TrendForce's latesrt research shows the penetration rate of LED headlights exceeds 60 percent in 2021

TrendForce's 2020-2021 'Global Automotive LED Product Trend and Regional Market Analysis' research indicates, the global penetration rate of LED headlights exceeds 60 percent in 2021 with penetration in new energy vehicles (NEV) exceeding 90 percent, according to TrendForce's latest investigations.

Influenced by growth momentum from increasing automotive market shipments and the rising penetration rate of LED lighting, global automotive LED market value is estimated to be valued at $3.51 billion in 2021, a 31.8 percent YoY growth rate. This demonstrates that LED headlights and automotive display LED products remain the main driving force for growth in the automotive LED market.

Although the automotive semiconductor shortage has led to manufacturing bottlenecks among some car manufacturers, since car manufacturers have asked LED producers to continue production, the purchase order status of major automotive LED manufacturers will not be affected before the end of 2021. Among the 2021 revenue rankings of automotive LED manufacturers, the top three companies remain Ams-Osram, Nichia, and Lumileds. These three account for a combined market share of as much as 71.7 percent.

For automotive lighting, Ams-Osram has leveraged stable product quality, excellent lighting efficiency, and cost performance to make it the supplier of choice for the world's high-end cars and new energy vehicles, including high-flying Tesla among its customers. This year, Ams-Osram's automotive LED revenue grew rapidly and has an opportunity to reach $1.304 billion by year's end for an annual growth rate of approximately 40.9 percent. Samsung LED's PixCell LED has also been successfully integrated into the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y, boosting its automotive LED revenue growth to as much as $121 million with market share expected to increase to 3.4 percent.

In terms of display backlighting including dashboard and central console displays, not only are more and more car models equipped with automotive display products, the standard is moving towards larger displays with the current mainstream automotive panel product size at 12.3-inches. Further taking into account features popular in the current market such as HDR, local dimming, and wide color gamut shows that automotive LED market demand will maintain a rapid growth trend in the next five years. This will benefit the revenue of Nichia and Stanley with this year's market share for these two companies expected to reach 23.1 percent and 6.6 percent, respectively.

Relying on the high brightness and compact size of their WICOP product, Seoul Semiconductor's penetration rate of the automotive headlight market has reached 10 percent and WICOP has been adopted by car manufacturers including Changan Automobile, SAIC-GM-Wuling, and Nio. Revenue is forecast to reach $155 million with a market share of approximately 4.4 percent. It is worth mentioning, benefiting from European customer orders, Dominant has the highest annual revenue growth out of the top ten companies in the industry at 46.3 percent
