A light vehicle wiring harness is a set of wires and connectors that link  various electrical components of a vehicle. It is typically used to connect different components of an electrical system, such as headlights, taillights, dashboard, stereo, and engine. Wiring harnesses are made of high-quality materials that can withstand the extreme temperatures and vibrations of a vehicle. They are designed to be resistant to corrosion so that they last for many years. The global light vehicle wiring harness market has been categorized by various applications such as body and lighting, engine, HVAC, chassis, dashboard and cabin among others. Wiring harness is made of different materials such as copper, aluminum among others. However, owing to high conductivity, consistence, and high ductility, copper is preferable raw material. Aluminum is also gaining the market share due to its light weight compared to copper. 
 
Increase in demand for vehicles, advancements in technology and the growing production of electric vehicles are the major drivers of the light vehicle wiring harness market. The growing demand for vehicles has led to an increase in the production of vehicles and the need for wiring harnesses in them. In addition, the increasing use of advanced technologies such as autonomous driving and connected vehicles is also driving the growth of the light vehicle wiring harness market.
 
The increasing adoption of electric vehicles (EV) is further propelling the demand for wiring harness in the global market. In 2022, the sales of EVs crossed 8 million globally, where around 50% share was occupied by China alone. The sale of EVs is expected to cross 35 million units by 2030. This trend encourages wiring harness manufacturers to invest heavily in enhancing their production capacity. For instance, in July 2022, Sumitomo Wiring Systems Ltd opened its third automotive wiring harness manufacturing facility at Royal Group Phnom Penh, a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) in Cambodia.
 
Li-Fi Technology  in Wiring Harness
Automotive wire harness is used to connect different electronics and electric components in a vehicle to enable power supply and communication. These wiring systems are expensive and heavy, that reduces the vehicle efficiency. Hence, by reducing its weight, the fuel efficiency can be increased. Li-Fi technology can be used in wire harnesses to provide improved data transmission capabilities. This technology is based on the use of light instead of electricity for the transmission and reception of data. Li-Fi harnesses allow for much faster data transfer rates than traditional wired systems. The use of Li-Fi in wire harnesses can also reduce the size and weight of the harnesses, as well as reduce the amount of energy consumed. In addition, Li-Fi technology is a more cost-effective solution than traditional copper wiring, as it requires fewer components and additional equipment. This makes it a great option for automotive applications, where weight and size are important considerations.
