Automotive Headlamp Reflector Market
This report, from Stratview Research, studies the global automotive headlamp reflector market over the trend period of 2012 to 2017 and the forecast period of 2018 to 2023. The report provides detailed insights into the market dynamics to enable informed business decision making and growth strategy formulation based on the opportunities present in the market.
The global automotive headlamp reflector market is projected to reach an estimated value of US$ 774.9 million in 2023. This is likely to create a healthy growth opportunity for the entire ecosystem of the market. Organic growth in automobile production, driven by increasing disposable income and growing urbanization is the major growth driver of the global automotive headlamp reflector market. Other noticeable drivers of the market are the increasing demand for LED headlamps and an advancement in materials.
The global automotive headlamp reflector market is segmented based on the vehicle type as Passenger Car, Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV), and Medium- & Heavy-Duty Commercial Vehicle (MHCV). The passenger car is expected to remain the growth engine of the automotive headlamp reflector market during the forecast period. Large passenger car production and incorporation of advanced reflector materials are the major drivers of the segment over the next five years. Hatchback and SUVs are gaining more traction in the passenger car segment.
The global automotive headlamp reflector market is segmented based on the light type as Halogen, Xenon, LED, and Laser. Halogen is projected to maintain its dominance in the headlamp reflectors market over the next five years, driven by Asia-Pacific and rest of the world region. LED and laser are likely to be the fastest-growing light type segments over the next five years. Both developed regions (North America and Europe) have increasingly been shifting from halogen and Xenon headlamps to LED and laser headlamps. The shift is mainly attributed to the several benefits offered by LED and laser headlamps over halogen and Xenon lights, such as high energy efficiency, long life, lightweight, focused brightness, and faster illumination.
Based on the material type, the global automotive headlamp reflector market is segmented as Composites, Thermoplastics, and Others. Composite is projected to remain the most dominant material type in the automotive headlamp reflector market over the next five years. Bulk Molding Compound (BMC) is the most widely used composite material to make headlamp reflectors for all types of vehicles. It offers many a wide array of benefits over competing materials, such as an ability to manufacture complex and sharp curves, high gloss surface finish, excellent strength to weight ratio, lightweight, and excellent temperature resistance.
Based on the process type, the global automotive headlamp reflector market is classified as Injection Molding, Compression Molding, and Other Processes. Injection molding process is likely to remain the most dominant process in the global automotive headlamp reflector market during the next five years. The auto industry looks for those manufacturing processes that have an ability to fabricate a final part in merely one to two minutes. Injection molding is an ideal process for the mass production of small- to medium-sized complex and sharp parts. Both major material types; composites and non-reinforced thermoplastics, heavily rely on the injection molding process.
Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest headlamp reflector market during the forecast period. The region is also expected to generate the maximum opportunities over the next five years, driven by mainly China and India. The market dynamics of headlamp reflector in the Asia-Pacific region are broadly classified into two markets. The first is the matured automotive market, such as Japan and South Korea, where demand for headlamp reflectors has been decreasing due to the shift of automotive production to the developing economies. The second is developing economies, such as China and India, where the demand for headlamp reflector is continuously increasing with the increase in automobile production.
The supply chain of this market comprises raw material suppliers, compounders, reflector manufacturers, headlamp manufacturers, distributors, automotive OEMs, and dealers. The key automotive headlamp reflector manufacturers are Koito Manufacturing Co. Ltd, Valeo S.A., Magneti Marelli, Hella KGaA Hueck & Co., and Stanley Electric Co. Ltd. Lightweight product and strategic alliances are the key strategies adopted by the major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.
