Growth Drivers and Top Challenges
Automotive night vision systems are instrumental in prevention of accidents. The world over, these systems are gradually becoming a significant part of passenger cars. Given its ability to go beyond the vehicle’s headlights, an automotive night vision system helps elevate the driver’s perception in poor visibility weather conditions as well as darkness. The system alerts the driver of any oncoming animal or pedestrian by showing a red image at the front of the vehicle. The width and length of the danger zone are dependent on the vehicle’s speed.
Automotive night vision systems also find great use in military ground transport vehicles including trucks, tanks, armored personnel carriers, and humvees. With the changing end-user requirements, a variety of technologies are emerging that are helping advance the automotive night vision systems. Rising concern regarding accidents during night rides works in favor of the automotive night vision systems.
The penetration rate of night vision systems in luxury and premium cars is quite high, and these vehicles have a broad customer base in developed regions like Europe and North America. With rising sale of luxury and premium cars in these regions, the worldwide market for automotive night vision systems market is bound to see immense profits in the coming years.
The worldwide Automotive Night Vision System Sales has been segmented with respect to technology, components, system, and vehicle type.
Depending on technology, the market includes Far Infrared (FIR) and Near Infrared (NIR). Between these, Near Infrared (NIR) was identified as the leading segment in the global market in 2016, considering the market revenue. The segmental dominance is the result of a host of advantages the technology delivers, including aiding the driver in noticing warmer living things as clearly as spotting colder, dead animals or objects.
