The automotive lighting market was valued at US$ 30.50 Bn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.3% from 2019 to 2027 to reach US$ 40.41 Bn by 2027.

The automotive lighting market has witnessed eminent growth in the last couple of years globally. A handful of companies have ventured into the manufacturing of lighting systems, and therefore, it is a consolidated market with very few players. The automotive product lighting is aimed at eliminating the hassles associated with the blinding of oncoming traffic by high beam light of an individual vehicle. In Europe, the region has a robust automotive industry, which plays a significant role in boosting the growth of related automotive products. In this region as well, rules and regulations are formulated to ensure road safety of both driver and passenger. Since 2011, the DLRs are compulsory for all small delivery vans and modern cars; buses and trucks followed in August 2012. Under this, the vehicles which were produced before implantation of this rule have to be retrofitted. On the other hand, APAC is expected to be the region experiencing enormous opportunities for automotive manufacturers as well as providers of automotive lightings. South Korea, China, Japan, and India are some of the major countries which have a strong foothold in the Asian market.
