Automotive Adaptive Front Light Market Trends

Growing concern toward road safety is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for automotive adaptive front lights is being driven by the rise in concern toward road safety. The demand for safety features and adaptive front lighting has increased due to a surge in road accidents worldwide. Vehicles with adaptive and intelligent lighting can detect threats on the path, allowing the vehicle driver to take appropriate actions. The rise in global concern regarding road accidents fuels the demand for better vehicle safety features, eventually leading to intelligent lighting systems and supporting the market's growth. Intelligent lights are primarily installed to enhance visibility in curve roads and improve the vehicle's conspicuity in critical conditions.

For instance, as per World Health Organization's published data in June 2021, nearly 1.3 million people die in road traffic accidents each year, which comprises a significant portion of improper vehicle lighting systems. These factors boost the demand for adaptive and intelligent lighting systems in vehicles. Therefore, increasing concern toward road safety drives the automotive adaptive front light market revenue growth.

An expansion in disposable income, improved lifestyle, and changing preferences of customers have positively impacted the sales of premium cars across the globe. Various driver assistance features, such as Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Blind Spot Detection (BSD), Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), are not mandated by laws or regulations. However, some premium car manufacturers offer these features to keep their position in the market, leading to healthy competition between automobile manufacturers. Car segments such as SUV-D and SUV-E are now provided with numerous premium features. Premium segment vehicle manufacturers are moving their product and R&D focus towards electrification. Major OEMs like Ford, Stellantis, and Volkswagen have declared their complete electrification targets by the end of the next decade. As a result, major luxury cars will be launching various EV models. Due to this, advanced lighting technologies, including LEDs, adaptive lights and ambient lights, will be more rapidly incorporated into cars due to their better efficiencies and temperature control than halogen and xenon HID technologies.

The increased demand for adaptive lighting systems and advanced lighting technology has been used to limit road accidents worldwide. Advanced lighting technology, such as the automatic adjusts of the headlamp beam to lighten the road at a wide-range adaptive front light system, makes it more comfortable for the driver to concentrate on the road. The advanced lighting technology will hence result in the expansion of the automotive lighting market. As per The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, driving at night hours, especially between 7 pm and 8 am, contributes to only a quarter of all travel by car, yet it contributes to 40% of fatal accidents. Pedestrians and roads with limited visibility result in a growing number of accidents. Hence, the limited number of roadway lights will enhance the demand for the automotive lighting market to decrease fatal accidents.

Automotive Adaptive Front Light Market Segment Insights:

Automotive Adaptive Front Light Type Insights

The Automotive Adaptive Front Light market segmentation, based on type, includes halogen and LED. The halogen segment dominated the market, accounting for 35% of market revenue (0.22 Billion). In developing economies, category growth is driven by the availability of advanced halogen or high-intensity discharge (HID) adaptive lighting systems from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) at a reasonable price. However, LED is the fastest-growing category due to the growing need for more energy-efficient lighting and high-performance lighting technologies, which has increased the demand for LED in the automotive adaptive front light market.

Automotive Adaptive Front Light Vehicle Type Insights

The Automotive Adaptive Front Light market segmentation, based on vehicle type, includes passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. The passenger vehicle category generated the most income (70.4%) due to an increase in the production of passenger vehicles provided with advanced safety features. However, commercial vehicles are the fastest-growing category due to the growing demand for adaptive lighting systems in heavy commercial vehicles, such as buses and trucks.

Automotive Adaptive Front Light Industry Developments

January 2024: The new European-adapted Adaptive Headlights by Tesla are now only available for the new Model 3.

When Tesla began producing and delivering the new Model 3 called “Highland,” one of the most obvious changes that can be seen is the headlights, together with other cosmetic updates.

Tesla is currently rolling out the newest Adaptive Headlights for the Model 3 Highland through software update version 2024.2, but at least for now, they're only applicable to European vehicles.

According to the release notes, these novel Adaptive Headlights will “adjust to reduce glare for other drivers and cyclists,” and they also still provide dimmed pixels on headlights that help improve visibility while driving in low light conditions at night:

Now, instead, the high beam adjusts down and away from oncoming drivers or those ahead whom you want to see. It detects other road users and selectively dims individual pixels of its headlights, thereby allowing it to remain on high beam longer and hence improving night vision.

February 2024 : QAF Auto Sdn Bhd has increased its offering in Malaysia based on the BMW3 series. The all-new BMW3 series Touring was presented at the QAF Auto Chinese New Year open house.

Standard adaptive LED headlights include slim contours and daytime driving lights shaped like an L turned upside-down. Additionally, outer elements of daytime running lights act as turn indicators. Adaptive headlight functionality also covers the stop/start operation of dynamic cornering lights and non-dazzling matrix main-beam functionality coupled with dynamic light range control with variable light distribution functions.

BMW has introduced the M Sport Pro package globally into its lineup for the first time, making it standard in the Sultanate.

Some exterior design highlights consist of extended M high-gloss Shadowline trim and signature BMW kidney grille with double bars finished in black. With full-color heads-up displays offered as standard equipment, drivers can additionally have relevant information within their field of view.

March 2023: HELLA, the automotive supplier operating under the FORVIA umbrella brand, is expanding its Black Magic product range with 32 new lightbars. The company is thus continuing a success story in Europe as well, as the headlamp series has already been a top seller in the USA for many years. It was also launched in Europe for off-road applications in early 2022.
