This industry research report identifies Sunny Optical, Nidec Sankyo, Hitachi Maxell, Sekonix, and Fujifilm as the key vendors in the global automotive optic lenses in safety system (AOLSS) market. This industry research report presents a competitive analysis of the market by geographical regions such as the Americas, APAC, and EMEA. The report presents a detailed analysis of the major factors that drive and challenge market growth and also the key market trends.

Overview of the global automotive optic lenses in safety system (AOLSS) market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict the global automotive optic lenses in safety system (AOLSS) market to grow steadily over the next four years. Based on unit shipments, the analysts estimates that the market will post a CAGR of more than 20% and almost 46% by 2020 by pessimistic sizing and optimistic sizing methodology respectively. This market research analysis identifies the introduction of high-resolution 360-degree cameras as one of the primary factors that will influence the growth of the automotive optic lenses in safety system market. Technological advances in the recent years have led to the evolution of the automotive advanced driver assistance systems such as lane departure warning system and automotive surround view systems where these systems can now provide drivers with 3D images from any angle. The latest systems from vendors such as Bosch and Continental can now create a full 360-degree 3D view of the vehicle, showing any obstacle surrounding the vehicle which aids in parking. Also, the TDA 2× based surround-view system from Texas Instruments provides seamless stitching through advanced geometric and photometric alignment algorithms that can be efficiently implemented by digital signal processors.

This market study identifies the replacement of conventional lenses by off-axis wide-angle lenses in automotive camera modules to be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market during the next four years. The field of view (FOV) of rear view cameras that assist in parking is usually over 140 degrees. Wider FOVs produce higher aberrations, which increases the number of field elements required to correct the aberrations, in turn, leading to an increase in the cost. This will result in the advent of a solution that involves the creation of a new optical system using an off-axis optical system and a freeform surface, wherein only the area of interest is imaged on the sensor. This reduces the sensor load and also helps in decreasing the degree of required image post processing.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of a handful number of vendors and is dominated by the key players such as Sunny Optical, Nidec Sankyo, Hitachi Maxell, Sekonix, and Fujifilm.
