Dashboard segment is projected to witness fastest growth

In 2021, the dashboard segment is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period due to increasing sales of luxury cars, ability to illuminate and improve recognition of controls, and accessibility to switches and instrument panel on a dashboard. For instance, according to our findings, nearly 17,000 luxury vehicles have sold in India between January-June 2022, with an increase of about 55% over 11,000 units in the same period of previous year and this percentage is estimated to grow more in the coming years.

Additionally, ambient lighting in automobiles highly focus on door latches and enables passengers to exit easily and quickly. It also provides enough lighting for stationary and help vehicles to move, which is likely to boost the growth of the segment market rapidly in the coming years.

LED technology accounted for the largest market share in 2021

Increasing demand for LED lighting solutions since a LED light consumes 50% less energy as compared to other to create the same amount of light, which is a major factor driving the growth of the segment market exponentially over the coming years. With the usage of LED, the reduced energy can directly reduce carbon dioxide emissions by nearly 700 million metric tonnes. In addition, LEDs do not emit ultraviolet rays and are highly environmental-friendly; owing to all these properties, adopting LEDs in ambient lighting is projected to have a positive impact.

Furthermore, halogen technology is also likely to grow substantially over the forecast period owing to low cost and easy access to this technology across all regions around the globe. Due to its standard design, halogen lamps are much simpler to install and use. A distinct feature named plug-and-play is also attracting consumers to opt for this technology and is estimated to contribute significantly to the market growth.

Passenger vehicles segment held the highest market revenue share in 2021

The increase prevalence of passenger vehicles across the globe for traveling one destination to another and shift in consumer preferences towards luxury and attractive passenger vehicles, especially in developed regions such as United States, Japan, France, and Germany are major key factors propelling the growth of the segment market over the forecast period.

People from developed regions are highly attracted to stylish and attractive automobiles, which has resulted in higher adoption of passenger vehicles having ambient lighting and in a result the demand for automotive ambient lighting in these developed nations are projected to have a positive impact on the demand and expansion of the market in the coming years.

The North America region held the largest market share in 2021

Increasing number of sales of luxury vehicles and high incorporation of ambient lighting in various mid-segment and premium vehicles are key factors projected to drive the growth of the market in the region. Increasing research & development activities and growing focus on providing the most developed and innovative products in the region coupled with the wide presence of large automobile manufacturers such as BMW, Audi, Volkswagen Group, and Mercedes Benz are also likely to be major driving factors for the regional market over the coming years.

However, Asia Pacific is witnessing the fastest CAGR during the forecast period owing to rapid growth in the production and sale of automobiles especially in several developing nations including China, India, and Indonesia. An extensive increase in consumer disposable income and their spending capacity on premium vehicles along with the increasing prevalence of several type of LED lights in vehicles, are further anticipated to boost the growth and adoption of ambient lighting exponentially over the coming years.

Additionally, increasing government initiatives to promote sales of automobiles in the region and especially electric vehicle sales is also driving the growth of the ambient lighting market in the region.
