Report Scope & Overview:

The Automotive Exterior Smart Lighting Market Size was valued at USD 30.21 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 47.43 billion by 2030 and grow at a CAGR of 5.8% over the forecast period 2023-2030.

A motor vehicle's lighting system comprises of lighting and signalling systems installed on the front, back, sides, and, in some cases, the top of the vehicle that illuminate the roadway for the driver.

The technology also improves visibility, especially in low-light situations. It alerts other drivers and pedestrians to a vehicle's presence and travel direction. In the rear and front lighting functions of automobiles, the need for automotive exterior smart lighting systems has been steadily increasing. Modern vehicles rely heavily on automobile exterior smart lighting technology for sophisticated headlamps and tail lights, fog lights, DRLs (daytime running lights), turn indications, signal lamps, parking lights, CHMSLs (centre high mount stop lights), and number plate lights. Headlamps, on the other hand, will continue to be a substantial revenue contributor in the car exterior smart lighting industry for the foreseeable future.

Impact of Covid-19:

COVID On a worldwide scale, the 19 outbreak has impacted the automotive supply chain. The outbreak has impacted not only global production facilities, but also global automobile sales. The suspension of manufacturing facilities and new vehicle sales has had an influence on the manufacture of automotive lighting components, which has had an impact on the global market. In 2020, demand for both conventional and electric vehicles is expected to decline, further affecting the worldwide market. Furthermore, the budget for R&D is going to be drastically reduced, which is expected to stymie the development of novel automotive lighting solutions. Lighting consumption is generally related to vehicle output.

Key Players:

Hyundai Mobis, Lumax Industries, Stanley Electric Co. Ltd, Valeo Group, Koito Manufacturing Co. Ltd, OsRam Licht AG, Magneti Marelli SpA, Lumax Industries, HELLA KGaA Hueck & Co. and Mitsuba Corporation , and other players.

By Vehicle Type:

In the worldwide automotive exterior smart lighting market, there are two categories of vehicles: passenger cars and commercial vehicles. Because of expanding disposable income, rising four-wheeler sales, and growing preference for automotive vehicles, passenger cars accounted for a considerable portion of the global market. Rising fuel prices, on the other hand, are expected to moderately limit the industry.

By Technolody:

The worldwide vehicle exterior smart lighting market has been split into halogen, xenon, LED, and others based on technology.

14. Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
