“Increasing awareness about passenger and vehicle safety and trend of integrating additional features in the mirror are expected to fuel the demand for automotive rear-view mirror”
The automotive rear-view market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.39% during the forecast period, to reach a market size of USD 12.97 billion by 2022. According to the Global status report on road safety 2015, published by World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1.2 million road traffic deaths occur each year globally. Hence, as a safety measure, all vehicles are required to have rear-view mirrors. OEMs are also integrating features such as auto dimming and blind spot detection into the mirror. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, nearly 840,000 blind spot accidents occur each year in the U.S. The increasing awareness about passenger and vehicle safety and trend of integrating additional features into the mirrors are the key factors driving the automotive rear-view mirror market. On the other hand, the key factor restraining the market growth is the high replacement cost of the smart rear-view mirror.
“Passenger car is the fastest growing vehicle segment of the automotive rear-view mirror market”
The passenger car segment is estimated to dominate the automotive rear-view mirror market during the forecast period. According to the Organization Internationale des Constructeurs d'Automobiles (OICA), the global new passenger car sales increased from 55.8 million units in 2010 to 69.4 million units in 2016. The increase in the number of passenger cars, combined with the increasing adoption of the smart rear-view mirror, makes passenger cars the fastest growing vehicle segment of the rear-view mirror market. The rapid increase in the adoption of safety and comfort features in passenger cars plays a significant role in the increasing demand for mirrors in passenger cars.
“Door mounted mirror is the largest segment of the automotive rear-view mirror market”
Based on mounting location, the rear-view mirror market is segmented into body mounted exterior rear-view mirror and door mounted exterior rear-view mirror. Mounting a mirror on the door reduces the aerodynamic drag and retains the strength of ‘A’ pillar of the vehicle. In the case of passenger cars, rear-view mirrors are usually mounted on the door. However, in the case of trucks and buses, external mirrors are mounted on the vehicle body. With OEMs preference for door mounted mirror, the door mounted mirror is expected to be the largest segment of the automotive rear-view mirror market.
“Asia-Pacific region is the largest and fastest growing rear-view mirror market”
The Asia-Pacific region is estimated to lead the rear-view market owing to increasing vehicle production in countries such as China and India. The vehicle production in these countries is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4–5% over the period of next five years. Also, the penetration of rear-view mirrors equipped with features is growing rapidly in these countries owing to increasing adoption of these mirrors by OEMs. This will lead to increased demand for rear-view mirrors in this region during the forecast period.
