Major Challenges:

  • High cost associated with repairing ADAS technologies 
    • Automotive ADAS technologies have been around for years, but their adoption depends on repair costs. Vehicles with ADAS are expensive to fix, impacting their uptake, especially in emerging markets where customers watch their wallets closely. With emerging economies leading in new vehicle sales, there's a pressing need to cut ADAS repair costs. Even developed nations feel the pinch; repairing an AFL system in the US can top $1,000, leaving customers unhappy and slowing ADAS adoption.
    • This high cost hurts the global market for automotive adaptive front lighting systems. Adding to the challenge, prominent economies struggle with a shortage of skilled technicians. This shortage jacks up repair costs further, as skilled technicians are crucial for proper ADAS calibration. By 2026, the US alone will need around 46,000 skilled automotive technicians, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    • With the global automotive industry already short on skilled workers, repair and maintenance costs will keep climbing. Technavio predicts this shortage will hinder growth in the global automotive adaptive front lighting system market in the coming years.
