Automotive Lighting Market is Projected to Expand at Over 6.4% CAGR by 2032

The global automotive lighting market is set to enjoy a valuation of US$ 36.8 billion in 2022 and further expand at a CAGR of 6.4% to reach US$ 68.2 billion by the end of 2032. Manufacturers of automotive lighting are focusing on improving the efficiency of lights. In addition, these lights consume lesser energy. Due to the factors mentioned above, the demand for automotive lighting has increased over time. As of 2021, the expected valuation for the market is US$ 25 Bn.

Historically, from 2016 to 2020, the sales of automotive lighting exceeded the sales of US$ 20 Bn by the end of the aforementioned period. As the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, sales of vehicles observed a decline in the initial quarters, attributed to substantial shortfalls in automotive output amid mandatory lockdowns. However, since Q4 2020, restrictions have been lifted. This, in turn, is expected to upsurge the sales of automotive lighting.

What is the Commercial Potential of Automotive Lighting?

Apart from vehicles, lighting is used in industrial & commercial applications. Industrial lighting is mainly found in factories, chemical plants, and manufacturing plants, while commercial lighting is found in homes, offices, restaurants, schools, and any other commercial centres.

Lighting technology has made advancements in all segments over the years. Manufacturers are trying to improve the efficiency of lighting solutions for automotive as well as industrial use. Halogen, LED, and xenon headlight technologies are driving market expansion across regions. The potential for the lighting market is not only limited to automotive but across many different sectors.

What is the Scope for LED Automotive Lighting?

LED lights are highly energy efficient, compared to halogen or other headlights. LED lighting technology is used in many luxury and high-end vehicles, but nowadays, manufacturers have slowly started to use LED lighting solutions across vehicle types due to constant development in lighting technology.

In addition, they draw less energy from the vehicle which in turn increases energy efficiency, thus enabling automobile users to economize on costs. Thus, LED lights are expected to possess 40% of market share for automotive lighting.
