Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2037

Automotive Night Vision System Market size is expected to reach USD 15.37 billion by the end of 2037, growing at a CAGR of 11.34% during the forecast period i.e., 2024-2037. In the year 2023, the industry size of automotive night vision system was over USD 3.43 billion. Demand for products such as antiglare glasses, advanced headlights, and security features to improve visibility and driver alertness could be stimulated by the increased risk of accidents at night. In addition, market demand can also be supported by the need for legal representation and insurance claims related to accidents at night. In the United States, a total of 35,766 fatal traffic accidents occurred in 2020. Additionally, 1,593,390 crashes took place that injured people and 3,621,681 caused property damage.

The growing global emphasis on road safety, evidenced by increasing government regulations, is a key driver of the market for night vision in cars. A concomitant increase in demand for new automotive technologies is emerging as authorities around the world step up their efforts to reduce traffic accidents and improve driver safety. The market's trajectory is reinforced by the requirement that safety features, including night vision systems, be incorporated into vehicles.

Automotive Night Vision System Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Sales of Luxury Cars - The growth of luxury car sales is expected to be the driving force for a worldwide automotive night vision system market that will grow strongly. Luxury car manufacturers are increasingly incorporating cutting edge technologies, such as night vision systems, in order to differentiate their products due to the growing preference of discriminating consumers for advanced safety features. In order to take advantage of this trend and secure a strong position on the growing worldwide automotive night vision market, it is necessary for market operators who wish to capitalise on these trends to prioritise R&D initiatives aimed at meeting evolving expectations from luxury car owners. New vehicle sales in the US registering sale of 1,082,620 units for the month of January represented an increase of 2.2% from one year ago in January 2023. 
  • Integration of ADAS in Vehicles - The global automotive night vision system market is expected to grow during the forecast period due to the integration of advanced driver assistance systems. ADAS synergizes with autonomous night vision technologies, including features such as Adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance. By providing real-time data and predictive insight, this integration improves overall vehicle safety, especially under low-light conditions. The collaboration will ensure a more accurate and effective experience of autonomous driving, fostering consumer confidence and market adoption.


  • Limited Detection Range - The development of autonomous driving technologies is likely to be a catalyst for significant growth in the autonomous night vision industry over the forecast period. The need for strong night vision is paramount as vehicles move toward a higher level of autonomy. In order to cope with a wide range of challenging situations, in particular under dim light conditions, automatic vehicles rely on advanced sensors for their ability to detect. Night vision systems, which provide an additional layer of security, play a major role in increasing the range of autonomous vehicles' visibility. In the dark, such systems allow for a more comprehensive detection of obstacles and pedestrians with infrared sensors as well as thermal imaging.
  • The high cost of night vision systems is set to hinder automotive night vision system market growth in the upcoming period
  • Integration complexity is anticipated to hamper the market growth in the projected period

Automotive Night Vision System Segmentation

Vehicle Type (Passenger Cars, Commercial Vehicles)

Based on vehicle type, the passenger car segment is expected to reach USD 12.80 billion by the end of 2037. This system helps improve driver visibility during night driving and enhances safety by detecting objects, pedestrians, or animals on the road in passenger cars. Preventing accidents caused by low visibility conditions is also helpful. This technology is helping to reduce the risks associated with poor visibility when driving commercial vehicles in dark roads. In the future, the growth of this segment will be driven by the expansion of passenger cars with these features. According to industry estimates, in the last calendar year about 4.1 million passenger cars were sold on the local market, an increase of around 8.2% as compared with sales of 3.79 million vehicles in 2022.

Technology (Far Infrared, Near Infrared)

In terms of technology, the far infrared segment is anticipated to surpass USD 9.86 billion by 2037. A more comprehensive layer of perception is provided by the FIR camera. The FIR camera scans the infrared spectrum just beyond visible light to detect objects that may be missed by radar, LiDAR, or cameras. In vehicles, night vision sensors are becoming more common. In the detection of vehicles in infrared images, a variety of methods using infrared sensors are proposed.
