Region – Increasing Urbanisation in APEJ Makes it Critical to have a Presence in
APEJ is driving the global automobile market as vehicular density there is substantially lower than either North America or Europe, making it key for future growth prospects. Many customers would desire automotive interior lighting from either the OEM’s or aftermarket channel. Thus, the APEJ automotive interior ambient lighting systems market is expected to gain a massive 310 BPS point over the course of the forecast period.
Technology – LED is the Present and Future of the Automotive Interior Ambient Lighting Systems Market
It is hardly an exaggeration to say that LED technology represents the automotive interior ambient lighting systems market in its entirety as it accounts for more than 99% in terms of market share. LED’s are energy efficient, have a long service life, are compact yet produce a brilliant luminescence. Other technologies are unlikely to even come close to LED technology in the automotive interior ambient lighting systems market. The LED technology segment should have a value of approx. US$ 2.3 billion at the end of 2017. Ongoing R&D activities should further boost the prospects of LED technology in the automotive interior ambient lighting systems market.
Vehicle Type – Focus on Sedans and Compact Cars in the Automotive Interior Ambient Lighting Systems Market
Sedans and compact cars have more than half the market share in the automotive interior ambient lighting systems market by vehicle type in 2017 and are predicted to hold onto their leading positions for the foreseeable future. Automotive interior ambient lighting began with luxury and sports vehicles but has slowly made its way to sedans and now compact cars. The compact car segment is estimated to witness a robust CAGR of 6.2% from 2017 to 2027 as customization has become extremely important to compact car buyers as well.
Application – Centre Console & Dashboards First Touch Point in Automobiles
The centre console & dashboard is typically the first part of the vehicle that occupants see or touch and therefore key stakeholders in the automotive interior ambient lighting systems market give it the maximum attention. The centre console & dashboard segment has a market share of almost 40% in the automotive interior ambient lighting systems market and this is projected to rise to 41% by end 2027.
Sales Channel – Few OEM’s Opt for Automotive Interior Ambient Lighting Systems
The aftermarket channel dominates the automotive interior ambient lighting systems market as few OEM’s fit these systems into their products at the factory level itself. The aftermarket channel is assessed to cross a value of more than US$ 2.8 billion in 2027 because several customers choose to customize their vehicles with personalized interior ambient lighting systems.
