Global automotive lighting market size was USD25.3 billion in 2014, and is expected to grow by 10.8% to USD28 billion in 2015, the highest growth rate since 2010, and reach USD30.1 billion in 2016, a year-on-year rise of 7.5%. There are two reasons for significant expansion of automotive lighting market. One is substantial improvement in the penetration of LED. As the price of LED chip continues to drop, more and more companies adopt LED to make headlamps.

EU now is the focus of global TPMS. On the one hand, its OEM demand for TPMS is expected to hit 16.65 million sets, surpassing the United States as the world’s largest market, and on the other hand, considerable AM demand for TPMS is brought about. Harsh winter in many EU countries makes snow tire an additional necessity for new vehicles. Hence, the introduction of mandatory regulations on TPMS in Nov first created demand for TPMS from snow tire. EU will become the world’s largest TPMS market, either OEM or AM.

This report concerns power electronics for electric vehicles with the emphasis on the largest market, that for on-road vehicles, particularly cars and buses. It is intended for those seeking to invest, support, develop, make, sell or use power electronics and their components and associated services. It will also assist those participating in the value chain of linked devices, such as batteries, supercapacitors, in-wheel systems, transmissions and electric motors, to understand the considerable opportunities for both collaborative use of their components and even merging with power electronics.

Today, the LEV industry is dominated by large bicycle companies, due to their access to distribution. We explain why, in the future, these companies will face major competition from, and may be pushed aside by car, motorcycle, and car parts companies. Supply chains for motors, batteries, chassis parts, and nearly every LEV component exist in Asia, primarily in China, Taiwan, Japan, and newly emerging South Korea. We reveal where the highest profits will be obtained in future and the opportunities in components as these change with lithium-ion batteries of several generations and supercapacitors being increasingly employed, for example. The more demanding future technical requirements of users and standards are investigated.

New research finds that the global sale of hybrid and pure electric cars will rise to over $185 billion in 2025 as they are transformed in most respects. For example, components are becoming integrated, the range extender as an optional extra breaks down the difference between pure electric and hybrid and car manufacturers vertically integrate and collaborate, competing with their suppliers.

The electric vehicle business will approach a massive $500 billion in 2025 with the traction motors being over $25 billion. Their design, location and integration is changing rapidly. Traction motors propelling land, water and air vehicles along can consist of one inboard motor or - an increasing trend - more than one near the wheels, in the wheels, in the transmission or ganged to get extra power. Integrating is increasing with an increasing number of motor manufacturers making motors with integral controls and sometimes integral gearing. Alternatively they may sell motors to the vehicle manufacturers or to those integrating them into transmission. These complex trends are explained with pie charts, tables, graphs and text and future winning suppliers are identified alongside market forecasts. There are sections on newly important versions such as in-wheel, quadcopter and outboard motor for boats.
