Digitalization of vehicle interiors and exteriors with LED lighting is one of the prominent technologies that has made its mark in modern vehicle lighting systems. The evaluation of highly functional, durable, and innovative products will have a significant impact on industry growth over the years ahead. For instance, recently, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of semiconductors, Osram Opto Semiconductors has partnered with ISELED Alliance for developing advanced solutions for automotive LED lighting. The German semiconductor manufacturer and ISELED alliance through this collaboration are looking forward to integrating effective hardware and software system to optimize LEDs.
Over the last few years, with the increasing importance imparted to aesthetic and ergonomics of the vehicles’ interior as well as exterior, the design approach of contributors in the automotive lighting industry has indeed changed. They are now giving preference for the advancement of infotainment systems that will turn out to be rather beneficial for them in terms of revenue generation. As of now, the extensive use of LEDs for deploying lighting systems in vehicles will further stimulate the automotive lighting market size. As per estimates, automotive lighting market size from LED technology will register a CAGR of more than 7% over 2018-2024.
The revolutionary development of high-performance light sources is also one of the approaches undertaken by companies to gain a competitive edge over their rivals in the automotive lighting market. The growing awareness among the product developers about energy efficient lighting systems has been encouraging them to adopt new business tactics focused around this parameter. Merely a few months before, LG Electronics acquired the well-known automotive lighting and headlight systems provider, ZKW Group. This strategic merger has allowed LG to extend its regional reach across U.S., China, Mexico, and several countries in Europe continent. The ZKW Group incidentally, is one of the leading providers of lighting systems to European automotive giants comprising Daimler, Porsche, Audi, and BMW which have already ditched the use of traditional lighting technologies. The new consortium of LG and ZKW is planning to develop intelligent lighting solutions which will provide high-resolution information collected from the sensors and automotive communication systems. Considerable investments poured in by technology companies in new product development with the intention to expand the product range is slated to propel the automotive lighting industry share.
In August 2018, the Canadian automotive product supplier, Magna acquired the headlight and lighting component provider, Olsa for expanding its automotive lighting business. With the acquisition of the Olsa, Magna has grown its lighting capabilities from designing and manufacturing of headlamps, tail lamps, and other lighting systems. Moreover, the acquisition of advanced technology will also help Magna better its portfolio in distinctive and featured lighting products. The rise in the integration of electronics in lighting systems and shifting focus of automakers toward styling will turn out to be rather fruitful for lighting product manufacturers.
All in all, it would be accurate enough to quote that the transformation in conventional lighting systems has enhanced automotive lighting market trends over the last few years. Tech companies have also been conducting continuous research and development activities to introduce optimized and cost-effective lighting systems. Powered by the surging utilization of modern lighting systems in next generation vehicles, automotive lighting market size will register a CAGR of 5% over 2018-2024.
