The global automotive lighting market is anticipated to attain a valuation of US$ 37.1 billion in 2023 and is predicted to reach US$ 69 billion by 2033, trailing a CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period.

The growing demand for automotive lighting is fuelled by the rising adoption of advanced lighting in vehicles. Leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are prioritizing the development and integration of advanced lighting solutions to enhance both vehicle visibility and aesthetics. Notably, Hella GmbH is actively involved in the development and provision of cutting-edge automotive lighting systems. These lighting systems offer various functions, such as pedestrian communication, to ensure safety and meet customer expectations.

Stringent lighting regulations have propelled developed countries to focus on the vehicle lighting industry in Europe and North America. Adequate vehicle lighting is crucial, particularly for travel on busy highways. Governments globally prioritize road safety, as highlighted by the World Health Organization (WHO), which reports 1.3 million annual fatalities from road traffic collisions. Many countries experience a 3% GDP loss due to road accidents. Therefore, enhancing driving conditions is essential, and improving the lighting system plays a significant role in achieving this goal.

In 2011, the European Union has made it compulsory for all new motor vehicles to have daytime running lights (DRLs) in order to enhance road safety. DRLs are designed to improve the visibility of the vehicle for other road users rather than aiding the driver's vision. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), DRLs have resulted in a 13.8% reduction in fatal road accidents. Such regulatory measures are expected to significantly influence the growth of the global automotive lighting market.
