LEDinside: Chinese Automotive LED Penetration Market Analysis / EU & US Car Supply Chain

China Chinese automotive light’s development is still price-oriented when adopting LEDs. Current spec for interior automotive lights and RCL are similar with lighting LEDs and even backlight LEDs, the LED penetration rate is relatively high and similar to international level. As DRL is closely linked to the recognition of vehicles, it has seen rapid development in Chinese market over the past few years. Moreover, some Chinese automotive makers turn to low-power LEDs for DRL applications. Therefore, the market penetration of DRL in China rose to 47% in 2016.   Slow mid and high-power LED in Chinese automotive market: Due to the high technical requirement of high-power LED product segments, such as high / low beam and fog light. These light sources are mainly from international source and have low penetration rate.   US Car Market Supply Chain US automotive makers mainly adopt automotive lamps from Visteon and Hella. As North America is notorious for its tariff protection, automotive lamp factories and modules are constructed relatively close to each other, focusing on market opportunities and the reduction of assembly costs. Mexico is a popular location of such plants over the past few years.  As the suppliers of headlamps and tail lamps are not necessarily the same, the main concern lie in design and mass production ability. Meanwhile, the suppliers of tail light and interior lights are usually the same as the technical difficulties is relatively low and can be potentially purchased together.
