Pages: 71 Published: July 15, 2022 Report Code: GDAUS400722

This report provides a comprehensive overview of the automotive OE global lighting sector, major suppliers, top 14 markets, technology trends and market size forecasts.

Global Automotive Lighting Market Dynamics

All the major players in lighting are active in the development of LED headlamps and variable-beam adaptive headlight systems. Initially, fitment of smart lights. They automatically adjust to road traffic and switch between full and dipped beam automatically. The launch of the Opel/Vauxhall Astra in late 2015 took intelligent lighting technology into the high volume, compact segment for the first time. Such systems are now widely available, mainly still as options rather than as standard items, across the volume market, mostly in Europe and Japan.

Technical developments in the lighting market are continuous. Past examples include the integration of swivel technology into Xenon lights, allowing for enhanced visibility when turning corners. This has evolved into integrating lighting with GPS systems to improve the speed with which such systems turn themselves on, responding in advance to identifiable hazards. Automatic headlight range and height levelling respond both to oncoming traffic (to prevent temporary blinding of other drivers) and the weight of the car, so that the height of the lights is always constant.

The main lighting manufacturers’ products have long been differentiated less by fundamental technology than by unique features and their underlying engineering and design philosophy. They compete not only on cost and quality, but also on design, style and crucially derive much business from the longevity of their relationships with their vehicle manufacturer clients.

Global Automotive Lighting Market: PESTER Analysis

Political

Governments and regulatory bodies clearly have a long-standing interest and involvement in road-safety, reducing accidents, improving pedestrian safety and related factors. This tends to mean political involvement at times but this is less overt than in other automotive technologies, such as emissions reduction and the issues surrounding diesels. 

Economic

The move to LED front lights, and ultimately to organic LEDS (OLEDs), enables a rethink in terms of vehicle front end design. LED assemblies are smaller than halogen systems in general and certainly smaller than Xenon systems. They offer potential benefits in terms of weight reduction and therefore reduced fuel consumption, although the scale of this benefit is not easy to quantify at this stage. 

Social

Selling Xenon lights as options did not reach the fitment or penetration rates anticipated when they were first launched, largely due to their higher price. In a similar vein, the widespread take-up of full LED front lights may well require them to be made available as standard items, especially in the mid-market segments, rather than as an option for these too to see a rapid acceleration in their fitment for all their design and other benefits. 

Technological

Headlamps which can see around corners and automatically adjust their intensity and/or alter their beam direction are becoming increasingly widely available. They are seen as an important element in the industry’s drive to reduce accidents. This has led to closer cooperation between lighting set suppliers and suppliers of body control modules. 

Environmental

The lighting sector is not as directly impacted by environmental concerns, mainly around global warming, as other sectors. That said, new technologies such as LEDs reduce energy consumption by anything between 1/3 and 1/2, thus reducing the energy draw on the internal combustion engine and/or battery. 

Regulatory

Differences in lighting regulations can affect vehicles which are offered for sale in some markets or prevent private imports from one part of the world to another. For example, although European specified lights are accepted in Canada, such vehicles cannot be sold on into the USA, which limits their second-hand value. Hence, most European-made models which are sold in Canada are in fact the US-specified models.

Key Segments in the Global Automotive Lighting Market

The automotive lighting market is classified into halogen, HID Xenon, and LED front lights.

Halogen segment in the global automotive lighting market 

Halogen had lost out to Xenon in the mid-2000s, but because of the costs of Xenon light systems, halogen lights managed to retain a significant proportion of the market, especially in the entry and mid-market segments in developed regions and across emerging markets as a whole. However, Xenon has now lost out to LEDs. The price of LED systems has fallen rapidly as the technology’s fitment rate has increased and the technology has matured. LEDs are now steadily taking share from both halogen and Xenon lights.

HID xenon segment in the global automotive lighting market 

Having been the high tech lighting solution a decade or so ago, Xenon remained too expensive for many mid-market applications. As LED prices have fallen, they have penetrated segments in which Xenon was strong and even some where it was not. Improvements in the performance of LEDs and their falling prices as volumes rose have led to a major change in the lighting market. Although relatively new, Xenon is being rapidly overtaken by LED front lights.

LED front lights segment in global automotive lighting market 

The key drivers behind the increasing use of LEDs in front lighting are their increased performance and reliability and their falling cost especially relative to Xenon. As has been the case with Xenon, we expect Europe and Japan to lead the way in increasing the take-up of LEDs in front lighting applications. North America and other developed markets will follow in the European and Japanese markets’ wake, with emerging markets only adopting LEDs in any significant volumes at the end of the decade or even the early years of the next decade.
