Automotive Wiper System Market Trends

Development of various wiper technologies is anticipated to fuel market growth

It is a basic requirement for all vehicles operating on public roads to have a windscreen wiper. With technology increasing, numerous players are developing new technology to minimize the drivers' input. For instance, many automakers are now equipping their cars with automatic wipers or wipers that can detect rain. As a result, many premium automakers have created a new type of wiper technology that inserts the water nozzle within the wiper blades. This helps the windscreen to be cleaned more effectively while also removing the eyesight impairment caused by the water spray from traditional nozzles on the bonnet. According to figures from the China Automobile Dealers Association, China's luxury car sales in the first 11 months of 2021 exceeded 2 million units, up more than 5% year over year. Amid downward pressure on China's general car market, luxury brands also experienced growth for the third year. Autonomous wipers were formerly only seen in luxury vehicles, but now they are a common feature in many popular and economical vehicles. These rain-sensing wipers are driven by a motor in conjunction with a light sensor. Therefore, several automakers worldwide include automatic wipers in their mid to top-tier vehicle variations to gain an advantage. For instance, Ford introduced the small Hatchback Focus in the UK in March 2022. The mid and top Titanium grades of the vehicle have rain-sensing wipers. Therefore, the demand for automatic wipers and other technology is expected to rise along with the demand for luxury and passenger cars in many nations.

Due to increased sales of SUVs, hatchbacks, and cross-overs, wiper adoption is expanding globally. Despite supply chain issues and an increase in inflation, the International Energy Agency (IA) estimates that global SUV sales will increase by around 3% between 2021 and 2022. Around 46% of all new automobiles sold globally in 2022 were SUVs, with notable growth observed in the U.S., India, and Europe. Additionally, an increasing number of SUVs were electric, accounting for nearly 16% of total SUV sales in 2022, which was higher than the average market share for EVs. Therefore, the expansion of the automotive wiper system market is being driven by growth in the sales of both passenger and commercial cars. Over half of all electric car sales worldwide in 2022 were electric SUVs. In 2022, more than 400 electric vehicle models were available on the market, with over 55% of those being SUVs, up from around 40% four years earlier. Thus, an increase in SUV demand is anticipated to fuel the expansion of the automotive wiper system market over the coming years.

Increased attention to vehicle safety is driving up demand for rain-sensing wiper systems. By detecting rain or snow and automatically turning on the wipers, rain-sensing wipers eliminate the need for human intervention. Vehicle safety is increased by the rain-sensing wiper technology, which reduces driver distraction. There is considerable demand for rain-detecting wiper systems in Europe and North America. Light-duty commercial vehicles with rear wiper systems are becoming more popular, increasing the market value for automobile wiper systems. Globally, governments are enacting strict laws governing automobile safety. Consequently, it is anticipated that this will increase demand for automotive wiper systems over the coming several years. Thus, driving the automotive wiper system market revenue.

Automotive Wiper System Industry Developments

May 2022: TruPower is a new line of wipers from Schaeffler. The wiper blades are available in Premium Plus and Ultra Premium models with and without frames and have distinguishing features. The blades were designed to provide excellent wiping performance and enhanced visibility in any condition. The Schaeffler TruPower Label Wipers' upgraded rubber includes a graphite coating for better and quieter wiping.

February 2022: The Bosch ENVISION and FOCUS wiper blades are two new wipers from Bosch. The two blades can survive the challenging nighttime driving conditions, helping travelers arrive at their destinations without incident. Additionally, the wipers contain a SafeCheck indicator that encourages safer nighttime and inclement weather driving by alerting users when it's time to check the performance of their wiper blades.

February 2024: Tesla has revolutionized the automotive industry; for all its accolades, the company has fallen short on the automatic wiper system. Even the most hardcore Tesla fan can only cringe as the wiper blade squeals across a dry windshield or squint as the wipers can't keep up with the rain, sleet, or snow. However, it appears the company is set to roll out a critical update targeting the performance of its auto wipers.

Tesla's unique approach to automating wiper function is at the heart of the issue. Unlike traditional vehicles with rain sensors, Tesla's system leverages the vehicle's cameras and a computer vision neural network. This technology adjusts the wiper speed based on the detected precipitation intensity. However, for many users, the reality has been a system that is either overly sensitive, activating in clear conditions, or under-responsive during actual rainfall or snowfall.

This is not Tesla's first attempt to address the auto wipers' performance issues. In June 2023, Tesla announced a pivotal upgrade to its auto wiper system, Autowiper v4, signaling a leap forward from its 'Deep Rain' initiative. This new development, underscored by Elon Musk's assurance that "wipers will be super good," marked a shift towards a more sophisticated and responsive system. The technology would leverage a surround video technique, integrating data from all onboard cameras.  

Tesla's journey with the auto wiper system highlights the broader challenges and responsibilities of pioneering new technologies in the automotive sector. As the company pushes the boundaries of what's possible, particularly with its ambitious Full Self-Driving capabilities, addressing seemingly minor features like auto wipers is crucial.  

Tesla's refinement of the auto wiper system (again) demonstrates the company's responsiveness to customer feedback but also its dedication to improving vehicle safety and convenience under varying weather conditions. The outcome of these updates could serve as a benchmark for integrating AI and camera-based systems in automotive applications, potentially influencing future developments across the industry.
