The market for adaptive lighting systems in South Korea is expected to reach USD 215 million by the end of 2020 with a CAGR of XX%. South Korea is among the most advanced automobile-producing countries in the world. The Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS) is a part of the adaptive lighting system commonly used in high-end passenger and luxury vehicles. The increase in the car exports is a significant driver of the automotive market for the country as well as other allied sophisticated and advanced systems.
Hyundai i40, Genesis and Equus are some models that have AFS installed. These systems use steering angle and vehicle speed to keep the field of vision wide by pivoting and leveling the headlamp. However, the market is stagnated by hikes and industrial disputes affecting the automotive industry and thereby affecting the adaptive lighting market significantly. Kia has AFS installed in the Cadenza model to help improve the cornering visibility by moving the headlight beam at upcoming turns.
The ALS optimizes the distribution of light from the headlights according to the driving and road circumstances. Adaptive LED and laser-based headlamps are commonly used for adaptive lighting systems in the country. Depending on vehicle speed and steering input, the system projects the low-beam headlights in the direction the driver is intending to travel. The system provides optimized vision to the driver during the night and other poor-sight conditions of the road by adapting the headlight angle and the intensity of the light. The system also helps to dim down light when light comes from an approaching vehicle and reduces the efforts of the driver for doing it manually. The ALS offers a steady distribution of light unaffected by the vehicle's position by maintaining the illumination axis that helps to prevent the other drivers from getting blinded.
This report has segmented the South Korean market for automotive adaptive lighting systems by application, component, vehicle type and consumer segment. The market for adaptive front lighting by application has significant adoption in the front, with 65% of the production of adaptive lighting taking place in South Korea. With the increased adoption of automotive LED, the market for adaptive lighting is expected to receive significant impetus to grow.
Among vehicle types, luxury vehicles have the highest application and will continue to grow at a reasonable rate. Hyundai, Kia, Audi, Nissan are some of the popular OEMs that have adopted ALS comprehensively in their premium vehicle offerings and are looking forward to integrating these systems more in their other offerings.
Some of the key players in the manufacture of these systems in South Korea are:
