vehicles coupled with safety & security concerns among consumers, increase in number of road fatalities, high installation cost, growth in trend of installing advanced driver assistance system (ADAS), and legislations mandating installation of cameras in vehicles. Each of these factors is anticipated to have a definite impact on the automotive camera market during the forecast period.
Increase in Number of Road Fatalities
According to the fact sheet of the World Health Organization, road traffic injuries are the leading cause of death among people aged between 15 and 29 years. Around 1.25 billion people die every year as a result of road accidents. In addition, 90% of the world's fatalities on the roads occur in low & middle economical countries, though such countries have approximately 54% of the world's vehicles. Moreover, for most of the countries road accidents cost 3% of their GDP.
Such factors result in increased demand for vehicles which are equipped with cameras for safety & security of the vehicle, driver, and passengers. As the cameras incorporated in the vehicle can provide blind spot detection, drowsiness detection is expected to significantly minimize road accidents. Furthermore, road accidents cause considerable economic losses to individuals, their families, and to nations as a whole. Such losses arise from the cost of treatment as well as lost productivity for people killed or disabled by their injuries, and for the rest of family members, which in turn fuel the demand for automotive cameras, thereby supplementing the market growth.
High Installation Cost
The installation cost of automotive cameras is considerably high. In addition, latest technologies such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) require cameras for numerous applications such as lane detection systems, blind spot detection, lane departure systems, and others, which are expensive. Hence, high cost of the cameras is anticipated to significantly hamper the growth of the automotive camera market.
Legislation Mandating Installation of Cameras in Vehicles
Numerous legislations have taken the initiative of mandating the installation of cameras in the vehicles for safety purposes. According to the New Car Assessment Programs (NCAPs) policy, vehicles need to have safety ratings to encourage significant safety improvements in new car designs. Similarly, the national highway traffic safety administration (NHTSA) has announced that all the new light vehicles, including SUVs, trucks, and vans must be incorporated with a backup rearview visibility camera starting from May 1, 2018. Increased focus of the government on road safety is expected to fuel the growth of the market in the near future.
