Market Report Description

The Global Automotive HUD Market size is expected to reach $4.6 billion by 2028, rising at a market growth of 30.7% CAGR during the forecast period.

An automotive Head-Up Display (HUD) is a transparent surface in automobiles that displays brilliantly lighted graphics and videos. These serve three main advantages and prerequisites. One is the capability to project information onto a driver, improving the interaction between both the driver and the car and enhancing safety.

Another is to make sure that all pertinent information is accurately shown in a variety of ambient settings because people drive cars throughout the day. The third is to enable the driver to maintain their attention on the road while viewing the necessary information that they would typically need to look away from the road to see. A HUD is an advanced tool that increases safety.

This system might be integrated during production or added later. Automotive HUDs essentially has three components. The first component is a picture generation unit (PGU) which prepares data for projection by processing it from several sources. The second component is a projector that creates and controls images. The projection surface is referred to as a combiner (usually the windscreen) and is the third part of a HUD system.

A number of mirrors and lenses inside the PGU refract, reflect, focus, and magnify the images for display. Since the unit is mounted on the dashboard, the images are projected on the windscreen in a small space. The projected image is raised to the proper eye level using an optical channel between two levels of treated laminated glass. This technology is not new and it started as an image showing the car's actual speed which was projected onto the lower portion of the windshield in the driver's field of vision.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Vehicle sales have been adversely impacted by plant closures around the world. Also, the cancellation and delay of international trade events have had a significant negative impact on cash flow in the automobile head-up display (HUD) sector. The automobile industry is anticipated to have a decline as a result of OEMs' lack of interest in investing in new technologies over the next one or two years. Production has been modified by manufacturers to avoid bottlenecks and plan output in accordance with OEM and Tier I manufacturer demand.

Market Growth Factors

Increasing Safety Concerns For Passengers, Vehicles, And Passersby

The primary concern for consumers of vehicles is the safety of both passengers and vehicles. The goal of regulatory bodies worldwide is to increase automobile safety. According to the Global Status Report on Road Safety, there are more than a million traffic fatalities worldwide each year. According to studies, traffic-related fatalities would become the sixth greatest cause of death worldwide in the coming years. Over 1,000 individuals are wounded in crashes that are reported to include a distracted drivers every day in the US, according to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis (NCSA).

Introduction Of Affordable Portable Huds In Economy Vehicles

The automotive business is evolving because of technological breakthroughs. In certain economy cars, features like surround-view cameras and driver assistance systems that were previously only available in luxury cars are standard. With head-up displays, the same phenomenon is gradually taking place (HUD). The 10-inch HUD in the 2018 Toyota Camry, for instance, is one of the biggest and greatest HUDs ever installed in a vehicle. Another well-known manufacturer with HUDs available in some of their vehicles is Mazda.

Market Restraining Factors

Necessity Of Increased Cockpit Space For The Installation Of Hud

The windshield-projected HUD takes up a lot of room in an automobile's cockpit. By superimposing virtual information for the driver over the external view of the traffic conditions in front of the car, advanced HUDs like augmented reality head-up displays (AR HUD) contribute to making driving more comfortable and safer. The information that is reflected seems to be a component of the actual driving situation. However, augmented reality HUDs use a substantial amount of dashboard area.

Technology Outlook

Based on technology, the Automotive HUD Market is bifurcated into Conventional HUD and Augmented Reality HUD. The conventional HUD segment witnessed the highest revenue share in the automotive HUD market in 2021. This growth is linked to the need to maintain passenger and driver safety as the top priority with affordable solutions. Initially, flight position, real-time position, acceleration, and flight path were displayed on conventional HUDs in military and aviation applications to aid pilots in making quick decisions.

Automotive HUD Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2021

HUD type Outlook

On the basis of HUD type, the Automotive HUD Market is divided into Combiner HUD and Windshield HUD. The combiner HUD segment procured a substantial revenue share in the automotive HUD market in 2021. Combiner HUD displays information in the driver's line of sight using a glass surface that is only partially reflecting. In order to enable Augmented Reality, the Combiner glass is a partially transparent display that combines digital images with the actual world.

Dimension Type Outlook

Based on dimension type, the Automotive HUD Market is segmented into 2-D HUD and 3-D HUD. The 2-D HUD segment witnessed the maximum revenue share in the automotive HUD market in 2021. Information is presented in 2D fixed orientation at a fixed distance using traditional head-up displays. Typical 2D HUD projections show information without taking into account the surrounding surroundings. When the driver is simply looking at a little amount of data, this is acceptable.

Passenger Class Outlook

On the basis of passenger class, the Automotive HUD Market is fragmented into Economy Cars, Mid-segment Cars, and Luxury Cars. The mid-segment passenger class cars segment witnessed a substantial revenue share in the automotive HUD market in 2021. Mid-segment passenger cars may be fitted with augmented reality head-up displays (HUDs), which let the driver see the road in 3D and avoid traffic and accidents while navigating. Mid-segment class is most preferred by those who want to get the benefits of automation without spending a lot.

Vehicle Type Outlook

Based on vehicle type, the Automotive HUD Market is categorized into Passenger Cars, Light Commercial Vehicles, and Heavy Commercial Vehicles. The light commercial vehicle segment garnered a significant revenue share in the automotive HUD market in 2021. Since people and stuff (goods) are typically transported over short distances by light commercial vehicles, GPS tracking is one of the most crucial jobs for these fleets. The location and distance are the crucial factors that are gathered since they show whether a vehicle is used for personal or commercial purposes.

Sales Channel Outlook

On the basis of sales channel, the Automotive HUD Market is bifurcated into OEM and Aftermarket. The original equipment manufacturer segment garnered the maximum revenue share in the automotive HUD market in 2021. More and more head-up displays are being used in contemporary premium vehicles. HUDs provided by OEMs depend on their capacity to reduce production costs through economies of scale. This gets reflected in the price of the vehicle.
