Automotive Optoelectronics Market to Register Steady Growth During 2015-2025

There has been a paradigm shift in automotive technologies that has given rise to the extensive development of electronic and safety components in automobiles. The dependence of vehicles on electronic components and safety devices has increased rapidly over the past few years, resulting in an increased use of electronic components in vehicles. Optoelectronic components possess the capability to source, detect and control light in an automotive. Electronic components majorly are used in powertrain systems to improve their function and efficiency. These components assists powertrain systems of an automobile to exchange messages, sense signals and control their operations. There are various types of sensors that are used in powertrain systems such as turbine speed sensor, transmission fluid temperature sensor and throttle position sensor.

Optoelectronics are increasingly being used in new cars to automate the vehicle functions such as brake lights and headlights. Optoelectronics is gradually being integrated with automotive safety systems such as night vision where infrared sensors and lens detect objects in low light. Extensive use of electronic components in automobiles has resulted in a considerable dependence on optoelectronics in almost every vehicle manufactured today. The global automotive optoelectronics market is anticipated to witness a healthy growth rate over the forecast period with the increasing penetration rate of image sensors and high capacity batteries in cars coupled with energy efficient LEDs. Regulation supporting the use of LEDs expected to immensely benefit the automotive optoelectronics market over the forecast period. The global automotive optoelectronics market is likely to accelerate with greater use of electronic and hybrid vehicles. Optoelectronics are widely used to isolate the on-board batteries and high-voltage components in vehicles.
