Automotive Camera Cleaning System Market: Overview

  • The global automotive camera cleaning system market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of ~23% between 2019 and 2027
  • In terms of application, the parking camera segment held a leading share of the automotive camera cleaning system market; however, the CMS (Central Monitoring System) camera segment is anticipated to expand significantly, due to a surge in the demand for advanced driver assist system in vehicles
  • Automakers are focusing on the manufacturing of compact and lightweight components and systems in their vehicles, which is anticipated in boost the nano nozzle segment during the forecast period
  • Rise in integration of automotive camera cleaning systems is primarily driven by an increase in investment in safety features incorporated in vehicles and a change in regulatory norms for traffic safety. Camera cleaning systems are fitted on exterior cameras, as these cameras are more susceptible to contamination by foreign materials. 

Drivers of Automotive Camera Cleaning System Market

  • The automotive camera cleaning system market is expected to expand at a significant pace, as it is helpful in cold and tropical regions, such as North America and Europe, owing to higher chances of deposition of snow and mud on camera lenses
  • Expansion of the automotive camera cleaning system market can also be attributed to the increase in integration of cameras in newer vehicles that are fitted with safety systems. Park assist camera is a highly common system, which is mounted at the rear end of the vehicle. Deposition of dirt or snow on the camera is expected to reduce visibility and consequently, OEMs are more likely to adopt camera cleaning system for mounted cameras.
  • Camera based technology has improved significantly in the last two decades. Moreover, safety features, such as blind spot detection, lane keep assist, and other ADAS based technologies, depend exclusively on the automotive camera. Increasing penetration of cameras in vehicles is fueling the demand for automotive camera cleaning systems.
