Market Overview

The automotive adaptive lighting system market is expected to register a CAGR over 8% during the forecast period, 2020-2025.

  • The adaptive lighting system helps to switch downlight when the light comes from the approaching vehicle. Trends such as autonomous vehicles and electric vehicles are evolving vehicle lighting systems. Industry participants are working intensively on various new technologies for vehicle lights with various new functionalities and can be adapted to the continuously changing requirements of future vehicles.
  • Europe is leading the automotive adaptive lighting system market. In the region, the adaptive lighting system manufacturers are constantly developing new adaptive lighting solutions. For instance, in 2019, OSRAM Continental, a leader in the European lighting market, was founded in 2018 through a joint venture and has launched a smart digital HD headlamp system, a combination of the SMARTRIX-HD system and EVIYOS LED, a digitally controlled lighting system where no mechanical components are involved in controlling the cornering lights.
  • The advancement in automotive lighting systems such as LEDs and laser headlight systems has increased market competition among the players. Adaptive headlights use a grid of individual LEDs that automatically turns on and off based on the car's direction and oncoming vehicles detected on the road. The basic added advantage with laser headlights is that it provides a focused, long-range beam that can double the standard automotive high beams' reach. For instance, in the Magneti Marelli Smart Corner system, sensors are employed into headlamps and tail lamps to provide OEMs the required functionality for an autonomous vehicle and supporting lighting performance.

Key Market Trends

Front Lighting will Lead the Market

Adaptive front lights are a part of the active safety systems designed to make driving at night or low-light conditions safer by increasing visibility around curves and over hills. Advanced Front-lighting (AFL) system optimizes light distribution from the headlights according to the changing driving and road circumstances.

Depending on vehicle speed and steering input, the system projects the low-beam headlights in the direction the driver intends to travel. Thereby, it saves time and effort for the driver helping him to concentrate on driving. The system provides an optimized vision to the driver during the night and other poor-sight conditions of the road by adapting the headlight angle and light intensity. For instance:

  • Bosch intelligent headlight control utilizes a video camera to automatically adjust the low beam or high beam lights range. The adaptive lighting system not only controls the range or segmentation of the light, but it can also manipulate the width of the beam according to traffic conditions.
  • Whereas BMW Adaptive Headlights comes with optional glare-free High Beam Assist, which controls the headlights' main beam for proper illumination. In this system, an image sensor inside the front mirror looks after the lighting conditions and the traffic ahead of 400 meters.
Automotive Adaptive Lighting System Market Trends

Europe is Expected to Hold Major Market Share

Government norms and regulations drive the automotive market in Europe. These regulations have prompted OEMs to develop advanced automotive lighting systems. There has been a significant advancement in the safety and driver assistance systems, driving the adoption of automotive adaptive lighting significantly in the region.

Luxury car manufacturers and premium brands offer high-end cars, but now many automakers implement ADAS and adaptive lighting technology in entry-level cars. A consistent increase in the demand for compact and mid-sized cars equipped with advanced safety features will ultimately propel the growth of the region's adaptive lighting market.

Vehicle manufacturers in Europe are designing, prototyping, and testing the possibilities for external lighting. For example,

  • Volkswagen is working on a technology that projects a pair of red warning lines on the road when a car is turning around, thereby letting pedestrians know where the danger zone is and presumably eliminating the problem of backing out of a high-fenced driveway into the path of a cyclist on the footpath.
  • Similarly, in Hella adaptive headlight systems, the company’s VarioX® module is combined with a swiveling module. There is a cylinder that can be rotated in its longitudinal axis in the combination of the light source and the lens. The cylinder's outer surface generates different light distributions on the road, and the stepper motor turns the cylinder to the required position within milliseconds.
Automotive Adaptive Lighting System Market Growth

Competitive Landscape

The Automotive Adaptive Lighting System Market is dominated by various international and regional players such as Osram Licht AG, Valeo Group, HELLA KGaAHueck& Co., and Stanley Electric Co. Ltd. These companies are focusing on strategic collaborative initiatives to expand their market shares and profitability. In contrast, major automakers are offering adaptive headlights in their upcoming models. For instance,

  • In 2019, HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA, and the Fraunhofer Application Center for Inorganic Phosphors in Soest, has completed a prototype lighting system based on laser technology. The prototype for a high-resolution headlamp module consists of a laser light source in the headlamp.
  • Renault announced that the 2020 Renault Talisman would be offered with adaptive headlights with LED MATRIX technology and dynamic LED indicators. Renault also updated its minivan Espace for the 2020 model year. The model of the French brand is the first car, which included adaptive matrix beam headlamps.
