Looking to buy the report?

Germany’s automotive camera market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.22% during the forecast period. It is the largest automotive camera market in the world. The automotive camera market in this region is expected to witness a significantly high growth rate during the forecast period. Camera technology for the automotive industry in Germany is introduced for monitoring drivers’ attentiveness and may even act as an enabler for automated driving. There was an increase in installation of safety and driver assistance systems in light of the regulatory standards of CAFÉ, and EPA, as well as the NCAP Safety Assist Protocol program. In fact, the legislation in Europe mandates the installation of LDW systems in passenger cars, and this is expected to propel the demand for the LDW system camera segment during the forecast period. Thereby, the camera market would be highly driven by the significant demand for advanced driver assistance systems like lane-departure warning (LDW) systems.

Germany’s Automotive Camera Market- Drivers

Some of the key factors leading to the growth of the automotive camera market in Germany are:

  • Automotive safety applications in the country
  • Rising sales volume of light commercial vehicles
  • Stringency in the EC regulations
  • Influence of New Car Assessment Program (NCAP)

In terms of growth, the Germany LDW camera module market is projected to grow at the highest rate from 2015 to 2020. Automotive cameras have evolved significantly to integrate with the other safety systems of the vehicles, and assist the driver. For instance, the ZF TRW's lane departure warning system uses video camera technology that is integrated with an electrically powered steering to enable quick feedback for active lane keeping assistance. The video camera detects when the vehicle is drifting toward the lane markings and the electric steering provides the driver guidance through the steering wheel to stay in the lane.

Automotive cameras are vulnerable to damage and are not an all-weather sensor yet. With the increase in adoption of automotive cameras, manufacturers are focusing on the optimization of the vehicle sensor architecture in order to achieve significant adoption in the market. There have been several issues concerning the sensors and the image quality produced by these systems.

Automotive Cameras- Technological Developments

Camera manufacturers have been devising technologies that would improve the sensing quality of the cameras. Continental, one of the leaders in automotive cameras, devised a ProViu ASL360 camera to assist the drivers by stitching multiple images with an all-round 360-degree view, reducing blind spots and displaying pedestrians and other objects in the immediate vicinity. Omni Vision’s proprietary color high dynamic range (HDR) concept and processing technology enables its automotive sensors in the cameras to deliver a bright scene reproduction in the most demanding lighting conditions, achieving a dynamic range of up to 120dB in color and black and white.

The market has been segmented based on the vision technology type, application type, and vehicle type. The market for driving assistance systems is expected to lead the automotive camera market by application type in the region. The automotive direct view camera is forecasted to specifically gain profit during the forecast period, in the automotive drive camera market. The automotive camera manufacturers are looking for strategic partnerships with the established OEMs to achieve a contract to supply the entire camera systems to them.

Some of the key players in the market are:

  • Autoliv Inc.                                                                      
  • Continental AG
  • Delphi Automotive PLC
  • Denso Corporation
  • Panasonic Corporation
  • Valeo S.A.
