An automotive defogger system is used to improve visibility through the windows and windshield in a vehicle during winter and monsoon seasons. This system clears frost and condensation from windows and windshield of the automotive. Increase in usage of air conditioning due to change in atmospheric temperature leads to a considerable difference between the temperature inside and outside the vehicle. This variation of temperature can cause condensation of moisture on the outside of the vehicle, which leads to hampered vision from the windshield. The automotive defogger system helps remove the condensed moisture and frost from the glass in cold temperature and cold climatic countries.
The global automotive defogger market is expected to expand during the forecast period due to increase in safety and security systems and a rise in the demand for vehicles. It is essential to have a defogger system in automobiles to prevent moisture from condensing on the windshield, windows, and side-glasses, thereby enabling superior visibility. Increasing demand for safety systems along with the improved comfort features while driving is a key factor boosting the demand for automotive defogger system. Enabling better visibility on the road in different climatic conditions can also drive the automotive defogger system market. However, the high cost associated with the installation of the defogger system restrains the automotive defogger system market.
The global automotive defogger system market can be segmented based on position, type, vehicle type, region, and sales channel. In terms of position, the automotive defogger system market can be bifurcated into front windshield defogger system, rear windshield defogger system, and windows and side mirror defogger system. Based on technology, the automotive defogger system market can be divided into primary and secondary. The automotive defogger utilizes the HVAC system to blow warm air and pass it through the vehicle’s heater, followed by the dashboard, and strikes the front windshield and side windows, which are the primary systems. Similarly, secondary systems are designed to defrost the rear windshield and mirrors by using wire grids & resistive heating, which effectively defrost the ice and remove condensation. The parallel linear resistive conductors present on the windshield are connected in series to remove condensation. Based on vehicle type, the automotive defogger system market can be segmented into passenger vehicle and commercial vehicle. Increased production of passenger vehicles around the world is expected to drive the passenger vehicle segment of the market during the forecast period. Based on sales channel, the global automotive defogger system market can be split into OEMs and aftermarket. Major share of the automotive defogger system market is being held by the OEMs segment, as they provide defoggers in all segments of vehicles. In terms of region, the automotive defogger system market can be divided into Europe, North America, Latin America, Middle East & Africa, and Asia Pacific. The market in Asia Pacific is also expected to expand during the forecast period, as countries such as India and China, in the region, are among the top producer of automobiles, and they are also a major users, exporters, and importers of vehicles.
Key players operating in the global automotive defogger system market include Shenzhen Haohaichang Industrial Co., Ltd., NXP Semiconductors, Delphi Automotive Plc., Toyoda Gosei, Denso Corporation, Dayco Canada Corp., DuPont, Gates Corporation, Planned Product LLC, and Henkel Corporation.
