The Global Automotive Exterior LED
LEDs: lighting technology of the future

Their small size, powerful light emission, extreme reliability, low energy requirement and long lifespan support the widely held view that LEDs are the technology of the future for automotive lighting. Indeed, since the first edition of this report was published in 2005, the sector has continued to witness a blistering rate of innovation. The evolution of the LED module has outstripped and outpaced the expectations of the automotive industry - even the experts nearest the front lines of research and development.

Brand new research on the automotive exterior LED sector

This report highlights the findings of research conducted throughout 2010 by ABOUT Automotive in the automotive exterior LED market. It is largely based on our research, analysis and interviews with a number of industry experts, gathering individual perspectives.

The study updates and extends our previous analysis of this sector, published in 2005 providing some insights in a number of areas, including:
  • The market for automotive exterior LED lighting, determining the trends and topical issues;
  • The main manufacturers serving this sector, identifying how the market is divided in terms of market share on a regional basis; and
  • Trends in key product and process technologies, both current and future

The report provides answers to such vital questions as:
  • Will LED headlamps completely supplant HID Xenon, and how quickly will it erode the market share of Halogen lamps?
  • To what extent are vehicle manufacturers exploiting opportunities for visual brand identification and differentiation?
  • Will LED systems be cost-competitive with Xenon HID systems by 2015?
  • To what extent does the proliferation of packaging have on the potential to cause problems with serviceability and parts availability?
  • Do today’s early examples of application-ready, fully-packaged LED arrays point the way towards the standardised system architectures of tomorrow?
  • What are the implications of new Daylight Running Lamp (DRL) directives for LED implementation?
  • Do the advantages of LED emitters outweigh any potential safety shortcomings?

Report coverage:

Chapter two sets out our detailed market fitment, volume and value forecasts for exterior LED lighting applications for Western Europe, North America and Japan.

Chapter three reviews the technical trends and challenges that the sector currently faces. It evaluates how quickly LED headlamps’ performance, efficacy and cost-effectiveness are improving.

Chapter four provides brief profiles of a selection of the main players in the LED market, namely:
  • Cree
  • Nichia
  • Osram Opto Semiconductor
  • Philips Lumileds
  • Seoul Semiconductor
  • Stanley
