Report Description

Headlight Control Module is anticipated display a CAGR of around ~4% over the forecast period (2021-2027). A vehicle’s headlight control module is an electrical component that regulates illumination. The module helps to regulate the functioning of the headlights and horns by providing an automatic high beam. It may be changed between low and high light beam depending on the other direction for measuring the distance between the front automobiles during traffic with the use of a video camera. The market is expected to grow as manufacturers adopt headlight control modules, which are extremely useful while driving a vehicle, especially on the highway, where it tends to switch between low and high beam in response to oncoming traffic from the opposite direction, as well as growing concerns about road safety.

Insights Presented in the Report

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

Based on technology, the market is segmented into Halogen, LED and Xenon. The LED segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecasted period. LED headlights are often seen in high-end automobiles because to their numerous advantages, including lower power usage, more adaptable functions, and visually pleasing appearance. LED is the leading market for headlamp control modules because of these qualities, and this trend is projected to continue in the future

“Amongst Application, High Beam Assist segment dominated the market in 2020.”

Based on application, the market is segmented into On/Off, Bending/Cornering, High Beam Assist and Headlight Leveling. The High Beam Assist segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecasted period. The automatic high beam headlight control module is useful for driving, especially on highways, because it automatically shifts between high and low beams based on impending traffic from the opposite direction. During the forecast period, regulations surrounding driving and illumination, as well as increased traffic and consumer awareness about driving safety, are likely to fuel the expansion of this category

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

Based on vehicle, the market is segmented into Passenger Car and Light Commercial Vehicle. The Passenger Car segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecasted period. Adaptive headlamp penetration is higher in the passenger vehicle category than in the light commercial vehicle segment. The market in this category is likely to be driven by increased passenger vehicle sales and customers’ willingness to spend more for personal automobiles

“Asia Pacific represents as the largest market.”

Based on the estimation, during the projection period of 2021-2027, Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a higher CAGR. Due to increased consumer adoption and automotive sales, Asia Pacific is expected to develop at the quickest rate in the worldwide headlamp control module market. Because of their huge domestic car production and sales, China and Japan have the greatest market shares. Furthermore, manufacturers in these nations place a strong emphasis on technology improvements, especially lighting, which drives demand for headlamp control modules. The market would be pushed even higher by rising consumer per capita income and strong SUV sales in emerging markets like India. Because of the rise in luxury automobile sales, there has been a considerable need for headlamp control. Increased usage of these modules in lower and mid-segment vehicles is likely to create new potential for market growth in this region over the forecast period. Some of the major players operating in the market includes Hella KGaA Hueck & Co., Valeo, Continental AG, DENSO Corporation, Aptiv plc, Magneti Marelli, Renesas Electronics Corporation, Lear Corporation, NXP Semiconductors N.V., Koito Manufacturing Co Ltd etc.
