Research and Markets: Advanced Automotive Lighting Report 2013


research and markets

DUBLIN--March 8, 2013: Research and Markets (Research and Markets) has announced the addition of the "Advanced Automotive Lighting Report 2013" report to their offering.

The past decade has seen a revolution in automotive lighting, a sector that not only includes visible lighting today, but also illumination through infrared sources as lighting and driver assistance systems combine.

The lighting industry as a whole has moved rapidly from simple incandescent and gas discharge based light sources to solid-state technology in the form of light emitting diodes (LED) and organic light emitting diodes (OLED).

Moving to solid-state light sources brings a number of clear advantages, not least a significant reduction in energy use. Illumination has accounted for a significant proportion of energy use and a 50% reduction by 2025 over 2005, through the move to solid-state light sources, which is a significant achievement largely led by the automotive sector. Within the automotive sector, solid-state light sources allow an overall reduction in CO2 emissions, and light sources have a significantly longer working lifetime. Beyond the LED and close to production OLED light sources that are being incorporated in vehicles today, new light sources in development include digital micro-mirror devices (DMD) and laser technology.
