Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Vehicle Type, Passenger Car segment dominated the market in 2020”

Based on vehicle type, the market is segmented into Passenger Car and Commercial Vehicle. The Passenger Car segment is expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecasted period. Due to rising disposable income and the evolving lifestyle of the urban population, demand for passenger vehicles is rapidly expanding. The most essential component of the development in passenger cars is that people’s thinking has shifted from vehicles as a luxury to vehicles as a necessity. Furthermore, the automobile rental industry’s expanding economic prospects are driving passenger car takeovers. Passenger automobiles are the most common means of transportation in industrialized countries, and their use is growing in underdeveloped countries as per capita income rises.

“Amongst Technology, LED segment dominated the market in 2020.”

Based on technology, the market is segmented into Halogen, Xenon, LED and Other. The LED segment is expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecasted period. During the projected period, LED is expected to increase at the fastest rate. This could be due to a shift in light control technology that is more energy efficient. LED headlights have a wide range of capabilities and versatility, making them ideal for use in a variety of vehicle lighting applications. LED lights are commonly fitted in high-end automobiles due to their multiple advantages, including low power consumption, increased adaptability, and great aesthetic value. Furthermore, when compared to xenon lights, LED headlights have a lower impact on the driver on the opposite side, and as a result, this technology is generally recognized in the market. The segment’s expansion is likely to be fueled by a rising number of newly manufactured automobiles equipped with LED lighting systems.

“Amongst Application, BEV segment dominated the market in 2020.”

Based on application, the market is segmented in Front/Headlamps, Rear Lighting, Side and Interior Lighting. The Front/Headlamps segment is expected to grow at a higher rate during the forecasted period. The growing safety concerns while driving is one of the main factors for this growth. Automobile manufacturers are working on novel lighting technologies, with a focus on major lighting components like headlights. They are forming partnerships in order to stay ahead of the competition in the industry. Headlights are an important part of creating a safe driving environment at night. Volkswagen, for example, collaborated with Hella to produce IQ.LIGHT LED headlamps.

“Amongst Sales Channel, Aftersales segment dominated the market in 2020.”

Based on sales channel, the market is segmented in OEMs and Aftermarket. The automotive aftermarket consists of the replacement of halogen lights with LEDs in newly purchased vehicles and lights that are damaged. The demand for replacement of halogen lights mainly exists in developed countries

“Asia Pacific represents as the largest market.”

Research Methodology

Lighting is an essential component of automobiles and plays a critical role in vehicle safety. Road accidents kill over 1.35 million people each year, according to the Association for Safe International Road Travel. Furthermore, every year, 20-50 million individuals are injured or crippled as a result of traffic accidents or natural weather conditions such as rain, fog, dust, snow, and other factors. These figures demonstrate the importance of efficient illumination in automobiles in order to avoid catastrophic accidents, and this is a critical component for manual driving. Various governments are taking steps to raise awareness about the need of driving safely, and one of the major components that must be considered while driving is automotive lighting. In today’s automobiles, a wide range of lighting is available, including headlights, taillights, accessory lights, LED lights, fog lights, emergency and warning lights, off-road lights, and signal lights.
