Automotive interior: please take a seat in a high-tech living room…
“Automotive interior enhancement is becoming a key segment for electronics and semiconductor industries.” asserts Pierrick Boulay, Solid State Lighting and Lighting Systems within the Photonics, Sensing & Display division at Yole Développement (Yole). “Following the aforementioned regulation trends, the in-cabin sensing market will observe the highest CAGR until 2025, at 63%. This segment will reach US$2.6 billion in 2025, with driver
monitoring systems representing 73% of this revenue”.
In this context, the market research & strategy consulting company investigates disruptive sensing, lighting & display technologies. Its aim is to point out the latest innovations and underline the business opportunities. Released today, the Automotive Interior – From Lighting to Sensing and Display Technologies 2020 report provides a comprehensive overview of the Sensing – Lighting – Display technologies that are currently used or under development for interior car applications…
What are the economic and technological challenges? From sensing to lighting, including display, what are the most important expected growths? What is the status of the competitive landscape? Who are the most innovative players to watch? What are the supply chains per applications?
Yole has combined its extensive sensing, lighting, and display expertise to presents today its vision of the automotive interior industry.
There is clearly general trend that has been going on for many years, helping the OEMs to personalize their interiors.
That is the interior lighting market, which will increase 45%, from US$3.1 billion in 2020 to US$4.6 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 8%. The COVID-19 crisis’ impact on vehicle sales will not be felt as much by the interior lighting market since there is increased content in newer cars.
The same trend can be observed in automotive displays. Clusters have been digitizing, infotainment systems have been going the full flat-panel display route, and all that while observing an increased average panel size, bringing market value to US$15.5 billion by 2025. Of course, LCDs will keep dominating the market but emerging technologies like miniLED and microLED displays will gain share, reaching 13% penetration rate in interior displays by 2025.
According to Martin Vallo, PhD, Technology & Market Analyst specialized in solid-state lighting technologies, within the Photonics, Sensing & Display division at Yole: “By 2022 in Europe and 2024 in the United States, driver monitoring systems are expected to become mandatory, as the level of distractions felt by a driver has reached a climax. Phone conversations, texting, emailing, watching movies and so many different elements that have helped increase the comfort for drivers, as well as their passengers”... More info.
