Vehicle automatic high beam is a function of the headlamp of vehicles through which the headlamp automatically switches between low beam and high beam in order to ensure excellent forward visibility for the driver depending on road conditions. Automatic high beam system detects nearby sources of light such as the headlights or tail lights of the vehicles ahead. It is an active safety feature available in advanced vehicles.
Demand for vehicle automatic high beam system is expected to increase at a significant pace due to the rise in concern of customers toward personal safety. The vehicle automatic high beam system helps improve visibility while driving during night-time and foggy weather conditions. The technology also helps in reducing the disturbance of the flash of high beam of light on the driver from vehicles coming from the opposite direction. However, the growth of the vehicle automatic high beam market is anticipated to be affected due to the latest technologies such as adaptive intelligent front lighting system, which has the function of adjusting beam of the headlamp.
The vehicle automatic high beam market can be segmented according to the technology used in sensor such as laser sensor, ultrasonic sensor, and radar sensor. In laser sensor, laser technology is used to detect the vehicles ahead on the road. In ultrasonic sensor, ultrasonic waves are used to detect the distance between vehicles on the road. Based on the distance between vehicles, the ultrasonic sensor adjusts the beam of the headlamp of the vehicle. In radar sensor, radio frequency waves are used to detect the distance between vehicles.
The vehicle automatic high beam market can also be divided on the basis of the presence of photo resistor as vehicle with photo resistor and vehicles without photo resistor. The vehicle with photo resistor can detect the lighting on the road or of the surroundings, and in case the surroundings are well-lit, the beam strength of the vehicle is lowered. The vehicle without the photo resistor does not react to the presence or absence of light, it remains constant and acts only according to the distance of the obstructions on the road.
Based on type of vehicle, the vehicle automatic high beam market can be categorized into passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles. Passenger vehicles can be subcategorized as hatchbacks, sedans, and multi utility vehicles, whereas, commercial vehicles can be further divided into light commercial vehicles and heavy commercial vehicles.
In terms of region, the vehicle automatic high beam system market can be segmented into Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Currently, India and China dominate the headlamps market. The automatic high beam system market is expanding at a significant pace in North America and Europe owing to the presence of advanced technologies in these regions.
Key manufacturers operating in the global vehicle automatic high beam headlamps market are HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA, Magnetti Marelli S.p.A., North America Lighting, Inc., OSRAM GmbH, Advance Leading Technology Co., and KOITO MANUFACTURING CO., LTD.
