The global automotive LED lighting market was valued at $16 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $32.2 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2022 to 2031.

Lighting plays a vital role in automotive vehicles to illuminate the vehicle path, thus allowing the driver to get a clear visibility of the road. Along with meeting the need for illuminating the path of the driver, the lighting system helps other vehicle drivers and pedestrians on the road to detect the vehicle’s size, position, and direction of movement. It adds aesthetic look to both the interior and exterior parts of the vehicle and, at the same time, increases the conspicuity of the vehicle. The lighting system comprises lighting and signaling devices.

KGaA, Hyundai Mobis, Koito Manufacturing Co., Ltd., Koninklijke Philips N.V., Marelli Holdings Co., Ltd., NXP Semiconductors, Osram GmbH, Robert Bosch GmbH, Stanley Electric Co., Ltd., Valeo, and ZKW.

Growth in emphasis toward road safety

The demand for safety features along with adaptive lighting system has increased due to increase in number of road accidents worldwide. Vehicles with adaptive and advanced lightings can detect objects on the road; thereby, enabling the driver to take appropriate actions required. Rise in concern regarding road accidents, globally, fuels the demand for better safety features in vehicles, eventually leading to the installation of efficient lighting systems, which further boosts the growth of the automotive LED lighting market. Automotive lights are primarily installed to enhance the visibility in harsh environments and improve the vehicles conspicuity in critical conditions.

According to the World Health Organization’s report, nearly 1.25 million people die in road accidents each year, which includes a major portion due to improper lighting system in vehicle. Moreover, road traffic injuries leading to death are higher among teenagers. These factors increase the demand for adaptive and better lighting system in vehicles. Automobile companies, such as Hella KGAA HUECK & Co., are developing and introducing new lighting system equipped with different features such as communicating to the pedestrians to ensure safety and to meet the needs of the customers. Thus, rise in emphasis toward road safety drives the growth of the automotive LED lighting market.

Increase in demand for advanced technology in vehicle

With increased production and sales of vehicles across the globe, the demand for vehicles equipped with advanced technology has increased. This has led the vehicle manufacturers to develop and install latest components in the upcoming vehicle models. For instance, companies, such as Hella KGAA HUECK & Co., are developing and introducing new lighting system equipped with different features such as communicating to the pedestrians to ensure safety and to meet the needs of the customers.

Moreover, there are multiple new technologies such as Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS), and Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) which are introduced by vehicle manufacturers in their vehicles to provide convenience and comfort. The Adaptive Front-Lighting System (AFS) improves visibility by aligning the illumination axis with the steering direction and illuminating the direction of travel. The system controls the light distribution on curved roads based on the low beam. With the popularization of automatic brakes and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), High Beam Control (HBC) systems based on the high beam can automatically switch between low and high beam based on data input from installed cameras. Combined with AFS systems, the two increase the levels of situational awareness for drivers. Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) is an anti-glare high beam that automatically controls the illumination range based on the high beam. With this system, a distant high beam that improves distant visibility raises the illumination axis of the headlamps, and at low speeds, it has functions such as a wide-angle light distribution low beam that expands the illumination range to the left and right. In the future, in-vehicle lighting will likely be integrated into the vehicle mega-architecture to pursue synergistic effects with CASE technologies such as ADAS, autonomous driving, and V2X, as well as installing sensors in the lamp body, and expanding safety functions. Such developments in advanced lighting solutions are expected to propel the demand for automotive LED lighting market during the forecast period.

High cost of LED lights

The high cost of LED lights is a crucial concern for the automotive LED lighting market. Nowadays, LED bulbs are used with projector headlights, which are more expensive than reflector headlights and require more space within the vehicle. Meanwhile, halogen, xenon, and LED lights are commonly used lighting technologies in high-end or premium vehicles, owing to their benefits, such as reduced power consumption, cooler temperatures, and longer self-life of LED lights. However, halogen lights have a major disadvantage of heating and energy-wasting, whereas LED bulbs are attributed with their high production cost materials such as indium gallium nitride, aluminum, gallium indium phosphide, and aluminum gallium arsenide. In addition, the complicated installation procedure for the acquisition of LED lights requires a high cost as compared to other options. This eventually increases the cost of LED lights used in automobiles; thus, restraining the growth of the automotive lighting market during the forecast period.

Increase in implementation of government regulations

Insufficient visibility was the prominent factor that accounted for increasing number of road accidents, globally. Governments across the world have formulated effective regulations pertaining to the use of lighting systems in automobiles. The European Union mandates the use of Daytime Running Lights (DRL) due to unfavorable weather conditions in this region. Currently, 17 countries in Europe have formulated effective legislations related to the installation of daytime running lights (DRLs). Since 2011, in European countries DRL have mandated for the cars, small delivery vehicles, buses, and trucks. The Motor Vehicles Safety Act (MVSA) in Canada mandated the use of DRLs in all vehicles. Additionally, numerous countries are taking active initiatives to curb CO2 emission levels in vehicles.

Moreover, developing countries such as Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRIC) are witnessing a rapid growth in the sales of automobiles. Automobile manufacturers across the globe are focusing toward manufacturing the vehicles equipped with advanced technologies such as advanced driving system, adaptive lighting system, and various other systems, which ensure safety and increase comfort while driving. This is expected to increase the demand for LED lighting system. Thus, rise in demand for automotive in developing nations has led to the growth of automotive lighting market; thereby, enabling the manufacturers across the globe to adapt new strategies to introduce new LED lighting products for the safety of passengers. Thus, the government regulations for the safety and security across the globe are anticipated to boost the growth of the automobile lighting market.
