Fog lights are used as a safety measure in the car during reduced visibility circumstances due to severe climatic conditions such as heavy rainfall, snow, dust and fog. They are placed by the manufacturing factory at the lower part of the vehicle or mounted on the front bumper which are designed to be used at low speed and help the drivers to see road edges, lane markings etc.
Fog lights are sometimes interchangeably used by drivers with driving lights, but these two are different from each other. Fog lights are designed to use in extremely poor visibility conditions which clears the path for the driver as well as make the other drivers aware about the presence of a vehicle in the fog.

Additionally, the increasing production of automobiles is expanding the market of fog lights. Further, the life span of an automobile is about 15-20 years, which is expanding the aftermarket for fog light. With a limited lifespan, the fog lights need to be changed subsequently. These factors are anticipated to boost the growth of the market over the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027.
