Research and Markets: Global and Chinese Automotive Instrument Industry Report, 2013

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global and Chinese Automotive Instrument Industry Report, 2013" report to their offering.

In 2012, the market size of global automotive instrument industry claimed USD12.9 billion, with the targeted figure in 2013 and 2014 soaring to USD14.1 billion and USD16.2 billion, respectively. The big rise comes as the fact that low- and medium-range automotive models are shifting towards all-digital TFT-LCD instrument from mechanical ones while top-grade automobiles are mostly employing TFT-LCD with ever-increasing display size. For example, the latest edition of Benz S Class employs 12-inch TFT-LCD, so does Citron Grand C4 Picasso whose 12-inch TFT-LCD instrument were provided by Magneti Marelli.

Another driving force comes from HUD. It is very likely that Infotainment and HUD will integrate together. Moreover, a majority of instrument makers are also involved in the production of Infotainment, with cases in point including AisinAW and DENSO from Japan, Visteon and Delphi from the US, Continental from Germany and Mobis from South Korea.

By 2020, the worldwide sales volume of automobiles equipped with HUD is projected to jump from 1.2 million in 2012 to 15.8 million in 2012. And the figure this year is estimated to increase 7% over the preceding year. In 2012, only 2% sold automobiles were equipped with HUD, and the targeted figure by 2020 will grow to 19%. In 2010, the assembly rate of HUD system for Japanese cars topped the list, but Japan will lose out to Europe by 2020 in this regard. In addition, DLP is likely to replace high-priced laser projection, cutting down the cost substantially. Besides, LCOS technology will see breakthroughs and is likely to present striking performance in low-end HUD.

In 2013, the market size of China automotive instrument industry approximated USD2.4 billion, with the expected figure by 2017 hitting USD4 billion. The massive surge is attributable to the reason that most of low- and medium-end passenger cars will replace old-fashioned mechanical instruments with all-digital TFT-LCD. For now, there have BYD models equipped with TFT-LCD instrument.
