Historic market outlook for the Automotive Optoelectronics Market

The automotive optoelectronics market has witnessed a historic growth rate of 3.70 % from 2017 to 2021. The sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on public health, business, as well as the electronics and manufacturing industries.

Plant closings resulted in global production losses for automotive manufacturers mainly in the first and second quarters of 2020, automotive production fell by a total of around 9.6% (approximately 7.7 million vehicles), and OEMs manufacturer reduced their capacity planning requirements for supplier parts, including electronic components and semiconductors. Many manufacturers shifted their capacity to towards IT and consumer electronic products to fulfill the rising demand in covid-19.

At the end of 2020, demand for the automotive industry has risen again surprisingly more than the projected demand for the automotive sector owing to the COVID shutdown. As a result, in the fourth quarter of 2020, bottlenecks in the production and supply of electronic components for the automotive industry arose, mainly among suppliers. Meanwhile, and as of 2022, almost all automotive manufacturers reduce or (temporarily) stop vehicle production due to a lack of electronic components. However, the market is estimated to grow in the forecast period, with manufacturing facilities in the electronic industry resuming full-capacity operations to meet the growing demand from end users for optoelectronic components across various industry verticals.

What are the Various Factors Driving the Automotive Optoelectronics Market?

In the automotive industry, optoelectronics is gaining popularity because of its wide application. In automobiles, optoelectronic devices can be used for occupant detection, drowsy driver detection, night vision, optical immobilizer, automating vehicle functions such as lighting and brakes, and remote keyless entry. Every automobile manufacturer is heavily investing in developing a wide range of cutting-edge optoelectronic devices in order to entice customers with convenience and ease.

A healthy improvement in the economy has changed people's lifestyles and demands in every industry. The growing disposable income has changed consumer behavior along with the new lifestyle. These factors have positively influenced the demand for luxury vehicles across the world, especially in developing countries. The optoelectronic system is required for luxury features such as autonomous driving and the integration of IoT and AI for a better end-user experience. LED lights, OLED and LED displays, and ambient lighting are increasingly being used in automobiles to provide luxury performance to end users. Rising demand for luxury cars is the primary factor driving the automotive optoelectronic market.

Strengthened government norms about safety and rising awareness among end-users are expected to boost the market significantly. As per the WHO, every year the lives of approximately 1.3 million people are lost as a result of road accidents. Speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and other psychoactive substances, distracted driving, driving fatigue, and unsafe road infrastructure is the main causes of these accidents. This change the automotive buying behavior of consumer towards safety, which is estimated to rise the demand for optoelectronics.

Luxury car manufacturers provide advanced safety features to their customers, as well as customization options. The rise in the production of vehicles, growth in the production and sales of hybrid and electric cars, and increased awareness about vehicle safety boost the demand for the global automotive optoelectronics market.

Which Factors May Hinder the Automotive Optoelectronics Market Growth?

LED lights, OLED displays, and LED televisions are integrated with optoelectronics for their operations. LEDs are both costlier and difficult to manufacture. Halogen lights are cheaper and easier to manufacture than LED lights. Xenon bulbs are brighter than LED bulbs, which are used in vehicle headlights.

Furthermore, LED manufacturing requires raw materials that are price volatile, such as aluminum, automotive plastics, electronic components, steel, and other resin materials, which restrain the market growth. Raw material Prices are affected by changing global economies, changing currency rates, natural disasters, and trade traffic. Adoption of alternative lights such as halogen lights, as well as high initial investment, are viewed as constraints. The easy availability and rapidly growing demand for these alternative products are the main factors that hamper the demand for the optoelectronic market across the world.

What is the Regional Analysis of the Automotive Optoelectronics Market?

North America is expected to dominate global automotive optoelectronics sales. Furthermore, the rise in luxury vehicle sales, increased automobile production, and the adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles will all have an impact on market growth during the forecast period.

South Asian countries are expected to experience significant growth in the automotive optoelectronics market as they transition into automobile manufacturing hubs. Furthermore, the easy availability of raw materials further benefits the market.

South Asian regional governments are enacting new safety standards to ensure the safety of end users. One of the key factors driving the Automotive Optoelectronics Market is consumers' increasing adoption of hybrid and electric vehicles, which, along with rising per capita income, changing lifestyles, government support, and infrastructure investments are other factors benefiting the market.
