Heavy Reliance on Automotive Manufacturing Hampered Product Demand amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has severely impacted various industries and the worldwide economy. The pandemic has forced the entire automotive sector to rethink its short-term plans and strategies on redefining mobility in the present as well as the future. Certainly, the crisis has put tremendous pressure on auto manufacturers to free up resources through cost-cutting and streamlining propositions across the complete value chain and to prioritize investments that allow the highest probability of capturing returns. However, with the current level of competition, automotive companies are planning on investments that make mobility smarter. Globally, people with vehicles delayed inspections and optional repairs, and some government transport businesses rested their deadlines for obligatory technical controls and inspections. Moreover, individuals around the world with vehicles paused inspections and optional repairs, and some government transport businesses rested their deadlines for obligatory technical controls and inspections. This hampered the demand for the global automotive camera cleaning system market.

In 2021, worldwide governments are enacting proactive monetary policies to help various industries recover from economic losses due the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic is nearing its end in many nations, the automobile sector is expected to revive the automotive camera cleaning system market. In the upcoming years, manufacturers will need to be more selective when deciding technology investments. The massive investment in technology in previous years was aimed to secure a prosperous future, while in some cases, they have been premature. This led manufacturers to overextend themselves. As camera cleaning system providers continue to cope with the financial slowdown of the pandemic, they are more likely to focus their attention on investments that generate returns in the short term. In addition, auto producers are expected to invest more toward vehicle protection accessories and more so in automotive camera cleaning systems.

Innovations in Automotive Cameras Using Technology Propel Automotive Camera Cleaning System Market

The global transportation sector is presently slipping toward autonomous vehicles. This change comes with hurdles such as recognizing obstacles, identifying its surroundings, and acting safely based on these understandings. However, a significant challenge lies in keeping the sensors clean from dirt and debris, which tend to accumulate on the lens of the sensors when the vehicle is moving. Presently, there are several camera cleaning systems available in the market, mostly used for parking-aid cameras, such as the rear-view camera. Most of these cleaning systems include a fixed high-pressure water nozzle sitting near the edge of the camera lens, directed at the lens with a low contact angle. This type of cleaning system is long lasting and cost-efficient, and uses a relatively low amount of fluid as compared to a headlamp cleaning system due to the small camera lens area. In addition, there are many camera cleaning suppliers with static nozzles, such as dlhBowles, Ficosa, Valeo, and Continental.

The sensors on autonomous vehicles vary in shape and properties. However, finding an effective cleaning solution that works for all types of designs can be challenging. The camera cleaning system can be used for exterior cameras that have low penetration in most areas, except for backup or parking cameras. There is a high demand for parking camera cleaners with an increasing number of automakers innovating the ways to display images. After the parking camera, front camera, side camera, and night vision camera are anticipated to be the key application segments of the automotive camera cleaning system market during the forecast period. Furthermore, a better quality, undistorted vision of a vehicle’s hidden zones can be presented to the driver using a wide-angle camera system. Nevertheless, the increasing integration of cameras in new vehicles is anticipated to drive the automotive camera cleaning system market.

Automotive Camera Cleaning System Market in Europe to Witness High Growth

Industrial advancements in emerging markets and global megatrends with industry 4.0 are also catalyzing the demand. Some regional factors have created new avenues for product development. Moreover, government measures to decrease accidents have led to necessary regulations concerning the use of cameras and sensors. Europe has witnessed an increased awareness about safety and security, and extended use of cameras for vehicle safety in applications such as 360 camera systems and parking camera systems. Owing to this, Europe holds major share of the automotive camera cleaning system market.

The Asia Pacific automotive camera cleaning system market, with its increasing number of emerging players and rising demand for automobiles, is expected to grow at significant CAGR during the forecast period. In 2020, the global automotive camera cleaning system market was valued over US$ 266.8 Mn, which is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 17.5% from 2021 to 2031.
