The Global Automotive Lighting Market size hits approximately USD26 billion (including USD21.2 billion generated by OEM) in 2014, representing an increase of 8.8% over 2013. The growth of the OEM market is mainly driven by two factors:
First, the automobile shipment in China and the United States surges, especially the Chinese market has still maintained the growth rate of about 10% after the high-speed growth in 2013. Second, the extensive use of xenon lamps and LED raises the unit price.
By 2015, China’s economy will slow down further, so that the automotive market cannot continue to grow at 10%, whilst the American market will also decelerate. The global automotive lighting market is estimated to be USD27.6 billion in 2015, up 6.2%.

The second category is expected to occupy about 13% share and the third category 14% in 2016.
The fast-growing Chinese market has stimulated producers to conduct massive capacity expansion.
