Automotive Fog Lights Market Overview


Fog lights are the most important parts of a vehicle. They are situated at the bottom of the headlights in a vehicle. Fog lights are also placed on top of bumpers to provide the drivers with an indication. They help in viewing clearly the condition of the road in darkness. Therefore, automotive fog lights are in great demand among vehicle manufacturing companies. Fog lights are totally different from driving lights. The automotive fog lights market value is expected to reach USD 45 billion in the forecast period. The CAGR rate is estimated to be around 7% by 2023. Due to the sales of new vehicles, the automotive fog lights market has been experiencing huge growth in recent years.


COVID-19 Analysis


The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted the supply chain of the automotive fog lights market globally. The pandemic has not only affected the manufacturing industries but also has affected the sales of vehicles across the world. Therefore, the demand for electric and conventional vehicles was expected to witness a downward growth rate in 2020, thus affecting the market.


Market Dynamics



  • Drivers


The major driving factors that make the automotive fog lights market look very positive are the quick increase in the sales of brand new vehicles, development of fog lights by various industries, increasing concern over road safety, and the continuous shifting of the aftermarket services.



  • Opportunities


The rising preferences for fog lights among the vehicle manufacturing industries in order to maintain road safety is one of the major opportunities that has knocked the door of the automotive fog lights market.



  • Restraints


The underdeveloped aftermarket services have led the growth of the automotive fog lights market to hold back. Also, the high cost of LED lights has become a main concern for the industry. Halogen and HID have now become obsolete with the advent of LED. Halogen lights get heated up faster and waste a lot of energy and the HID is a complex lighting system. Hence, the LED is easier to use and provides a lot of advantages.



  • Challenges


Despite having so many driving factors to enhance the growth of the automotive fog lights industry, there are a few challenges that the market may face during the forecast period. The strict regulations imposed by the governments over vehicles and road safety with no certification for objection is a major challenge that the automotive fog lights market is going to face in the coming years.



  • Cumulative Growth Analysis


The global automotive fog lights market is expected to grow at a face pace in the forecast period, between 2021 and 2023. Hence, the market is going to adopt a positive market outlook in the coming years. The market for automotive fog lights is expected to reach USD 3,928.5 million by 2023. The CAGR rate is calculated to be 6.92% in the forecast period. As the number of fog lights manufacturing industries are increasing in the market, the demand for fog lights amongst various companies is also increasing.


Technology Analysis


Based on technology, the automotive fog lights industry is segmented into three categories. They are the LED, Halogen, and HID. The LED (Light Emitting Diode) fog light section is estimated to show a higher growth rate in the automotive fog lights market revenue during the forecast period. The benefit of using a LED fog light is that it utilizes less power as compared to other lights and the price of such lights is quite low as well. These factors are expected to drive the growth of the market in the upcoming years.
