Changing dynamics of rear lighting

Changing dynamics of rear lighting

Publication Date: 17-Nov-2021

A vehicle’s rear lights serve the single most critical function of letting road users (including the vehicle drivers following behind) know its presence on the road, especially when driving during night.

Such lights also contribute to safer driving by letting road users know the driver’s maneuvers, such as slowing down, stopping, reversing, changing lanes, and turning left or right at the traffic signal.

In addition to safety, the rear light has also become an important tool for automakers in vehicle styling. Automakers are using advanced lighting technology to make vehicles more appealing to customers. Rear lighting helps these automakers in brand differentiation and personalization of their vehicles against their competitors.

The use of light-emitting diode (LED) lights, which was first used in a rear light application in late 1980, has completely transformed the rear light. More advanced light sources including mini- and micro-LEDs as well as organic LED (OLED) should further revolutionize rear lighting in vehicles.

This report offers a comprehensive analysis of the above changes in rear lighting and analyzes key markets for rear lighting as well as major suppliers in this field. In addition, sourcing strategies of automakers for rear lights are discussed.
