The increasing penetration of LED lighting in the automotive industry coupled with growing sales of passenger cars and commercial vehicles is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period. Moreover, government authorities and agencies across the world have been drafting effective regulations regarding the use of lighting systems in vehicles, which are anticipated to create significant growth opportunities for players operating across the value chain of the market.

Low visibility, particularly during the night time, has been a significant reason behind the increasing number of road accidents worldwide. A strong emphasis is being put on the vehicle headlights' performance as research continues to expose safety concerns. For instance, given the effects of unfavorable weather conditions on forward visibility, the European Union (EU) has mandated the use of Daytime Running Light (DRL). As such, 17 countries in the EU have drafted effective legislation related to installing DRLs in vehicles. In Canada, the Motor Vehicles Safety Act (MVSA) mandates the use of DRLs in all vehicles used in the country.

The adoption of LED lighting has gained traction in several industries and they have aligned with the plummeting LED costs over the past decade. LED lamps are used in automobiles owing to various reasons. Apart from consuming lesser energy and offering better durability and controllability, LED lamps can deliver instant brightness and cool daylight color, thereby improving visibility and reducing the light glare ratio compared to the adaptive high beam lights. Moreover, LED lamps can also be used as Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) and Center High-Mounted Stop Lamps (CHMSL).  

The growing adoption of the latest technologies in automotive lighting and increasing penetration of LED lighting in the automotive industry are anticipated to drive the demand for on-highway vehicle lighting. Automotive lighting has continuously been evolving as manufacturers seek innovative ways to strengthen safety, improve performance, and enhance aesthetics. Headlamps are particularly expected to witness developments in line with advancements in LED and laser technologies.

Prominent market players are coming up with laser headlights featuring advanced lighting technology. For instance, Osram provides its laser headlights to automotive manufacturers such as BMW and Audi. Models such as Audi R8 and R8 LMX, BMW i8, and BMW 7 series feature Osram’s laser headlights. Laser headlights provide luminance of up to five times higher than other light sources. They also provide a better high beam range of 300-600 meters as compared to conventional headlights.
