Automotive Night Vision System Market Size worth $4.5bn by 2025
Published Date: June 24, 2019 Authors: Preeti Wadhwani, Shubhangi Yadav
Automotive Night Vision System Market size is set to reach USD 4.5 billion by 2025; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. The worldwide industry unit shipments are expected to grow at CAGR of over 17% by 2019 to 2025.
The automotive night vision system market has witnessed lucrative growth owing to the need for vehicle safety features and minimizing accidents occurring particularly due to low light conditions. The visibility in vehicles having low beam headlights can be extended considerably with the help of night vision systems. The technological advancements in the market have made the systems highly capable. They can detect objects including children, cyclists, trucks, cars, and traffic signs. Moreover, these systems can also provide information on smoke, fog, and glare of oncoming vehicle headlights.
The automotive night vision system market mainly consists of near infrared and far infrared technologies for object detection. The near-infrared technology actively illuminates the object through the near-infrared spectrum and captures the radiations reflected from the object. These types of night vision systems provide an advantage to show the objects similar to their natural images with minimal interpretation required; hence, the information resembles with what is seen through the un-aided eye. The key difference can be a change in the brightness of the object. Near-infrared technologies can be adopted significantly in the automotive night vision system market with mature technology and reasonable costs. However, they have some drawbacks such as susceptibility to glare, streaking from light sources or traffic lights, etc.

The far infrared technology-based night vision systems detect thermal emissions from road surfaces and objects. An important drawback of these systems is that the images and information provided differs considerably from their original form, making it hard to interpret. The limitations of transmission through glass restrict the camera from being installed behind the windshield creating complexity in the system. However, these systems are not affected due to glares or light sources. The higher costs of these systems will affect their adoption in the automotive night vision system market.
Night vision camera, controllers, and sensors are major components in night vision systems. Thermal night vision cameras are largely used in the automotive night vision system market. BMW has implemented such cameras in its car models consisting of thermal imaging sensor and heated optical element. The sensors are made up of several sensor elements, which generate an electrical signal through heat radiations. Companies, such as Flir, are introducing night vision cameras capable of showing the information up to four times farther than the headlight range.

The North American and European countries are adopting new technologies in automotive such as connected cars, IoT, and autonomous vehicles. The computer vision or machine vision technologies have boosted developments in object detection. Moreover, developed countries have a higher demand for luxury cars. Audi recorded 7.8% growth in sales of cars in the U.S. in 2017. The autonomous vehicle trends will also be an important area of application in the automotive night vision system market. These vehicles will require sophisticated night vision systems to ensure a safe road drive.
ZF Friedrichshafen, Robert Bosch GmbH, and Autoliv are among the top players in the automotive night vision system market. The night vision systems are majorly adopted in premium luxury vehicles by companies such as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Toyota Lexus, and others. The manufacturers are focusing on increasing the market share with the introduction of highly capable night vision systems. Flir Systems provides thermal night vision systems, which can detect the hazards and objects in complete darkness without needing any light. The new technologies in the market developed by Autoliv and Denso Corporation have features including collision mitigation by emergency braking, which further improves safety.
The automotive night vision system market can face some challenges, which can hinder its growth. Costs will be a key concern for implementing these systems in the economy cars or mid-range cars. Currently, luxury cars will contribute to a higher share in the market. The night vision systems are embedded with multiple components including night vision camera, sensors, and control units, which are significantly expensive. Another restraining factor for the automotive night vision system market is the limitation of technologies. The systems can detect multiple objects, which can result in the distraction of the driver from the road. The thermal imaging used in passive night vision systems can show objects, humans, and animals emitting thermal radiation. However, the images are not clear and sharp. It also faces difficulties while detecting objects with a similar temperature as the outside environment. These technological challenges can hamper the market.
