OEM-supplier strategies for lighting

Publication Date: 29-Sep-2021

There are more than 50 suppliers vying for automotive lighting business from vehicle manufacturers around the world. These include global suppliers who have a presence in almost all key automotive markets and local suppliers who are major players in a particular country or region.

The high growth potential of lighting systems is expected to appeal to more companies to join the list of automotive suppliers in the coming years, leading to higher competition. 

Apart from widespread international presence, global suppliers also have strong research and new product development capability to develop next-generation lighting solutions.

Regional suppliers, however, have a better understanding of market dynamics in a particular market. These suppliers are also focusing more enhancing their product development capability.

The original equipment manufacturer (OEM)-sourcing strategy for lighting systems is changing. Global automakers, that have mainly relied on lighting suppliers from their countries or regions for many years, are diversifying their supply base and have begun sourcing lighting systems from local suppliers as they search for higher cost competitiveness.

Local automakers, that have so far mainly sourced lighting systems from their local suppliers, are buying lighting systems for some of their new models from global suppliers as they aim for better quality and appeal of these vehicles.
