This market research report analyzes the key players in the automotive defogger system market such as Delphi, DENSO, DuPont, and NXP Semiconductors. The report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by end-markets (OEMs and aftermarket) and by geography (Asia, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Africa, and North America).

Global outlook of the automotive defogger system market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict that the global automotive defogger system market will grow steadily during the predicted period and in terms of unit shipments, will post a CAGR of almost 4% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the application of advanced intelligent sensors in defoggers to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of the car defogger market in the coming years. Sensors detect changes in the chemical and physical processes and send electronic pulses to initiate logical operations for carrying out corrective measures. Usually used for applications such as monitoring pressure, wheel speed, temperature, fluid level, and emission, sensors are now increasingly being used for applications such as passenger safety and vehicle security. Defogger manufacturers will soon start using humidity sensors that measure humidity by the amount of adsorption and desorption of water vapor molecules and also temperature sensors that can sense the difference in temperature between the inside and outside environments of a vehicle, in modern defoggers.

The introduction of hot wire anemometer in defogger systems will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in the automotive car window defroster market in the coming years. Hot wire or thermal anemometers are normally used to measure fluid velocity by measuring the heat lost into the environment. They can provide an accurate measure of the car defroster’s airflow and can help drivers in maintaining clear visibility even during extreme weather conditions.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of few windshield defroster manufacturers who are the same as heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) providers and few aftermarket players who provide portable defogger systems. The major vendors constantly focus on introducing new products which helps them gain a competitive advantage and have also started acquiring smaller and regional vendors to expand their product portfolio. For instance, one of the major manufacturers Delphi, recently introduced Delphi RACam, an integrated radar and camera and also acquired HellermannTyton Group, a company that produces high-performance and innovative cable management solutions.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Delphi
  • DuPont
  • NXP Semiconductors

Segmentation by end-markets and analysis of the automotive defogger system market

  • Aftermarket
  • Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs)

The use of HVAC systems that change cabin temperatures and lead to fog or mist formation on windshields is identified to be the primary reason for multiple fatal crashes. As a result, several government regulatory bodies across the globe have started mandating the use of defoggers, which will induce OEMs to provide defoggers as a standard fitment in their automobiles. According to this market research and analysis, the OEM segment will dominate the windshield defogger market throughout the next four years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the automotive defogger system market

  • Asia
  • Europe
  • Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa
  • North America

In terms of geographical regions, Asia will be the major revenue contributor to the automotive defogger system market. Tax and fiscal incentives provided by the governments of various countries in this region and the presence of major raw material manufacturers in countries such as Indonesia, China, Thailand, India, South Korea, and Vietnam, will attract automotive manufacturers to start manufacturing facilities in this region, which will in turn, aid in increasing the demand for automotive defoggers.

During humid conditions or rainy season, the moisture content in the air forms a thick layer over the windscreen of a vehicle, making it impossible to see through the screen. This causes a lot of inconvenience and difficulty for the person behind the wheel. A defogger, demister, or defroster is used to clear the misty layer and water droplets that condense on the windscreen of the car. A defogger can be made to work more efficiently by using certain advanced components including a sensor, timer, climatronics, and thermal imaging. The use of defogger in cars helps prevent accidents by allowing the driver to see clearly through the glass.
