Automotive Auto Dimming Mirror Market: Introduction

Automotive auto dimming mirrors are a type of driver aids with the purpose of minimizing glare generated by the headlight beams of any trailing vehicle while travelling at night. These auto dimming mirrors are nothing but an application of electrochromic property of various materials that are imbued in the mirrors. These material change hue and colour whenever they are activated by an external stimuli. The desired darkening of the mirrors is achieved with the help of glare sensor and integrated circuitry implemented in the mirror housing itself. The implementation of automotive auto dimming mirrors was first witnessed in high end luxury vehicles, but with increased emphasis on driver and passenger safety in the recent years has prompted the automotive OEMs to install in entry level vehicles as well. Automotive auto dimming mirrors are a part of vision based safety systems expected for a steady growth in the market in the forthcoming years.

Automotive Auto Dimming Mirror Market Dynamics

Technological advancements in automotive industry has been continuously evolving over the past few years. The vehicle manufacturers usually focus on performance improvement, cost reduction, fuel efficiency and driver assistance systems, hence prompting the automotive component manufacturers to bring about latest innovations for the vehicles. Automotive auto dimming mirror is no exception, which falls under the category of driver assistance systems. In addition to darkening the reflective surface of the mirror, various manufactures have also implemented additional features into it such as real time location information, vehicle information and temperature readings. The latest trend observed in the automotive auto dimming mirror market is the incorporation of pixelated digital display which can showcase images in full colour. These displays function in tandem with cameras located in various spots of a vehicle. Other features include ambient lighting tags, microphones and telematics modules. These additions significantly increases the overall cost of the mirror hence, its implementation is expected to commence from high end luxury vehicles. One of the major challenges for the manufacturers associated with the market is finding the perfect balance between reducing glare by darkening the surface and maintaining high visibility so as to not distract the driver from the road.
