Road Safety Concerns Propel Development of Advanced Automotive Night Vision Systems

Growing concerns about night accidents continues to fuel innovations in automotive technology for night vision. With the pervasiveness of technology and AI, new benefits are being brought as old technology gets upgraded. This has facilitated enhanced safety to both users and vehicles by avoiding pedestrians and obstacles during bad weather conditions and during night time. According to European Commission, about 50% of accidents take place during night drives, which propelled the adoption of advanced automotive technology. This initiated innovations and development of advanced sensor technology in automotive night vision systems to assist drivers by offering situational awareness during low-light conditions. For instance, Teledyne FLIR has developed thermal vision kit that has FLIR Boson thermal camera and sensors. This gives a 100 meter vision in darkness with a wide view of the surroundings. This factor continues to influence the automotive night vision system market growth, as manufactures dabble further in developing advanced systems for vehicles.

Far Infrared Technology to Witness an Upswing in the Automotive Night Vision System Market

The adoption of FIR or Far Infrared technology in automotive night vision system is expected to soar at a momentous pace in the coming years, maintaining its status quo as the most used technology for this application. This is mainly due to the advantages that the technology provides, for instance a complete and a reliable detection of surroundings. This is carried out using a diverse band of electromagnetic spectrum through which far infrared sensors are able to detect an additional level of information which other sensor types fail.

Night vision systems have become common in automobiles. Various methods have been adopted to detect obstacles; however, their limited scope does not allow reliable sensing and imaging making it difficult to gauge the nature of the obstacle. On the other hand, cameras integrated with FIR technology can improve image detection and its perception even under low light conditions, in turn enhancing driver performance. Other features such as unidirectional light property, invariant images and temperature detection are expected to fuel the use of far infrared technology, consequently contributing towards growth of the automotive night vision system market.

Asia Pacific Loaded with Growth Opportunities for Automotive Night Vision System Market

Asia pacific region is poised to account for a significant share in the automotive night vision system market. Emerging economies across the region, especially China and India have shown lucrative growth opportunities in the past owing to their growing automotive sector. This trend is expected to maintain status quo in the forthcoming years, making these economies major revenue pockets that manufacturers and vendors of automotive night vision systems can leverage.

Moreover, increasing manufacturing of vehicles in the region continue to influence the adoption of advanced technology such as automotive night vision systems in a bid to avoid road accidents during night time. According to International Trade Administration, China is the world’s biggest automobile market in terms of both manufacturing output and sales. China’s domestic vehicle production is expected to touch 35 million automobiles by end of 2025. As per Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, sale of more than 25 million vehicles was witnessed in 2020 in the country. Overall, optimistic scenario of Asia Pacific is expected to create ample opportunities for automotive night vision system market growth in the future.

Automotive Night Vision System Market: Competitive Landscape

The automotive night vision system market is consolidated with presence of major players such as DENSO Corporation, Daimler AG, Hella and Autoliv Inc. Key players in the automotive night vision system market are focusing on new product launches and other growth strategies such as acquisitions and collaborations to enhance their market position. For instance, in 2021, Daimler AG unveiled its new “Night View Assist Plus” system that is integrated with infrared technology. Mercedes S Class is equipped with this system. It provides clear road outlook during low lighting conditions and automatically gauges pedestrians and focuses headlights on them along with other nearby objects to avoid collision.

On the other hand, in January 2021, FLIR Systems was acquired by Teledyne Technologies for US$ 8 billion. Same year, in May, FLIR Systems launched its European thermal imaging dataset for machine vision testing. This dataset features several annotated thermal images for daytime and night conditions along with weather scenarios across six European cities.

In January 2021, Night Vision introduced by Raytheon Commercial Infrared was adopted by Volvo Cars. Volvo announced its integration in Volvo XC90 SUV series. This technology has a 50% wider view of the field along with a combiner mirror HUD (Head-up Display). In April 2021, Hanwha Systems partnered with Truwin to develop high performance infrared sensors for vehicle night vision. The XGA-class night vision will enhance thermal imaging performance of cameras for detection of human heat due to its advanced temperature measurement function. This will be an apt choice for self-driven vehicles or computer assisted driving.

Other players in the automotive night vision system market include Audi AG, FLIR Systems Inc., Continental AG, Omron Corporation, Magna Electronics, Bendix Commercial Vehicles Systems, Robery Bosch TRW Automotive, and Delphi Automotive PLC.

Our Research Methodology

Considering the volatility of business today, traditional approaches to strategizing a game plan can be unfruitful if not detrimental. True ambiguity is no way to determine a forecast. A myriad of predetermined factors must be accounted for such as the degree of risk involved, the magnitude of circumstances, as well as conditions or consequences that are not known or unpredictable. To circumvent binary views that cast uncertainty, the application of market research intelligence to strategically posture, move, and enable actionable outcomes is necessary.
