Vehicle crash accidents are one of the leading causes of deaths across the globe. Increasing urbanization and high sales of automotive vehicles has led to spike in road accident related deaths in emerging countries like India. As per the Ministry of Road Transport and Highway, in 2019, 449,002 accidents took place in India leading to 151,113 deaths and 451,361 injuries.

Leading market players are developing low cost and compact automotive head-up display systems to promote and enable safer driving experience, reduce the number of road accidents, and improve the safety of driver and passenger in the vehicle. This factor is expected to increase the sales of head-up displays over the forecast period.

For instance, Jaguar Land Rover is currently developing its next-gen 3D head-up display technology which will offer a personalized experience to the driver and will also allow everyone in the vehicle to independently select their own infotainment. The developed HUD will beam real-time safety information in front of the driver and passengers can stream 3D movies directly from their seats.

Increasing government investment in developing electric vehicles and surge in demand for electric vehicles in emerging economies along with strict regulation implemented by developed countries regarding safety standards of automobile will fuel the growth of the automotive HUD market.

Growing awareness regarding reducing carbon emission and increasing efforts to reduce traffic congestion will promote the sales of electric vehicle. This is expected to positively influence the growth of the automotive HUD market.
